You know, it’s easy to forget how long I’ve been doing this. Going all the way back to 2006 I linked to a podcast called Some Guy From New York. The gimmick was that he’d been sentenced to community service teaching Shakespeare, and he was working his way through the sonnets, analyzing each one.
That was a long time ago, and his is not the first Shakespeare podcast to come and go. But a funny thing happened this time. Several different people over the years found their way to that post and asked if there was any way to get in touch with the creator.
I do love a challenge. I was able to contact Jason Pomerantz, the original Some Guy From New York, and asked if he’d like me to re-host the original podcast files for him.
So, I am very happy to present the new home for the original 48 episodes of the Some Guy From New York podcast! Here’s to a whole new audience rediscovering Jason’s excellent work. Who knows, maybe he’ll be motivated to come out of retirement?
(Still gotta do something about that Yankees hat, though….)
