    The Crimes of Sherlock Holmes

    The Crimes of Sherlock Holmes

    "It is fortunate for this community that I am not a criminal."[BRUC]
    Sherlock Holmes certainly ran with a rough crowd. Burglars, murderers, blackmailers, thieves, spies, kidnappers, and even politicians. Given his store of criminal knowledge, what stopped him from becoming a criminal himself?

    Wait just a moment; while his cause was justice, his practice wasn't always on the right side of the law. Thanks to a suggestion from Erik Deckers, we're examining the criminality of Sherlock Holmes. It's just a Trifle.

Good Fun!

Entertaining conversation for anyone who enjoys the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Enjoying

I started listen to Trifles and I Hear of Sherlock a little while ago and it’s really upped my passion for Holmes and Watson. I’ve always been a fan but now I’ve discovered much more. I am watching the Granada series and rereading the stories that I haven’t read in decades.
I do admit I often prefer the shorter format of Trifles and see me buying more books due to these podcasts I recently purchased Sherlockian musings.

Cheeky Fun

Two cheeky fools discussing the minutiae of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Sometimes goofy, it’s still like comfort food for the mind. The funnest podcast on my list of favs. I listen when I shower, when I’m walking, anytime I need something fun to lift my spirits. My favorite episodes are ‘Fog’, ‘Boxing’, and ‘Minus Watson Part 2’. Listen if a fan, if not a fan, listen anyway.
