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


  • Lisa Robinson St. John's University


The Hurly Burly Shakespeare Show! is a podcast featuring creators and hosts Aubrey Whitlock and Jess Hamlet, or as they like to call themselves, Whamlet. This project walks listeners through early modern texts, the bulk of which come from Will "The Thrill" Shakespeare (as they affectionately call him). Informal and cheeky, the show is also engaging and smart, drawing on both hosts' rich expertise as academics and practitioners.
