Episode 76: Sherlock & Shakespeare


“Give me that man
That is not passion’s slave, and I will wear him
In my heart’s core, ay, in my heart of heart,
As I do thee…”

– Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 2

It’s so Holmes and Watson, Lyndsay could cry. In this episode Babes Maria, Lyndsay, Amy, and Tiffany take a look at the connections, overlap, and similarities of our favorite consulting detective and the many characters of Shakespeare’s creation.
