A scattershot podcast about William Shakespeare and his works.
David Tennant = Richard Hammond.0.o
I'm just saying that Tennant in the movie looks like Richard Hammond, especially the hair. You guys know it's true!
Screw the survey - I have no idea who Richard Hammond is. (I guess I'll have to Google him) I really like seeing the Bad Quarto/Good Quarto/First Folio editions side by side, (never had the opportunity to do a side-by-side comparison before) and hearing about the various historical antecedents for "Hamlet". Educational and entertaining as always, guys!
Richard Hammond is from the British show Top Gear.
Yo, poll is closed. New episode now please? :3
I messed up the poll length, sorry about that. It looks like no one wants to help us pick our next episode, so we'll have to do that on our own. You guys are even lazier than we are! :P
How about Taming of the Shrew?
I'll put Taming on the list, but we just went to a performance of Much Ado About Nothing, so that's going to be the next episode.
Yo... it's been a month and some change. What's the dealio. You know I need my fix of BardCast every now and again.
Wow, the time does fly! I've gotta get into gear, I can't even blame Jeff this time!
Here's an episode of the Skeptoid podcast on the authorship question. http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4280You already know everything he brings up, but a lot of people listen to it and some of them are bound to doubt that Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare. So it's awesome.
Any ETA on the Much Ado podcast, my community theatre group are doing this play next so would love to be able to play it for the cast.
I'm wrapping it up now, sorry it's late! Should be up within an hour.
Don't know if you fellas had heard of it but I remembered it when you were talking about Hamlet fiction from the perspective of other characters; there's a book called Gertrude and Claudius by John Updike. I remember reading it years ago and finding it really interesting.Keep up the good work guys.Allie, Wales
Hey, guys! I remember hearing this episode a while back about the perspectives (Ophelia, G&C etc.) and thought you might wanna have a look at this pretty crass, modern interpretation. Even in the free preview, it's a side by side comparison of text and an alternate reality where Hamlet is in an emo band with Horatio and Marcellus. Not sure how I feel about it haha, but that's your call! It's here:http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008YPR8UI
