Welcome back to The Community Library! This week, keeping in theme with the idea of “classics”, my friend Laurence and I are talking all things Shakespeare. Laurence is a self-confessed Shakespeare nerd (or “Bardophile”, as he likes to be called), so I was very excited to have him on the podcast to talk about his old friend Billy Shakes. We chat about making Shakespeare more accessible, what England was like 400 years ago, and why Taylor Swift’s song Love Story is the best adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Enjoy!
December’s discussion pick was chosen by you, the listeners! The most suggested book was Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. We’ll be discussing that next week, on the 15th of December, so make sure you read along and tune in!
