In this week’s “This Week in Shakespeare,” I mentioned the recent release of the latest episode of Slate Magazine’s “Lend Me Your Ears” podcast, which focuses on the nexus between Shakespeare and politics. This episode is focused on the play Richard II and the end of the Elizabethan period.
I finally got around to listening to this yesterday (while prepping to spend the evening with Tom Hanks as Falstaff (he was Falstaff, not me).
And man, is it good.
And tomorrow? How ’bout that Hanks in Hank Four?
