As a kid in an Oregonian library, I had a very rough introduction to Shakespeare. I was simply told I was going to study him on high school and that I would HAVE to like him. Ever since then, I’ve had a personal vendetta against this man who’s been dead for over 400 years!
I decided to find someone who could change my opinion and open my mind. I found Ben Crystal who is an expert in his field, albeit very humble and would prefer another title.
Come and listen to Ben’s very honest opinion and story. He’s one of those few people in the world with a perfect bass voice that commands your attention. He’s a deep thinker in his own right which made him nothing short of a joy to have him be on the podcast!
If it makes a difference, his father David Crystal is one of the English language’s most renown experts and was made an officer in the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to society.
In Today’s Episode:
- What Shakespeare Really Sounded Like
- Working with Your Parents
- Getting Modern People to like Dead People
- The world of Shakespearean Acting
- And much more!
Where to Find Ben
You can find Ben Crystal on Twitter (@bencrystal)
Or any one of these three websites where he exhibits his work!
Just as a heads up, I’m being guided into a new area of life. You may already know I spend a ton of time meeting with people and mentoring right here in my neighborhood in Queens NYC.
Tons of young people have NO idea what they want to do with their lives and it’s upsetting. That being said, because of the amount of time I spend elsewhere, I will be ending the podcast very soon. This is THE VERY last episode.
Thanks as always for listening. If you have any suggestions please shoot me an email via the contact form!
Until next time. Stay incredible!
