 Episode 118: The Future of Sherlockian Scholarship | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"have even contributed to the literature of the subject"  [REDH]  We know that the field of writings about Sherlock Holmes has been plowed thoroughly for over 100 years. In fact, it began as far back as 1902, according to some research, being thrust into the limelight with the Oxford lectures of Fr. Ronald Knox. Publications like the Baker Street Journal and the Sherlock Holmes Journal have been cranking out their issues multiple times a year since the mid-20th century, and other regular periodicals as well as hundreds upon hundreds of books have dedicated themselves to the study of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works about Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes. Does it show any sign of abating? What can we learn about the next wave of our hobby, based on looking at the past? We look at some of the cornerstones and collected works to give a sense as to what we can expect from Sherlockian scholars of the 21st century. You'll want to tune in to hear a new feature: Unnecessary Pastiche Censorship. And the usual Gas-Lamp, of course - inspired from scholarship past.

 Episode 117: Arthur and Sherlock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"It is the only personal introduction"  [SUSS]  "Just what the world needs," you tell yourself. "Another biography of Arthur Conan Doyle." Full disclosure: we thought the same thing. Until we read Arthur and Sherlock by Michael Sims.  And then our attitudes changed. And then even more so after having a conversation with the author. Fortunately, we recorded that conversation and we're sharing it with you here. Michael shared with us the impact of books on his young mind, his journey to writing, and how his earlier works on E.B. White and Henry David Thoreau inspired his style for this book. From Baring-Gould to Joseph Bell, we touch on many familiar names and go deep into this exploration of the elements that inspired Conan Doyle to create his master detective. And, if you listen carefully, you'll discover how a certain intestinal discomfort prevented Doyle from killing himself.

 Episode 116: Can't Get Enough Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"not enough to hold her back"  [YELL]   You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Sherlock Holmes news item these days. Wait — perhaps that's not the best metaphor. How about "you can't turn around without seeing a Sherlock Holmes story." Much better. We decided to pick a handful of news (and non-news) stories related to Sherlock Holmes and go to town. From Stephen Fry's recent audio recordings of the stories to using the Canon as a modern-day text for would-be Joseph Bells in training, to British shows available via a new streaming service in the US, to Sherlock Holmes as a model for writers — these stories and more make up our paean to the great detective. We freely admit in this episode that we were unable to get Stephen Fry to join us for an interview on IHOSE. Perhaps something can be done? Plus, Lyndsay Faye inspired our Gas-Lamp with her piece "Why We Can't Get Enough of Sherlock Holmes." And we're beginning to feature full transcripts of each episode. You'll find the transcript for Episode 116 below.   And please consider joining our Patreon community.

 Episode 115: Sherlock Holmes and the Theater | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"we might appear to be two theatre-goers"  [CHAS]  Tim Greer, BSI ("The Ragged Shaw") joins us for this episode in which we explore some of the intricacies and challenges of producing Sherlock Holmes on the stage. For anyone who's been to a major gathering of Sherlockians in the last few years, Tim should be no stranger. From his home base in Memphis to 221B Con and the BSI Weekend, he's been seen in exquisite and faithful costumes inspired by William Gillette, Jeremy Brett an Basil Rathbone. Tim is an award winning Sherlockian, having been honored with the Beacon Award from the Beacon Society and the Morley Montgomery Award for the best article in the Baker Street Journal in 2014. Tim's specialty is the theater, and he shares his inspiration with us, ranging from the difficulty in physically portraying a cerebral character to the proper staging and set decoration of the sitting rooms at 221B Baker Street. Sherlock Holmes has been presented on stage in one way or another for 125 years and there continue to be many interpretations and inspirations ahead. Plus, a new Sherlock Holmes Brand ad and a special Easter egg.   And please consider joining our Patreon community.

 Episode 114: Escape with Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"Has anything escaped me?"  [HOUN]   There's a reason Vincent Starrett wrote "Here, though the world explode, these two survive,/ And it is always eighteen ninety-five." Whether it was in the 1940s or today, the world offers a up a variety of stressors and developments that cause one to wish to simply forget about it all for a while. Hence, the concept of escapism. The pastime of Sherlock Holmes is a form of escapism, and we explore what it means, the origin of the phrase, and how it differs from procrastination. And there were a number of individuals in the Canon who were escaping from something or who wished to bury themselves in some sort of distraction or hobby. From Irene Adler to Selden, Hugh Boone to Brunton, J. Neil Gibson to Elsie Cubitt, there were reasons to withdraw and escape; and Stapleton, Baron Gruner, and Sherlock Holmes himself had hobbies that kept them otherwise occupied from time to time. Plus, we wrap up with an escapist Gas-Lamp: Bill Schweikert's "A Long Evening with Holmes."   And please consider joining our Patreon community.

 Episode 112: Anno Holmes 130 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"their celebrated colleague" [VALL]  It's 2017 and we're back from the BSI Weekend, with tales of friends, listeners, authors and more. This year marks Sherlock Holmes's 130th year with the public and there is much to celebrate. Things we learned included Bonnie MacBird's next Sherlock Holmes novel that involves whisky; a future edition of a Sherlock Holmes companion from Cambridge University Press; the Society of Illustrators has a wonderful cafe, where we held the annual meeting of the Three Hours for Lunch Club, and subsequently, we'll be recommending Frederic Dorr Steele as a future Hall of Fame Member at the Society. We debate the possibility of or need for regular electronic updates of the eBSJ archives — or even a concurrent digital option of the Journal — leading to a broader discussion of print versus digital publications. And of course we touch on the latest goings-on with Sherlock. The Gas-Lamp this time is made up of the lyrics of the Harvey Officer song "On the Road to Baker Street," with abject apologies to Rudyard Kipling, Frank Sinatra, and anyone with a musical ear.   And please consider joining our Patreon community.

 Episode 111: A Hip Hop Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"Yes, Mr. Holmes, I teach music." [SOLI]  It's our final show of 2016, we welcome Karen Wilson to the program to discuss a variety of musical associations of hers with Sherlock Holmes. From teaching to composing to performing, she does it all, and incorporates that into her Sherlockian pursuits. We're treated to one of the best toasts of the year, "Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street," performed for us by Karen. It was inspired by "Alexander Hamilton" from the hit musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and it does not disappoint. Karen shares with us her muse, the creative process, her other inspirations and more in this memorable interview. Plus, a solution for getting kids to put down those pesky electronic devices.

 Episode 110: Sociable and Clubbable | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"It is for the convenience of these that the Diogenes Club was started" [GREE]  Sherlockian societies are literally everywhere. Go ahead and check — we'll wait. And just as there are many things that make them unique, there are just as many that bind them together. Whether it's traditions, geography, frequency, or program style, Sherlock Holmes is at the center of it all. And while Sherlock and his brother Mycroft felt right at home at the Diogenes Club, which was created for the most unsociable and unclubbable men around, Sherlockian gatherings exist for just the opposite reason. We band together because we're gregarious people and we have a common love of all things related to the Sherlock Holmes stories. Burt's recent travels have taken him to a number of Sherlock Holmes groups, and he reflects on what's special about each. You might find some confluence with groups you belong to; or perhaps there are stark differences. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think other interested Sherlockians should know about your local group's traditions. Listen along to hear about these and other discoveries, including Scott's revelation that there's a difference between the Hoboken Free State and the Hoboken-free state. Top it off with our Gas-Lamp, the poem "The Friendship Club" by Charles E. Lauterbach, which appeared in the 1958 Baker Street Journal Christmas Annual.

 Episode 109: Behind the Canonical Screen | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"Holmes crouched down behind the screen" [HOUN]  Every four years, the Baker Street Irregulars host a conference of sorts. We shared some of our impressions with you from the Chautauqua conference in Episode 104. This time, we step back to the conference immediately preceding it - Behind the Canonical Screen, which took place in Los Angeles at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in 2012. We're joined by Lyndsay Faye, BSI ("Kitty Winter"), ASH and Ashley Polasek, ASH, who co-edited the book containing the papers and presentations from the conference, Sherlock Holmes: Behind the Canonical Screen, published by the BSI Press. They tell us about the goings-on at the conference, of watching the screenings while attending an academic symposium, the power of symbolism, costume and more.

 Episode 108: Becoming a Sherlockian | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"If a man has a hobby, he follows it up" [ILLU]  One of the perennially favorite sets of episodes is the Sherlockian 101 series we did (originally Episode 4 and Episode 5). Many of our longtime listeners may have heard these, but some may not have listened to them in a while. And we recognize that we may have new listeners who may not have gone through our extensive back catalog. Therefore, we decided to resurrect and combine these episodes into one larger show to help you understand just what goes in to this little hobby of ours. From the original stories, to the advent of Sherlock Holmes as a pop culture figure, our love of all things Victorian and just getting started, you'll get a good grounding in the language and customs of our hobby. Then, we'll help you understand the community of people that we call Sherlockians (or is that Holmesians?) who have been at this for over 100 years.

 Episode 106: The Ebb and Flow of Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"now bright, now faint, as the burning poison waxed or waned" [TWIS] After nearly 130 years in print, it seems like the phenomenon of Sherlock Holmes may have peaked. And yet, it's likely that every generation may have thought that - including the one in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was still writing the original stories. We've often said that every generation has its Sherlock Holmes, and when we move beyond the printed page, it's quite true. From William Gillette to Eille Norwood, Arthur Wontner to Basil Rathbone, Ronald Howard to Douglas Wilmer and Peter Cushing, not to mention Robert Stephenson, Nicol Williamson, Jeremy Brett, Robert Downey, Jr., Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch. These are just a handful of names from two forms of media. Sherlock Holmes fades but manages to come back, with no sign of abatement. Each time, the fandom receives a shot in the arm and there's a high-water mark left when the tide recedes. Then, it happens again, perhaps increasing slightly. But the interest in the character remains. In this episode, we look at the cultural phenomena behind Sherlock Holmes and the impact that the character and his portrayers have had on us. We can't forget the news, the Editor's Gas-Lamp (from Autumn 2000, Vol. 50, No. 3 of the Baker Street Journal), and more. Please consider becoming a regular supporter of us on Patreon.

 Episode 105: Echoes of Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"The detectives and I must have echoed it" [VALL]  Laurie R. King, BSI ("The Red Circle") and Leslie S. Klinger, BSI ("The Abbey Grange") are no strangers to the mystery genre. Laurie is probably best known for her Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes stories, and Les has annotated the Sherlock Holmes stories, Dracula, Sandman and H.P. Lovecraft. Together, the two have edited two anthologies of stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Sherlock and In the Company of Sherlock Holmes. They're back at it again with a third volume, Echoes of Sherlock Holmes, and we sit down with them to discuss what it's like pulling together the work from a wide variety of mystery writers. If you'd like to see Laurie and Les in person, they'll be at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona on October 1 at 2:00 pm; and at Book Passage in Corte Madera, California on October 8 at 5:00 pm. And there will be a celebration of the publication of Echoes of Sherlock Holmes via the Sherlock Holmes Breakfast Club in Los Angeles on October 9 at 3:00 pm.

 Episode 104: Sherlockians at Chautauqua | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"I had never heard of the institution" [GREE]  Every four years, the Baker Street Irregulars, the New York-based literary society dedicated to studying Sherlock Holmes, arranges an excursion somewhere in the United States. These events happen outside of the usual BSI Weekend, and like the weekend itself, are open to all interested Sherlockians. The first in 2004 took the group to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania to the locales that inspired The Valley of Fear; then in 2008, the group went to Salt Lake City on the trail of A Study in Scarlet; in 2012, Los Angeles played host to a film-related conference. And in 2016, the group headed to the Chautauqua Institution for "The Mind and Art of Sherlock Holmes." And this time, we were there! We managed to not only listen to and see some wonderful presentations, but we gave one of our own on the future of our little publication. But in the meantime, we nabbed a few of the speakers and got their stories — stories that went beyond the presentations. We even have some audio (and video clips below) of Philip Carli at the piano during the silent showings of the William Gillette film and Eille Norwood shorts. We even have some breaking news on a newly-discovered silent Sherlock Holmes film — the last one ever produced, in 1929. Join us to hear why this hobby is about more than the collective events and publications; it's about relationships. Please consider becoming a regular supporter of us on Patreon.

 Episode 103: Coupling with Sherlock Holmes — Al & Julie Rosenblatt | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"they were said to be a most united couple." [DANC]  You might call them the first couple of the Baker Street Irregulars. Albert ("Inspector Bradstreet") and Julia ("Mrs. Turner") Rosenblatt have graced the Sherlockian scenes as a couple since the early 1970s. We had a chance to visit them at their home in New York, where we heard about a little girl named Margie and an unrelated trip to Meiringen were responsible for sparking the interest that led to so many amazing things. From arranging the quinquennial Sherlockian dinners at the Culinary Institute of America with Master Chef Fritz Sonnenschmidt, BSI ("Simpson's") to writing Dining with Sherlock Holmes, and providing us with the BSI year-in-review in verse and a second generation Sherlockian, Al and Julie have been sparking plugs for many others. Join us to hear why this hobby is about more than the collective events and publications; it's about relationships. We thank Mary Miller for her ongoing and generous support of our program on Patreon. Won't you be part of this ongoing success story?

 Episode 102: Summer at Baker Street | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"In summer it is a favourite resort" [VALL]  How often do you think of hot summer weather when you read the Sherlock Holmes stories? According to our calculations, it should be about 25%. But it doesn't seem that way, does it? It turns out that 16 of of the 60 stories took place in the summer months.  For those of you keeping track at home, they are (according to William S. Baring-Gould): "The Boscombe Valley Mystery" - June 1889"The Man with the Twisted Lip" - June 1889"The Engineer's Thumb" - Summer 1889, alternatively August or July"The Stockbroker's Clerk" - June"The Crooked Man" - Summer - August, 1888/9"The Greek Interpreter" - Summer"The Norwood Builder" - August 1894/5"The Dancing Men" - July 1898"Black Peter" - July 1895"The Six Napoleons" - July/August 1900"The Cardboard Box" - August late '80s"His Last Bow" - August 1914"The Mazarin Stone" - Summer 1903"The Three Garridebs" - June 1902"The Lion's Mane" - July 1907"The Retired Colourman" - Summer 1898 We also take you to the Norwegian Explorers' triennial conference The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes in Minneapolis, courtesy of our intrepid correspondent Steve Mason. We also reflect on your kind words from our 100th episode and enjoy Christopher Morley's "Sherlock Holmes Prayer" as our Gas-Lamp. Erik Deckers tries his skill at "Mental Exaltation" - will he be successful? And perhaps there's an Easter egg somewhere as well...
