Not only did Agatha Christie write fascinating books, stage plays and poetry, but she also successfully tried her hand at radio plays. Her first radio play, Yellow Iris, was an adaptation of the short story under the same name that appeared in The Regatta Mystery. To commemorate the 80th birthday of Queen Mary in 1947, Christie wrote a radio play titled Three Blind Mice. Most of Agatha Christie’s novels have also been adapted into audiobooks.

All About Agatha

All About Agatha is an audio podcast dedicated, naturally enough, to all things Agatha Christie! For five years, Christie super-fans Catherine Brobeck and Kemper Donovan revisited Christie's novels in publication order, ranking them according to pre-set criteria (plot, character, setting, etc.). Tragically, Catherine Brobeck passed away at the end of 2021. Since then, Kemper has completed the podcast's ranking project, and now contents himself with interviewing like-minded obsessives (including contemporary mystery authors who count Christie as an influence), dissecting new adaptations, and just generally trying to solve the age-old mystery of why Christie—and Christie alone—endures as powerfully as she does. He's even turned his own hand to mystery writing, with his debut mystery novel, The Busy Body, due out in 2024—very much inspired by Agatha Christie, but of course!
