    Episode 1: Once Upon a Time in Denmark Street

    We're back this week for a brand new season of The Strike and Ellacott Files, starting our reread of The Cuckoo's Calling!

    In this episode, we'll be covering prologue and chapters 1-3 of part 1. We meet our heroes for the first time, get introduced to the case that frames the novel, and spend most of the episode laughing about the sheer dramatic irony of it all.

    Our next episode will cover chapters 4-7 from part 1.

A Must for Strike & Ellacott Fans

I love listening to this podcast while we wait for Book 6, especially because the hosts dive into the story & characters more deeply than I have, and it’s fun to hear other fans’ perspectives. I hope they dedicate episodes to the TV series too.

Great commentary!

Love this podcast. It’s so nice to have a podcast of strike fans and I enjoy their format. My only qualm is there is no rhyme or reason to their posting schedule. I wish they had a regular upload date. I like to plan my work day with my podcasts. They posted regularly on thursdays for a bit but have since been a bit all over the place. Editing my May 2021 review - they have fixed their upload schedule, great! Unfortunately they added a new host I do not care for.

Kinda high school

The hosts provide some very interesting perspectives; for example, the discussion of the Odyssey was great. Unfortunately, the good stuff is overwhelmed by squeals about the romance. The Strike/Robin relationship fascinating, but the podcast’s preoccupation is boring.
