Ellyn Marsh

Joey Taranto

Joey loves any excuse to talk shit with Ellyn Marsh and now they’ve made a career out of it! Hopefully a blessing for most. Certainly a nightmare for some.

And after an incredible year of working on Obsessed with Disappeared, Joey is proud to continue his tour de gay alongside Ellyn’s clown parade with their new podcast “I Think Not!”

Joey is a proud native of New Orleans (did you know he’s also a minister’s kid??) and loves bringing his southern roots and NOLA growl to the world of True Crime. He, like Yellin’ Marsh, is a Broadway performer who made his debut in "Rock of Ages."


He was also in the original companies of both "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" (yep - you read that right) and "Kinky Boots” (with Yellin herself!). Joey has also been seen in Jesus Christ Superstar Live on NBC! And in 2022 he was feature in two critically acclaimed films: “Chrissy Judy” and “BROS.”

Now when it comes to the world of True Crime - Joey was a little bit of a novice, but has quickly found his footing. After all he is from the bayou and understands what it takes to hide a body. Not that he’s ever had to do that. Definitely not.

Shit. Maybe erase this?

Ellyn thinks that being on stage with her best friend, Joey, is basically just like a Tuesday night in her living room. After opening the Broadway show "Kinky Boots" with him, they unfortunately have way too much dirt on each other and are in it for life at this point. Together they co-host the true crime comedy podcast "I Think Not!" Ellyn and Joey take great pleasure in making you laugh through the pain and then giving you a little bait and switch in your feels. 

She also appeared on Broadway in Pretty Woman; Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; and some plays (who sees those?). Ellyn recently was seen in the Disney movie Better Nate than Ever and can also be heard as a singing troll in Frozen. She's bringing all of her musical theater references to the world of her other passion, true crime! After reporting on missing persons cases for three years, she's decided to shake it up a bit with a variety of cases from classic true crime TV shows. 

Ellyn can also be heard on the true crime talk show podcast Rabia and Ellyn Solve the Case with writer, lawyer and badass Rabia Chaudry, as well as Shut the F*ck Up Nick Lachey, a Love is Blind recap podcast, with fellow (Tony decorated) Broadway superstar, Daisy Eagan. She hopes to set the world record for most podcasts in 2024. 


Along with being an actor, writer, teacher, and podcaster, Ellyn is also mother to tween-age Lola, who finds her quite embarrassing.
