"a seven-per-cent solution. Would you care to try it?" [SIGN] 

With the continued interest shown in "Mental Exaltation," the quiz segment on I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, along with the masterful writing abilities of our quizmaster Nick Martorelli, we're continuing the tradition. If you'd like a flavor of how this works, you can listen to Episode 82, in which a contestant played along (annotated below at 55:51).

If you've listened to NPR shows like Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and Weekend Edition Sunday, you'll know that there are opportunities for listeners to participate in quizzes. In the former, a guest typically plays on behalf of a listener; on the latter, the listener plays live on the air.

Here's how "Mental Exaltation" works:
  • Each month, we'll post a qualifying question to determine a listener who'll play / be played for on the program. Winner will be chosen at random from all correct entries.
  • If you'd like to enter, you must subscribe to I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere by email.
  • We'll either have a guest play on your behalf or we'll patch you into the show to have you play over the phone or Skype.
  • If your player or you succeeds in passing the test, you'll win a random item from our I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere Grab-Bag of Goodies (that's the IHOSE GBG).

In our very next episode (Episode 85), our guest will be Nicholas Meyer, the author and screenwriter of The Seven Per-Cent Solution, and he'll be playing on behalf of one very lucky listener.
