Introducing the first of our Mini Episodes! 

In these mini-episodes, we’ll be exploring topics that are related to Shakespeare but aren’t necessarily connected to whatever play we’ve been discussing.

And they’re mini, because well, they’re shorter than our other episodes. They’re like quartos if the regular episodes are folio editions. 

In this episode, we dive into the Gunpowder Plot--an event which shook Early Modern England and shaped Shakespeare's Macbeth

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

Note: When this episode was recorded, Kourtney Smith was "Korey Leigh Smith".

Episode written and researched by Kourtney Smith with contributions by Elyse Sharp.

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