cor·​y·​ban·​tic | ˌkȯr-ē-ˈban-tik adj. wild, frenzied. On this podcast, I share thoughts on a variety of my interests: Shakespeare, the Bible, Sherlock Holmes, the English language, and more…

The Corybantic Podacast: Episode 6

Wherein I describe the many rabbit holes I've been down over the past week: my experiences with Esperanto, Ido, and other conlangs.

The Corybantic Podacast: Episode 6

Wherein I talk about my love for thesauri, particularly Roget's, and discuss how a thesaurus works.

You can read more about Peter Mark Roget at this article from the Merriam-Webster site.

If you want to see an excellent example of Roget's International Thesaurus, that's a lot closer to Roget's original layout than those dictionary-style thesauri one often sees, check out this free copy of Roget's International Thesaurus, 3rd ed.

Wherein I discuss some of my favorite (and not-so favorite) versions of my favorite Shakespeare play...Hamlet!

The theme music is an electronic version of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Allegro, which is a public domain recording available at freepd.com.

Wherein I discuss various editions of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare, both print and digital.

This is really more of a first episode, after the brief Introduction I posted earlier. So I'm calling this Episode 1a. (It's my podcast, I'll call it what I want to call it, I guess...)

In the episode, I mention the Folger Library's free Shakespeare audiobooks: here's a link to that.

Thanks for listening!

Wherein I re-vamp the Bible Bookshelf into the NEW Corybantic Podcast!

Once again, I try my hand at the Bible Bookshelf podcast. Sorry if this one isn't all that polished. I was trying a new Sound Editor on Windows, with mixed results. Enjoy!

After a long time of not doing any more podcasts, I suddenly was inspired to give it another try! On this episode, I talk about some virtual Bibles: Bible software and online Bible search engines. Give it a listen, and feel free to comment with your feedback!
