Sidekicks. They get in the way more than they get to the goal. They're like heroes... but not really. Video games are no different. Our digital journeys are filled with countless sidekicks, companions, simps - call them what you want - and they drive us crazy with ill-timed commentary, horrible aim and "block the doorway" physics. Why can't we get …
 
Our "Sherlock Selects" summer series concludes here with a real show-stopper! "The Copper Beeches" is one of Conan Doyle's most atmospheric and engaging mysteries, featuring a female client with moxie and a country manse full of fear. We had a great time talking over this story back in May of 2017 and proudly re-present it here today in wrapping up…

Baker. Featuring our first ever guest joining…

This episode we discuss Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince as well as The Animals In That Country by the super-talented Laura Jean McKay. We also talk about witches and wizards, and our favourite animal characters from other books. Enjoy…
 
When old age hands you lemons... it's time to take monkey gland injections from a quack Czech doctor! Or, at least, that's what Professor Presbury might have once suggested. This curious tale is as close as Conan Doyle ever gets to showcasing the hardships of graceful aging to the love-struck pensioner. Yes, "The Adventure of the Creeping Man" is f…
 
Mars and Hell have alot in common. Both are orange in appearance and can be annoyingly hot. Kind of like lasagna. But unlike that Italian dish, the other two were visited by bulky action heroes and at one point also contained the most coveted video game weapon of all time - the BFG. On today's episode, we went to Hell and back to bring you everythi…
 
In this gritty crime thriller, Detective Sergeant John Rebus makes his literary debut. Ian Rankin draws on rich material from the city of Edinburgh and his native Scotland in sculpting his protagonist's first adventure. From the dank alleyways of Auld Reekie to the spirited influence of Stevenson's "Jekyll and Hyde", Rankin works hard with his firs…
 
Howwwlooo! Welcome to Wolf & Cub Review, where each week we review one adult book and one young reader book.

Plus some other shenanigans thrown in! * H…
 
A grizzly harpoon murder and a protégé inspector lure Sherlock and Watson out of London and into the remote Weald of East Sussex in this atmospheric adventure. Originally published in 1904, this yarn was collected and re-published a year later in "The Return of Sherlock Holmes". Our "Sherlock Selects" Summer mini-series continues here with a return…
 
Our "Sherlock Selects" mini-series continues to buffer the Summer's bigger reads, this time with a conversation on "The Bruce Partington Plans" from May 2018. Originally published in 1908 (and featured in the later collection "His Last Bow") this story of stolen government plans in a fog-draped London overflows with intrigue and eventually ranked a…
 
Published in 1977, "A Morbid Taste For Bones" introduced Brother Cadfael to the world, a Welsh Benedictine monk of the 12th Century with a penchant for solving crimes. Although Ellis Peters establishes a dynamic back-story for her protagonist, set amidst the turmoil of the First Crusade, the vibe of his first adventure is decidedly more "crofter in…
 
Let's be honest: fighting games suck. We can button mash & keep holding the block button all we want in Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or some random one-off (see: this episode's title), but it's all BS. Honestly, who could stand there and take a 25 hit combo to the face and not be instantly dead? On today's episode we pause our game, check the move…
 
Second in our series of "Sherlock Selects" for the Summer is "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box". Originally published in January of 1893 (and first covered on LTP in June of 2017), Conan Doyle himself ruled against anthologizing this tale due to its controversial subject matter. But you can't keep a good story down and "The Cardboard Box" would s…
 
Have you ever wondered what famous people actually eat? In our new podcast, Guardian restaurant critic Grace Dent does just that, asking well-known guests to lift the lid on the food they turn to when they’re at home alone – and what comfort foods have seen them through their lives. In the first episode, screenwriter Russell T Davies tells Grace ab…
 
The year is 1996. It is a blissful time of ALF, pogs and Tupac. However, a dark animal abuse simulator was on the horizon. It was Pokémania! But where do you even begin - the cards, the anime, the hundreds of video games? On today's episode, we'll expertly guide you through the entire Pokémon franchise as best we can. From Abra all the way to Zubat…
 
This season, we'll be buffering new episodes with re-introduced and smaller story reviews. For these selections, we reach back into our first season vaults and renew our love for some favourite Sherlock pieces and chats. First up is "The Abbey Grange", one of Josh's choices from The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Originally published in March of 2018, …
 
"Later" marks the third and most recent crime story written by Stephen King for the Hard Case Crime label. Offering readers a predictable mix of the supernatural and police procedural, the horror master's latest tale continues his career penchant for coming-of-age narratives with soul-searching themes. Josh and Scott break down the narrative and we…
 
Josh and Scott kick off a new series of crime story explorations with a trip to Lindsey Davis's Ancient Rome, guided by Imperial Informant, Marcus Didius Falco.

Scusi the interruption, paisonos! We're celebrating our monumental 30th episode in the least embarrassing way we can thing of by watching the MOST embarrassing thing Nintendo has ever produced - 1989's "The Super Mario Bros Super Show!". We discuss two episodes of the classic cartoon that taught us more about plumbing than we could have ever imagin…
 
What hasn't been said about "The Legend of Zelda"? For 35 years, it continues to capture the hearts of anyone that ventures into the magical land of Hyrule to help Link save the princess, stop Ganon and save the world. Today, we pay homage to it by not paying homage to it. Instead we're celebrating Zelda Rubinstein, the actress from the 1982 film "…
 
We live in a society where humanity adheres to certian codes. Moral codes. Codes of Law. Garage Door Codes. Codec Code frequencies. But what if there was just one code that rose above the rest. A code so powerful and universal it transcended all of space and time as we knew it. In today's episode, we dissect the most famous video game cheat of all …
 
Chandler's final complete Marlowe novel was written at a time of deteriorating health and tumultuous circumstances for the author. Not surprisingly, some of these conflicts from 1958 find their way into the story. Marlowe is different here and the narrative is markedly unique, in ways both satisfying and off-putting to readers. Josh and Scott compl…
 
In 1996, "Resident Evil" was released and took the world by storm and helped define the survival horror genre.

So watch along while listening and join us in Raccoon Forest! (YouTube version also available - our …

(YouTube version also available - …
 
1953 saw the publication of Raymond Chandler's sixth Philip Marlowe novel, "The Long Goodbye". Chandler himself regarded it as his best work and many fans agree.

In our first new episode in four months, we talk about what we have been up to during our hiatus. What kind of video games did we play? Is it possible for someone to be an incel, simp, virgin and cuck all at once? Do Wario and Waluigi have the same private parts as us normal humans? All these questions are answered along with many other surpises. S…
 
Driven by amphetamine, Graham Greene knocked out this thriller in only 6 weeks of 1939 in a rented room of a Bloomsbury flat. He wrote fervently as premonitions of a second world war grew more tangible around him. Josh and Scott take a break from their Raymond Chandler campaign to investigate and weigh the merits of this compelling espionage advent…
