Smashing Stories


So, just like everyone else, I have a podcast!

Join me and other comedians, storytellers, writers, actors, filmmakers, and songwriters as we tell the stories behind the stories we tell and call ourselves out on our bullshit.

Episode 1: David Crabb

David Crabb (author, “Bad Kid” and Moth host) confronts Melanie about using men for sex! Melanie digs deep into David’s “gay goth kid” past and his evolving family relationships

Episode 2: Brock Wilbur

Melanie goes high and low-brow with Brock Wilbur, discussing their changing POV and its impact on the biggest stories of their lives. The low-brow? The true meaning of “donkey punch”!

Episode 3: Jonathan Bradley Welch


On this episode,  I talk to Jonathan Bradley Welch about dating and sex and relationships and what assholes we are sometimes. Find him hosting  The Big Blue To Do podcast and The Q at UCB Sunset in Los Angeles.

Episode 4: Baron Vaughn

 In this episode, I’m joined by Baron Vaughn, one of the funniest comedians I know and also the star of one of my favorite shows, Grace and Frankie (he’s also in Netflix’s new Mystery Science Theater 3000!). This was one of the most thought-provoking conversations I’ve had with anyone in a long time (but funny cuz it’s Baron). He and I get deep and he talks about family secrets and people’s perceptions of him as a black man on stage and how he doesn’t talk about what people expect him to. Too bad you can’t hear what happened After the show when he spent 45 minutes trying to explain singularity and AI to me. Now I’m terrified of the future and robots. Anywho, this is a truly fantastic episode.
