The Baker Street Babes
About This Show
The Baker Street Babes are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans who talk about everything from canon to Cumberbatch, Charles Augustus Milverton to Jude Law, and dancing men to Jeremy Brett.
We love Sherlock Holmes and we love having well informed, but also quite fun discussions about it. We’re all young and we’re all females, but we’re all die hard Sherlockians/Holmesian.
It’s a demographic within the Sherlock Holmes fandom that is new and growing and doesn’t yet have a voice. We hope to become that voice and we want to prove that we’re not just going to coo over Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch, as lovely as they are, but that we know the canon and want to have discussions about it as well.

BSB Live & Local 6: Bonnie MacBird and Unquiet Spirits
Babe Ardy visits Bonnie MacBird for tea, shortbread, and a discussion of Unquiet Spirits, the second of MacBird's trilogy of Holmes pastiches. Join us to hear about what it's like to write and research a Holmes novel, including tales of location-scouting for books, and visiting whisky distilleries by way of research. We also chat about the historical background for the book and Ardy learns a lot about wine, whisky, and why writing a pastiche is both fun and challenging. Ardy's review of Unquiet Spirits can be found here on the BSB site. The book is available at Amazon UK, Amazon US, and all good bookshops! The annotations to Unquiet Spirits are here on Bonnie MacBird's website. You can keep up with Bonnie MacBird's work here, on her website.

Quite possible the best Sherlock Holmes podcast!
These ladies know their stuff and they have a ton of fun with it, which is the best thing! They're knowledgeable and have introduced me to so many new iterations of Holmes and Watson.
