Join Isaac Butler, the host of Slate’s new Lend Me Your Ears podcast, Michael Sexton, the Director of the Public Shakespeare Initiative, and a panel of experts and artists for an exploration of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, the story of what happens when an ill-informed, easily manipulated populace elects the wrong man – and then un-elects him. Lend Me Your Ears is a new podcast from Slate that examines the ways Shakespeare’s plays can inform, illuminate, and interrogate our current political moment. The evening will also feature readings from Coriolanus.
