What is Strawberry Spring about?
An unrelenting, modern-day Jack the Ripper story, this podcast follows an ambitious reporter who hears the name “Springheel Jack” one day while listening to the radio. Hearing the name triggers old memories of a time when he was a student at New Sharon College during the 1960s.
From there, he recalls the first time he heard the name of this bloody serial killer and then decides to go on a hunt for him and do whatever it takes to track down the vicious murderer, even if it means he might not make it out alive.
