Episode 15: Othello 101

Two white girls trying to discuss the racial quagmire that is Othello...what could go wrong? You'll just have to listen to find out (and we sincerely hope the answer is "nothing" because we try really hard to be conscientious about our words, you guys). The Rhetorical Device of the Week is epanorthosis; the Burbage Break is all about the early modern definition of "moor" and how early modern actors conveyed and interpreted "blackness" on stage. In our Tips and Tidbits we discuss the idea of "color conscious casting" and why it is NEVER ok to whitewash the title character; and in our ShakesBubble Gossip we return to the twitter storm that started it all, and the awesomeness that is a Noh adaptation of Othello.

Oof.

It's a lot, y'all.

Buckle up.
