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.

YOUNG NEES IS ON THE TRACK AND IT'S ABOUT TO BE CRAZY! This is part one of my chat with Aneesa Folds (Freestyle Love Supreme) and it was an absolute blast.

I absolutely loved my chat with Kaila Mullady (Kaiser Roze in Freestyle Love Supreme), she is just unreal. We talk about Lightship, a program that Kaila and her boyfriend Mark created that uses beatboxing as a tool for speech therapy, plus Kaila gives Mike (you know Mike) and I a beatboxing lesson!! Enjoy!

Kaila Mullady (Kaiser Roze in Freestyle Love Supreme) is seriously out of this world. This week we talk about how she broke onto the beatbox scene, her audition process for Freestyle Love Supreme, and what it was like to get the call (from Shockwave!) that she would be making her broadway debut!

In part three of my epic trilogy with Mike Anthony (Bar Manager at the Richard Rodgers) and Mike (you know Mike) we discuss how butterflies have become a very specific symbol in M.Ant's life, the horribleness that is people selling fake tickets to Hamilton, and how Hamilton invokes an emotional reaction in people unlike any other show he's ever seen. And of course so much more! PART THREE LEZ GO!
