  • Shakespeare Unlimited

    Excellent series of podcasts. My only problem with them is also my only problem with the Folger Library itself—it is not truly scholarly. Instead, it’s part of a faith-based cult that refuses to look objectively at the historical question of who wrote Shakespeare. During the last decade, they have gone from being neutral on this question to ignoring it and censoring those who try to introduce relevant evidence.
