The Other Side of Darkness: A Seinfeld Parody Podcast

Interview with Seinfeld guest star Melanie Smith (”Rachel Goldstein”)

June 25, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues. For the next several weeks, I'll be sharing conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld.

This week I'm talking with Melanie Smith, who played Jerry's girlfriend Rachel Goldstein in The Raincoats, The Hamptons and The Opposite. We talked about that famous "I was in the pool!" scene, improvising on Curb with Larry David, and her decision to leave Hollywood and start a new chapter of her life on the other side of the country. Melanie had so much wisdom to share--don't miss a second of this interview.

This week’s musical guest is Auramics, a psychedelic, radiophonic, musique concrète group based in NYC/LA, founded by Kristi Scarvelis & Glen Lee Flynn in 2014 in Brooklyn. Listen to the end for their song Founders of Time.
