A podcast for anyone studying Shakespeare for any reason: students, actors, directors (or anyone who enjoys some harmless profanity). We have the best ways to find the fun in Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello and more!
Listen up, fools! Are you studying Hamlet in class and it’s not making any f*cking sense? Trying to read Macbeth or Othello before seeing a show and getting a headache with all those weird words? Don’t get FOMO just because you have no idea what’s supposed to be so f*cking funny about this Shakespeare shit. We will expose all the smut (pun intended!) and unpack all those mysterious words (that mostly mean raunchy stuff) so that you can enjoy that hellish Shakespeare unit and maybe even write a killer essay. Stay tuned! New episode every week.

Wild Women Shakespeare Podcasters Offer Quick Insights and Essay Ideas in Every Episode
We are Diana and Erin, two friends who met over a cuppa Shakespeare and who’ve been delving into all of his naughty bits together for years. Poor guy.
We finally decided to share our discoveries in a podcast. It’s for those of you who are either pissed or worried about having to study Shakespeare in school (and a few more of you who just want to chuckle along). We’re hoping to make it easier by making it funny, raunchy, surprising and basically just cutting to the good stuff – the sex. We’re going to delve into all the shit your teachers really can’t tell you – because they have contracts and stuff and they have to behave. We don’t, and we think the nasty bits are the stuff that make Shakespeare fun!
Each week we will tackle some text, debunk some BS, explain some weird words and have some laughs. As you follow along we hope that soon you will be laughing out loud in class when you get used to spotting the avalanche of dick jokes that are on every page.
