Lend Me Your Ears | A Podcast About Shakespeare and Modern Politics

Slate Plus members get a bonus episode of Lend Me Your Ears every month. Here, we offer a preview of the Julius Caesar extra, in which Isaac Butler, The Handmaid's Tale screenwriter Dorothy Fortenberry, and Vanity Fair film critic K. Austin Collins chat about the themes of elitism and the power of persuasion in the play.
