S2:E19- Why You Should Watch Shakespeare Hannah finally uses her drama degree! In this episode, our mother-daughter duo discuss Shakespeare, its challenges, its beauty, and its relevance to us today.This week&apos;s installment of &quot;Splanchnics Math:&quot; According to Clare (3:50), Shakespeare was born in 1864 and died in 1616 at the age of 52.

I feel smarter already.Check out the episode show notes for links, corrections, and more!Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/splanchnics)
