In this episode, we tackle reading King James I's Demonology so you don't have to! Because it. is. a. lot. But there's also plenty of source material in there that likely informed the depiction of witchcraft in Macbeth.

Shakespeare Anyone? is created, written, produced, and hosted by Kourtney Smith and Elyse Sharp.

Our theme music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.
