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.

Director of We Are Freestyle Love Supreme Andrew Fried takes us inside the 15 year journey that led to the film we see on Hulu today. Andrew tells how passion, friendship, persistence, and collaboration helped capture the essence of what this group has been putting on stages before and after Hamilton, and how they've stayed true throughout.

Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his first return to The Hamilcast to celebrate the release of the #Hamilfilm on Disney+. In part one, we reflect on what led us to this moment, Lin shares how he is feeling now that most of the world has access to Hamilton, he takes us on the journey of getting the film ready in time to release 15 months early, and we share a lot of laughs as Lin recalls some of his favorite moments on stage with the original Broadway cast.
