Not a fan of Shakespeare but always afraid to admit it in public? Ira Glass has now opened the door for you to make that admission after tweeting over the summer that “Shakespeare sucks” and then essentially standing behind that statement on The Tonight Show last night.
Oh, and guess who tagged along with Ira Glass and is backstage? Molly Ringwald, which reminds me of the This American Life she was on that made me awkwardly tear up in the grocery store. In the podcast, her daughter watches Breakfast Club for the first time, with her mother, and that conversation that comes out of it will melt your goddamn heart.
