The Songwriter
00:26:46

You're a high school misfit with the wrong hair and wrong clothes. You feel like you'll never find anything you're good at, or anyone you can relate to. Then, you discover hip hop, and find a home in the theater. You’re determined to be a star on Broadway.

There are just two problems — there’s no hip hop on Broadway, and no one who looks like you. So you’re going to make your own way. 

Hosted by Robbie Daymond.

The Champion
00:28:11

You’re passionate about the law, but in the 1960s and 1970s, the men around you don’t think women belong in a courtroom. But you’ll overcome sexism to show them that women belong wherever decisions are being made, and make a compelling case why gender inequality is wrong. 

Hosted by Rachel Bloom.
