The next episode of Succotash, The Comedy Podcast Podcast, is here. Late. AGAIN.
I keep trying to crank this sucker out every week but that darned Life keeps getting in the way. As much as I enjoy producing Succotash, my landlord has told me time and time again that – no, he will not take plugs on the show in exchange for the rent. Nor will the grocery store trade with me for food. And I'm sure not going to get gas with my podcast.
So, for the time being anyway, this show remains something I get to as often as I can and I will keep TRYING to drop a show a week, but it’s challenging. (I appreciate those of you who can hang with the erratic release schedule!)
In addition to beau coup clips this week, I belly back up to the bar with our booth announcer Bill Heywatt for what proves to be an explosive episode. In the midst of preparing his "Wolf Spritzer" concoction, Bill underestimated the power the his SodaStream machine could unleash and he proceeded to drench the both of us with Gunpowder Green Tea.
But we weathered that storm and soldiered on to finish making up Bill's tribute to his favorite newsman, Wolf Blitzer. If you can't see the recipe here, you'll find it on our homesite at http://SuccotashShow.com. And I'll post it up on the Succotash Facebook page as well.
It sure was great to finally be back with Bill at the studio wet bar, and I took a picture of the setup so that the listening audience might admire his posh layout.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, CHILLPAK HOLLYWOOD HOUR
Friends-of-Succotash Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are celebrating six years of hosting the Chillpak Hollywood Hour podcast. Their show was a chief inspiration for me deciding to launch Succotash two years ago so join me in wishing them the best as they continue to produce high quality, interesting and entertaining episodes. I've made them an honorary sponsor for this episode of Succotash and - in keeping with our months-old tradition of mentioning each other's programs in one way or another, I've got a slice from their most recent Epi311, where Phil kicks off the show by mentioning us in the process of apologizing for not being able to mention us. It's beautiful.
TOP 10 MOST ACTIVE IN THE STITCHER TOP 100 COMEDY PODCAST LIST
I'm happy to report that that podcast feature with the longest title in the world just got its own jingle, courtesy of the Studio P Jingle Singers! There was a lot of action in Stitcher's Top 100 Comedy Podcasts this past week - massive swings both up and down for a bunch of different shows. (This is SO much more exciting than charting the Top 10 shows, isn't it?)
