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.

Gregory Treco is in the room where the podcast happens, friends! As the cover for Burr/Washington (and now Lafayette/Jefferson!) in Hamilton on Broadway, Gregory has a unique perspective on the roles and tells us why they are equally challenging and rewarding. We also get some fun details like how G.Wash's sword has a mind of its own, how one scene in The Room Where It Happens occurs three times (I KNOW), and the sage advice he got from his very dear friend Leslie Odom Jr. Oh, and Gregory and Gillian share a mutual love of Your Obedient Servant, so that's fun!

Happy Pride! We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with GLAAD to help spread pride, love, and awareness not just during Pride Month but everyday of the year! Friends of the show and past guests, Zeke Stokes (VP of Programming at GLAAD) and Carrie-Rachel Dean (Events Manager at GLAAD) drop knowledge about the Together Movement. Ya know those ampersand pins you saw everyone wearing at the Tony Awards? That was for the Together Campaign! We talk about the importance of telling your story from the Revolution to the Resistance. And of course we do a quick Tony recap because we're not monsters.

Hamilton's Gregory Haney is on the podcast this week and we are thrilled to have him! Gregory tells us what it's like playing some of the grimiest characters in the show: James Reynolds, Charles Lee, and George Eacker. We also talk to Gregory about his experience as La Cienega, Broadway's first transgender high school student in Bring It On, and he dishes about being in Grease Live! Not to mention the fact that he WON GLOBAL GUTS ON NICKELODEON WHEN HE WAS 13 YEARS OLD NBD.
