Patrick Rhone is literally the nicest man on the Internet. As soon as Episode 1 dropped, he asked me to be on the show, and how could I say no? He is a man of incredible depths, and he loves musicals. I’m super grateful for Patrick… in general, really, but agreeing to do a podcast with me was just the cake.
