Henry IV, Part II

We kind of rag on Falstaff in this one, but the next episode is exclusively about him, so I hope he doesn't mind too much.

PS. (The new host we were trying seems to be broken. I'm working on a solution now.)
PPS. (I've re-hosted it. I hope it works this time!)

Shakespeare In Fiction

It's been a while, but we finally have a new episode. This one's about Shakespeare as a fictional character. Our next episode will be about Henry IV, Part II.

Popular children's series
