Ep. 95: Hamilton feat. Bradley Rettler

Nate and Ryan welcome Ryan’s long-time friend Dr. Bradley Rettler to discuss Hamilton, the 2015 Broadway hit that made its film debut on Disney+ in 2020. Listen in as they discuss what there is to love about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s complex musical, what is different about watching the show 6 years later, and what the show’s legacy might be.

So how big a Hamilton fan are you? Has watching or listening to Hamilton changed since its early days? What’s your favorite song? Are you going to throw away your shot? Let us know!
