The Baker Street Babes are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans who talk about everything from canon to Cumberbatch, Charles Augustus Milverton to Jude Law, and dancing men to Jeremy Brett.
We love Sherlock Holmes and we love having well informed, but also quite fun discussions about it. We’re all young and we’re all females, but we’re all die hard Sherlockians/Holmesian.
It’s a demographic within the Sherlock Holmes fandom that is new and growing and doesn’t yet have a voice. We hope to become that voice and we want to prove that we’re not just going to coo over Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch, as lovely as they are, but that we know the canon and want to have discussions about it as well.
10 Years of Sherlock Memories
Yes, it's been a decade since the airing of BBC Sherlock's "A Study in Pink." And while time has absolutely no meaning in the age of COVID, it has been an extraordinary ten years of memories thanks to the little British show that surprised the world. So we take some time to talk about our memories of the Sherlock fandom and the crazy trajectory of the show, some of your memories, and revisiting the first 221B Con and SherlockeDCC at San Diego Comic Con.
Episode 87: Holmes at Home
The world is a difficult place right now. A place where it's OK to not be OK. However, we do hope you're OK and that maybe some silly talk about "The Solitary Cyclist" and The Diogenes Club as places of social distancing may brighten your spirits. In this episode Maria and Ashley do just that while Curly, Lyndsay, Taylor, Sarah, and Amy check in with all of you, tell you a bit about how we're doing, and that we love you. Sure, it's a bit sappy, a bit silly, and rather giggly... but that's what we do isn't it? We're your friends who chat about Sherlock Holmes with you. And sometimes syphilis. And we've missed you.

The Left Coast Sherlockian Symposium
Curly chats with Elinor Gray about her new conference: The Left Coast Sherlockian Symposium.
Live & Local 7: Michael Sims
Our Live & Local series are our sit down with a fascinating Sherlockian one-on-one in person chats. This go round Lyndsay sits with Edgar Award nominated Michael Sims about his work, Arthur and Sherlock, as well as some other fascinating Sherlockian tidbits and anecdotes.
Episode 85: Cake Boss & Our Charity Ball
We were on Cake Boss! Yes, they gave us an amazing Sherlock Holmes cake for our annual charity ball for wounded veterans during BSI Weekend. And it was amazing. Lyndsay, Tiffany, and Maria sit down and talk about the process, the cake, the ball, and every delicious morsel in between.
Episode 84: The Many Faces of Irene Adler
BSB Amy and our good friend Chris Zordan discuss everything Irene Adler with a wonderful audience at 221B Con. Who was Irene Adler? Why is she so important to fans even though she only appears in one story? Taking on this larger than life adventuress that bested Sherlock Holmes is something many adaptations (all adaptations?) get kinda wrong. Why is that?
The audio is kinda hard to listen to sometimes. Your show and reviewing is great and funny. I really love your theme song.
Baker Street Babes is a great podcast
I enjoy every episode of The Baker Street Babes. It includes a variety of Holmes-related topics, including history, forensics, and literature. Episodes often focus on, but are not limited to, depictions of women in Holmes literature and media portrayals, women's history, and female Holmes scholars. Always enjoyable.
Knowledgeable and fun!
I truly enjoy these podcasts because the Babes know their Conan Doyle inside out and they are very, very fun
