Rough and tough Hard-boiled detectives grab a lot of attention, but who would have a better insight on the nature of human evil than “a man who does next to nothing but hear men's real sins”?Where could you find a more “soft-boiled” character than the parish priest. Mutual brought The Adventures of Father Brown to the air in 1945. Father Brown was the antithesis of the more celebrated soft-boiled detective, Sherlock Holmes. Where Holmes was a master of deduction, Father Brown relied on intuition based on his familiarity on men's souls.The Dagger With Wings: A wealthy landowner in the West Country confesses to Father Brown that his adopted son has coerced him into dabbling into occultism in order to extend his life.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/steviek)

EPISODE 48 | Ice Ice Baby - Songs of Ice & Snow Baby, it's cold outside. That sentiment is not just part of a kind of rapey Xmas song, but a fact brought about by the ROUND Earth orbiting the sun in the way that it does and tilting on its axis. To mangle a phrase – winter has come. And with winter comes ice and snow, at least at the latitudes closer to the poles. And even here, in this brittle transparent crystalline solid, usually water, you can snow shovel up some conspiracy theories. We'll look at nature used as an insult, snow that burns, the World Ice Theory, Ice Ages that are coming (or already here), buried mountains, Nazis in Antarctica, alien vegetables, Easter Island and more.

Built around Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, a character who had been a staple on the classic radio situation comedy Fibber McGee and Molly, The Great Gildersleeve enjoyed its greatest success in the 1940s. Actor Harold Peary played the character during its transition from the parent show into the spin-off and later in a quartet of feature films released at the height of the show's popularity. On Fibber McGee and Molly, Peary's Gildersleeve was a pompous windbag who became a consistent McGee nemesis. "You're a haa-aa-aa-aard man, McGee!" became a Gildersleeve catch phrase. The character was given several conflicting first names on Fibber McGee and Molly, and on one episode his middle name was revealed as Philharmonic. Gildy admits as much at the end of "Gildersleeve's Diary" on the Fibber McGee and Molly series (10/22/40). --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mysterytheater/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mysterytheater/support

We're revisiting the performances of Peter Lorre in this bonus show, and I've selected my favorites of his six visits to "radio's outstanding theater of thrills."
