Podcast maven Tracy Clayton (Another Round) is here and she’s ready to confess the number of times she’s gone to see Hamilton (both the musical and that one statue in Boston).

She tells us why her current favorite Hamilton song is “Non-Stop” and what it was like to interview Lin-Manuel Miranda. We want to hear you and yours belt out your favorite songs from the show. Warm up your vocal cords and give us a call: 937-9MYSHOT.
