Featuring Melina Schein as The Saucy Soprano and Friends
Join The Saucy Soprano for the sauciest podcast around! As a geographically-misplaced, Argentine-born, Manhattan-raised, out-of-work Jewish opera singer living in Western Canada (don't ask!), Melina is on a pandemic-fuelled mission to reinvent herself. Whenever the world stops making sense, she focuses on what does: music, food and human connection.
In SAUCY TALK, Melina gathers friends and colleagues from around the world for good gabbing, fabulous food and memories of music to turn Covid on its tuchis!
