Hark! The 87th Precinct Podcast


Welcome to Hark! The 87th Precinct Podcast.

Between 1956 and 2005, Ed McBain (1926 - 2005) wrote 55 novels set in the detective division of the 87th Precinct. His revolutionary style of Police Procedural narrative had a massive impact on the cultural landscape of literature, film and TV. This podcast takes a sequential (and usually SILLY) look at the books and associated films and TV.

In this podcast, Three good pals, Paul, Morgan & Stevo, are sequentially re-reading their shared favourite series of books - the 87th Precinct novels. Along the way, they look at the context and time in which they were written, their influence and influences and absolutely anything else that might come to mind. They offer a uniquely British perspective on this most American of literature, with plenty of nonsense thrown in along the way.
