After taking 8 months off from podcasting, your friendly, Neighbourhood Shakespeare is back with a conversation with the Ladies Morgan, Catalina and Evangeline of Chaste Treasure!

Chaste Treasure's trio of upperclass ladies bring a unique, soulful sound to sassy songs and modern parodies alike. Truly a "treasure" but questionably "chaste" their audience interaction is comical while their tight harmonies mean business.  From frolicking drinking songs to sea shanties and original folk tunes, Chaste Treasure has something for every music lover.
