"revenge upon his old sweetheart" [NORW]

We're gearing up to record Episode 90 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, which will air on February 15. As it will be the day after Valentine's Day, we'll still have love on our mind, so our topic will be romance in the Canon — true love, near misses, the fair sex, etc.

To that end, the our "Mental Exaltation" quiz (written by resident IHOSE quizmaster Nick Martorelli) on Episode 90 will be tied to love and romance. And our qualifying quiz below is an extension of that.

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 you or your player succeed 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).

Good luck!
