The time has finally come for the Frotcast to discuss Hamilton, a play Matt has seen and loved and thus far failed to convince me (Vince) to watch. UNTIL NOW! Is Hamilton the defining theatrical achievement of our times or some cheesy overhyped schoolhouse rock bullshit?
To join us in this discussion, we have Francesca Fiorentini, host of the Bitchuation Room, founder of Newsbroke on AJ+, and frequent guest on The Young Turks, who once, along with Matt forced me to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack on our way to the Russian River in the back of Matt’s Honda Civic; and Andrew Law, aka IllyBocean on Twitter and cohost of the BoontaVista Podcast, who, like me, was a skeptical Hamilton virgin, BUT has the added hurdle of being an Australian who wasn’t forcefed the Founding Fathers and Constitutional Convention in school.
It’s a spirited discussion, and naturally, Matt turns it into many analingus puns for his Hamilton parody about eating butt, Lumilton.
Sample discussion of geopolitics:
MATT: Wait, Australia has a queen?
ANDREW: The Queen of England, baby. We’re still subjects of the commonwealth.
MATT: Wow, that’s weird!
