Previously Ng ,

Dr. Rap taught me Shakespeare 33 years ago!

I can still recite my favorite sonnets and Hamlet due to his amazing class and inspiration! Thanks Dr. Rapp!

Nourishment of the mind

Found Dr. Rap on YouTube when I was reading Shakespeare’s ‘Troilus and Cressida’ and quickly enjoyed his teaching style. His introduction of source material and relation of the play to Shakespeare’s other works and premises was masterful, and captivating and incredibly valuable.

This ‘povre scholar’ is the gem of my I Phone. He has articulated my love for Shakespeare in a manner I was unaware that I could express. Dr. Rap navigates the deep waters to show his listeners why Shakespeare is still deserving of our short time on earth.

That said, I might have clumsily given the Podcast a two-star review. His was my first rating and I pressed the stars from left to right. With such an intimate number of subscribers I am concerned that C33 was right ‘that we often kill the thing we love’ and I might have caused some harm to Dr. Rap’s Podcast metrics. Sorry about that chief.
