TITQ #33 - Sophia Carlin & Roxy Arecco - With Apologies to The Penguin

 Roxy arecco & Sophia Carlin

Roxy arecco & Sophia Carlin

If David Andrew Laws is your favorite podcast co-host, we've got bad news (and you've got weird taste). But if you prefer a head-to-head bout between two of the hardest-working ladies in Shakespeare, look no further. The world is an oyster, this podcast is the pearl, and Sophia Carlin & Roxy Arecco are both armed and ready to open this terrible metaphor. Tune in and enjoy!

TITQ #32 - Sophia Carlin - A James Bond Podcast

A few disclaimers:

1. We recorded this episode in a big echo-y room but we'll be back to our regular set up next week.
2. David has literally never seen a James Bond movie but we're working on it.
3. Sophia Carlin is a delight (full stop).

That's really all you need to know as you dive headfirst into this fantastically filial episode! Enjoy!

TITQ #30 - Julia Sismour - Hymen All the Timin'

We can't believe we actually found someone to take on this episode! But welcome to the canon, Two Noble Kinsmen. And welcome to the podcast, Julia Sismour!

Julia and David go head-to-head, toe-to-toe, and funny-bone-to-your-ear in this fraternal episode. Includes an all-new segment: Shakespeare or Fletcher!

TITQ #29 - Brian Gillespie - War of the Sposes

Brian's back! Back again! Brian's back! Tell a friend. Or two! Or ten!

Or, more appropriately, eight. Because this one's aaaaaaall about Henry the VIIIth. Included within this episode are exactly eight facts, eight jokes, and eight clues that will lead you to Shakespeare's hidden treasure. So listen in and enjoy!

TITQ #28 - Emily Gallagher - If It Ain't Broke, Don't Find A New Joke

This is our twenty-eighth episode of That Is The Question, which means you could start back at the beginning and listen to an episode a month! (If you were listening in February, that is...) But don't do that. Instead, feast your ears on the most magnificent episode to date; this one!

Emily Gallagher pulls a Charles the Wrestler on David this episode, but his knowledge of the most celebrated Canadian alt rock band of the mid-90s might just save the day!

TITQ #27 - Regina Russell - What Is The Bible?

You're going to treasure (for treasure) this episode of That Is The Question. It was a real pleasure (for pleasure) to record. See if you can guess from our very subtle hints what play we talked about with Regina Renee Russell!

Listen here and enjoy!

TITQ - Episode 26 - Mike Luca - There Once Was a Podcast So Awesome

There once was a podcast on Shakespeare
That you can listen to with no fear.
This isn't a sonnet
But still, come get on it,
The topic by now should be so clear! 

That's right, we talk about all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets this week, and Mike Luca takes and/or gets taken to school! Enjoy!

TITQ - Episode 25 - Anne Whitaker - Seven Miles of Wool

Och aye!! It’s a super-spooky super-Scottish episode today, though somehow we completely avoid any actual Scottish dialects! We talk morality, geography, and funny hats with Anne Whitaker, and the point value at the end of this episode is downright spooooooooky! Listen in and enjoy!

TITQ - Episode 24 - Drew Hutcheson - Six Characters in Search of an Induction

The good news on this episode is that James sounds great! (And, as he says, that's all that matters)

David and guest Drew Hutchison…might need to sit a little closer to the mic next time. But it’s still a delightful episode full of lots of learning, so tune in and enjoy!

P.S. Apologies to Antii Arne and Stith Thompson, who are, in fact, two separate people.

TITQ - Episode 23 - Samantha Morrice - The Delightful Saga of Dorkus and Mopsy

Your ears aren't deceiving you; that's not James at the helm! We've been holding onto this one for a while (hence the change in audio), but you've earned it! See what happens when the host gets put to the test: this week's guests are David Andrew Laws and James Rightmyer Jr. as Samantha Morrice pits them against each other in a no-holds-bard battle to the death!

(Well, not the death, but to see who's a more embarrassing failure, for sure) Enjoy!

TITQ - Episode 22 - Mary Candler - LIVE from Professor Thom's

Have a little peak behind the curtain with us. Usually we record That Is The Question in David's apartment. James sits comfortably on his host throne, David lounges unprofessionally on the couch, and our guest is waited on hand, foot, and otherwise. It is a bastion of seclusion and comfort. But not this week! 

This week, we went roughin' it! We filled the halls of Professor Thom's (which is cozy in its own right, don't get us wrong) with as many Shakespeare trivia nerds as we could find, and the result was amazing! Special thanks to Hedgepig Theatre Ensemble for hosting, to Mary Candler for competing, and to all of YOU whether you were listening then, now, or both! Enjoy.

TITQ - Episode 21 - Megan Greener - Cymballoon

TITQ - Episode 18 - Rob Sniffin - Joke's On You, This One's Pericles

Spoiler alert! Pericles is a play by Shakespeare! Kind of.... Double spoiler!! It's *not* one of his most popular!! Will that stop Rob Sniffin from earning his place at the top of the podcast totem pole? Or will David suddenly succumb to some sort of Rain Main-esque retention? Anything can happen, so listen in and find out!
