Hasan Minhaj: Hamilton’s Tupac Factor
The Room Where It’s Happening: A Hamilton Fan Podcast #13November 7, 2016
Comedian and actor Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show, Homecoming King) is here to remind you that America itself is an immigrant story. He and Travon discuss why dissonance is patriotic and ponder how to make Hamilton tickets more accessible to black and brown families. Plus, they dissect why the Hamilton-Burr feud shares similarities with the beef between Jay Z and Nas.
