Friday, April 26th is our Shakespeare's Baptismal Day show -- because that is the only real record we have, and we are careful historians here, despite the slightly insouciant attitude!

We'll do a quick roundup of Shakespeare in the news -- there's been quite a bit, actually!

 Our special guest this week is author Francine Segan who's written 6 historical cookbooks, including Shakespeare's Kitchen, a gorgeously illustrated, delightfully entertaining compendium of recipes that are as delicious as they are fascinating! She has had to modify the ingredients here & there; we'll discuss why -- as well as what some of the differences are between food in the 16th c. and now.

(Upcoming: Hollywood Golden Age star Jane Withers; Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking author Susan Cain)

Producer: Robert Gonyo

& John Gaines as Rod Serling

P.S. The 4th image is "pear" meatballs in broth & they are delicious!
