"Holmes crouched down behind the screen" [HOUN] Every four years, the Baker Street Irregulars host a conference of sorts. We shared with you some of our impressions from the Chautauqua conference in Episode 104. This time, we step back to the conference immediately preceding it - Behind the Canonical Screen, which took place in Los Angeles at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in 2012. We're joined by Lyndsay Faye, BSI ("Kitty Winter"), ASH and Ashley Polasek, ASH, who co-edited the book containing the papers and presentations from the conference, Sherlock Holmes: Behind the Canonical Screen, published by the BSI Press. They tell us about the goings-on at the conference, of watching the screenings while attending an academic symposium, the power of symbolism, costume and more.

My go to podcast for Sherlock related material
This is my "go-to" podcast for all things Sherlokian. The podcasters are extremely knowledgeable about the subject and often are able to bring in many interesting guests for interviews. Love it!
