Rank #9: Pilot Episode - Beginning of Macbeth Act 4 Scene 1

Podcast cover
Read more
Our Pilot Episode! This is the scene that inspired it all. We started out with a dramatic reading of this abridged version of the witches casting a spell. We wanted to add some elements to heighten the emotion and dramatic effect of the scene, so we added some sound effects, and thought "Hey, we should do some more of this!" And thus was born the BritLit Podcast. Enjoy!
