Comedian Chris Gethard (Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People) was introduced to musical theatre when, as he puts it, he played Conrad Birdie as a "prepubescent, feminine eighth-grader." Flash forward two decades and Chris met Lin-Manuel Miranda in rehearsals for a This American Life live show. "This guy is genius, this is next level," he remembers thinking. He joins Travon to discuss seeing the original cast of Hamilton, what lyric he sings to make his wife laugh, and what he likes about "Dear Theodosia."
