In this podcast about all things Hamilton, I (your host Gillian Pensavalle) talk to my co-hosts and guests about all things Hamilton including how it brings people together, how we find Ham references in everyday life, and the general brilliance of the show: from cast, crew, and creatives involved in the production, to the minds behind some of the best social media accounts inspired by Hamilton, to teachers who use the music to get their students excited about history, and everything in between.

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 and provide detailed and reference-heavy outlines for each #Cherpter. But there's no pressure! There's plenty to talk about and this is not a super serious history class.

When I started this podcast in January of 2016, I could not have imagined the incredible community that has built 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 for you and I absolutely love making it.

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

I have the honor to be your obedient servant,

Love it!

This truly is the closest you can be to The Room Where it Happens without being in the actual Room Where it Happens. Each week, Gillian invites you into her living room to chat about Hamilton with those who teach it, star in it, and created it. Although the Lin-Tober episodes are AWESOME, it’s actually the ones where she chats with the actors on stage (at least one interview takes place literally on the stage) in Hamilton which really get to me. It’s so lovely to hear about where they are and where they started and how much this musical phenomenon means to them. This is the podcast that hooked me on podcasts and it’s, hands down, my favourite thing to listen to on my Monday commute.

Amazing

I live in rural Ontario and it’s hard to find people with... similar tastes. This podcast never fails to make me feel right at home and totally justified in my crazy obsession with all things Hamilton. Thanks G.Pen!

To refute your point

About boys not being as gushy (first ep), I am a boy gushing about Hamilton and seem to have found my place to do so — can’t wait to keep listening!!!
