Shakespeare

Elegantly told with a lot of heart. I found myself crying over my breakfast as I listened. This 20 minute episode will stay with me for a long time.

All Star Podcast

This is a great and informative podcasts. Takes dense, wonky topics, like nuclear weapons policy and breaks it down into language that is relatable and easy to digest. A+ product.
