44. Hamilton and the American Revolution PART II – the one where we play lots of music and explain what it means

Please share this episode with friends who need Dad & Me & Hamilton the hip-hop musical in their life! The production company behind Hamilton the musical has given us the soundtrack and the full rights to use it – so you’ll hear some big numbers in this episode. You’ll also hear what you can learn about history from a hip-hop musical that treats its audience as the intelligent beings that our listeners are! There are some big plot spoilers in here – but no worse than if you simply listen to the musical’s soundtrack. On Disney+, Hamilton the musical is rated PG-13, but we spare you the worst of the language here. You will hear ‘damn’ and ‘hell’ amid the lyrics of the songs we include from the Hamilton musical. (Lin-Manual Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, also composed the music for Moana; the two sound rather different.)  We're now offering you more through Patreon - and if you're open to giving us a little support, this link shows how: https://www.patreon.com/dadandmelovehistory Please rate and review us wherever you get podcasts.
