The West Wing Weekly releases an episode each week corresponding to a single episode of the hit television series created by writer and Outer Critics Circle winner Aaron Sorkin.
Hosts Joshua Malina (a former West Wing cast member) and Hrishikesh Hirway break down the long-running television show. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a noted fanatic of the show. (After his final curtain call as the title character in Hamilton, the orchestra played him off to the tune of the West Wing theme song.)
On January 16, the podcast uploaded an original rap titled “What’s Next?” a famed –ism of fictional President Bartlett, played by Martin Sheen. Spliced with sound bites from Bartlett, Miranda raps about the characters and plot lines to make any fan of the show giddy.
