Introducing Tea, Tonic, and Toxin – a new mystery podcast and book club hosted by Sarah Harrison and Carolyn Daughters!
Tea, Tonic, and Toxin is a new book club and podcast for people who love mysteries, thrillers, entertaining detective stories, introspection, plot twists and red herrings, and lively conversation. Each month, your hosts, Carolyn Daughters and Sarah Harrison, will discuss a game-changing tale that has stood the test of time. We’ll work our way from the 19th century onward chronologically so we can see firsthand how the genre evolved.
IN A NUTSHELL: You’ll read. We’ll discuss. And we’ll all start at the very beginning with Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Murders in the Rue Morgue.”
Join us, won’t you?
“The Murders in the Rue Morgue”: Edgar Allan Poe
“The Murders in the Rue Morgue” may be the first modern detective story. It’s a launching point for the genre and our conversation.
Starting with Edgar Allan Poe’s “Murders in the Rue Morgue,” your hosts, Sarah Harrison and Carolyn Daughters, will move one by one, month by month, through game-changing novels and stories from the 19th and 20th centuries. Together, we’ll see firsthand how the genre evolved. The mysteries and thrillers we choose will offer opportunities for lively discussion, along with exceptional entertainment value.
To that end, we’ll be entertaining ideas, prospects, theories, doubts, and grudges, along with the occasional guest. And we hope to entertain you, dear friend, just as we want you to experience the joys of reading some of the best mysteries and thrillers ever written.
