“the Order of the Legion” [GOLD]  

What's an active Sherlockian to do when the world goes into lockdown mode and all regular Sherlockian society meetings are canceled? Pretty much what most of us did in the first two years of the pandemic: go virtual!

When Covid caused us to shelter in place, Sherlockians—a gregarious type of people—weren't about to be kept away from each other. So many societies began to have virtual meetings: video calls (invariably hosted on Zoom).

Rich Krisciunas, Steve Mason, and Edith Pounden were among scores of other Sherlockians who flitted from society to society, making use of technology to allow them to go places and see people they wouldn't have otherwise seen. They are three of the founding officers of the Legion of Zoom: the newest Sherlockian society for people who attend a certain number of virtual meetings.

What is the Legion all about, how can you join, and where can you find out about more online Sherlockian group meetings? The answers await in this episode of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.

The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will get some archival material from the IHOSE vaults.

Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by March 29, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random from among all the correct answers. All listeners are eligible to play.
