When Burt Wolder and I started the podcast I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere - the first Sherlockian podcast - nearly a year ago, we were immediately faced with one daunting problem: how to explain to people what a podcast is. We tried to do so - but we made a mistake by using the medium itself to explain what it is.

Well, eighteen episodes and nearly a year later, I think I have the solution. The very creative team over at CommonCraft are in the business of providing explanatory videos. They've done a particularly remarkable job with their "plain English" series, which you may have seen if you clicked on the "RSS in Plain English" link over in the sidebar.

Their newest video is Podcasting in Plain English, which you can watch right here on the blog or by clicking on the link. Either way, this should help you to understand what we're doing over at I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere and to hopefully subscribe to our free audio show.

Delighted to see you back, Scott! Thanks for putting up those little "films" that help explain the techie world to those of us who aren't always quite techie enough. -- Esmerelda

Even without understanding what podcasts are we know that "I Hear of Sherlock" is a wonderful addition to our enjoyment of the Canon and the Sherlockian world. Your efforts in bringing 1895 into the 21st Century are very much appreciated.
