 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. Burt and Scott mention some Sherlockian resolutions for 2017; what are yours? And do you have suggestions for guests for 2017?

 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. We have two sponsors, plus a bonus Sherlock Holmes Brand ad, for your listening pleasure. Please consider becoming a regular supporter of ours on Patreon.

 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. From the publications they produce to the meetings they hold, we'll give you a grounding of the language, names and even traditions at some of these groups. We'll cap it off with a tribute to none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who got this whole party started. We hope you enjoy it. Please consider becoming a regular supporter of us on Patreon.

 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.

 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...

 Episode 101: Rebecca Romney | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"the professional enthusiasm which carried my companion" [SIGN]  When your interview guest says that she was hooked on Sherlock Holmes based on the line "I confess that I covet your skull," [HOUN] you know it's going to be a fun and unusual discussion. Even more fun is the fact that Rebecca Romney is an extraordinarily well read and well informed Sherlockian, partially owing to the fact that she is also a rare book dealer. Professionally, she works with Honey and Wax Booksellers, but you may recall her from one of her appearances on Pawn Stars, where she was the rare books expert. Rebecca shares her journey, which goes from a youth filled with books to a degree in linguistics and classics, teaching English in Japan and launching Bauman Rare Books' Las Vegas gallery in 2007. Along the way, we discover other Sherlockians that Rebecca has met, the finer points of bookselling (and training to become one), and the magic of having conversations about books with people. The conversation ranges from Ronald A. Knox to Burgess Meredith, Christopher Morley to Richard Altick. Will it include the legendary Chumley? You'll have to listen in to find out. Rebecca and her husband J.P. Romney host the podcast Biblioclast and they have just completed a book called Printer's Error: Irreverent Stories from Book History, which will be published by Harper Collins in early 2017. And perhaps there's an Easter egg somewhere as well... We thank Mary Miller for her ongoing and generous support of our program on Patreon. And we thank the many listeners to turned out to support us for our 100th show with one-time PayPal contributions.

 Episode 100: A Sherlockian Centennial | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"I am one of a hundred" [ILLU]  Well, we managed to do it. And it only took us nine years, an 18-month hiatus, one lost episode and thousands of fans. That's right, it's our 100th episode. We asked you what you wanted to hear for the centenary of the first podcast for Sherlock Holmes devotees, and time and again, we heard from you, telling us to do a retrospective - a look back at our favorite moments from what we've accomplished. We also asked you what your favorite moments are and what you wanted to know from us. Well, we managed to deliver on both. Our 100th episode gave us a chance to reflect on exactly what turning 100 means, and to dive back into our murky and fuzzy origins. We try to answer some of your queries and we celebrate those who joined us previously before launching into our top memories of the show, as represented in audio clips. Our Gas-Lamp features two readings, including a new one created just for this episode. Finally, we wrap up with a couple of important announcements that you won't want to miss. And perhaps there's an Easter egg somewhere as well... We thank Mary Miller for her ongoing and generous support of our program on Patreon. Perhaps you'd like to become a patron in honor of our 100th show. If ongoing support scares you, one-time PayPal contributions are welcome too. Additional ThanksWe have so many of you to thank — from those of you who wrote in with feedback, to those who provided reviews, created something for us, provided financial support, and of course, those who appeared on the show. It's all been absolutely overwhelming and this wouldn't be possible without you. So, in no particular order, thanks to: Steve Doyle, Mark Gagen, Steve Rothman, Mary Miller, John Rabe, James O'Leary, Kate Donley, Bob Katz, Andy Solberg, Jon Lellenberg, Dan Stashower, Mike Whelan, Peter Blau, Les Klinger, Bert Coules, Mike Berdan, Michael Dirda, Bob Thomalen, The Baker Street Babes, Otto Penzler, Maria Konnikova, Nicholas Meyer, Evelyn Herzog, Susan Rice, David Harnois, Gerry Turnbull, Steve Mason, Rob Nunn, Claire Strum, Peter Calamai, Nicholas Pidgeon, Nick Utechin, Ray Betzner, David Stuart Davies, David Ian Davies, Chris Redmond, Jamie Mahoney, Leah Guinn, Jerry Margolin, David Morrill, Sally Sugarman, Graham Moore, Henry Zecher, Tom Francis, Don Hobbs, Tom Richmond, Tim Johnson, Ken Ludwig, Glen Miranker, Zach Dundas, Bonnie MacBird, Bill Barnes, Roseane McNamara, Doug Elliott, Kerry Murphy, Christopher Sequeira, Erin O'Neill, and Robert Veld. And extra special thanks to our spouses  Kathi and Mindi, who tolerate this silliness and allow us to interrupt the flow of home life more than we thought they would. Or certainly more than they'd prefer.

 Episode 99: Chris Redmond | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"Billy had appeared in answer to a ring." [MAZA]  It's a rare thing to find a Sherlockian legend these days, but Chris Redmond, BSI ("Billy"), ASH, MBt certainly qualifies as one. From his investiture in the Baker Street Irregulars at the tender age of 16 to his long association with the Bootmakers of Toronto, he is a respected speaker at all kinds of Sherlockian events. And online, he's probably best known for his longstanding and comprehensive reference site Sherlockian.net. Chris's writing output is impressive, steady and ranges from the scholarly to the humorous. In Bed with Sherlock Holmes, Welcome to America, Mr. Sherlock Holmes and A Sherlock Holmes Handbook are all well known and in depth volumes about Arthur Conan Doyle's great detective. But in this interview, we move beyond the written page and get into Chris's inspirations and aspirations (still!). You'll learn what Chris's initial career choice was before moving along to communications and how that initial proclivity stayed with him. You'll hear about some of Chris's great speeches, from the man who loved women to the hilarious take on how to give a Sherlockian presentation. As if there isn't enough to content with in simply concepting and assembling one, Chris shares the most difficult part of compiling a comprehensive biography of some 800 individuals. And finally, we have Chris's next book to look forward to in which he challenges each of 60 authors to determine why every Sherlock Holmes story is the best. As usual, we couldn't do this without the significant support of Mary Miller for her extraordinary Patreon support! If you contribute at Mary's level, you get mentioned on the show. But we welcome any amount of support that you can muster.

 Episode 98: Europe and Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"Oh, he has a European fame, has he?" [REDC] While Sherlock Holmes is firmly rooted in London, the connections to Europe in the Sherlock Holmes stories are many. But have you ever stopped to ponder, as a whole, how mentions of the Continent and various European countries stack up? You might be surprised. Travel with us as Burt and Scott take a deeper look into some of the European influences that Conan Doyle infused into the various stories. From Moriarty's European reputation to the "European situation" mentioned in "The Second Stain." What was so delicate at the time and who was Lord Bellinger? We note how refugees were treated in Europe in the time of The Valley of Fear. We even do an accounting of Holmes's fine work for many of the royal houses of Europe. In addition, we treat you to a rundown of some Sherlock Holmes news, we welcome Steve Mason as our quiz contestant and have a special themed Gas-Lamp from The Sherlock Holmes Journal to fall in line with our European topic. All this and more! As usual, we couldn't do this without the significant support of Mary Miller for her extraordinary Patreon support!

 Episode 96: A Study in Spring | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"See how beautifully the spring works" [STUD] Spring is here! Suh-per-ing is here! Life is skittles and life is beer... You may not have realized this, but more than a quarter of the Sherlock Holmes stories occurred in the spring. We took the opportunity to call out a few of them an delve into why the season worked as both a setting for the stories and as tool to juxtapose Holmes and Watson. Of course, we don't stop there, as we chat about what our 100th episode may contain (just four episodes away!), a trending book topic on Twitter, the masterful scholarship that William S. Baring-Gould leveraged to determine his chronology, and welcome special guests Tom Lehrer and Orson Welles. The Sherlockian news is here to get you caught up, our Gas-Lamp is from the current issue of the Baker Street Journal (Vol. 66, No. 1), Rob Nunn joins us as a victim contestant on Mental Exaltation, and we give you a sneak peek into what IHOSE Episode 97 will contain.
