I love listening to podcasts or the radio while working away on a project, but I recently came across these two incredible archived radio play collections and thought I’d share them in case they were to your liking too!
The first is a series of old Hercule Poirot radio plays which were aired in the US in the 1940s – the ‘mysteries’ are kind of random, but I love Agatha Christie’s work and think these adaptations are just great. Here’s a list of the available episodes.
The second series also involves some detective work, though the storylines tend to be a bit more bizarre.
I came across this great collection of old Sherlock Holmes radio plays while looking through Librivox for something new to listen to while sewing. (If you have the Librivox app and search for ‘The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’, you can save them for later listening.) These plays aired in the 1930s, 40s and 50s (though with different casts over the years) and have spectacular sound effects. Here’s a link to the collection online.
Hope you enjoy them too!
