When is a podcast with a focus on impossible crimes not a podcast with a focus on impossible crimes? Well, frankly, today.
With Brad and I having looked at Agatha Christie’s impossible crime novels last week, this week Dan joins the fray and we have a bit of a general discuss about Christie and her impact on our own reading. Widening our purview to include all her works, not just the impossible crime tales, this is the personal exploration of Christie you never knew you needed.
Do you want to know how Brad, perhaps the biggest Christie nerd on the blogosphere, first encountered Dame Agatha and her books? Or which Christie work Dan would take to a desert island? Are you curious about what I could possibly see in a body of work of over 70 books that keeps bringing me back for more, even as their quality degrades?
If not, I cannot stress just how much this isn’t the podcast for you, since that’s exactly what we discuss — and more! — this week. It’s all spoiler free, of course, so even though we cover a vast range of titles, and you’ll arguably get much more out of this if you’ve read a bunch of Christie, too, it’ll spoil nothing and hopefully whet your appetite for the Queen of Crime and her criminous (written) wares.
And so, on with it…
The podcast, while remaining a lot of fun, is proving increasingly difficult to find common time to record, and so — while it’s most certainly going to be a running concern, and not folding any time soon — neither Dan nor I can guarantee when the next episode will come out. That next episode should be a look at the “rules” of impossible crime stories as promised before (we broke from the planned schedule to record these two episodes on account of Brad’s presence in out midst) but whether it’ll be out in September or sometime in 2023 I can’t say as yet.
This news will not, I’m sure, ruin anyone’s day, but we appreciate having anyone at all listening and wanted to put you in the picture as fully as possible.
