Janelle James is in the guest star chair this week, and it's all about performing in the stand-up scene at first.  From forgetting names, to audience members who just feel they have to email you afterward, to receiving notes on your set gracefully (or not), we cover it all.  Janelle and Sharon then discuss opening a bar with desserts called "The Sugar Lobby", before admitting to performance superstitions - like always bombing if you're not wearing lipstick.  And Janelle might just like the pain of bombing every once in a while...

Jew-Bu?  Jew-Boo?  Let's take a "private moment" to figure it out with Jessica Delfino, who just happens to be in the guest star chair this week.  She and Sharon discuss giving up pot and caffiene, and how NYC has too many choices.  Jessica then tells of how she usually loses her mind at a free buffet, before discussing her decision to shift her focus off of performance in order to open and run her own performance and arts space, The Unicorn.  And we finish with Jessica performing her song "Chinatown".

OMG, you scared me!  Isaac Oliver (Intimacy Idiot) is in the guest star chair this week and you REALLY should have warned me before touching me.  Sharon discusses her upcoming surgery with Isaac, before the two segue seamlessly into tales of online dating app usage.  "The Half-Kiss" is then analyzed in detail.  And we finish with Isaac telling of his experiences while recording his audiobook.  Beets and meatsuits and peen!  We've got it all this episode.

It's a mutual well-being admiration society this week, with Riley Soloner (Dairy Affirmations) in the guest star chair.  Riley is starting his own religion, and tells Sharon all about it.  He also discusses his time working for a mobile pizza oven AND his time babysitting a 16 year-old.  The two then discuss the perks of being an uncle or aunt, and how you can get addicted to unfollowing people on "social" media.  Be grateful for the giver of milk!

Ah, the circle of NYC real estate life!  That's the lead topic on this episode with Ben Lerman (Spooners, Late Night) in the guest star chair.  Ben discusses his apartment, which happens to be situated in a NORC.  He and Sharon also touch on having to wait 90 minutes for the doctor...dicks...and one person shows.  Then lastly, after discussing Ben's songwriting process (HINT: he MAY or MAY NOT work in a bathroom), Ben treats us to a performance of his song "Lazy Eye".

On this very special episode, Sharon welcomes the two co-founders of the Tonya Harding Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum to the guest star chair...which they have to share.  They discuss the process of setting up the museum and the people they've met, as well as all the happenings at their Opening Gala, which was held the night before.  Sharon then applies for the docent program, before they debate which is better...a triscuit or a club cracker.

Names pronouned and spelled incorrectly is the lead topic this week as Sharon welcomes Hadiyah Robinson (hrcomedy-dot-com) to the ol' guest star chair.  The different levels of freaky are discussed next.  After a whiskey shot, Hadiyah and Sharon mull over how people always die in stories on The Moth.  But listen, don't stress about your career...although you really should do a better job of plugging your upcoming shows.  Let's rehearse...

David Montgomery (Two Gays, No Girls, At a Pizza Place) is in the ol' guest star chair this week, in town from Pittsburg where he is involved with The Moth and the greater storytelling scene.  David and Sharon Chat about David's day job -- teaching first grade.  David's first standup experience is then covered in all its awkward glory.  Remember...the audience wants you to win!

Just say the word!  You know...Sussudio!  Amanda Duarte (Dead Darlings) is with Sharon this time, showing the guest star chair who's boss.  The two discuss the ubiquity of weed in Brooklyn, and how those who peak in high school should not expect any better.  Multiple kinds of quick deaths are covered as well.  Likewise the faux pas of wearing pantyhose as tights.  Then they wind things up deciding for whom they should each be a backup singer.  (SPOILER: Sharon's headed overnight to Georgia...)

Botox!  Plantar's Warts!  Missionary Trips to far-off (slightly-resort-like) lands!  These topics and others are covered when Becky Yamamoto (Uninspired) is in the guest star chair for the entirity of this episode.  Other topics include getting carded and the bad fart smells of those you love.  Becky and Sharon also give equal time to the evil concepts of racist hogs and vocal fry. K?
