Excellent

What a great podcast! The holiday episode with Julie Benko was really fun, and I'm adding the show to my player!

It deserves a Tony!

This show has it all. Wonderful music you know and love, for sure. But also lots of gems you might not have heard before. And, in between the music, an approachable but advanced sprinkling of knowledge from a leading profesor of musical theater at NYU. Highest recommendation!
