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's third episode opens with an emotional story involving Freestyle Love Supreme's own Arthur Lewis (Arthur the Geniuses), a significant loss, and how the crew grieved together live on stage during FLS' most recent run. After a pizza break, Anthony answers more questions from the Patreon Peeps including how his daughters reacted to seeing him at FLS (and how more and more kids are coming to the shows), how much he loves being in a classroom, and a new way to sing "Your Obedient Servant."

Anthony Veneziale (aka Two Touch) kicks off his second episode with his Hamilton experience, from Lin-Manuel Miranda calling him as Hercules Mulligan to seeing it in previews at The Public. We also have a therapy session about why freestyling seems so terrifying and why people (especially women) have been hardwired to think that way. Plus, Anthony explains how Freestyle Love Supreme stays positive in this political climate. And then Mike comes home and we order pizza! Yeah, there's a lot going on in this one.
