Fringe Episode 10: Experience So Far

Notapom Productions' Hamilton Fringe Festival Podcast.  We sat down with Amanda Cosby-Nesbitt to chat about her Fringe experience thus far.  Amanda has been helping get the word out on Fringe shows through her freelance reviews and her Twitter (see links below).

We chat about this year's Fringe as well as some of our experiences in previous Fringe Festivals over the years.  Big shout out to all the volunteers, venue captains, staff, and everyone who keeps the festival running behind the scenes.

Amanda also gives us her top few picks out of the 15 (!) shows she saw opening weekend; not that it was easy because she was impressed by everything she has seen so far.
