Episode 039 - “The Oscars, But With Diversity”
Episode Length: 42:22
It's our thirty-ninth episode! In this episode, we're returning to our love of the theatre and talking all about this weekend’s Tony Awards. First, we share our obsessions: while Kelly’s is trashy summer television, Christina’s is all about getting in superhero shape. In our main discussion, we get into the Tony Awards by first praising its host James Corden with his amazing opening numbers, his ability to entertain everybody, and of course, more karaoke than we ever expected. Of course, we can’t talk about the Tonys without talking about all the amazing performances this year and we go through each one, discussing what we liked or didn’t like and everything in between. Then there’s the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton. Taking home 11 awards that night, Hamilton was by far the star of the show and Lin-Manuel Miranda must be on Cloud 9 right about now. Speaking of the mastermind behind Hamilton, he’s also our Episode MVP along with host James Corden. We also talk about our mutual Ship Moment involving Mr. Aaron Tveit because we can’t talk about Broadway without giving him a shout out. As always, we remind you of the outlets where you can follow us, tweet us, download our episodes, or contact us. Kelly gets excited about Episode 40 promising a full-length Harry Potter episode to celebrate another milestone episode and Christina begrudgingly agrees. And this is why we’re friends. Make sure you tune in for all the magic in store for the next episode!
