We can hardly believe it, but here it is: our final episode in our Macbeth series (for now)! Before moving on to our next play, we wanted to cover how Macbeth has been adapted for stage and screen and how the myth of the hero turned tyrant continues to shape our world narratives. 

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

Music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.

Additional sound effects from https://www.zapsplat.com
