Excellent, even for the casual Shakespeare fan

Wonderful guests; a variety of approaches and perspectives; a light, quick pace--this is a wonderful podcast, even if your interest in Shakespeare is casual. Barbara Bogaev hosts the discussions and her interview questions are insightful, pointed and witty. She is light on her feet, brilliant and able to follow her guests wherever they go. She is a gifted listener, not just a knowledgeable questioner, and she pulls the best out of her interviewees by careful attention to what they have to say, and thoughtful requests for elaboration. Truly a class act. This is not a podcast to force-feed yourself because it's "good for you", this is an interesting and lively show that is a pleasure to enjoy.

Excellent

Just listened to three in a row, fascinating. Started with interview with Deborah Harkness, who I knew as the author of The Jewel Box—can’t wait to read her novels!
