Scurvy Companions is the brand new podcast from NoSweatShakespeare.
Hosted by our most enthusiastic contributor, Emily Jackoway, the podcast takes a fortnightly deep dive into all things Shakespeare.
Each episode we speak with an expert from a diverse selection of Shakespearean specialisms – performance, literary study, education, social media, and more – all while keeping the Bard’s works entertaining and accessible.
Listen to the latest episodes:
Episode 1: “Let old wrinkles come”: Celebrating Shakespeare’s Birthday
April 23rd, 2021, marks William Shakespeare’s 457th birthday, and, oddly enough, also the 405th anniversary of his death. To celebrate the life of the Bard, we’ll be discussing his life in Stratford-upon-Avon with NoSweatShakespeare’s founder and scholar, Ralph Goldswain.
Episode 2: “Brevity is the soul of wit”: Shakespeare for the TikTok teens
When you think of teenagers on TikTok, you probably think of complicated dance trends, new makeup looks, and “Okay, Boomer,” but… what about Shakespeare? Today we are joined by Shakespearean TikTok creator Annalyse Lapajenko, known as Al on TikTok.
Episode 3: “Note this before my (e)Notes”
Today we’ll be joined by literary professional Wesley Matlock. Wesley is the Project Manager for eNotes.com and an avid reader of whatever he can get his hands on. Wesley works with a team of literature enthusiasts who seek to make reading and teaching literature as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.
