Fully obsessed

Everytime I put on this podcast, I learn one to two million things. I consider it an invaluable resource for anyone who is looking for an earnest, funny, sometimes irreverent musical theatre podcast. Fully obsessed.

Dishy and deep!

This show will take you deep into the best of broadway with delicious backstage/offstage anecdotes and insight. With an impressive command of musical theater history, this show will make you smarter and funnier at your next cocktail party. In fact, the show itself has the best feeling of sitting with Ben and Daniel having a dishy, intimate conversation at their Fire Island share. These two charmers will reignite your passion for musicals and, of course, Patti LuPone.
