Othersode #43: Phantom of the Suburbs / Hamilton!

Join us *in the room where it happens* to talk about "Hamilton," the 2015 hit Broadway musical that recently became available to stream on Disney+! We talk about our favorite characters and moments, how women are represented, deviations from history (but in a not-annoying way!), other musicals that have had crossover cultural success, and how "Hamilton" represents our particular politico-historical moment. Also—the #BookSquadBlog is back! Check it out for brand new content! For our next #Bookpisode on August 10, read "Magic for Liars" by Sarah Gailey. Then, check out the new film adaptation of "The Secret Garden" for our next #Othersode on August 24. Send your thoughts on "Hamilton" or any other topic we’ve covered to thesquad@booksquadgoal.com or DM us on social media @booksquadgoals!
