On The Sound of Ideas, there's a million things we haven't done. Taking a close look at the "Hamilton" phenomenon, for example. But just you wait. We'll talk about it on The Sound of Ideas at 9am. As the smash Broadaway hit begins a six-week run in Cleveland, we'll talk about its local and global impact with The Plain Dealer's Andrea Simakis and it's impact in the classroom, with two recent Shaker Heights High grads who can safely be called super fans.  Plus, we'll talk to a Twinsburg middle school teacher who won a national education award for her work helping underserved kids in El Salvador.
