About The Hamilcast

In this American podcast about an American musical about a bastard orphan, we (your hosts Gillian Pensavalle and Bianca Soto) talk all things Hamilton including how it brings people together, how we find Ham references in everyday life, and the general brilliance of the show. We'll also have special guests along the way ranging from people actually involved in the production, to the minds behind some of the best social media accounts inspired by the show, to teachers who use the music to get their students excited about history, and everything in between. Notable guests include Hamilton cast members Javier Munoz, Andrew Chappelle, Seth Stewart, Michael Luwoye, Lexi Lawson, Jevon McFerrin, J. Quinton Johnson, Nik Walker, Karla Garcia, Anthony Lee Medina, and Eliza Ohman; Hamilton Ableton programmer Scott Wasserman; Broadway actors Anthony Rapp and Ilana Levine; Ham4Ham videographer Howard Sherman; Nicole Scholet from the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society; President and CEO of Graham Windham Jess Dannhauser; and the ladies of @HamiltonsSquad, @TheHamWing, and @HamiltonAsDogs.

The discussion of Ron Chernow's "Alexander Hamilton" starts in episode three. If you're interested, please feel free to read along with us; we'll be going chapter-by-chapter. But there's no pressure! There's plenty to talk about and we're not treating this like a super serious history class. We're just here to have fun with people who also love Hamilton.

When we started this podcast, only Bianca had seen Hamilton. Thanks to an incredibly generous listener, Gillian and Bianca were lucky enough to see Hamilton together the same day Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer Prize. How lucky we are to be alive right now FOR REAL.

If you have any great Ham stories or funny references you've come across, please let us know! We love hearing about things like that. Email us at TheHamilcast [at] gmail [dot] com, or find us on social media @TheHamilcast.

We have the honor to be your obedient servants,
G.Pen & B.So
