• Summary

  • A Shakespeare scholar talks to actual clever people about what normal domestic activity was like during the life and times of William Shakespeare. Partly informative, and mostly fun, the series aims to shed some light on the lesser discussed aspects of early modern life in England, namely poo, pants, passion and other such ponderings. Written, hosted, edited and produced by Anjna Chouhan.
