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.

Scott Wasserman is Hamilton's Ableton Programmer, and one of the nicest and most fun people around. Scott has been with Hamilton since the beginning and in this first episode he talks about how he helped create the sounds and effects not played by the (incredibly talented) orchestra. We talk the Vassar workshop, where you can (and can't!) still hear the original Broadway cast in current tour productions, and Lin-Manuel Miranda's amazing #HamiltonPR sitzprobe thread.

Greetings from Puerto Rico! Part Two! Well, not really, but Mike and I went to PR to see Hamilton and we had so much to say that I had to split our recording into two episodes. We tell you about our full #HamiltonPR experience from meeting listeners, to hanging with Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast backstage, and of course diving into the performance itself. We also tell you about the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, and the many reasons you should visit!
