  • A wonderfully wide-ranging, amazing and sometimes “creepy” conversation with Dr. Watson. Loved it!
    As a fellow Sherlockian, I enjoyed hearing of Matt’s integration of his vocation, pipes, Sherlock Holmes, and the sharing these interests with his students.
    While Billy Squier is not an artist on my playlist, this was a pretty good rocker.
    Talk about putting your “tuchus afn tish!” That was an excellent rant about people who want your business, but don’t really give a crap about properly providing for your “business.”
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • I enjoyed the show. Your advice on how to evaluate old tins of tobacco seemed to be spot on. Seen too many guys throw money at tins because they simply wanted it only to find dust in them. Tough toenails, as they say.
    Dr. Watson was an enjoyable guest. I enjoyed his take on Sherlock Holmes. We Sherlockians are surprisingly numerous and diverse. At least Dino and I agree that Conan Doyle was a magnificent writer.
    Music was okay.
    I’ve always found that when talking to a business owner it is best to close your eyes when he is talking. If he sounds sleazy it is because he is. A bright smile and a good hand shake doesn’t mean a damn thing.
