Like the man says, it’s me, Marc Hershon. And I’m to be your host and 100% recyclable container for Epi132 of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. This is actually an edition of Succotash Chats, the variety of where we feature a conversation instead of clips, and this time around our Special Guest is Danny Lobell.
Danny is a comedian and also the host of the Modern Day Philosophers podcast. He interviews comedians but It’s a nice twist on the typical talker, because once they cover some of the usual ground in an interview, Danny reveals a philosopher that’s been selected for each particular guest.
He and the guest then learn about the philosopher at the same time — Danny keeps himself from knowing who they’re going to talk about by having his producer, Alex Fossella, select the philosopher and information about them.
He’s had some terrific guests since the show’s been on — people like Carl Reiner, Bill Burr, Jackie Mason, Maria Bamford, and Lewis Black. This past week he interviewed Brian Regan, who I’m a big fan of, and so I thought it would be fun to talk to Danny about that experience, how he came up with the concept for Modern Day Philosophers, and stuff like that.
We play a couple of clips from his chat with Regan, but you’re probably going to want to grab the whole interview, which you can do at http://ModernDayPhilosophers.net.
A DOUBLE DOSE O' DURST
In addition to this episode’s Chat, we have TWO segments of our Burst O’ Durst with political comedian & social commentator Will Durst, as well as some original tunage from our friend Abner Serd, a dip into the Tweetsack and the whole thing is brought to you by Henderson's Fancy Pants for Fops.
Thanks again to our special guest, Danny Lobell. And thank to YOU. Yes, YOU. For downloading or streaming this episode. Appreciate all you do but we’d love you even more if you’ll visit our homesite, http://SuccotashShow.com, and click on our Donate button to give us some of your delicious money to help us keep things podcasty. Barring that, you can click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page and do your shopping there that way, which kicks us back a little something. Or avail yourself of our fine merchandise in the Succotashery. If all of those options are somehow beyond you, at the very least, please remember to PLEASE pass the Succotash!

Oh, jeez, here I am. Marc Hershon, your host and artificial sweetener for Epi131 of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. This is another edition of Succotash Clips, and we have a whole passel of comedy podcast clippage for you.
When I say “we” I mostly mean me because I’m the only one typing up this blog entry. But I also include our booth announcer Bill Heywatt, whom you heard at the top of the show, our Engineer/Producer Joe Paulino, our booth assistant Kenny Durgis, and our delightful Associate Producer Tyson Saner, who discovered and harvested several of the selections you’ll be hearing. And I also include those comedy podcasters who got their clips to us themselves.
Yes, that’s right. If you want to get a clip of your show on our show, and you’re tired of waiting around for either Tyson or me to find you, you can upload a 3-5 minute MP3 clip directly to Succotash by going to http://hightail.com/u/Succotash and following the simple instructions.
Fifth Annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival
I got my super early bird 3-day pass for this year’s 5th Annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival. It’s toward the end of September – the 23rd thru the 25th. That pass was just 99 bucks and I just checked – ALL the early bird passes are sold out so if you’re going to go, you’re going to be paying full freight. You can get a one day pass or got for all three days. Check out the ticket sitch at http://LAPodfest.com. I’m trying to see if they’ll let me run a panel or be a guest on a panel or even do a live Succotash episode from the festival. We’ll see. At the very least, I’ll go prepared to hold down my usual corner of the Podcast Lab.
In This Episode
Most of clips we have loaded up for this show are from podcasts we’ve not featured before, but there are a couple of familiar faces…or voices, rather. We have snippets from the Cue Plot Device podcast, The Language of Bromance, the Mt. Rushmore podcast, Poop Culture, the SeeSo SeeShow, the ShePod podcast, Sup Doc, This Freakin’ Show, This Is A Podcast and The Unoriginal Podcast.
In addition to the clips, we have a double dose of our Burst O’ Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. Plus another musical piece by Tyson made up by cobbling together audio from the How Did This Get Made? podcast called “Dance Mr. Boogaloo.” (Other selection by Tyson can be found on his SoundCloud page.)There is a pile of things to read in the ol’ TweetSack. And, in honor of Elon Musk’s most recent Space X private rocket launch and landing, this episode of Succotash Clips is brought to you by Henderson’s Space Pants.
Cue Plot Device
Then here is where I started to get a tad "ranty"…
Then I got even rantier…
This Freakin’ Show
But then I finally give up…
