Revisting Sherlock Holmes with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Sherry Thomas
Reminder: this is a spoiler-filled podcast. So if you’re not into that kind of thing, read the books first and come back later.
For this episode we read both Maria Headley’s translation of the Old English epic poem "Beowulf" and “The Mere Wife,” Headley's 2015 retelling of Beowulf, which is set in present-day New York.
