Hosted By: James Keys & Tunde Ogunlana

Alexander Hamilton has a story we can all relate to, and James Keys, Tunde Ogulana, and special guest Rick Ellsley take a look at the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, specifically getting into the things that stood out in Hamilton’s story and the musical production (02:43) and whether the historical story was effectively told through musical form (12:07).  The birth of extreme partisanship and the role partisanship and compromise played in early stages of our government (30:11), presentation of women’s stories (46:11), and the A.Ham v. A.Burr debate (51:12) are all also discussed.
