As the COVID-19 pandemic rolls into its 348th week, Brad from AhSweetMysteryBlog is here with some salutary advice.
See, back in March, Brad made a great case for the approaching crisis and enforced isolation being the perfect circumstances in which to read some mystery fiction, and he’s here today to expand upon that theme and suggest five ways in which a GAD fixation is the perfect preparation for these COVID-curtailed times.
If you’re looking to justify the hours you’ve spent in your reading chair/hammock/nook over the last few weeks, this is the episode for you. You’ll naturally be desperate to know whether we’re able to fit in yet another mention of the films of Alfred Hitchcock — fast becoming an IGWT staple — and, as added incentive, you’ll get to hear me pay a compliment to the First Period novels of Ellery Queen…what more could you want?
The audio player is below, or you can click here to open it in your own browser; I apologise for the sound on my side of things going a bit woolly after a few minutes — it’s almost like Zoom itself knew that you only really want to hear what Mr. Friedman had to say and was trying to edge me out of the conversation.
Hope you enjoy…
Thanks, of course, to Brad for his time — though hopefully he’ll turn his phone off when we next record — to you for listening, and to Jonny Berliner for the music.
