Catie Lazarus talks with Emmy Award winner Chris Jackson, best known for originating the role of George Washington in Hamilton. He was also a lead in In the Heights and composed music for Sesame Street, penning the music for a Will.i.am hit “What I Am,” which is addictive, no matter how old you are.
Plus, Catie sits down in the studio with CUNY professor and poet Celina Su to discuss how to avoid burnout as a political activist, refugees, and prose.
