About this Episode

Friends, we're ten episodes in and that means it's time for a BONUS WEEK! Gather round for a very special commentary track episode, wherein Andrew and Jess pull back the curtain and let you listen in to the very first episode they ever recorded, with NBC Diversity Scholarship winner and actor Jermaine Blackwell. Here's a hint: It was absolute chaos. It starts with a fire alarm going off and Andrew's apartment almost catching on fire. Go us!!!!

Here's the good news: We're releasing the next two test episodes as more bonus yumminess for you, and they went much better. We got to sit down with actress Christina Anthony right before she was picked up for her new show Mixed-ish (shout out to Aunt Denise!) and we sat down with Jessica Jones actor Jay Klaitz right after he had a new baby!

Check them out here and then head over to Twitter and let us know what you think.


Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful and probably more good looking than we are? In most careers, mentorship is a built-in part of the process, but as theatre people, Andrew (Hamilton) and Jess (Broadway Unlocked) always wished they had more opportunity and acess. Which is exactly why each week they’re taking you to coffee with some of the most incredible folx they can find, from Broadway to TV to YouTube to Sports to Historians to Entrepreneurship. We set up the coffee date and you become a part of the podcast as our guests answer your most burning questions. All without anyone having to leave the comfort of the internet (or put pants on tbh).

If you’re like us, and wish you had more access to smart, funny people who can help inspire you, this is your podcast! Anything goes on TM2C, so buckle up and leave us a VideoAsk to be a guest on the show and be mentored on air.

Oh! And come hang out with us on the internets!
