You could highlight any of the scenes -- but I might suggest Cleopatra's death scene or Desdemona's
Death Scene (Othello Act 5. scene 2). Nothing like a good death scene!

Good luck and thanks again for what you're doing. Let me know if there's any way I could be of help.
Very good suggestion John! Agreed- nothing like a good death scene ;)

Also, I think one of the greatest moments in any of the plays is the one in King Lear when he wakes up and has his first conversation with Cordelia since their estrangement. It's in Act 4 scene 7, the part that begins with "How does my royal lord, how fares your majesty" and ends with Cordelia's moving line "No cause, no cause."
I am a huge fan of Winter's Tale, Ray, and so we can definitely get some of that into it! :D And I do also love that scene in Lear!

I'm sure this shows how little I pay attention to Librivox podcasts...but where will the finished one be for listening to? :)

Cori didn't know she was supposed to publish it. She lent her uploader folder, but no one asked her to MC. She sent out a call for help, and I answered the call. :)

I think I've done everything correctly. It's on the home page now. Here's a link to the blog post:
https://librivox.org/2016/04/24/librivox-community-podcast-no-141/

I don't recall if I'm supposed to put it anywhere else.

OK, I edited the top post with the audio link and the show notes. I've moved this to News & Discussion. I think that's all I need to do. :)

Sorry I didn't know that :oops: - I looked on the full podcast planning thread and hers was the only name that came up

Thank you Tricia! You're the best! :mrgreen:

And thank you everyone for making this podcast possible! It's been a pleasure!

Nice podcast! :thumbs: This is the first one I've ever listened to, so I can't compare it with any others but I really liked it! So interesting to hear people talking about their experiences with Shakespeare!

Also, I never realised Esther ben Simonides and Adele de Pignerolles were sisters! So I learned something as well! :mrgreen:

What???? I did notice their voices sounded quite similar. :hmm: :wink:
Interesting podcast, by the way. I think it's cool to hear these people talk without reading from a script, like I'm used to!

I listened to it last night while making tea. It sounds great! Excellent work.
So little space, so much to say.

I never seem to find out about these until they are posted. I'd like to contribute. Is there a thread I should be subscribed to?

There doesn't seem to be. Maybe we'd get more response if we had a "Podcast PLanning Thread" stickied for people with ideas , and they post a new thread when they are ready to go - and post a " I've posted the podcast 999 thread , please contribute"

I'll wait a day to give people a chance to agree/disagree and then do it
