Shakespeare’s Globe is launching a podcast that will take listeners behind the scenes and into rehearsal rooms.

Hosted by artistic director Michelle Terry, producer Imogen Greenberg and Farah Karim-Cooper, head of higher education and research, the episodes of Such Stuff will be released fortnightly.

The Globe said the podcasts would cover the themes of the venue’s work, and will ask questions about “programming, gender, race, social justice and their relationship to Shakespeare”.

The first episode is called The Missing Women, and goes behind the scenes of new play Emilia, by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm. It looks at why it is important to reclaim “untold stories of women from history”.

Other episodes will cover topics such as refugees and gender swapping in theatre.
