Okay people, relax... Shakespeare wasn't crucified, of course!! He even survived many rounds of the Bubonic Plague!!
But... it is close to Christmas, and this is our last episode of 2022, so we decided to see how many times Christ, Jesus, or Jesus Christ is mentioned in the canon. We include some other variations, but you'd be amazed at how relatively few this is - and there's a reason for that!!! (You'll have to listen to find out!!)
And, as always, we close this episode with our Christmas tradition, A Visit From Saint Falstaff!! Thanks again to our dear friend and brilliant talent Keith Howard for lending us his incredible voice!!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happiest of New Years (even though we're pretty much atheists), you dicks and dickesses!!! We love you!!!!!

Also... we are going to the UK in late January 2023!!! Seeing a bunch of Shakespeare plays in London and Stratford Upon Avon, and visiting major Shakespeare attractions and maybe even (hopefully!) a private tour of the Globe!!
