The Three Patch Podcast is a podcast dedicated to the fandom culture, social issues, creative works, and analysis inspired by and related to the BBC drama series, Sherlock. Broadcasting monthly episodes since 2013, our crew of consulting fans tackle character analysis and speculation, highlight fan ingenuity and enthusiasm, explore the shipping and relationship-side of things, and share some of the more comic aspects of this fandom life. The name for the podcast is in reference to the three patch problem of A Study in Pink.

Our sister podcast, Spoilercast, covers setlock and spoilers (and corresponding speculation) for the next series of Sherlock.
