And with that certain sun-kissed glow, we welcome you back to a new batch of Sharon Spell Show podcasts!  Today Sharon welcomes Ophira Eisenberg (Ask Me Another, The Moth) to the guest star chair.  The two discuss the unique pleasures of producing live shows and then realize that it's okay to let go of URLs.  Then it's all about performances, including whether or not you should "glitz it up" for a show...what it was like to open for a magician act...and the best way to run away from a gig.

Singing the brand new Sharon Spell Show theme (that they just came up with) we welcome Girls With Brown Hair - Samantha Reece and Becky Chicoine - to share the guest star chair this week.  We (with Sharon, Katie, and Jason) correctly use the word "interstitial" and discuss Becky's inclusion in Cameron Diaz's "Body Book".  GWBH then tell us what it's like playing dads in their new webseries, before we all soak in the luxury of staying in a hotel in town.

If you listen closely, you can hear thunder and rain in the background of this week's episode, featuring Daren Fleming (darenflemingdotcom) in the guest star chair.  Daren starts by telling Sharon, Jason, and Katie all about his practice of complaint letter writing - from halogen lamps to the TSA.  Daren then discusses life as an employee of the showstopping extravaganze known as Grenadine Ross.  And we all finish by comparing our disgust levels when confronted with eating on the subway.

Joe Pera (The Perfect Week, The Dan + Joe + Charles Show) jumps into the guest star chair this week to discuss - in detail, mind you - with Sharon, Katie, and Jason the phenomenon known as "Fish Kiss". We then discuss city feet in general, and Sharon's favorite "Which Way" books, before Jason tells a tender story of the subtle difference between Kleenex and Scotties.

With a worry about being "gay enough" to start things off, this week finds Eliot Glazer (Eliot's Sketchpad, Haunting Renditions) in the guest star chair.  After a lengthy discussion about Drag Race with Sharon, Katie, and Jason, we all discuss extreme plastic surgery and how much we all hate vocal fry.  The convo is then rounded out with the relic that is call-in radio and how hard it is to stay on top of your RSS feed.  Truth!

Are you crazy?!?  Bangs for Summer?  What are you going to do when it gets humid? Such are the tough topics discussed this week with Dana Rossi (The Soundtrack Series) in the ol' guest star hot seat.  Dana tells us -- meaning Sharon, Katie, and Jason -- all about the time that The Soundtrack Series was held at the Museum of the Moving Image right after we decide the best course of action is to get a pool intern.  We discuss Record Store Day plans, and then reach the consensus that there will never be another Michael Jackson.

Rebecca Vigil (The Vigilante, Broadway's Next Hit Musical) is in the guest star chair this week.  She, along with Sharon, Jason, and Katie, discuss the pros and cons of Tindr at work before finding out how Rebecca's band, The Vigilante, got started.  We then compare dessert ramen recipes before engaging in a heated debate about Easter candy.  Down to Frown, folks!

We ("we" being Sharon, Jason, and Katie) are very pleased to welcome Lizz Winstead (Lady Parts Justice, The Daily Show) into the guest star chair this week.  Lizz has some fantastic Thanksgiving turkey tips to share with you, and then gives us all the low-down on what's happening with Lady Parts Justice.  We all then discuss life in a 1940's inhalarium and that time that Lizz officiated Frank DeCaro's wedding.  But...excuse me...I think you have a little uterus on your shoulder...

Frank Liotti (Cats Talk Back) jumps into the ol' guest star chair this week to discuss, along with Sharon, Katie, and Jason, the perils of co-habitating with actors.  We then muse upon orange paint jobs, and what one should do to pass the time during a hurricane.  Frank then instructs us on how to take back power at an Irish bar open mic, and tells us his three wishes.

Opting for a cold open this week, instead of the usual smooth-as-silk slide into conversation, we welcome Natasha Rothwell (Take it Personal, Hodapp & Rothwell) into the guest star chair.  She, along with Sharon, Jason, and Daniel, stand in awe of fridges for a moment before discussing the slight differences between a Wrap Room and a Rap Room.  Natasha then discusses contending with the stories of hip hop stars AND surviving a year working at the Tokyo Comedy Store.
