221b con podcast

Going to 221b Con? Like to read fanfic? Wanna talk about it?

The mods at @reading221b have FANTASTIC news - in conjunction with @threepatchpodcast, we’re going to be hosting a LIVE, IN-PERSON reading discussion at @221bcon in the Three Patch Podcast Suite! Mods @tiltedsyllogism and gentlespirit will be on hand to lead a discussion of thesardine’s Left Unsaid.

Left Unsaid is unrated (but roughly teen-level), Johnlock, and is a quick read at about 2K words long. thesardine is a wonderful author and the discussion is sure to be a great one.

The exact time and date of the discussion hasn’t been decided (it’ll depend on what else is going on that weekend) but we’ll announce as soon as we know. And if you miss that announcement - just stop the TPP Suite at the con and someone there will undoubtedly help you out. (And also probably feed you, and give you things to color, and hit you up for knitting, and all that good stuff.)

We are SO excited to be teaming up with the TPP crew and we cannot WAIT to see all of you at the con to discuss these fics!


It took a year of planning (and an SUV to haul a fireplace), but we finally got to invite everyone into the Three Patch Podcast Con Suite at 221B Con!  It made us so happy when people enjoyed dixiebell’s fireplace.Arwel Wyn Jones even complimented it!  Thank you to everyone who came to hang out and squee with us during this amazing con.  We already have ideas for the Three Patch Podcast Con Suite 2015!

We are absolutely delighted to announce the Baker Street Babes’ 221B Con schedule of appearances and podcast topic!

Sunday at 10:00 am is our live podcast! The topic at hand will be:

Ashley Polasek and Sherlockian Film Since 1900

Ashley Polasek is an “Aca-Sherlockian,” happily living at the crossroads of academia, traditional Sherlockiana, and contemporary fandom. She has spoken about Sherlock Holmes at academic conferences across the US, UK, and continental Europe, and she will graduate with her PhD on adaptations of Sherlock Holmes in July of 2014. She has been published in the Baker Street Journal, and was a speaker at the “Behind the Canonical Screen” conference in Los Angeles in 2012; she will co-edit (with Lyndsay Faye) the conference’s companion volume for the BSI Press. Ashley has been previously interviewed on CNN International and CBS Sunday Morning, and she can be found on Twitter @SherlockPhD.

The above is a picture of Ashley holding Thank You Carrot, a large gift to the Babes for their charity efforts following the first Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Ball to benefit Wounded Warrior Project.  We can’t wait for the interview and hope you’ll join us!

The Fourth Wall

Our group costume for the contest depicts a well known wall in 221B Baker street, the one that had it coming - The fourth wall. The back panels included fanart, notes, and graffiti by attendees at 221B Con who visited the Three Patch Con Suite, and our crime scene wall featured mug shots of fellow Sherlock fans who sent us their photos.

This year for the threepatchpodcast Suite at 221b Con, Consulting Fan dixiebell recreated none other than…Speedy’s! However, magical transformations don’t happen without some hiccups! Consulting Fans dixiebell and bored-qui had to make some last minute changes to the installation. But after some runs to the hardware store for heavy duty supplies, Speedy’s came to life inside the TPP Suite! 

The 221b fireplace and crime scene wall also made a return appearance, joining the hand-stenciled 221b wallpaper and a photobombing Ben to create a fun and memorable fannish hangout space for 221b Con attendees. Hope you all had fun! We sure did!
