There's so much to talk about with each play that doesn't fit into the synopsis or into its own episode, so we've decided to cover several topics in this episode. In this episode, we discuss major thematic elements in Shakespeare's Macbeth as well as topics that are usually covered or talked about in reference to this play. 

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

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