I have always been an enormous Agatha Christie nerd, so I finally decided to do something about it, and created a podcast with a friend of mine.

The general purpose of All About Agatha is to geek out over Christie and the detective/mystery genre overall.... Our more specific purpose is to read/analyze/critique/adore all 66 of Christie’s mystery novels, and to rank them according to certain pre-set criteria, not because our opinion is in any way controlling, but because imposing objective standards on a subjective experience like reading a novel is the kind of flawed/maddening exercise that leads to further, more fruitful evaluation and discussion.

By the end of the podcast, we hope to have not just a fully-ranked master list of Christie’s books, but a legitimately robust idea of how Christie does what she does as an author, in a literary sense: something few have bothered to explore, despite (or more likely because of) her overwhelming popularity. Along the way we’re taking regular breaks to examine her prodigious output beyond mystery novels (short stories, plays, non-mystery novels, etc.), to chat with others in the mystery-writing field, and to explore Christie’s own fascinating personal story.
