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.

    Episode 82: Baker Street in LA

    It's not every day you find an entire re-creation of 221B Baker Street... it's even rarer when that re-creation is in Los Angeles. Chuck Kovacic is a longtime Sherlockian and utterly devoted to having the most authentic Sherlock Holmes sitting room in the world. The amount of detail and research that has been poured into the room where so many of the stories truly took place is nothing short of astounding.

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.

Great Podcast

The audio is kinda hard to listen to sometimes. Your show and reviewing is great and funny. I really love your theme song.
