*UPDATE* - In this episode I mention that the original 'How Shakespeare's Skull Was Stolen' story was thought to have been written around 1794. This is incorrect. The original story was published in the Argosy in 1879 (then in book-form in 1884), but is based on events said to have happened in 1794. Very sorry for the mix-up and thank you for listening!
