Is anyone surprised to learn that Lin Manuel Miranda is a fan of The West Wing? We thought not.

Miranda wrote and recorded a West Wing rap for the podcast West Wing Weekly, which is co-hosted by podcaster Hrishikesh Hirway and former West Wing star Joshua Malina, and often features guest appearances from cast members and political figures. 

The track was written to the podcast’s theme music, a remixed sample from the show’s soundtrack. You can download clean and explicit versions from the West Wing Weekly website.
