The Pop Cultures Lens on Sherlock

In the thirty-first episode of The Pop Culture Lens podcast, Christopher Olson and I welcome friend of the podcast, and Sherlockian, Malynnda Johnson to discuss the indelible nature of famous British detective, Sherlock Holmes.

In this episode, Malynnda shares her extensive fan-based knowledge of the classic private investigator as the conversation considers the influence Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had on the world when he created the inhabitants of 221B Baker Street. Holmes’ continuing influence on today’s world provides the crux of the discussion, as he is considered to be an inspiration for various genres, from detective to superhero. Furthermore, the trio examine how the fandom around Holmes reflects the fandoms that would follow, and what the nature of the fandom says about the relationship between fans and the canon’s creator(s).

Many thanks goes out to production assistant, Jean-Michel Berthiaume, for helping produce this episode.
