    Um, is the world ending around 57:05? That sound might scare children. Fun podcast before the apocalypse!

    First musical seen: Once Upon A Mattress (Springfield IL Muni Opera)
    First musical in: Bye Bye Birdie (Only, as well. I can’t sing.)

    We just discovered the audio nightmare at 57:05 ourselves—working on fix! Sorry for the ear blast!
    Update: It’s fixed!

    Ok, sound fixed! If you downloaded the track pre-1:00pm or so today, please scrap it and do so again.

    geez, that audio thing scared the crap out of me, glad to see it’s fixed.

    I know you guys only talked about it very briefly but I was really confused by all the tom hanks stuff on snl. Possibly if he had made a cameo first and THEN showed up in a later sketch I would understand but for him to just come in, in character really threw me off (at least that’s the way it was played on hulu, I know there’s a lot of editing between Saturday and whenever it gets posted).

    The first musical I saw live was either West Side Story or Singing in the Rain. I have yet to make my debut in a musical…

    The first musical I saw in person was The Phantom of the Opera at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA. I think I was 11 or so. It was fantastic.

    I was never in musical per se, but I had two near brushes:

    1. When I was a freshman in high school, my best friend was cast as Sandy in Grease. I helped her run lines and songs, so by the end I knew as much as any of the actors. I even went to the cast party.

    2. In college, I was in the Vagina Monologues. I wrote and sang a short song about the clitoris.

    Hey guys,
    I’m really glad for your success. So,worthy. I got turned on to you (erm… the podcast) about three weeks ago…listened to everyone of em,have been familiar with all your guests and It shows how much effort you put in to your questions (research wise). If I were to wish for one guest,it would be Laura Kightlinger. Also, you should let us know what you guys have in the works. If I was back in L.A., I would book both of you for everything.
    Much Respect,
    Michael M

    The cultural phenomenon of reality television makes me wish I’d committed suicide in high school.

    This is the first time I’ve listened to your podcast. How could I have missed this one? Vanessa and Casey were making me laugh so hard. Clearly they are sisterfriends. I just totally loaded up my iphone with back eppys until it was actually too full to add any more. You guys kinda rock. I’m all over this.
