    I usually get very excited about this show. Not today. If the host does not like the broadway show i think he should at least do a bit research before talking about it. It was obvious he did not do research or know the show but he certainly had his biases. The guest also didn’t seem to know the show thoroughly but had memories . I gotta say I usually enjoy the show, especially when the conversations deal with the actual show and not the many tangents.

  • Feels like Film Crush for musicals! I found this because Elliot Kalan was a guest, and then I picked 30 more episodes over the past 5 years. Great audio drops! Pleasant and enjoyable.

  • My favorite podcast for a long time...but...

    ...I'm not really sure what's happening. More and more It seems like discussion of the cast recording is less and less the point and the focus is on what the guest is up to. Or, as in the case of the most recent episode, it was a discussion of the film soundtrack instead of the cast recording. Which...okay, but there's literally a secondary podcast you host for that? Maybe I'm the only one this bothers. Oh well.
