Although Burt and I are both members of the Baker Street Irregulars and we will speak about the history and goings-on of the BSI, this is not the official podcast of the BSI. Should that august body ever decide to emerge from 1895 and start its own podcast, we'll be sure to let you know.
In this episode, we explore the following topics:
- Why a podcast?
- Ways to listen to the show
- The breadth of interest in Sherlock Holmes
- Listener comments - welcome, encouraged, by phone, email or the comment feature below
- Show frequency and length
- My First Meeting with Sherlock Holmes - Burt and Scott each share their own first experience with the great detective
- The Editor's Gas Lamp - from the Baker Street Journal, Vol. 1, No. 2 (1946), "What Is It That We Love In Sherlock Holmes?"

Burt and Scott:
Just wanted to congratulate you on the launch of your new podcast. It's a perfect example of what makes a great podcast: two guys talking about a subject they're passionate about to a clearly defined target audience.
Wishing you both a prosperous run with the show.
Burt and Scott,
Just spent a delightful half hour with issue 1 of your podcast. What a joy to hear two good friends chatting about a favorite subject. Many thanks for the effort -- I look forward to more.
C'est magnifique, mes amis !
Great to hear both of you about your first experience... with Holmes!
As when De Gaulle was speaking on radio from London, pom pom pom pom, all the French Sherlockians will put ears on their imac or PC each week, listening your "voices of favour", because you are doing such a favour for all Sherlockians around the World.
Merci et poursuivez dans cette "voix" !
Thierry Saint-Joanis, président de la Société Sherlock Holmes de France, BSI, etc.
i will download it on my ipod and hear it while in the tube.
Sherlockian Who's Who
Very nice idea and great job ! Thanks a lot for this podcast !
Your podcast is off to a great start! I enjoyed the "intro" and "outro" sequences a great deal -- high production values! -- and your voices are well-suited for audio. An excellent job reading the Gaslight Journal entry.
How about a show on various old time radio incarnations of the Master? Maybe some fair use of audio clips to "illustrate"?
Looking forward to many more episodes to come.
Bibliomike - thank you for the comment. We'll try to keep up the quality of the "innards" of the episodes.
Your radio suggestion is interesting; aside from the clips, there are one or two old time radio experts we know who might be great panelists.
Thank you for listening.
Burt and Scott,
Great fun catching up with both podcasts this morning. I couldn't be more pleased to find Sherlockians finally making good use of online communication tools, particularly voice media. It has been a long time coming. Great work guys, I look forward to more fascinating broadcasts and wish you continued success!
Thanks, Charles. We appreciate the encouraging words -- and thanks for listening!
