Is there a best choice? Find out!



In the second half of the show, we visit with Scott Monty from the I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere and Trifles podcasts about the original fanfest -- the BSI Dinner in New York City. Held every January around the fictional birthday of Sherlock Holmes, the Baker Street Irregulars hold a gala dinner that is strictly invitation only.
