 ""I never pass anything, however trifling."" [3GAB] 

Are you listening to Trifles yet? It's our weekly discussion show that's available on any podcasting service and at sherlockholmespodcast.com. There you can sign up for email updates and/or subscribe via your audio device for weekly updates every Wednesday, when we take about 20 minutes to talk about one or two issues that we've noticed within the Sherlock Holmes stories. 

It's an approach that we hope brings more people into our fold who are new to Sherlock Holmes and are fascinated with the details within the story, or who may have some questions about what they read.

Find Trifles wherever you listen to podcasts:

Here's what you missed in our August shows.

August Update

If you've listened to more than one episode of Trifles, just a word of caution: don't skip the intro or the final few seconds of each show. We vary the introductions and we have a different closing quote from the Granada production (or another surprise production) on every episode. Collect them all!

The month started out with some good ink literally! We talked about Tattoos: who had them, what the history was, and how Sherlock Holmes used tattoo marks as part of his detective work.

In episode 189, we moved on to My Old Friend Charlie Peace. Was he really a friend of Sherlock Holmes? What made old Charlie so special that Sherlock Holmes mentioned him, and what was this rumor of him being a violin virtuoso? 

We've got a monthly feature in Season 4 called "Mr. Sherlock Holmes the Theorist," in which we take a piece of Sherlockian scholarship and examine it with you. This month, it's the second in a series called "The Women of the Canon" from The Sherlock Holmes Journal. This is The Working Girls.

We round out August with a look at Clergymen and their roles in the Sherlock Holmes stories - including a couple that Sherlock Holmes himself impersonates.
