"You had me at RENT," podcast host Darnelle Radford said about setting up this conversation between Gen Xer Gabby Kaplan-Mayer, a longtime member of the BSR team, and Gabby's 16-year-old daughter June, who is already in love with musical theater. The three of them talk about how Radford and Kaplan-Mayer first experienced RENT, how many times they've seen it (really), and what June thinks after growing up on Hamilton.
