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.

Patrick Vassel, Hamilton's Associate & Supervising Director, is back this week to talk moving from The Public to Broadway, the joy and misery of tech, and how The Cabinet (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, Alex Lacamoire, and Andy Blankenbuehler) established and continue to keep an extraordinary amount of trust among eeryone working on the show. Oh! And PDV raps cut lyrics from two songs, with explicit permission from Lin-Manuel, who texted us during the recording.

Hello! A message from the King! (Get it? Because Rory O'Malley has been in both The Book of Mormon *and* Hamilton). Join me as I hang out with the kind, funny, warm, and super talented Rory O'Malley! Rory talks about what it's like to be a brand new father, he tells me his Hamilton story and his experience playing King George III on Broadway and the first national tour, and we bond over podcasting. Plus, we talk The Book of Mormon including sage advice about King George III from Andrew Rannells, what KGIII and Elder McKinley have in common, and Rory does one hell of a Josh Gad impression.
