Welcome to a special episode of Screen Tea Podcast! She did it: Jules won spouse of the year and gifted Lisha the chance to cover her favorite on-screen media of all time, 2020's film release of Thomas Kail and Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton! Grab a Sam Adams (spoiler alert: Lisha had a few during this recording) and listen as your hosts give their impressions of the hit Broadway musical, track-by-track! Lisha unlocks a level of fangirling you've never quite heard before, mostly over Aaron Burr (and with that, a new level of swearing: this is not a Disney-appropriate episode, folks!), Jules reveals how helpless she really is over Phillipa Soo/Eliza (and just how much she doesn't appreciate Lin-Manuel Miranda's cry-singing), and both of your podcasters have a lot to say about Chris Jackson's eyebrows. Come ring out the hellyear that was 2020 and ring in the new year with us, folks, and raise a glass!
