Are you a Sherlock Holmes Realist?


It's a new year and time to try a few new things. 

For the podcast "Sherlock Holmes is Real," this means following the example of Sherlock Holmes and recruiting its own "irregulars." After thirteen episodes of hosts Talon King and Paul Thomas Miller and an ever-changing series of attempted regulars, guests, and experiments, "Sherlock Holmes is Real" is forming its own Sherlockian society and inviting them to help explore Watson's documentary footage.

Enter the Sherlock Holmes Realist Society.

Saturday at noon Talon King time (CST) and six in the evening Paul Thomas Miller time (GMT), the first episode of "Sherlock Holmes Is Real" for 2022 will record as the first meeting of the Sherlock Holmes Realist Society.

If you're at all familiar with the current seasons of "Sherlock Holmes is Real," you know that show examines the actual documentary footage shot by John H. Watson in the Victorian era, then doctored with opening and end credits to look like a 1954 TV show. Peeling back the verbal veneer that Watson put over his life with Sherlock Holmes in the literary Canon, the Watson documentary footage provides astounding evidence of the real relationship between Holmes and Watson, and so much more.

On Saturday, the Sherlock Holmes Realist Society will watch the footage found on YouTube under the title "The Jolly Hangman" and discuss just what it reveals of our heroes -- along with Paul and Talon, our usual show-folk. 

And you're welcome to join. Attending automatically makes you a member of the Sherlock Holmes Realist Society, and will also provide you with one more Zoom society meeting notch on you belt, if you're trying for Legion of Zoom status.
