The Baker Street Babes
Episode 62: Parodying Sherlock with Vidar Magnussen

What is the essence of a unibrow?

How do you make a comedic hit? You get a director who doesn't understand English, a comedian who looks like Martin Freeman, and Vidar Magnussen who writes three minutes of utter nonsense. That's BBBC's Sherlock by NRK, and it's glorious.
 
The first skit, Oklahomo, became so popular online that another was commissioned and now here's the third! Babes Maria, Taylor, and Sora sit down with mastermind Vidar to talk about how the skits came to be, specifically about 'The Case of the Missing Shoulder' and how "[i]t's a very strange collaboration of people not knowing what the hell they're doing."

Episode 61: Adam Christopher & The Ghost Line

Welcome to the Baker Street Babes Podcast, Episode #61!

Join Babes Liz and Lyndsay as they interview Adam Christopher, the author of a new series of Elementary show tie-in novels.  A longtime lover of New York and a passionate fan of Elementary, Adam is also an acclaimed comic writer, winner of the Sir Julius Vogel Award as an editor (New Zealand's highest science fiction honor), and SciFiNow's Book of the Year Winner for Empire State.

Adam (as you will hear) is also a longtime lover of the canonical Holmes, Dr. Who, and many other fannish pursuits that make him the perfect choice to provide us with fabulous spin-off Elementary adventures.  We'll chat about all these things, ask whether Holmes qualifies as a superhero, and discuss the Joan-Sherlock relationship and its importance to his new series.
