Hi there, I’m Cassidy
I am an artist and William Shakespeare is one of my heroes. I believe that if you want to understand (and enjoy!) the plays of William Shakespeare, then understanding the history of the man who wrote them is essential. As an illustrator, podcast host, and filmmaker, I love to bring Shakespeare's history to life in new and creative ways so that you can learn something new about the bard.
Would you like to be a guest on the show or have an idea for a Shakespeare project? Use this form to contact me. I would love to hear from you!
Cook, play, and explore through 16-17th century England with downloadable history kits that work like science labs for Shakespeare history.
