One thought on “Episode 211: Shira Scheindlin

  1. “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”
    Spoken not by Cade but Dick, the butcher, who is a reprobate. Shakespeare did not have contempt for lawyers so much as anyone outside of the aristocracy. The Cade rebellion is not treated kindly in Henry VI and is often cut from productions.
