Yes, it’s me. Your host and cat wrangler for Epi111 of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. This is another Succotash Clips episode – that’s two in a row – and I’ve got a bucketful for comedy podcast clips for you this time around.
Our Associate Producer Tyson Saner grabbed some of ‘em, I clipped some, and we also had some podcasters upload them directly to us, using our Succotash upload link: http://Hightail.com/u/succotash.
In addition to the clips, we’ve got a double dose of our Burst O’ Durst segment, with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. We’ve got a Henderson’s Pants ad. We dig into the Tweetsack. And that’s about it.
Where Are We?
Besides the Clutch And Wiggle Experience, clipwise, we have samples from A Twilight World of Ultimate Smoothness, Date Speeding, Deviants Church, Don’t Worry – It’s Only The End of The World, Four Listeners, Pistol Shrimps Radio, Strong Opinions, The World of Mindshaft, and WTF.
Where Will We Be?
The 4th Annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival is coming up in September. I’ve been to the first three and they’re always a lot of fun. I already snagged a 3-day ticket for this year’s PodFest and I plan to hunker down in the SquareSpace Podcast Lab like some kind of great podcasting Jabba the Hutt. It’s September 18-20th at the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, and you can get tickets and more details at Eventbrite. I’ll be interviewing podcasters and ne’er-do-wells, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and say hello.
BTW, if you’re curious about what I do when I’m NOT on the Succotash microphone, crammed into Studio F and chatting at you, there’s a fun little article that came out this week over at http://SmartUp.life, entitled, The Man Who Named The BlackBerry. That’d be me. And the piece talks about some of the other brand names I’ve helped bring into the world from out of my brain.
Special Offer (Sort Of)
Maybe you’ve noticed that Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast, doesn’t drop every week. Hell, or every two weeks, for that matter. I’d like to do it more often. Really I would. But work is tough and pays pretty well, too. So that’s where I have to put the majority of my focus. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. And you can help. If you click on the Donate button on the homesite, then kick us whatever you can afford to give in order to help us pay for the stuff that podcasters pay for to keep all of this going, I’ll start pushing myself harder to get these shows cranked out more often. Here's the deal: For every month that the Donate button brings in enough to cover our Succotash nut – that’s about 60 bucks — I will push out 4 consecutive weeks of this show, by hook or by crook. So get clicking!
WTF w/guest President Obama
Pistol Shrimps Radio
A Twilight World of Ultimate Smoothness
Rob and Craig over at The Clutch & Wiggle Experience have been friends and fans of Succotash pretty much since the time we started over three years ago. They regularly replay the show on CWERadio.com and so isn’t it high time we got back to seeing what THEY’RE up to? Even if they had to send in the a clip themselves? Recently on The Clutch and Wiggle Experience, Rob and Craig discussed the recent passing of legendary BB King – and that his family has the feeling he was poisoned to death.
The World of Mindshaft
Don’t Worry: It’s Only The End of The World
Another episode of Succotash Clips is now history. In the can. Kaput. I’ll have another one coming up pretty quick. Even quicker if you guys hit that old devil Donate button on our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite. Remember, if we clear 60 bucks, I’ll crank out an episode a week for 4 consecutive weeks. See how that tastes, right?
Until next time, thanks for passing the Succotash!

Yes, it’s me. Marc Hershon. Your host and rack jobber for Epi110 of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. This is a Succotash Clips episode — finally back after two Succotash Chats epis — which means we’re featuring clip after clip after clip from comedy podcasts scattered all over the webiverse.
A lot of them were harvested by our intrepid Associate Producer Tyson Saner. I scraped up a few. Some were sent in by comedy podcasters themselves, or uploaded to us directly via our upload site, at http://hightail.com/u/succotash.
One of them isn’t even a comedy podcast, but the host asked if I’d feature a clip and I figured “Screw the network fatcats and bigwigs! This is MY show, dammit, and I’ll do what I please!” That’s right. This one non-comedy podcast clip is going to be played come Hell or high water! But just a little bit later in the show.
What shows will we be clipping in this epi, mighten you ask? Here’s what in store: The Comatose Podcast, Eric And Stacey, Excuse My Adlib, The Blank Planet, We’re From The Internet, and The Wrong Foot Podcast.
Burst O' Durst
In addition to the clips we have a double dose of our Burst O’ Durst with comedian and social commentator Will Durst. He talks about who the hell would want to be President of the United States, and also a quick lesson on several advantages and disadvantages of being a Baby Boomer. Also, if you’re going to be in or around San Francisco at the end of June, you can catch Durst giving a workshop as part of the Beatnick Shindig going on at Fort Mason. It’s on Saturday, June 27th, just one hour from 10:30 to 11:30 AM and the cost is just 20 bucks. Hop over to http://BeatnickShindig.com and grab yourself some tickets.
Bill The Podcaster
Our announcer, Bill Heywatt, has come out of the booth and has embarked on his own podcast adventure. He's still with the show, but you can now catch some mini-episodes of The Bill Heywatt Show as part of The Strange Times Podcast, with Davian Dent and Kat Sorens. We feature his very first episode in it's entirety on this show.
The Blank Planet
The Wrong Foot Comedy Podcast
Excuse My Adlib
We’re From The Internet
The Eric & Stacey "Talking Rubbish" Podcast
That’s it for this edition of Succotash Clips, friends. I know it was a long drought between shows this time – longer than usual – but I’m trying to get back on the beam and I already have a full rack of clips locked and loaded for another episode real soon.
In the meantime, enjoy, tell your friends, and thanks for passing the Succotash!
