Dead White Males: Here’s a neat little podcast worth recommending. It’s not specifically Shakespeare, but “Dead White Males” is produced by Eric Jean, a literature student who is “considering teaching this stuff some day.” I listened to him do just under an hour on Merchant of Venice, which was pretty cool. Mostly a plot summary, but also some commentary on the characters, as well as readings of key passages.
This is not a Shakespeare only podcast, though, so I can only hope that he covers my favorite subject frequently enough that I don’t end up dropping him off my list. Other authors currently mentioned on his homepage include Alfred Lord Tennyson, William Blake, Thomas Hardy and others.
