Just thought I’d give a quick mention of the 2nd episode of Will@Warwick. Two reasons for this
1. Lenny Henry is in it
2. Our very own Bardathon blogger, Peter Kirwan, starts what I hope will be a regular column talking about Shakespearean matters.
Plus – don’t forget Ian Stewart on The History of Symmetry – http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/more/symmetry/

Following on from the History of Symmetry comes the other podcast project I have been working on – Will@Warwick. This is a podcast drawing on Shakespeare research from across the University, bringing in insights from other experts and hopefully providing interesting insights into the works.
The first episode revisits the interview with Jonathan Bate on the Complete Works and also features an interview by Dominic Dean with the American artist Greg Wyatt who is the sculptor responsible for the statues in the New Place garden in Stratford upon Avon.
Future episodes will feature:
Lenny Henry and Barrie Rutter on Othello
Producing Shakespeare for the German theatre
Peter Kirwan on bardathon
Self-help and Shakespeare
And much much more!

I don’t often highlight particular podcasts but I have to mention the latest one on Women and Hamlet.
I found this discussion particuarly interesting – I might have to buy the book!

A marvellous list of things to avoid when staging Shakespeare:
"I will never attempt to cast Bottom as a woman, in order to make the scenes between Bottom and Titania "hotter."
You read this and can imagine some pretty awful interpretations. Funny how the fairies always seem to get the bad draw…
I hope the Complete Works season at the RSC avoids these pitfalls.
