Coriolanus

Synopsis
This six-episode podcast miniseries looks at the political currents that influenced Shakespeare and how they apply to the world today. Hosted by Isaac Butler. In ancient Rome, the people rise up to demand better treatment, and an ambitious war hero is undone by his contempt for them. Populism, income inequality, and political authenticity collide in this thriller about the very same themes that shaped the 2016 election.
