Fauxworthy Podcast Episode 26: Throwing Away Our Shot

 

We did something out of the ordinary this week. Instead of talking about television, we talked about musical theater.

That’s right! With the Tony Awards coming up this Sunday night, Bryan and Taylor decided to dive into the phenomenon that is 16-time nominee “Hamilton” and rank all 46 songs on the nearly 150-minute long soundtrack. Taylor ran through his list from the bottom (46) to No. 12, where Bryan joined in for each man to reveal his top 12.

Lots of fun and random bursts into song on this one. What will be number one? Listen to find out!

Timeline:

00:00 Intro

04:35 Taylor’s No. 46-10

15:00 Bryan and Taylor Top 10

23:40 Things Happening Soon
