The Hamilcast: A Hamilton Podcast

In this podcast about all things Hamilton, Hamilton-related, Hamilton-adjacent, or anything else in the Miranda universe, I (your host Gillian Pensavalle) talk to guests (and my sometimes co-host/all times husband Michael Paul Smith) about such things as: how Hamilton brings people together, how we find Ham references in everyday life, and the general brilliance of the show. I'm proud to say that we've spoken to almost everyone from the original creative team (aka "The Cabinet") including the man himself: Lin-Manuel Miranda. In addition, I've had cast members from every company, crew members, musicians, creatives, and the hard working people that keep the production alive. I've also had to pleasure of speaking to experts on the show and its history, some of my superfan friends of note, celebrity Ham enthusiasts, and everything in between.  When I started this podcast in January of 2016, I could not have imagined the incredible community that has grown around the show and the amazing experiences that have come my way. Thank you to everyone who has listened, appeared on the show, contributed, or reached out in any way. This podcast is for you and I absolutely love making it. If you have any great Ham stories or funny references that you've come across, let me know! Email TheHamilcast [at] gmail [dot] com, or contact me on social media @TheHamilcast. I also have a Patreon that has given rise to the loveliest corner of the internet, ever.

Anthony Veneziale (Freestyle Love Supreme's Two Touch) is here and oh mannnnnn did we have one hell of a conversation. In his first episode Anthony talks about the FLS origin story (including freestyling with Tommy Kail on a road trip, getting Cool Points from Chris Jackson, and working on In The Heights), the brain science behind improvisation, and the importance of bringing women and people of color into the space he's created.

Wrapping up my hangout with Marc delaCruz we take questions from the Patreon Peeps, talk about the massive impact of Hamilton around the world, and the importance of telling your story.

In Marc’s second episode, Marc talks about how it still doesn’t feel real that he’s in Hamilton. He also tells me about the pressure and responsibility of playing Hamilton on Broadway and we have a long and meaningful conversation about the importance of representation. Marc opens up about growing up as an Asian-American and how the lack of representation played a large role in how he saw himself and others.

Marc de la Cruz recently made history as the first ever Asian American actor to play the role of Hamilton on Broadway. After falling in love with In the Heights and realizing what was possible on Broadway, he wondered if he’d ever get the chance to work with The Cabinet and SPOILER it’s happening!! In Marc’s first episode, we talk about his journey to Broadway and his experiences with High School Musical, If/Then, and Allegiance.

Mike Moise’s third episode covers a LOT of ground. In addition to lots more Hamilton goodness Mike talks about playing softball with the cast and crew of Hamilton in the Broadway Show League, why A Winter’s Ball into Helpless is one of the most satisfying (heyooo!) parts of the show to conduct, and we go INNNNNNNNN on Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story.
