What happens if someone you love doesn’t love Hamilton the way you do? How do you prep a non-Hamilperson for seeing the show? What if they - GASP - don’t like it? We dive into all of this on our very first edition of #AskTheHamilcast.
For the first time on the podcast, we proudly welcome one of the many wonderful #Hamilkids of the world: the insightful and funny 10-year-old Caleb Fumusa. At first Caleb was going to talk to us about his love of the cast recording but as luck would have it he ended up seeing “Hamilton” the night before we recorded this episode.
This week we welcome the lovely Ilana Levine (You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, Seinfeld) and the Hamilton references are actually non-stop. Ilana tells us all about her Little Known Facts podcast and we have ourselves a bit of a love fest.
Carrie-Rachel Dean tells Gillian, Bianca, and Ashley all about growing up doing Revolutionary War reenactments and gushes (to put it lightly) over seeing Javier Munoz in Hamilton.
We launched this podcast on January 30th, 2016 and this week we thought we’d have a little half birthday celebration. Ashley Graffeo is back again and Carrie-Rachel Dean joins us for the first time as we do some reminiscing and read some of your incredible emails. Thank you so much for listening and being so interactive with us. We love doing this podcast and there’s a lot more to come. We can’t wait to see - ahem - what comes next.
