Up Here Podcast
Welcome to the Up Here Down Low, where we look behind the scenes of the new Hulu musical romcom Up Here! We know that Hulu released all eight episodes at once, but we like to do things a little more traditionally around here. What can we say? We’re romantics! Every week we’ll be talking with the cast, crew, and creators of the show about how they make musical TV magic.

Hosted by Madison Cross and Julian Goza.
