Totally unbiased review!
A great podcast about a great musical called Great Frontier!
A great look “backstage"
These fellas know what they’re talking about. Not only do they love musicals (especially Patrick), they wrote and produced one. Plus, since they’re great friends in real life they have a fantastic rapport on the mic. Give it a listen, you’ll love it!
Patrick and Kevin work well together. Fascinating topic, good hosts.
