The Miss Fisher Philes are headed to Australia!!!

We’re making the journey to Oz in July of 2018 to be extras in Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears, and we are beyond excited! We’ll be reporting on our adventures on both this podcast and our new travel podcast, Miss Adventure. (If you haven’t checked it out yet, give it a listen!)

Do you live in the Melbourne area? Will you also be traveling to Oz in July? We want to hear from you! We’re hoping to organize some kind of meet up while we’re there. We’d also love to hear any tips you have for places we should visit—attractions, restaurants, etc.—while we’re in Melbourne, so please drop us a line!

And now, let’s head over to Studio 3JH.

Today we are joined by The Tailor, Chandler’s oft-mentioned husband, who describes the origins of the radio industry and the Golden Age of Radio. We discuss Dot and Hugh’s situation and how society would have viewed a married woman working in the ’20s. There is much drooling over the vintage props, and our costume talk is especially animated with three opinions rather than our usual two.

Poor, poor Miss Lavender. According to Phryne, she was “cold as a halibut on ice”—and that’s when she was still alive! We talk about cyanotypes, the hidden agenda in women’s magazines in the ’20s, Phryne as employer, and the awesomeness of Camellia, Lin’s Communist revolutionary fighter bride.

Rank #6: Ruby Rees – Live at Miss Fisher Con

Ruby Rees

It was an honor and a delight to interview Ruby Rees at Miss Fisher Con 2018. Ruby, who plays Phryne’s adopted daughter Jane, proved to be a wealth of information and insight into the show, her role, and what it was like to work with her fellow Miss Fisher cast members.

She also discussed other projects, like the recent Picnic at Hanging Rock (available here on Amazon Prime Video) and her debut feature film called “Women By the Sea,” for which she is currently seeking funding. It is set to the be the first Australian film to feature an entirely female-identifying cast AND crew! For more information and to support the project, go to the Indigogo page. You can also follow her on Instagram at @rubes_rees.

Ruby delivered one of our favorite quotes from the Con: “I think anyone that reads a lot can do ANYTHING,” and left us with a beautiful and inspiring toast to the Phryne in all of us. Cheers to you, Ruby!

Special thanks to the Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas for coordinating the interview.

Also, the Miss Fisher Philes have launched a GoFundMe campaign to help us take the podcast to Australia later this year. If you enjoy this podcast and are so inclined, we would love your support!

Quick, call Phryne! There’s a ghost in the theatre! Oh, yeah—and murder and stuff. Dot’s crush gets crushed. Hugh does some very important personal research. Jack shows a sudden new interest in theatre. And Phryne “makes thirsty when most she satisfies.”

Rank #9: Miss Fisher Con 2017 Recap

Podcast cover
Read more

We had such a wonderful time at Miss Fisher Con! We wanted to do a recap for those of you who couldn’t make it so you had a sense of what it was like—and, honestly, so we could just continue the post-Con glow.

We tried to recap that entire weekend to the best of our ability, but we realized later that we forgot to mention the panel right before ours. It was called “Character Evolution: Jack Robinson, Never Ending Source of Mystery” with Judy and Bianca, and it included thoughts on the character of Jack Robinson as well as audio of Nathan Page answering fan questions.

Huge thanks to The Adventuresses Club of the Americas for putting this event together. We know it was a beastly amount of work, but we are so thankful you made it happen! It was fantastic to meet everyone and to now be able to put a name to a handle.

Kickstarter!

Hooray for the news of Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears!!! Go to Kickstarter to pledge, if you haven’t already. The clock is winding down, but there’s still time!

And now, welcome to Brown Town.

We needed to add some color to this otherwise very brown show, so we invited back the always-fabulous JoJo Stiletto to help us dissect this episode. Also joining us is the delightful and witty Sailor St. Claire, who has a past as a “reluctant wine maker” and also a wine reviewer. Sailor takes us through the process of making wine, we take a poll on feelz regarding the controversial scarf, we talk role reversals, and we revel in the sumptuousness of the final scene.

The discussion is also helped along by our imbibing of wine that hails from the region featured in the episode. Shout out to Patrick, local wine expert and fellow Miss Fisher fan, who helped us select the good stuff!

It’s been a month since Miss Fisher Con 2018, and we are really missing the Phandom! It was such a delight to be in the company of so many intelligent, capable, and kind people who also geek out over Miss Fisher! This episode is a loose rundown of highlights of the Con. We tried to capture the feel of the weekend for those of you who couldn’t be there, as well as for those of you who want to relive the experience. We hope to see you ALL in 2019!

A huge, huge thank you to the phenomenal Adventuresses who made this all happen! We know this was a big event to put together, so thank you for all the time and energy you put into it. It was one helluva party!

Soooo, yeah. It’s been a while. Sorry about that. We recorded this about 10 days after the punch-to-the-gut that was the U.S. election. Things were still pretty fresh and there was no way we could avoid the topic. So fair warning—the first part of this podcast is very political. If you don’t want to hear our political talk, I would suggest you skip forward to 19:00 where the show recap actually starts.

As for the actual recap, we get into a lot of World War I stuff, costumes, Mrs. Bulwhatsit, Victorian Spiritualism, Jack’s reaction to the whole “sanctity of the boudoir” scene. You know, the usual stuff.

Rank #15: 3.2 — Murder and the Maiden

Podcast cover
Read more

Dear Jack and Hugh,

We are extremely disappointed in you. You are acting like pubescent boys and need to dial that male entitlement way back if you’re going to be worthy of the women you love.

Hugh, no more trying to restrict Dot to “womanly” duties (e.g. wedding planning). She’s good at her job and has much help to offer you, if you’ll only let her.

Jack, no more grousing about Phryne’s “old friends.” She is what she is and you love her for it.

As penance, you are each to write a 1,000 word essay on Toxic Masculinity. We expect it on our desk first thing in the morning.

As for you, Phryne and Dot… keep up the good work.

xoxo, The Miss Fisher Philes

So, I think we ALL know the big deal about this episode. We try so incredibly hard to discuss everything we can think of—bad accents, Post War Phryne, art—while all we really want to talk about is That Scene. We manage to control ourselves quite nicely…until we just can’t do it anymore.

Have we got a show for you! 

Join us for an amazing chat with Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger of Every Cloud Productions, the team behind Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. We talked about why they created the show, what they want to accomplish with the movie, and how it feels to work on a show with such a devoted fan base.

Some favorite moments from the interview:

  • Styling Miss Fisher as a female Indiana Jones
  • Talking about Dot’s journey from fear to bravery
  • Learning to make a film together as a team
  • The different perceptions of the show in Australia versus North America
  • Also, Deb drops this classic line: “We murder people nicely.”

We loved this conversation so much. Thank you, Deb and Fiona for joining us! And thank you to our fellow Miss Fisher Philes for listening!

It’s the Movie Making episode, where Phryne is suddenly a film investor. There’s precious little banter, the American accents are a little dubious, but we do enjoy the exploration of filmmaking in the ’20s. Chandler talks about the origins of the “talkie,” Mary questions the singular use of the b-word, we applaud Phryne’s ability to win over a film crew, and we lament The Scene at the End.

No more dour anarchists. This time we’re thrust into the world of Italian families in Melbourne who have been rivals for generations.

Mentioned in this episode:

The Mozzarella Murders,” a mystery written by Mary’s husband Erik Hanberg.
