The Shakespeare podcast Shakespeare would have listened to!* This weekly podcast comes in several flavors. Every other week, you'll get our regular episode features a lightning round on several intersections of Shakespeare and the present day, an underused Shakespearian phrase that you can roll into your everyday conversation to impress/annoy your friends, and a homework assignment currently being blown off by a lazy high school student from the internet. Once a month, we offer SO YOU'RE GOING TO SEE SHAKESPEARE, a half-hour briefing on a specific play to listen to on your commute to the theater that will prepare you to be the best little audience member you can be. And in the fourth week of the month, Dan and Kevin will provide some Shakespearian wildcard programming that will almost certain result in them swearing at each other. (*we assume.)

Great, hilarious podcast

If you are looking for a serious academic or technical discussion here, keeeeep moving. But if you enjoy two talented bro dudes sitting around, talking about theatre, slowly getting drunk, making terrible puns, and occasionally saying something very witty and profound, then this is for you. Very addictive, but no commitment required. The guys are hilarious and knowledgeable. I especially enjoy the “so you’re going to see”s. I know they’re going to read this on the show, so, hi!

Funny, smart, favorite podcast
