Episode 14: King Lear 101

This episode runs a little long (but so does King Lear's march toward death, so deal with it) because we devote a ton of time to figuring out why people connect with this particular tragedy. The Rhetorical Device of the Week is antimetabole; in the Burbage Break we attempt to issue a correction and end up making it works (sorry Mya) and discuss the phenomenon of "early modern facial blindness;" our Tips and Tidbits delve into the different versions of this text and why they matter; and we use our game, Choices Were Made, to gripe about (mostly) *terrible* Lear production choices. Is Edgar actually Jesus? Should Lear end up in a diaper? Listen and find out.
