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"!
