Today, on my final podcast before 2018 (unless I do another one), I discuss Lin-Manuel Miranda's lastest project, Hamildrops, which is songs inspired by, sometimes loosely, by his mega-hit musical Hamilton (perhaps you've heard of it). The first is a song called "Ben Franklin" by The Decemberists. Listen to it, it's good. Yes, Christmas came and went... but so did Festivus! There must be grievances, and said grievances must be aired. And I will air them! (One could argue that every podcast I do features the airing of grievances, but this time I can claim it's tied to a holiday. Sort of.) Also, Star Wars, because isn't it all about Star Wars? Plus something weird happens when I mention Jesus imagery in movies. Seriously, it was really weird. You have to listen to find out what I'm talking about. Happy New Year everyone!
