We developed this show as a side project in addition to our main oeuvre, I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere. But as a weekly show, it requires additional resources.
Because, who else is going to look up all the facts about Dr. Watson's second wife? Or the state of tobacconists in Victorian London? Or how the telegraph pole calculation in 'Silver Blaze' was impossible to do on the fly? Or all of Holmes's monographs or Watson's unpublished stories? Or why milk was a poor choice of a snack for a snake?
You get the picture. There are so many things to think about with regard to the Sherlock Holmes stories. By becoming a Patron, you make it possible for us to dedicate the time to this little endeavor.
Who knows? Together, perhaps we'll unravel a mystery worthy of Sherlock Holmes himself.
Scott Monty and Burt Wolder are both members of the Baker Street Irregulars, the literary society dedicated to Sherlock Holmes. They have co-hosted the popular show I Hear of Everywhere since June 2007.
