Euripides, Eumenides: A Theatre History Podcast

Euripides, Eumenides: A Theatre History Podcast

The Theatre History podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously. For each episode, Aaron Odom hosts a guest from the worldwide theatre community to talk about a bizarre, fascinating and humorous story from theatre history. One catch, the guest has no idea what they’ll be discussing. Plus, guests return to the program to share ”Theatre Horror Stories,” moments when theatre artists maintain that old adage: ”The show must go on.” From events an audience might never realize affected the show to the wheels falling off a production completely, these stories just make for great listening.
