Great to stay up to date

This podcast keeps me up to date on all wonderful, weird happenings in contemporary Shakespeare - novels, movies, social media fads - scholarly and relevant, trendy and engaging.

Excellent content; interviewer too much

I love the content and the guests, such fantastic insights and topics. However, Barbara Bograve (while enthusiastic) just talks too darn much. She often interrupts the interviewee, which makes me cringe, and will ask questions to which she’ll first offer several of her own conjectures before finally letting her guest speak. I can tell that she is excited to engage on these topics, but I think the eagerness creates some imbalance, and even a little awkwardness.

A great podcast for anyone who loves Shakespeare

This is a great podcast for anyone who loves Shakespeare! As someone who has only read 18 of his plays, this podcast has thought me a ton about the pats I have read AND the ones I haven’t.

The only reason I take off a star is because this is not so friendly for those who don’t know much about Shakespeare or who haven’t ready many of his plays.
