All About Agatha is a podcast all about, well, Agatha. Agatha Christie, of course. The Queen of Crime, a real-life Dame of the British Empire and author of sixty-six mystery novels that spanned the Twentieth Century, defining a genre. Every month or so we revisit one of these novels in the order they were first published in the UK. Discussions range from plotting and interpretation to the impact of the beloved adaptations to an attempt at ranking them all. We take a breather in between novels to discuss one of her many (100-plus) short stories, and to interview like-minded mystery obsessives (scholars, authors, etc.). Call it a Christie-fest, as we revisit Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy and Tuppence, and oh so much more.... Join us.

    A Very Special Episode: Interview with Alexandra Andrews, Author of Who Is Maud Dixon?

    A Very Special Episode: Interview with Alexandra Andrews, Author of Who Is Maud Dixon?

    What a great time we had gabbing with this debut author about her recently published (and much buzzed-about) novel... almost as great a time as we had reading it!

    A Hercule Poirot Amuse-Bouche: The Plymouth Express by Agatha Christie

    A Hercule Poirot Amuse-Bouche: The Plymouth Express by Agatha Christie

    This short story is a precursor to The Mystery of the Blue Train, but don't let that put you off! We found much to enjoy--both in the source material and the Suchet adaptation.

    And Then There Were 13: The Clocks by Agatha Christie

    And Then There Were 13: The Clocks by Agatha Christie

    Well... they can't all be winners, can they? This (barely-there) Poirot novel is not one of our favorites, we're sorry to say. But as usual, we relish the opportunity to explore and explain why. Because even a lesser Christie is a source of wonder and joy.

    A Hercule Poirot Amuse-Bouche: The King of Clubs by Agatha Christie

    A Hercule Poirot Amuse-Bouche: The King of Clubs by Agatha Christie

    We've got Poirot. We've got Hastings. We've got a prince. A lady of mysterious origins. A frozen-in-time bridge tableau! If you need more, you're probably not listening to the right podcast....

    A Very Special Episode: Interview with Sarah Pearse, Author of The Sanatorium

    A Very Special Episode: Interview with Sarah Pearse, Author of The Sanatorium

    We were fortunate enough to sit down with Sarah Pearse, the author of one of this season's hottest (or is that iciest?) thrillers, The Sanatorium. There are lots of connections to be made between her book and Christie, and naturally, we made them all. Enjoy!

    This episode is brought to you by Best Fiends.

    And Then There Were 14: The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side by Agatha Christie

    And Then There Were 14: The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side by Agatha Christie

    Someone might need to stage an intervention, because the longer we talk about Christie, the more we apparently have to say! We hope you enjoy our super-sized discussion of this intriguing late Christie novel (perhaps the *first* late Christie novel?), during which we wax poetic about all sorts of topics--from the rigors of film acting to the ravages of time. Oh, and Dark Marple, of course.

Perfect & addictive

I love taking Kemper and Catherine on walks with me every morning. I found them after their guest shot on Shedunnit and I’ve been gobbling up episodes ever since. Soon—too soon—I’ll be all caught up.
