With this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we're excited to launch a new cultural series where we will explore the intersection of conflict and culture. You can find a new addition to the series on the fourth Tuesday of every month. In From Athens to Aleppo: Shakespeare and the Rules of War host Sara Owens and ICRC Legal Advisor Andrea Harrison sit down with Stephen Ryan, a lawyer who sits on the board of the Shakespeare Theatre Company and Major General (Ret) Dale Meyerrose, the first President-appointed, Senate confirmed chief information officer and information sharing executive for the U.S. Intelligence Community. Both served as panelists for the Shakespeare Theatre's recent discussion exploring in-depth examinations into the roles of lawyers and legal issues in Shakespeare plays and classical theatre pieces. Listen in to their interesting discussion!

In an effort to keep the conversation, Gregory R. Copley, President of the International Strategic Studies Association, wrote an essay about conflict in Shakespeare’s times. You can download the piece here.
