    Ep. 165 - The King and I (1956) (w/ Matt Koplik)

    "Gear up, everyone - we're fighting dragons through song!" And that is what was written in the description the last time Matt was on the pod. Unfortunately, no dragons this time, but Matt showed up with the receipts that Jon just glanced at and has A LOT of great things to say about this movie that he made Jon want to see the stage version. (UPDATE: Jon still hasn't seen the stage version.)Matt's Instagram: @mattkoplikPodcast Socials -Email: butasongpod@gmail.comInstagram: @butasongpodTwitter: @butasongpodFacebook: @butasongpodNext episode: Tick, Tick, BOOM!

    Ep. 164 - Raggedy Ann and Andy: The Musical Adventure (w/ Jayson Kerr)

    Jon loses his mind once again whilst talking about one of Jayson's childhood movies, but this time it's for real. The two go off on so many tangents that one has to wonder: did they really talk about the movie? Also, nightmare dolls.Jayson’s Instagram: @jaysonlkerrJay & A Are Gay: https://www.liinks.co/jayanda_aregayPodcast Socials -Email: butasongpod@gmail.comInstagram: @butasongpodTwitter: @butasongpodFacebook: @butasongpodNext episode: The King and I (1956)!

    Ep. 163 - The Harvey Girls (w/ Lauren Gismondi)

    YEE-HAW! Lauren takes Jon back to the ol' West to talk about The Harvey Girls.

    Ep. 162 - 13: The Musical (w/ Allie Trimm)

    For today's episode Jon brought on Allie Trimm to talk about 13: The Musical. A lot of their discussion is Jon asking questions about the stage version to get a better sense as to what was changed, and Allie also sings a little during the episode. And they both are excited to see what this cast does in the future if they're delivering this level of performance at 13-ish (what is age?).Also, past Jon didn't know that future Jon would add "Opportunity" to his life's playlist.Allie's Instagram: @allietrimmPodcast Socials -Email: butasongpod@gmail.comInstagram: @butasongpodTwitter: @butasongpodFacebook: @butasongpodNext episode: The Harvey Girls!

    Ep. 161 - For Me and My Gal (w/ Sierra Rein)

    It's the end of the Gejujugee (translated: Judy Garland and Gene Kelly) trilogy, and Jon and Sierra celebrate it by buying war bonds in Judy and Gene's first movie together that's about vaudeville? Who knows. But, Jon brings up other shows and movies that may have been influenced by this movie, Sierra gives some acting advice and tips, and they both go on a journey talking about Gene Kelly (again).Sierra’s Instagram: @sierrareinMarquee Five: @marqueefivePodcast Socials -Email: butasongpod@gmail.comInstagram: @butasongpodTwitter: @butasongpodFacebook: @butasongpodNext episode: 13: The Musical!
