171: Leslie Odom Jr. Gets Real About Setting Boundaries and Calling Your Shot


If you’re as big a fan of Hamilton as I am, then you know how much I was freaking out on the inside to get to interview Leslie Odom Jr. Actor, singer, and originator of the role of Aaron Burr (sir) on Broadway, Leslie came with all sorts of wisdom on what happens when you call your shot incorrectly, how his parents prepared him for the brutal realities of show business, and the gift he wants to share with you during this, the weirdest holiday season any of can remember.

Note: this episode contains some cussing, so watch out for little ears :)

You can grab Leslie's latest holiday album, The Christmas Album, out now (!!!), by clicking here: https://leslieodomjr.ffm.to/xmas It's the perfect gift for your holiday!
