Review of <i>The Hurly Burly Shakespeare Show!</i>

podcast review Shakespeare appropriation


The Hurly Burly Shakespeare Show! — a podcast hosted, produced, and performed by Aubrey Whitlock and Jess Hamlet — appropriates the Shakes for feels and for fun.  In all seriousness, the podcast infuses the Whamlet (Aubrey and Jess) into listeners in such a way that they leave the experience with both new content and ways to share, make, and partake in twenty-first century Shakespeare (of some four hundred years of Shakes-ing).
