The PodwitsDion is back this week and has acquired some land, a new title, and is wearing a kilt. Brian on the other hand, has been pleasantly surprised at the classic he’s been reading this month for his book club, which lead the fellas into an analysis on what is a classic, what is pretentious, and when is your opinion just the final word on the matter! It’s a studious and learned edition of this week’s Podwits‘ Podcast!

Footnotes:

Here is Brian’s post on Sherlock Holmes’ foil, Solar Pons, a book series he wholeheartedly recommends.

Here is another article Brian wrote, this time about Scott Lynch’s highly regarded Gentlemen Bastards series.

Dion mispoke when mentioning Raymond Chandlers’ critical essay; it is in fact called The Simple Art of Murder.
