Customer ReviewsSee All
Listening to the Podcast always brings me joy. I especially like listening to it while I am driving in L.A. traffic because it makes the time fly.
As a non church goer this podcast is my Sunday church service TBH. Jeff does a wonderful job discussing the cultural impacts of musical theatre while also dissecting the plot, score, and process of a weekly selected musical with a selected guest. This podcast is a college level class. Bravo!
Very fun analysis of favorites of stage
I’ve been listening to Musicals Taught Me Everything I Know (also another amazing musical themed podcast) before starting our podcast Talking Musical History. I just listened to the Rent episode before we record our episode, for research. It’s a wonderful discussion of fan favorites of the stage and screen. This is made musical theatre nerds and for musical theatre nerds, as well as those finding out all about different shows. Definitely a must listen to all that are looking for an in depth analysis and discussion of various musicals that have come into our world.
