Divergent Paths with Dan Dunford

Goodbye New York is a new musical with music by Andrew Beall, book by David Don Miller, and lyrics by Evan McCormack. Andy and David were able to sit down with me and we had a really nice talk. Learned so much about some things I really just don't know much about. Also I feel like I’m in the middle of a good run where I’m getting my interview legs back so to speak. And also excellent guests (obviously). Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
