"his glib Irish tongue" [VALL]
We're preparing to record Episode 92 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, which will air on March 15. This will be our main show for March, so we'll be focused on celebrating St. Patrick's Day and all things Irish.
So our Mental Exaltation quiz (written by resident IHOSE quizmaster Nick Martorelli) on Episode 92 will be tied to Ireland, all things Irish in the Canon and the wearin' o' the green. As you can imagine, 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).
