Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched in 2011 with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)

Original show host and executive producer Marc Hershon, along with booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, associate producer Tyson Saner, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years. In 2018, Hershon abandoned the host chair and anointed Saner to the position, with nary a notice from the legions of listeners. Typical.

Saluton! Ne estas kulero…Welcome to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I am your host Tyson Saner. I've got a show for you that's bursting with content for your ears.

Earlier today I was thinking about how strange it is that many of us refer to soundcasts as "shows"…because, aside from those with a visual component such as video or something like it…mostly soundcasts are…well, SOUND…You can't really see sound…just that which it effects. So podcasts, like radio shows before them, would more accurately be referred to as "tells"…but it's silly to think about re-naming everything simply because of logic.

I mean, I'd have to re-brand my other soundcast "Anti Social Show" to "Anti Social Tell"…and that's just weird…the acronym sucks too…it's "AST"…I don't think that's a thing. I Googled it and it's not a word…it's not an English word at any rate. Let's see. If I put it through Google Translate, I see it means "branch" in…German. So, mystery solved.

Anyway, in this edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I've got clips from The TryPod, The One In Twenty Show, You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes, Let's Write An Episode, Dr. Drew After Dark, and Thick Skin with Jeff Ross.

We've also got a TRIPLE dose of Raging Moderate Will Durst's "Burst O Durst" segments. That's right, THREE! There's the latest edition of "Let's Review" from Succotash executive producer Marc Hershon, And, of course, a reading from TrumPoetry.com, our Fake Sponsor with a real website with real poetry.

It's a lot of content so let's get to it 

CLIPS

The TryPod
The Try Guys have swam with sharks, survived in the wild, shocked themselves with birthing simulators, and risked their lives for their videos. In this weekly podcast they dissect their experiences as internet creators and best friends who have made a living failing upwards. Our clips is from their first epi which dropped back in May of this year, entitled "Sex Tapes & First Dates".

Let's Write an Episode
Comedian Tommy Oler and friends get together to perform and write fake episodes of your favorite shows from the past and present, audio drama style. Listen as some of your most beloved characters go on adventures never before possible. Our clip is from their second-ever episode, featuring Tommy, KC Shorina, and NIck Cox, who get together to write their own episode of the hit 90's TV show "Saved By The Bell.

Dr. Drew After Dark
Dr. Drew Pinsky is a board-certified internist and one of America's most trusted physicians. On Dr. Drew After Dark, he shares his professional opinion about all of the weirdest stuff on the Internet. The clip we're featuring hails from Epi8, which first hit the web back in April of this year. In it is a miniature recreation of "Loveline", a late-night radio advice program that Dr. Drew hosted with radio personality and podcaster Adam Carolla…on which Andy Dick had been a guest multiple times. …

You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
A weekly comedy interview podcast, You Made It Weird originated under the premise that Holmes would ask his guest, usually a fellow comedian, about three "weird" things he knew about them, but the show has since evolved into a much more loose conversation about such complex topics as comedy, religion, and sexuality. Everybody has secret weirdness, comedian Pete Holmes gets comedians to share theirs including, in an episode from the end of last year, the unique, weird, and wonderful comedy brain of Paula Poundstone.

The One in Twenty Show 
An interview-based podcast hosted by Evan Rogers, The One in Twenty Show is rooted in finding the next one in twenty individuals who are pursuing their passions with success. Our clip is from Epi38 from this past May, and features guest Jen Matichuk, a multi-faceted creator from Canada — most known for her work with Rhett and Link as a brand coordinator and producer on Good Mythical Morning.

Thick Skin with Jeff Ross
"Life is hard. Let's get through it together." Join Jeff Ross, The Roastmaster General, as he takes on "Touchy Subjects", interviews people smarter than him and pays tribute to the recently deceased, so they can properly Roast In Peace. The clip we're featuring was from a show just a couple of weeks ago, entitled "Why I Roasted Anne Frank" on what would have been her 90th Birthday.

And there's another "tell over and done with." No, that doesn't sound good at all…I don't think it will catch on any time soon. You know what could though? This soundcast. How?…I haven't worked that part out much beyond a semi-aggressive word-of-mouth campaign…For example, I have a show on my YouTube channel called Tyson Saner: Gamer where I play video games and give commentary of my experiences. At the end of every episode I mention Succotash The Comedy Souncast Soundcast and how you can find its website at www.succotashshow.com if one was so inclined to do so. 

I also mention Anti Social Show a podcast I co-host that, assuming you have heard this episode from the beginning, you may well remember me mentioning it…and finally I mention a little show called Gaming Outside My Comfort Zone which is a gaming show that my wife hosts on her YouTube channel which is called "SexxyLaura27Games". 

That's my attempt at giving word-of-mouth about this and other ongoing projects…and THIS is my attempt to do that very thing in your ears if you are listening…or hearing that little voice in your head that you hear while reading things  - If and/or when you are reading things in your head. 

And if you were so inclined to tell anyone about Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast you would be performing an intense act of kindness toward us…and we would appreciate that a great deal…for that is what we mean when we ask you to Please Pass The Succotash
