I wasn’t always a morning person. In fact, it wasn’t until I discovered The Miracle Morning that I decided to ditch my night owl tendencies and start to wake up earlier. Morning routines really just set the tone for the rest of the day. If you wake up and you're already feeling hurried, that energy takes you throughout the whole day and you never really feel like you catch up. But if you start the day intentionally and say, “these are the six things that I'm going to do to start my day” and get those done, you already feel so accomplished. You feel like you can take on anything for the whole rest of the day.
Lindsay McCarthy wrote her book, Miracle Morning For Parents and Families because once she really started implementing a morning routine, she saw how much it worked and all the benefits that came from it. And she has just really taken charge of her mornings for her family, not just for herself. After speaking with her, I think I'm going to start some “miracle morning” stuff with my kids as well and not keep it just for myself. I hope you take action to do the same for your family too!

Can you pass the marshmallow test? You’re a little kid. A marshmallow is placed on the table in front of you. You’re told you can eat it any time, but if you wait a little while, you’ll be given two marshmallows to eat.
The kids who have the self-control to pass this most famous of psychological tests turn out to have more rewarding and productive lives. Walter Mischel, who first ran the test in the 1960s, spent the rest of his career exploring how self-control works, summarized in his 2014 book The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control. “The ability to delay gratification and resist temptation has been a fundamental challenge since the dawn of civilization,” he writes. “It is the ‘master aptitude’ underlying emotional intelligence, essential for constructing a fulfilling life.”
This talk spells out the remarkable things have has been learned about willpower and self-control in the individual. It also considers wider implications. Does it make a difference when an organization or society has more people able to fully engage self-control? Does it make a difference when that kind of behavior is publicly expected and trained for explicitly? Is there a social or political or cultural level of surmounting marshmallow-test temptations? That might be the essence of long-term behavior.
Cue all the memes, all the gifs, and all the references because this week we are joined by none other than Scott Wasserman. Oh ya know, just the guy who programs all of the beats in a little show called HAMILTON! Yup, we are still floating after this awesome conversation with the Hamilton Beatmaster. And you guys! It's perfect because we're up to Chernow's "The Lovesick Colonel" chapter where Ham meets Eliza and Scott told us all about the badass rewiiiiiind in "Satisfied." "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
Gillian and Bianca discuss Chernow's "Frenzy of Valor" chapter with the one and only Hollis Jane aka @HamiltonsSquad. From Lin-Manuel Miranda shouting Hollis out from the Richard Rodgers stage, to the love between Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens, and the real reason Ham didn't duel Charles Lee... wow, there's a lot happening this week. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
It's listener appreciation time! Gillian and Bianca read some of your emails and talk about how awesome you all are. And in Chernow's "The Little Lion" chapter, we learn a little more about the friendship between Hamilton, Laurens, and Lafayette. Swoon. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
Gillian and Bianca talk Broadway bootlegs and Chapter 4 in Chernow: "The Pen and the Sword." Also, Gillian's Hamilton FOMO made her temporarily lose her mind so she tells a cautionary Craigslist tale. Yikes. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
In this week's episode, Gillian and Bianca are joined by Lizzy but you know her as @TheHamWing. We talk about her wonderful Hamilton/West Wing mashups as well as the next chapter in Chernow's book, "The Collegian." It turns out "The Farmer Refuted" pamphlet was no joke, but apparently that whole Ham punching the bursar thing was. Womp womp. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
Our resident high school history teacher Ashley Graffeo returns to gush over seeing "Hamilton"for the first time and talk about Chapter Two in Chernow's book, aptly titled "Hurricane." Not to mention Hamilton's early poetry in which he calls someone "an artful little slut." Damn, Ham! "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
This week Gillian and Bianca talk to Kathleen Cameron, the hilarious genius behind the Hamilton Dubsmashes, and dive into the prologue and first chapter of Chernow's book. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
Gillian and Bianca talk to Ashley Graffeo, a teacher at NYC's Harvey Milk High School, about how she uses "Hamilton" to get her students excited about American History. Spoiler alert: it totally works and there may or may not be rap battles involved. She also tells a story about the truly badass Peggy Schuyler. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
In the inaugural episode of The Hamilcast, Gillian and Bianca discuss how "Hamilton" reignited their friendship and explain what to expect in upcoming episodes. Hint: Chernow. "My Shot" instrumental provided by Bao Vu.
An insight into the broadway show, “Hamilton” and his life.
