Episode #50! Can you believe it? Neither can I. It was a total thrill to talk to Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich. They are a songwriting pair who have written some incredible music together that has been enjoyed by theater-goers around the world! They just released the brand new album/soundtrack for ‘Junie B. Jones The Musical’. Everyone knows Junie B.! We talked songwriting and classic musicals. So unbelievably fun.
I also caught Josh the Lawyer just as he and his family were about to leave for a trip to the UK. Josh the Lawyer was going to help me do something different with the 50th episode, but we didn’t quite get to it. Don’t worry, it will happen eventually and this short conversation more than makes up for it.
