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, estas mi Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It's been a while but what can I say? Life happens. I'm still listening to soundcasts and looking for other soundcasts to listen to so I already have some listened to for the next show.

What that means, of course, is that you have a greater chance of listening to a new show two weeks from the release of this episode than you did before I made sure to get extra listening done. I'm really trying to keep making these for those of you who are nice enough to listen to us and really, most sincerely, thank YOU for listening.

This Epi193 features clips from: Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited, Confidently Insecure with Kelsey Darragh, Nothin Burger Podcast, Giamatti! Giamatti! Giamatti!, The Life Beyond Our Mildest Dreams, and All Things Comedy Live.

I've also got a double dose of political comedian and social commentator Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment, a reading from our 100% FAKE SPONSOR (but Very Real Website) "TrumPoetry.com", and Executive Producer Marc Hershon has been gracious enough to send along another Let's Review segment for this program, featuring content from the soundcast Minor Adventures with Topher Grace.

It's a healthily portioned show and I can't wait to serve it to you.

CLIPS

Giamatti! Giamatti! Giamatti! (with Sam and Dan)
Dedicated to the academic discussion of the acclaimed actor, Paul Giamatti. Every week hosts Dan Brenneman & Sam Calderon move through a new piece in the Paul canon. ("Blessed be the Giamatti, praise be.") Our clips is from their second epi, "His Earliest Cameos", and it scrapes the surface of their bigger discussion on the experience that was attempting to watch a film called She'll Take Romance, whose cast included none other than…Paul Giamatti.

Nothin Burger Podcast
This very new soundcast features hosts Daniel Kaufman and Eric Ohlsen talking comedy, science, politics, or whatever else is on their minds. We've gotten a clip from the premiere episode from this past April, with guest Tony Martin — a former writer on The Simpsons — and it's from a segment of the show where they were talking about, strangely enough, The Simpsons.

Mildest Dreams
The Life Beyond Our Mildest Dreams soundcast offers an unfiltered, funny, insider's look at sobriety and its fringe culture. With hosts Owen Bowness and John Moses, our featured clip comes from a show that dropped in September of last year, and had guest Joe List along for the chat. The clip covers part of the trio's discussion about Buddhism.

All Things Comedy Live (with Bill Burr and Al Madrigal)
All Things Comedy soundcast network founders Bill Burr and Al Madrigal are joined by fellow comics for an unconventional hour-long show, featuring Bobby Lee, Rory Scovel, and Gareth Reynolds. The epi originally posted April 14th, 2016, our clip includes the beginning of the interview segment with Rory.

Confidently Insecure
Touted as "the podcast where we're absolutely sure we don't know everything," host Kelsey Darragh is joined by guest Eugene Lee Yang of The Try Guys crew. Taken from the first episode, which only just dropped in April of this year, the clip we have features Kelsey and Eugene discussing self-esteem, among other things…

Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited
Friend of Succotash Darren Staley sent in this clip, featuring Paul Provenza chatting it up about his TV show The Green Room with Darren and the titular Dylan Brody. (If YOU are a comedy soundcaster, you can do what Darren did and upload a 3-5 minute clip of your show directly to us, at http://hightail.com/u/Succotash, and we'll feature it on the show!)

Whew! That was a whole lotta show. I hope you found some of it entertaining. If you enjoyed any of the content in any of those clips and you're looking to say something nice to someone, you may have noticed that a great many soundcasters and Podcasters are on Twitter,which makes it very easy and convenient to reach out to them.

Many of them are actually pretty receptive to positive feedback although I imagine many would also be fairly surprised. Not because they don't deserve the praise but because — I don't know if you noticed this — people can be pretty darn negative with their comments to each other on Twitter. Who knows, maybe we can get kindness trending…

One last thing:  if you do reach out to any of the folks featured here on Twitter, why not tell them you heard them on Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast? If you'd like to include our show's Twitter handle so we know that you've tweeted at them it's @succotashshow ... and please be sure to us the hashtag #PassTheSuccotash because hashtags are fun to use.

So, for Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I'm signing off while once again gently imploring you to please pass the Succotash!
