Nicole Erb - Shakespeare's Problematic Plays

Nicole Erb (actor, comedy writer, you know the drill) talks to us about Shakespeare's "problematic plays." This includes the "problem plays" (neither comedies nor tragedies) but also any play which either drops plot threads, or makes enemies suddenly decide to get married, or has tragic scenes in the middle of otherwise happy acts, ET CETERA! Nicole likes the awkwardness they creates, but many directors try to hide them. We also get into Shakespeare in general. Spoiler: he's popular. In addition: Anthony talks about a podcast he is obsessed with called "In The Dark." Then Will discusses Betteridges' Law of Headlines, which says headlines that are questions are always answered with "no."
