Who is your favorite Watson and why?
John C. Reilly, whose genius as a comic actor in movies like Walk Hard and Step Brothers brought a John H. Watson to the screen who could explore his relationship with Sherlock Holmes in the movie “Holmes and Watson” more than any other film Watson has done. (Yes, I’m serious about this point. There is more insight in “Holmes and Watson” than most folks would like to admit.) Unfortunately, Reilly’s Watson is not discussed on this week’s episode of The Watsonian Weekly, but you can listen to it anyway at:
If Watson was writing a story about you, what would it be titled?
“The Case of the Persistent Podcaster?” (No, that’s too Perry Mason.) How about “The Adventure of the Perpetual Writer?” That gets it, I think.
Give us an improbable fact about yourself!
I served a year aboard the S.S. Albatross under Captain Jinks and first mate Salty Sam. (It was an afternoon kids show that I wrote for and occasionally appeared on camera as “Bosun Brad.” And that’s the whole of my experience as a seaman, as I do not swim well.)
Why did you join the JHWS?
I don’t know. I think it was just cool that there was a John H. Watson Society.
(Also, it has this great podcast that you can also listen to on Apple Podcasts at
