Staging the Archive - the APGRD podcast

The APGRD's Staging the Archive podcast was set up to sit alongside our blog of the same name. In each episode, we invite two Classicists and/or theatre practitioners to choose an archive item to kick start a wider conversation. Each podcast episode has an accompanying blog post, going into further detail and enabling you to explore the archive items yourself and check citations. 

**Information on how to subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or other podcatchers will be available shortly**
