Democracy & Z Has Something For 'Hamilton' Fans

Lin-Manuel Miranda portrays Alexander Hamilton, left, and Phillipa Soo portrays Eliza Hamilton in a filmed version of the original Broadway production of 'Hamilton.'

The Hamilton film arrives on Disney+ Friday, July 3. And that has the students who work on WVXU's Democracy & Z podcast stoked! In fact, they're dropping an episode tonight for fans of the musical megahit, with students from Cincinnati's School for the Creative and Performing Arts and Indian Hill High School breaking it all down: the show, the history, the racial politics, the awesomeness.

On Cincinnati Edition, we talk to some of the young people behind Democracy & Z. Joining the show are Cincinnati Public Radio Educational Outreach Coordinator Julie Coppens; and School for the Creative and Performing Arts Sophomores Seth Coppens and Rashaad Rice.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
