How nice it is to have a platform to discuss anything that crosses our minds: this week, it’s Rent! Rent rent rent RENT RENT!!

On Sunday, America was treated to a “live” version of Rent, Jonathan Larson’s musical ode to the AIDS crisis, the East Village, and the wacky lives of artists who would rather sing songs about being bohemian than pay their rent. The soundtrack to the musical is full of bangers, and the musical’s “live” iteration on Fox was enough for Maddie and myself to call upon a fellow Renthead, writer and producer Bex Schwartz, to discuss.

DirtCast can be found on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play, NPR One and iHeart Media.
