  • Love the hosts’ POVs on each Shakespeare play

    Listening to James and Will discuss each Shakespeare play is the highlight of my week. Their individual POVs are fascinating and fun, especially when they are at odds. I like Shakespeare a lot but these two have really opened my eyes, or rather my ears, to new plays and new facets of plays I thought I knew inside-out. I’m so glad they’re doing this podcast, and I look forward to it each time they discuss another play.

  • Deepening my interest

    James and Will have a wonderful format, going from the earliest plays and poems of Shakespeare and engaging the plots, themes and staging issues. I have to confess my interest in Shakespeare is growing with each podcast. They are great to listen to, not academic in tone but academically informed. And they draw parallels with contemporary theater and television. Great and ambitious project, well done!!
