After the interruption to the schedule of two weeks ago, here’s another In GAD We Trust podcast — and given the topic of ‘Making a Good First Impression’ it’s only fitting to welcome returning guests Sergio and Brad.
We had orignally intended to discuss Ellery Queen, but life is miserable enough at the moment and so instead we’re looking at authors and sleuths alike who made a positive impression with their debuts. The list of authors tagged below will give you an idea of how broadly the conversation ranges — keeping these two on topic is like herding cats — and, man, is it ever fun to let Sergio wander into the various corners of his mind and find them packed with trivia (be sure to ask him about Geoffrey Sainsbury’s translations of Simenon, because I had to cut that out).
Thanks are due to Brad and Sergio for their time (we had to record this twice, because my technology failed us at the first attempt), to Jonny Berliner for the music, and to you for listening.
More podcast in a fornight, and then a fortnight after that on 24th July it’ll be time for A Murder is Announced (1950) by Agatha Christie to be discussed in full, spoiler-rich detail. Stay safe, keep your distance, wash you hands.
