Eep! My episode of Improv Nerd is LIVE! Download it on Itunes or listen to it at http://jimmycarrane.com/173-shana-merlin/

It's a recording of a live interview with me about my improv career, capped off with an envelope pushing improv scene. I've listened to 20 minutes so far and I'm halfway squirmy and halfway proud.

I'm curious how my improv friends vs civilian friends will receive it. Tell me what you think and what you take away from it!
