Blue Dot 86: I Hear Of Sherlock Everywhere

Jan 26, 2018

On this episode of Blue Dot, we talk to the creators of "I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere" and "Trifles." Scott Monty and Burt Wolder are not only highly successful businessmen (Monty was the head of social media for Ford Motor Company from 2008-2014), they are also two of the world's most respected Sherlockians --  experts on the world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous Great Detective and his chronicler, Dr. John H. Watson. The Holmes character was patterned after Professor Joseph Bell, Doyle's teacher and mentor from medical school in Edinborough, Scotland and is considered the progenitor of forensic science. Many a scientific mind was inspired by the original 60 stories that Doyle penned (aka "The Canon") and the immense number of portrayals of Holmes and Watson on stage, screen (film and television), radio and pastiche fiction makes Sherlock Holmes an enduringly fascinating part of our popular culture. Our guides to all things Sherlockian, Scott and Burt, will take us back to the world of Victorian London and the fog shrouded apartments of Holmes at 221B Baker Street, "where it is always 1895." The game is afoot!
