There is exciting news today here at Hypable: the introduction of a brand new podcast. Smash Chat is a podcast all about the NBC television show Smash, which is set to premiere Monday, February 6. Following in Glee’s footsteps, Smash is going to be a TV musical, but this time geared more towards adults. Lead by an all-star cast that includes names such as Debra Messing and Katharyn McPhee, Smash is going to take audiences behind the scenes of a Broadway musical and look at what it takes to create a hit.

Listeners of Hypable’s Glee Chat will find that they recognize the voices of Smash Chat as it is hosted by Glee Chat’s very own Jessica O’Neal, Coty Chanley, and Mitchel Clow. It is only natural that our resident Gleek podcasters would be excited about this new TV musical, so excited in fact, that they couldn’t wait for the show to actually premiere before they started talking about it. Similar to Glee Chat, a new episode of Smash Chat will be recorded each week directly following the airing of a new episode of the television show. The podcast will find the hosts analyzing each new episode of Smash as well as discussing any big Smash news items that were released that week.

Join Jessica, Coty, and Mitchel in this first episode of Smash Chat as they introduce themselves and explain in a little more detail what you can expect from the podcast as well as what they are looking forward to when Smash premieres in February. Enjoy!

    So, FIRST! And also, I am so excited about this that it’s not even funny. I just hope I can find somewhere to watch the show since I don’t have cable!!

    I was lucky enough to meet and do a mock audition for the casting director of this show this summer, and as someone totally obsessed with Broadway, I’m looking forward to seeing how this show is!

  • Andrea

    Oh well I guess I don’t have to worry about the pilot episode. It’s going to up all over the place on the internet next Monday!!

    Will the podcast eventually be on iTunes to subscribe to? Thanks.

      Eventually, if Smash Chat is something people get in to, we definitely will have it on iTunes!

    I think this show will smash Glee (pun totally intended). Glee is a good Show but they have made some terrible choices. The character development sucks, the long hiatus’s between episodes. The lack of viewers, if this show is great (which it seems like it will be), I will probably stop watching Glee.

    Sounds good. Will definitely listen!

    Hey Andrew, what happened to HYPE? Why doesn’t it appear on the list  of podcasts on the right of the page anymore?

      Oh, I hadn’t even noticed this. I hope they didn’t end it!

    FINALLY got a chance to listen to this (nothing like last minute). Just so you guys know, I was on the fence about watching the show until I saw you three were doing a podcast about it. Now that I’ve heard more, I’m really excited! Also, that outro song gave me goose bumps! She sounds incredible.

      Just found this comment now, but I’m so glad you started watching just because of us! You’re too sweet!
