Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. So I thought I'd take Thanksgiving off this year and advantage to dig up this classic, apparently Thanksgiving-themed, episode of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast — yes, that’s what it was called back in November of 2015. I haven't heard this one in a while. But I looked at the list of clips - some of these shows aren’t even around any more - and I look forward to taking this journey back in time with you when the show was only a little more than four years old. Now-executive producer Marc Hershon was the host, I was the associate producer, and the show was still using the P word when referring to itself. I'll have a fresh batch of clips for you in two weeks. Until then, let's get to remembering together…

What? Me, Marc Hershon, your host and toaster pastry? Back within a week with another installment of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast? Yes, it’s true.
This is Succotash Clips, Epi 120. And we have a Thanksgiving Feast of comedy podcast clips for you. It’s a veritable spread of different flavors and — given the humor in some of them — truly a groaning board of a clip buffet in store for your ears this time around.
We’ve got The All-Seeing Guys, Bitter Sound, Ear Goggles, Ice & The Face, The McCue Report, Primalcast, The Reigning Lunatic, Rob & Slim, The Vince Wylde Show and Who Charted?
In addition to that earload, we’ve got a visit to the Podcast Graveyard, courtesy of our associate producer Tyson Saner, who also harvested a number of the clips we’ve got on hand. We also have another double dose of our Burst O’ Durst with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst, a rummage around the ol’ Tweetsack, and a brand new Henderson’s Pants commercial.
Other than our ads from Henderson’s Pants, Succotash remains fitfully sponsor-free. The good news: you aren’t burdened by listening to those pesky ads. The bad news: money to keep this show going basically comes out of my pocket. You can help out with one of several methods, all done by visiting our homesite at http://SuccotashShow.com. You can click on the Donate button and shoot us some moolah. You can click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page and buy stuff at Amazon, then they give us a slice off the top. Or you can click on the link to our Succotashery and purch some merch, a percentage of which comes back to us after they print up whatever you buy. Or you can keep on listening to this show for free and just know that, in the back of my head, I’m thinking you’re just an electronic freeloader. No guilt, no judgement, though.
The Rob & Slim Show Just this last week I was a call-in guest on the LIVE partycast known as The Rob & Slim Show. They’ve been retweeting our stuff the past few months and I had just had Tyson clip me off a chunk of a recent show but, I figured as long as I was going to be on their show, we may as well use THAT clip. Rob and Slim — I haven’t been able to find much else about them or the other voice that seem to float around during their ‘cast — run a 3+ hour live whoop-de-doo, in the style of a morning radio show as they put it and they cover the gamut of topics that are fresh in and around the news. Plus they drink. How can you lose?
The Bitter Sound
The Reigning Lunatic
Ice & The Face
The Vince Wylde Show
The McCue Report
The All Seeing Guys
As I said, a cornucopia of podcasts for your Thanksgiving week listening pleasure. Take us with you on that long drive to the relatives' house or listen while you're digesting on the couch after stuffing your face. And for those of you NOT in the United States, have a great Thursday and Friday.
Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving or not, remember that I don’t care if you pass the turkey or the stuffing or the pumpkin pie, but I will always thank you for passing the Succotash!

And that was a show-sized clip of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast, as the soundcast Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast used to be known. I really enjoyed hearing that episode again I don't think I'd heard it since it was first uploaded and like a Thanksgiving turkey should be, that episode was absolutely what you could refer to as being well-stuffed.
I don't really have anything else to add except to say thank you to Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, and you - the listener. Thank you for listening, Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for passing the Succotash.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner, your host for this seasonally appropriate episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast — Hallowanksgiving addition! Yes, it's that special time situated perineum-esquely between Halloween and Thanksgiving. The mid-terms have come and gone and hoo boy, ghosts and turkeys everywhere! Comedy and conversations become essential, people have those conversations, record them and release them as comedy soundcasts...
I'm calling that joke a turkey because I wanted to mention Turkey again. I'm hungry, ok? I'd have turkey off the bone 20 times a year if it were convenient to do so. I already use ground turkey for taco meat and I'll — more occasionally than I would like, mind you — enjoy strips of turkey bacon flaked into a nice pea soup instead of ham. Pea soup is awesome, and fiber is even more important than a sense of humor. Believe me, kids.
SO, How do you find comedy soundcasts? I find them by going to places like Stitcher, iTunes, Soundcloud, Podbay and Laughable.
Laughable actually recommends soundcasts to me based on comedians I'm looking for and has featured comedians that are suggested when I am browsing the app. At least one of the soundcasts featured in this episode was recommended to me by the app and because of the sheer amount of listening to comedy soundcasts I do I really appreciate the suggestions that the app gives me.
I also find soundcasts by listening to soundcasts and the commercials for other soundcasts that might be heard before, mid, and after the main content of soundcasts from certain networks. That's one of the reasons you'll hear soundcasts from the Earwolf network, Starburns Audio, and All Things Comedy so often.
I also try to feature shows that feature people whose names I had not read or heard of before my searching for potential clip material brought their existence to my attention.
So again...how do YOU find comedy soundcasts? No rush to respond, just think about it for a bit and get back to me. In the meantime, we've got clips from: Screams and Moans Returns, Get Up On This, The Aggy Fox and Dana Podcast, Never Seen It, Fat Pig, and The Boogie Monster...
Screams And Moans Returns
Side Note: The movie featured in this episode, Halloween III: Season of the Witch was filmed very close to where I grew up and currently reside. There's a lovely cheese factory in Loleta, the town that stood in for the town called Santa Mira. — TS
Side side note: The intermission skit, "The Nutritionist," was performed by a number of individuals including Succotash Executive Producer Marc Hershon.
Have you ever eaten frosting out of the can? Hidden empty pizza boxes under your bed? Fat Pig is fall-off-the-bone funny comedians Jessica Kirson and Frank Liotti, talking about food addiction, closet eating, bingeing, diets, shame, fat camp, and cake. Sometimes touching, often bizarre, always hilarious, Fat Pig is a wild ride from start to finish, diving in and pigging out on Americaís biggest addiction, food. The episode description we took this clip from simply reads: Maya Angelou, mayonnaise, and Betty White's tits, and it's from the "Fart Porn" episode from March 14th, 2018.
Get Up On This
Never Seen It
The Aggy Fox and Dana Podcast
The Boogie Monster
Well...that's about that. As I record this, the mid-terms have passed and I would not be surprised if there's AT LEAST 2 more years of conflict between The Government AND The People...Honestly it's not a new thing. People have been criticizing politics and politicians for a long time, not always constructively...But it is their right to do so and that's, I guess, the point. It's the violence and hatred that gets to me. That's why comedy is important to me...it's a break from the drama...and if not always a break it is at least a release of tension to be able to laugh at something.
Listening to soundcasts reminds me that people are still getting along, having conversations AND laughing about the strangeness that is the human condition...at least that's what it seems like to me.
So, for Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, and Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I wish you a continued Happy Hallowanksgiving ...on into Thanksgiving Proper...or whatever else you might celebrate this November as long as you aren't hurting anyone. AND, if you would consider sharing this program with people who might enjoy it I'd be forever grateful, for that is what we are hoping to accomplish when we say "Please, Pass The Succotash"!
