Episode 71 - The Schuyler Sisters - a conversation with author Amanda Vaill

Since the musical Hamilton opened on Broadway we've been getting a lot of requests to cover the Schuyler sisters, Angelica, Eliza and Peggy. (You sang that, right?) But we couldn't make it work because there wasn't enough material available to us to fill a whole show in the way we would want to...so we met someone who could:.

Author Amanda Vaill.

Amanda has written several award winning biographies, scripts, articles and...be still our hearts...has been contracted to write a biography on the two most famous Schuyler sisters, Angelica and Eliza. She's begun her research and graciously agreed to talk with us and dish Schuyler. We talk about the three sisters, the family that they came from, the families that they created, the rumors that surrounded them...basically who lived, who died and with Amanda's help, we get to tell their story.
