AARON BURR: How does a podcast, web thing,
Recap and chat on The West Wing,
Dropped on the internet by nostalgic pals
On a fake President—it makes no sense!
How do Josh and Hrish, on balance,
Manage to land two major Broadway talents?
The two gallants, Lin-Manuel and Tommy Kail,
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder
By being a lot smarter, by being self-starters
By watching Bartlet, who's based a bit on Jimmy Carter
Well, the word got around that they’re like, "Sorkin is insane, man"
So we sent a lot of emails till we got into their brainpan:
"Do a special episode, lend us some acclaim and
Let's talk about the napkin in the frame."
Roll the name, son:
West Wing Weekly Hamilton
This thing is West Wing Weekly Hamilton
There's a million things these guys have won
So just hit play, just hit play…

He explains how legacy plays a huge role in the lives of both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, and reveals what he believes will be the greatest legacy of the show. Lin-Manuel provides an update on his newborn son, Francisco, and news from his beloved Puerto Rico, which was devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria. Finally, Lin-Manuel opens up about how "creative loneliness" during his childhood in New York City helped shape his career.
