Bonus: Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (Part 2)
Sign me up for the MasterClass where Miss Fisher teaches astrolabe reading! And, perhaps camels? While we're not sure who's giving those camels rubdowns after the sacking of the cameleer, we have no complaints about the movie physics that result in Phryne launching out of quicksand onto Jack's shirtless chest. Plus, of course, a somewhat dizzying murder recap and our ratings. While this concludes (for now), our Miss Fisher recaps, we're accepting ideas of where to take the podcast next. Female-driven narratives, wackiness, and handsome police inspectors accepted.

Bonus: Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (Part 1)(!)
At long last, we tackle THE MISS FISHER MOVIE. In true Every Lady Needs a Hobby fashion, this episode includes a scene-by-scene recap of the first half of the movie, with exactly the right amount of digression into hastily Googled facts, tangential personal anecdotes, and discussion of how plausible Phryne's madcap adventures are (not very, but we love every second). We're a bit out of practice, but we still manage to fit in multiple Harry Potter and Downton Abbey references, and come up with several spin off ideas (Shirin Abbas: Justice in Palestine, anyone?). Links to some fun facts we discovered in our research for this episode: How to dance the Black Bottom (as demonstrated by some folks from Frankie Drake Mysteries which may need to be our next show): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_iA57YoEoI Obituary of the Maharaja of Alwar (that's right, Phryne's husband IRL): https://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/newspapers/Digitised/Article/maltribune19370521-1.2.90 Bees in the desert: http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8751000/8751889.stm#:~:text=However%2C%20honeybees%20do%20survive%20in,and%20to%20pollinate%20oasis%20plants.

S3E8: Death Do Us Part
We've come at last to the FINAL EPISODE. And while that kiss does wait until literally the last minute, some might argue (Genevieve) that that's exactly perfect for a show with a permanent, sizzling undertone of unending sexual tension, some (MacKenzie) point out that they could have kissed HUNDREDS of times before the event finally takes place. Thank goodness there's a movie now! We manage to get a Harry Potter reference in, and of course, so many CLUES. There's not one but two convoluted murder plots, and a series-finale level number of insane coincidences. Next up: Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears!

S3E7: Game, Set & Murder
At long last, we've come to The Spider Episode. Not only does this episode feature a 10/10 murder method, it features A Very Healthy Amount of sexual tension. We're left wondering: is Stanley Burrows an old friend of Aunt Prudence's or an Old Friend? Plus, did tennis stars in the 1920s travel with a personal supply of bootleg whiskey? We don't answer these questions in the podcast so don't get your hopes up on that front, but we do deliver on a much-needed tangent about Jane Austen, as well as some "breaking news".

S3E6: Death at the Grand
If you thought Phryne being able to speak Polish was the skill of the week on this one, you'd be wrong! While we think there should be altogether more ghosts in this episode, there's just exactly the right amount of Aunt Prudence at her irate best. You know when an elderly relative dishes on your parents' past? And when they say that thing that everyone else is thinking out loud in front of everyone? Aunt Prudence delivers. Plus Dot gets some sexual tension and we don't hate it.
97 minutes | Apr 12, 2020
S3E5: Death and Hysteria
Don't you hate it when your house is overrun with women with nervous troubles? You let one in and the next thing you know you have a whole sanitarium on your hands. We're joined by guest host Sarah and discuss the need for another episode where Phryne goes undercover at the rodeo and we get to meet Rinaldo in the flesh. We also discuss the inordinate amount of clues strewn about the multiple crime scenes. You'd think with the high cost of consumer goods in the 1920's people wouldn't be so careless with their collar pins, but sure does help a lot with plot development. Episode sponsored by "Mewelry", Jewelry for Men by MacKenzie.

S3E4: Blood and Money
Full disclosure: we recorded this episode a few weeks/a thousand years ago before we were all in self-isolation because of COVID-19. Stay safe and healthy, friends. Wash your hands. Stay home. And listen along as Phryne achieves such feats as staying up all night, drinking a Bloody Mary with breakfast, and remaining sharp and functional all day long. (I had a beer at lunch once and couldn't coherently write an email, much less solve a murder. Good on ya, Phryne.) Dot achieves the arguably even more impressive feat of sewing a sweater in what appears to be 24 hours. And Jack achieves peak sexual tension by caressing Phryne's neck under the pretense of asking about that cut on her blouse. Get a room already, you two.

S3E3: Murder & Mozzarella
What's more ludicrous than a marinara boot print? Allowing yourself to be seduced by an Italian restaurateur without getting a meal out of it first! We learn that Phryne listens to Joni Mitchell and Concetta listens to Cher (obviously), and make apology for many Italian accent impersonations, food innuendos, and a couple non-Miss Fisher related tangents.

S3E2: Murder and the Maiden
We're joined by guest host Dan for this episode to get a manly perspective on Miss Fisher. He thinks that Miss Fisher should track down the real killer: the tobacco industry (or, is it actually someone we've never suspected but has been right in front of us the whole time?). And, Bert has a love interest who's "hemming his trousers" *wink wink*, and we discuss even more Miss Fisher/Harry Potter crossover possibilities. Warning: contains more than a few communist jokes and puns (a "Red" herring anyone?).

S3E1: Death Defying Feats
We're back, baby, we're back for Season 3- and once again, it's murder, folks. Dot is MVP this episode (give that woman a raise!), but the Baron's nerve tonic comes in a close second by teeing up that classic speech from Jack about liberal-minded men. While we have some questions about why you would ruin Cognac with sludge-like nerve tonic, and whether the real murderer is the really the ventriloquist's dummy, it doesn't keep us from loving this episode, which is SECRETLY about climate change.

S2E13: Murder Under the Mistletoe
For this Christmas special, we've created an extra special podcast! This episode will only make sense if you watch along while you listen. PLUS, there's a drinking game to play while you watch. Queue up the episode, download the podcast, and pour yourself a drink. Here are the rules: drink every time the following happens: Someone dies. Creepy taxidermy makes an appearance. Quentin acts creepy. Sexual tension (obviously!). A new sweater appears. Every time Prudence acts indignant. A CLUE is found! Happy Holidays!!

Bonus: Interview with Greg J. Walker
We're going back in time to Miss Fisher Con, where we talked to Greg Walker, composer for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and for Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears! We talk music (including some music themed murder plot line ideas), our shared love of Agatha Christie, but sadly no movie spoilers. PLUS, Greg shares some music that didn't make it into the film, and will definitely make you eager to hear what did.

Bonus: Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries E4
"Dip another pretzel into that martini and let's get down to business. We don't have time to fight over a man!" We lament the end of MOD while joined once again by guest host Maddie. Topics discussed include not only "Seasoned Murder" but the Bachelorette, Britney Spears' Instagram account, and how Genevieve thinks there's far too much infidelity on TV.

Bonus Pod LIVE EPISODE: Miss Fisher Con
In case you missed us at Miss Fisher Con, you can still catch the recording of our session right here! In this special episode we finally disclose the results of the listener poll, challenge audience members to Miss Fisher trivia, and interview Lynn Reed, Associate Producer for Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears!

Bonus: Miss Fisher Con Recap with the Miss Fisher Philes!
In a truly epic meeting of the microphones, we joined forces with the Miss Fisher Philes podcast and recorded a recap at the end of Miss Fisher Con! Meeting Mary and JoJo was a highlight of Con for us, but there were a bunch of others too! If you weren't able to join at the Con, it will almost be like you were there- more bonus content coming your way over the next couple of weeks.

Bonus: Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries E3
...OR Ms Fisher's Modern X-Files.... In this "genre-bending" episode we discuss whether perhaps all helicopters we've ever seen were really UFOs. We also learn that tel-ex machines are perhaps even better than cell phones. Also, since it's 2019, we think there should be coffee cabana-boys in our offices since there were tea ladies in both the 20s and 60s.

S2E12: Unnatural Habits
We had to get the sexual tension meter repaired after the first watch-through of this episode. After a trip to Home Depot for parts and some re-calibration, the rating was STILL off the charts. Not only do we get an almost-kiss for the ages, but Mr. Shiny Suit Sidney Fletcher and Corrupt Cop Sanderson get their come-comeuppance after some day- and night- time boat snooping by Phryne.
52 minutes | Jun 30, 2019
Bonus: Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries E2
We follow Dead Air on MFMM with Dead Beat on Modern, both featuring murders on air and double murders (RIP Oswald I and II). Guest host Maddie joins us once again as we discuss Modern Mysteries E2 and tells us about surfing as well as indoor surf fitness classes (apparently a thing!). There's an abundance of CLUES in this episode, and just the right amount of leather on Birdie.
4 minutes | Jun 29, 2019
Bonus: Listener Poll!
Listener poll is live at everyladyneedsahobby.com/poll! Whether you're joining us in July at Miss Fisher Con (and we really hope you are!) or not, we want to hear from YOU! As you know, every episode, we do ratings at the end for best and worst outfit, murder method, sexual tension, and more. Rather than keep hearing the two of us drone on, we wanted to ask YOU what you think. We'll reveal the results during our live show at Con.
