Episode 13: Slings & Arrows, Season 1 (Hamlet)

Aven & Mark introduce John to their favourite tv show about Shakespeare, Slings & Arrows, with Season 1 (2003). They discuss how it casts new light on Hamlet as a play and as a cultural force, its commentary on art and commercialism, Canada/US relations, and our connections to death--all while revelling in its deliciously funny dialogue.

Also check out John's writing about Shakespeare and about etymology.
