 Episode 182: The Polyphonic Motets of Lassus | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“he returned refreshed to his monograph upon the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus” [BRUC]  Perhaps you recall Watson mentioning in the midst of "The Bruce-Partington Plans" that Sherlock Holmes took his mind off of things while waiting for crucial information by losing himself "in a monograph which he had undertaken upon the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus." Perhaps you've wondered who Lassus was. That would be Orlande de Lassus (or Orlando di Lasso), a Renaissance composer, who along with Palestrina, was one of the most influential musicians of the late 16th century. But what did a "polyphonic motet" sound like? And what were these motets composed for? And why should Sherlock Holmes have an interest in them? We have the answer to all of these questions and more from Ann Margaret Lewis, herself a Sherlockian and a soprano who performs liturgical music. Ann joins us to get us hooked on phonics, to explain the relevance of this beautiful music, and to identify a clip from the Jeremy Brett Granada series. Also, tune in for the latest Canonical Couplet. We have another opportunity for you to win a prize in this episode. Information on sponsors, links, and notes available below.

 Episode 186: Upon the Turf | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“your wide experience of turf matters” [SILV]  The sport of kings horse racing is part of the Sherlock Holmes lore. It's also part of a tradition in Sherlockian events going back some 70 years. The BSI Press has issued a new book, Upon the Turf, that is a comprehensive look at horse racing in the Canon, Victorian England, and the Baker Street Irregulars, as well as associated topics such as gambling, drugs (quite an associated set of vices!), the law, art, and history. Candace J. Lewis, BSI ("A Little Art Jargon") and Ira Brad Matetsky ("The Final Problem"), together with Roger Donway, edited this volume related to horses and horse racing. Candy and Ira join us to talk about the inspiration behind the volume and our own Burt Wolder describes his contribution to the scholarship. The Canonical Couplet is back, and the prize for this episode is a copy of the BSI Press booklet Commissionaire: Julian Wolff and his Baker Street Irregulars by Sonia Fetherston. This booklet was distributed to attendees of the Lilly Conference in November 2019 and is an advance publicity piece for Sonia's forthcoming biography of Julian. It is not available anywhere else on the market. Information on sponsors, links, and notes available below. Please do consider becoming a Patron of the Arts.

 Episode 185: William S. Baring-Gould | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“pursuing some laborious researches” [3STU]  The name William S. Baring-Gould is one of a hallowed few in the pantheon of Sherlockian scholars. He is one of the handful of chronologists who has attempted to put the stories in a particular order, using a number of research techniques. He also wrote the first unofficial "biography" of Sherlock Holmes with his Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street: A Life of the World's First Consulting Detective. And his name is synonymous with his magnum opus from 1967, The Annotated Sherlock Holmes. The 2019 Baker Street Journal Christmas Annual looks at all of these things and more, making this legend come to life as a fully-formed and high achieving individual. Julie McKuras, Tim Johnson, Richard Sveum, and Gary Thaden joined forces to bring us this well-deserved biography of this hero of so many Sherlockians. We spoke to Julie and Tim to hear what went into writing this book and special discoveries they made about Baring-Gould along the way. While you can't buy a copy of the Christmas Annual (it comes bundled with every annual BSJ subscription), we are giving you a chance to get a copy: the prize we're giving away for this episode's Canonical Couplet is a copy of the Baring-Gould Christmas Annual.

 Episode 184: Tying One On with Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“a certain quiet primness of dress” [MUSG] "Doyle" from Beau Ties Ltd. For the last 26 years, Beau Ties Ltd. has been a Vermont-based U.S. manufacturer of bow ties. And sometimes we see glimpses of Sherlock Holmes coming through. Because we're bow tie fanciers and astute observers of things, we decided to chat with an executive from Beau Ties Ltd. to understand their thinking. So we sat down with Cy Tall, President of Beau Ties Ltd. From her choice of college major to her consulting career, Cy's decisions eventually led her to this fascinating industry. She tells us about how the team gets its inspiration for tie names, how clubs can work with Beau Ties to get their own custom ties, how the conversion service (convert your neck tie to a bow tie) came about, how the company has accommodated more than just men with its products, and more. We also have a special Beau Ties Ltd. discount for IHOSE listeners: just use the code HOLMES15 at checkout from January 15-30, 2020 and you'll enjoy 15 percent off your order.

 Episode 181: The Daily Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“well acquainted with his daily routine” [RESI]  When we named our show I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, it was an acknowledgment that we can find Sherlock Holmes-inspired activity virtually any place we look. But our guests on this episode show us that they could see it being named I Hear of Sherlock Every Day. Levi Stahl and Stacey Shintani are the authors of The Daily Sherlock Holmes: A Year of Quote from the Case-Book of the World's Greatest Detective, published by the University of Chicago Press. In actuality, the quotes are from across the entirety of the publicly-available Sherlock Holmes stories, with the exception of the handful of stories from The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes not yet out of copyright. With 378 quotes (that's one for each day of the year, plus an introductory quote for each month), how does one chose the appropriate quotes for an entire daily devotional? What patterns did Levi and Stacey discover? What Easter eggs await? Our conversation traces their fascinating journey from shared reading experiences to individual research, reveals a delightful process and an enticing spreadsheet resulting in a book that can be enjoyed by the newest Sherlock Holmes fan to the most erudite scholar. See what's in store for the latest Canonical Couplet. We have another opportunity for you to win a prize in this episode. Information on sponsors, links, and notes available below.

 Episode 179: Catching Up with Scott and Burt | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“Your conversation is most entertaining” [SPEC]  Usually things run like clockwork around these parts. But with both Burt and Scott on the road for work, and trying to coordinate daytime, evening, and even weekend schedules with various guests, sometimes it doesn't work out. So, we're returning to our roots and just having a chat with each other. It's a wide-ranging conversation that takes us from the 92nd Street Y with Joel Grey and Nicholas Meyer (Joel Grey played a small part in The Seven Per-Cent Solution, of course), to the Sons of the Copper Beeches in Philadelphia and their new members. In both instances, we discuss the importance of tradition. We remember a member of the BSI who recently passed away and his considerable contribution to Sherlockian scholarship. Speaking of the BSI, we mention the upcoming BSI Weekend. It hasn't been officially announced yet, but you can follow at a couple of sites. We also make an announcement of a special and exclusive episode, only for our Patreon supporters. If you become a supporter before the end of 2019, you can have access to this special outtakes episode that we're planning. Hear what goes on behind the scenes at IHOSE!

 Episode 178: The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“this peculiar incident” [SIGN]  He was almost single-handedly responsible for the revival of interest of Sherlock Holmes in the 1970s with The Seven Percent Solution. Now, 45 years after his first novel about Sherlock Holmes, Nicholas Meyer, BSI ("A Fine Morocco Case") returns with The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols. The case takes us to January of 1905, when Holmes and Watson are summoned by Mycroft to undertake a clandestine investigation. A British Secret Service agent was found floating in the Thames with a manuscript smuggled into England that cost her life. The pages are supposedly the minutes of the meeting of a secret group intent on taking over the world: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Holmes and Watson are sent to determine whether it's a hoax, what the perpetrators are trying to accomplish, and why they want to keep their work out of the hands of the Secret Service. What's different this time around, some 19 years after his previous Holmes novel? Where did he get his inspiration? We talk to Nick about these things, plus his view of storytelling. To him, it has to be in service of something larger than a gimmick, and paraphrasing Victor Hugo, he said, "There's nothing so irresistible as an idea whose time has come."

 Episode 177: Being Sherlock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“being out of the ordinary” [LADY]  Since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first began the tradition in 1927, Sherlockians worldwide have debated which are the "best" Sherlock Holmes stories. There have been polls, surveys and lists. Articles, books, and debates. The core list is usually consistent, with a few variables along the way. Ashley Polasek—a familiar name to listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere—took up the challenges as only she could: considering the stories and their reinterpretation over the years. The character of Sherlock Holmes has evolved over the years in multiple media, and as someone with a doctorate in adaptation studies, Ashley was in the perfect position to write Being Sherlock: A Sherlockian's Stroll Through the Best Sherlock Holmes Stories (Lyons Press). She joins us to share the thinking that led to her curated list of ten short stories and one novel from the Canon. And she has a suggestion for a future potential I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere gift.

 Episode 176: The Man Who Would Be Sherlock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“it would be a great pleasure” [SIGN]  Acclaimed biographer Christopher Sandford joins us to discuss his book The Man Who Would Be Sherlock: The Real-Life Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle. But this isn't a biography. As Sandford explained, there was a perpetual itch that Conan Doyle had to scratch, and his writing wasn't enough to satisfy it. How did his lifelong crusade pan out? Why did he embrace spiritualism so fervently when he also valued the scientific method? How did he feel about the dissolution of his friendship with Harry Houdini? We discover the answers to these questions and more in our conversation with Chris, as well as the gothic setting of his own childhood, which was eerily similar to Conan Doyle's—and, how a cricket match led to him writing Mick Jagger's biography.

 Episode 175: Building an Archive | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“furnished lodgings close to a library” [3STU]  When you have a world-class collection, it makes sense for a world-class institution to house it. And not just any such institution (as there are many), but one that can meet the needs of the depositor. In this case, we're talking about the BSI Archives and the Lilly Library—two venerable institutions. From November 8-10, 2019, the BSI is hosting at conference at the University of Indiana, where the Lilly Library resides. Titled "Building an Archive: A Celebration of the Arrival of the BSI Archive at the Lilly Library," it will feature scholars, collectors, and enthusiasts alike and will encompass two and a half days dedicated to the collection. The centerpiece of the event will be a special exhibition, "The History of the BSI Through 221 Objects," at the Lilly Library. How did the curators and trustees choose these items? What are they? and what will happen during the symposium? Guest Glen Miranker, BSI ("The Origin of Tree Worship") and Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple") join us to give us a behind-the-scenes peek at this exciting event. Be sure to register today!

 Episode 174: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“he was not the man that they had known” [CREE]  Christopher Sequeira is a familiar name among those who enjoy speculative fiction. That's the intersection of horror, fantasy, science fiction, and super hero. And that's where his connection with Sherlock Holmes resides as well. Where did Chris first get inspired in this direction? In the latest book he has edited, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not, Chris assembled authors to write short stories that share this premise: what if Sherlock Holmes teamed up with doctors other than John H. Watson? If there are parallel universes out there, then there's an infinite number of possibilities. It's a unique angle, and Chris's own story sets it up with great gusto.  Join us for this discussion of what's possible and hear about Chris's approach to his craft, as well as some fascinating stories about Harlan Ellison and Fu Manchu.
