In depth interviews

I love this podcast. The in-depth interviews are very interesting. A different angle than most interviews. I hope there are more episodes coming soon 😀

Great Stephen Schwartz interview

One of my heroes too. Pippin and Godspell are the best, but love Wicked too. Glad he enjoys making them as much as we do seeing them.

Great Will Chase interview

Always liked him, and he seems really smart and funny (in show too). Good questions as well, back and forth entertaining. Will tune in again.
