The Sober Companion



It’s episode 2 of The Baker Street Irregulars, titled “The Sober Companion.”  In this episode we take a look at Watson’s role in Holmes’ battles with addiction, and reflect on whether recent adaptations do justice to this extremely complex and intimate relationship.

Episode 3 will air two weeks from today (we promise!), and focus on how modern adaptations portray Holmes as neuroatypical.

Hope you enjoy this podcast, and please share any comments/criticisms/questions/insights you may have! We love feedback from y’all!
