An absolute delight

I had the pleasure of meeting Shakespeare at my local renaissance festival recently and that experience made my day! It was through that interaction that I found out about this podcast and I’m so delighted I did because it is every bit as enjoyable as his live performances. I cannot say enough kind things about this man, he is a shining example of why nerds are the best kinds of people!

Amazing as always

I have watched Shakespeare at many different renaissance festivals in clueing CTRF and MFRF(midsummer). I am happy to say that he preforms on his podcast the same way he does in person. His energy is unmatched and I was laughing during his podcast with Daniel Greenwolf along with others. This man is one of the best humans I’ve ever met and I’m glad to have met him. If you want to see something more visual follow him on Facebook to watch his cooking series. You will have fun, you will laugh, and you may cry, it’s Shakespeare people tragedy happens, but at the end of the day no matter where you engage with this man you will be entertained. He embodies what a performer should be. You love me, I love you Shakespeare, please stay awesome.

Sorry this is so long.

Your pal
