“Interesting, though elementary” [HOUN] 

Rob Nunn found the Sherlockian world not long ago, and since then, our impression of him is one not too far from the name of our show: "We hear of Rob Nunn everywhere."

From winning the coveted Beacon Award from the Beacon Society in recognition of his work in the classroom involving Sherlock Holmes, to his involvement in a number of Sherlockian Societies in the Midwest and the crea...

“An almanac!” [VALL] 

When Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple"), first published Sherlock Holmes content in his publication, The Green Bag, he had no idea what he was in for. 

Let's just say that the response was enough to ensure that Sherlock Holmes got his own starring role in another publication, which became The Baker Street Almanac. Now in its fourth year, the BSA has become a go-to resource for tracking significant go...

"the prize at Olympia" [LAST] 

It's a well-known fact that Arthur Conan Doyle went up against the legendary cricket player W.G. Grace on the field in 1900. But his interest in sport went much further than that.

From cricket to golf, motorcycles to auto racing, downhill skiing and more, Conan Doyle equated physical fitness with fitness of the mind and spirit. He even went as far as championing the British Empire concept ...

"many excellent qualities" [MISS] 

One of the latest books in the BSI Manuscript Series from the BSI Press is The Staunton Tragedy, the manuscript for "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter."

  Edited by Wiggins emeritus Michael F. Whelan, the book brought together Sherlockians of all stripes for a wide variety of essays about and related to the story. The story itself was fairly thin and didn't present any...

"It is with a heavy heart" [FINA]  The worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle enthusiasts have lost a giant. Jon Lellenberg, invested in the Baker Street Irregulars as "Rodger Prescott of Evil Memory" in 1974, passed away on April 24, 2021 after a short illness.   Jon's contribution to our hobby was almost too immense for words. He was a confidant and representative of the Conan Doyle Estate for many ...

"In glancing over my notes of the seventy odd cases" [SPEC]?

One of the most well-known societies in the Sherlockian / Holmesian world is The Sherlock Holmes Society of London. Originally founded in 1934, the society lost steam for a few years and was permanently re-incorporated in 1951.

? Nicholas Utechin, BSI ("The Ancient British Barrow") joins I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere to discuss the society's remarkable...

"magnetism which drew good humour from all around him" [VALL]

It's not often that we talk bout the topic of humor on I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere. Regular listeners may strain to find humor in Burt and Scott's banter, but we're fans of humor here at IHOSE.

It's strange, then, that we find ourselves more than 200 episodes into this production without a nod toward Sherlockian parody. Episode 214 corrects that...

"a fair balance of military power." [SECO]  The BSI Professions Series marches on, this time in military time. The latest volume in the series is Corporals, Colonels, and Commissionaires: Military and the Sherlockian Canon, edited by Michael Quigley, BSI ("A Large, Brass-Bound Safe") and Marsha Pollak, BSI ("A Small But Select Library").   Together, they tell us the story behind the book: the curious case of...

"he does not care for general practice, which distracts him from his literary work" [MISS]  There must be something in the water. Or the air. Have you noticed an uptick of interest in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lately?   We spoke with Mark Jones of the Doings of Doyle podcast last season. Since then, a new society has met, another has been formed, and an academic journal has begun its path.   To help us understand the impetus...

"you must acknowledge, my dear Holmes" [HOUN] 

When you hear about Richard Ryan's writing projects, you might make an exclamation much like Watson did in the presence of Sherlock Holmes. The self-described "pantser" already had five books to his name on MX Publishing (The Vatican Cameos, The Stone of Destiny, The Druid of Death, The Merchant of Menace, Through a Glass Starkly) and is at work on his sixth, Three ...

"Unique, perfectly unique" [BRUC] 

When Vincent Starrett set out to write his cornerstone pastiche in 1920, it wasn't intended for an audience of Sherlock Holmes fans. For one, he didn't know of any others who were as fixated on Holmes as he was.

Fortunately, Richard Sveum, BSI ("Dr. Hill Barton") is well connected in the Sherlockian world and was able to tap the talents of other Starrett experts and enthusi...

"a group of people who seemed to be intensely amused" [BLAN]  

Once upon a time, a man invited a group of his friends to join him for lunch and conversation about his favorite literary figure. Eighty-seven years later, the Baker Street Irregulars continues, but what about that early set of people?

Thanks to the incredible research skills of Linda and Terry Hunt, we know more about these 60+ people than we have in quite...

 "You are a collector, this set has come your way" [ILLU] 

In our previous episode, we talked about some of the items in our collection, so we thought this time, we'd give you a glimpse into the collection of another Sherlockian as we launch Season 15 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.

Charles Prepolec, BSI ("The Man with the Twisted Lip") is a Sherlockian whose collecting bug has run the gamut before settling on...

 "Maybe you collect yourself, sir" [EMPT] 

It's the end of 2020, and we thought it would be fun to interview each other about some of the favorite items in our collection. Even better: we thought we'd do it on live video.

In addition to pulling out some items that may make your raise your eyebrows (either at the value of the items or our mental state upon purchasing them), we talked about the nature of collecting, ...

"I picked up a magazine from the table" [STUD] 

It's not common thinking that a print publication would be needed in 2020, but Sherlock Holmes Magazine seems to have come along at just the right time.

Founder/editor Adrian Braddy joins us to talk about the inspiration for this well-produced and successful magazine that he launched earlier this year. It was a mixture of his background and experience, and his nearly life-...

  "What sort of a game is that—eh?" [DYIN]

While it's customary for us to utter "the game's afoot!" at the end of each episode, in this case it's more appropriate to say it as we commence.

We're joined by Dave Neale, researcher in play and psychology, writer and game designer. Dave is responsible for the the game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Baker Street Irregulars.

 "striking illustration of those powers for which my friend was famous" [SOLI] 

The name Frederic Dorr Steele is legendary among Sherlockians. Even for those who don't know his name, his iconic rendering of Sherlock Holmes (as partly inspired by William Gillette) has left us with distinctive imagery.

Sadly, Steele was buried in an unmarked grave in his family plot at the Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, NY. But the Fre...

"that strange wireless by which such people collect the news" [LION] 

Moving from the definitive Sherlock Holmes on radio in our last episode to the definitive Sherlock Holmes of television, we're joined by Gus and Luke Holwerda, the fraternal team responsible for The Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes Podcast.

This duo is as enthusiastic about the Granada series as we are (perhaps more!) and they bring their professional bac...

Anyone who is interested in the intersection of Sherlock Holmes and audio (that's why you're here, isn't it?) is familiar with the name Clive Merrison.

The definitive Sherlock Holmes of the audio realm, Clive Merrison holds the distinction of being the only actor to play Sherlock Holmes in dramatized form in every one of the 60 stories from the Canon, as well as in 15 additional ...

"The stage lost a fine actor" [SCAN] 

David Stuart Davies, BSI ("Ralph Musgrave") is the world's leading authority on Jeremy Brett. David has written extensively about Brett, including in his landmark 1996 biography Bending the Willow: Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, published the year after Brett's death, and having spent many hours interviewing him.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
