“put forward with such a quiet air of mastery” [STOC] 

As regular readers and listeners know, Michael F. Whelan, BSI ("Wiggins") passed away in October of 2021. His contribution to the Sherlockian game was more than any one person could adequately describe.

To honor his memory, we gathered a number of Baker Street Irregulars to remember Mike beyond his Sherlockian self — people who knew him well and could comment on his interests, his personality, and his character. These were: Peter Blau, Ross Davies, Steven Doyle, Les Klinger, Hartley Nathan, Otto Penzler, and Steve Rothman.

We hope you can appreciate the man Mike Whelan was, what he did for the Sherlockian community, and the kind of leadership he represented.

There is no Canonical Couplet quiz in this episode; the lines are still open for answers from the previous episode, which are due by January 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
