“your celebrated friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes” [NAVA]  

A free event at DePaul University is on our radar, and it should be on yours too.

Paul Booth, a professor of digital communication and media art, developed the DePaul Pop Culture Conference over the last decade, and this year's topic is A Celebration of Sherlock Holmes.

Professor Booth joined us to discuss how different elements of society converge to form popular culture, and how Sherlock Holmes, by many measures, is the perfect representation of that. Listen in to discover the history of this fascinating conference and hear what's planned at the May 7 gathering.

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 April 14, 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.

NOTE: We have bonus material available for this episode: an excerpt of additional conversation, available only for our patrons on Patreon and for our PayPal supporters.

Please do consider becoming a Patron of the Arts. Your support helps us to ensure we can keep doing what we do, covering file hosting costs, production, and transcription services.
