Saluton! It is once again I, Tyson Saner. I'm still your host for this curated assortment of audio content from various locations around the globe and, if you are still listening, then I am still grateful and I wish you a warm "Welcome Back".

If you are listening for the first time...then simply "Welcome." And glad you found us!

We're brought to you this time around by Henderson's Pants Toddler Trau, the stylish pants for those who have just learned to walk. 

In this installment, I've got some interesting selections for you this episode. We've got clips from R U Talkin' R.E.M. RE: Me?, The Goon Cast, Unladylike, Food To Watch Films By, Pretending With Dice, and Unspooled.

We've also got a double dose of raging moderate comedian and social commentator Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segments...in fact, we're leading the show off with our first of two B.O.D.'s…

CLIPS

Unspooled
From the iTunes show description: Paul Scheer is a lifelong movie buff, but he's never seen many of the all time greats. On Unspooled, his team-up with film critic Amy Nicholson, he's remedying that by watching the AFI's top 100 movies of all time. On episode one, Paul and Amy jump straight into the AFIís number one film of all time, Citizen Kane. They explain why it was almost never released, take a closer listen to Orson Welles' innovative use of sound, and try to answer the big question: Is this really the best movie ever? Plus: an interview with a guest expert, cinematographer Steve Gainer, on why Citizen Kane looks so incredible.

Pretending With Dice
The iTunes Show Description: Tabletop Gaming/RPG Podcast, hosted by Adam Johnston. Playing various RPG systems in short story-arcs and one-shots. Expect comedy, some strong language, and a lot of fun! (Adam Johnston previously had a soundcast called Sup Dude that he co-hosted with Nathan Taylor, which ran for 5 years, and whose end was announced just over a year ago, via Twitter, on May 19th, 2017.)

His new Pretending With Dice has just began a new cycle of RPG goodness. Allow me to elucidate. Our clip is from Epi25, comprising an adventure entitled "Yavin Exodus". In the wake of their successful attack on the Death Star, the Rebel Alliance must evacuate their headquarters on the moon of Yavin IV, before Imperial reinforcements arrive. Alderaanian ex-smuggler Klyne is assigned to the flight crew of the freighter 'Close Encounter'. Kortez finds himself flying patrol with a talkative Sullustan, who tries his patience, and meanwhile, on Nubia, Ugnaught droid expert Thnock carries out a daring heist on an Imperial droid factory. Thrilling stuff!

Unladylike
What's going on in this soundcast? Hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin tackle questions through their trademark obsessive research, stories from rule-breakin' ladies and a solid dose of delightful feminist rage. This clip is from thier "How to Buy a Gun" episode, where they explore the fact that women overwhelmingly buy guns for self-defense, but statistics show guns escalate violence across the board. Cristen and Caroline talk with two firearms fans to find out how much that feeling of safety is worth — and what's at the root of women's fear.

R U Talkin' R.E.M. RE: ME?
Director Lance Bangs joins hosts Adam Scott and Scott Aukerman to discuss R.E.M.'s sixth studio album "Green". They get into talk about R.E.M.'s partial reunion in Portland, when Lance first heard of the band, and how Lance began to know the band and start collaborating with them. Plus, Scott and Scott tell us a little bit more about themselves on an episode of "Talkin' 'Bout Me."

Food To Watch Films By 
Join hosts Johnny, Adam, and Pablo on their experiential voyage through the combination of food and films. (As it says on iTunes: "DISCLAIMER: Some foods suggested may not be safe for human consumption, or even legal for that matter. You have been warned...") IN their reality, the world was wiped out at the beginning of the year, apparently, and this clip comes from a "found footage-style episode" where the boys take us their their review of some films of 2018 that were - to them - never released. Movies in clude 'The Commuter', 'Mary Poppins Returns', and 'Day of the Dead: Bloodline'. Look, I don't explain the clips, I just play 'em. 

The Goon Cast
A show featuring New York-based standup comics from around the city, The Goon Cast is hosted by Billy, Joe, and Jay Mac. They're joined in the episode we clipped by comic Jesse Eigner, and they cover a lot of topics - from Harry Potter and Jesse's new allergy, to New York politics and America's draft picks. Our snippet touches on just a fraction of it all. 

And just like that, the show is done. 

I hope you leave this listening experience with at least one new idea of where to listen next when you wish to get your audio fix. I'm off to rustle up some more clips from soundcasts Ive recently heard of, soundcasts Ive known of for a while, and soundcasts I have yet to discover. Maybe even something that's been featured before because...why not?

I'd greatly appreciate it if you might visit www.succotashshow.com or even www.tysonsaner.com if you've any interest in any of the other things I've created during this life. And, of course, I'd like to thank you for being here and if you have any interest in the continuation of this free soundcast I would most gratefully and gently urge you to please pass the Succotash.

Saluton, faithful Succotash listeners, 2nd timers and people just trying out the soundcast app on their phone. Is it Google Play? Spotify? Laughable? Some other thing?

However you listen I'm grateful to you for it.

I'm Tyson Saner and I'll be your host for this clips episode of Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I've assembled clips from a few soundcasts I've enjoyed recently, including Bad Science, In Poor Taste, Vinyl Emergency, Welcome to Television, Defunctland and This Sounds Serious.

We've also got a single shot of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment and a classic Henderson's Pants spot.

Ready?  Let's dig in.

CLIPS

Bad Science
The homesite for Bad Science tells us that they are "breaking down the 'bad science' of popular movies with comedians and scientists." Their second-ever epi features Doug Benson talking with two physicists about Back to The Future. The host is Ethan Edenburg from The Cooties. As they say - "Warning: There will be spoilers." So if you haven't yet seen 1984's BTTF, you might want to skip ahead because here's a clippet from Epi 2 of Bad Science.

In Poor Taste
As is told in word-stylings on the In Poor Taste homesite, "Eric and Sean meet twice a month in a pod floating down the Monongahela River to record distaste for one person to listen to. Will they get sued, cancelled and generally assaulted? Yes. 25 Minutes of goofs, 5 minutes of commercials, 25 minutes of goofs. We have recurring characters, sketches, segments and guests! Also, new things happen! It's a podcast!" OUr sample for you today is from Epi96, which dropped on April 27th, 2018.

Vinyl Emergency
Here's a soundcast that is not a comedy soundcast but touches on a subject I can relate to, due to my earliest experiences with comedy being delivered to my ears through the medium of vinyl records.  here was a comedy section of vinyl for rent from "Peoples Records" here in Arcata and it's where I first discovered the joys of Firesign Theatre and Doctor Demento complilation albums...but back to "Vinyl Emergency", the iTunes description says they "sexplore the thrill of records and music in general, whether examining the recent vinyl resurgence or recalling the first albums that changed our lives. Guests range from musicians and industry folks to avid record collectors and close friends, all with captivating, personal stories involving vinyl." Hosted by Jim Hanke, who is a frequent guest vinyl consultant on Chicago's WGN 720AM, as well as a freelance contributor to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Modern-Vinyl.com, Sock Monkey Sound and various other media outlets since 1994. Our clip is from Epi61 where Mr. Hanke interviews Speech of the musical group "Arrested Development".

Welcome to Television
Longtime listeners may recall the soundcast known as The Angry Chimp.  We played a clip of them back on Epi84, which also featured OG Succotash host-now-executive-producer Marc Hershon, clips of about six soundcasts and an interview with Greg Fitzsimmons. Welcome to Television is a different sort of Soundcast to The Angry Chimp and its iTunes description sums it up this way: "Have you ever been watching TV and thought 'I wonder what three idiots think of this?' Well, you are in luck. Stu, Mick, and Monty take a look at what is happening in TV in Australia and then they speak about that look, hopefully in an entertaining and informative way but more likely in a way that makes you say 'These guys have a show?'" This clip is from their second episode, "Ramjet's Pingas" published on April 26th of 2018.

Defunctland
I have a bit of a fascination with amusement park rides and attractions...particularly dark rides and their designs. That's how I stumbled across this collection of audio entertainment. Defunctland has been a soundcast on iTunes since August 14th of 2017 but my first experience with it as a program was as a series of documentary videos on show creator Kevin Perjurer's YouTube Channel. On the show, Kevin and his guests discuss theme park attractions of the past, present, and future. This clip is from Epi5 from October of last year, and features and interview with puppeteer, artist, and former Disney imagineer Terri Hardin, and features part of a longer story about what it was like working on the spectacular attraction from George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and Michael Jackson: Captain EO, specifically working with the late Jackson.

P.S. Kevin's goal is to re-create these defunct attractions in a virtual space, so the public can get an idea of what it was like to experience them. Defunctland was also featured in an article on SyFy.com which you can find linked here.

This Sounds Serious
This soundcast from Kelly & Kelly is pretty new, from Castbox, an also-new podcast creation company. Are you a fan of the first season of Serial?  Do you enjoy true crime programming, including true crime soundcasts? This is something like that - here is how the iTunes description put it:  "Florida, 2007: A famous local weather man is found dead in his water bed. His brother calls 9-1-1 to report the murder. This sets off a shocking series of events involving cults, boy bands, horses, and mistaken identity. From CastBox and the comedy producers behind Stop Podcasting Yourself, CBC's This Is That, and Dexter Guff comes a story so believable it can't be true." I shouldn't say to much more at this point. Our clip is from the debut episode, entitled "The Call".

Well, it's over. Not for good but for now. That clown in the sky has begun to cry his bizarre painted-on tears but I'm pretty sure it's just from coasting downhill on a bicycle without adaquate eye protection. Like goggles. Regular glasses wouldn't cut it and, well, when's the last time you saw a clown wearing glasses?

Aside from those ones of me on my Soundcloud and Instagram profiles that is?

Never mind. It's a rhetorical question.  The point is I've got no more show for you at the the moment and I'm just stalling for time. I have fun doing this. So for the gang "here" I've been Tyson Saner attempting to bring little bits of the audio parts of the internet to you so that you might perhaps be interested to find these shows on your own. Or ones I haven't discovered yet — and believe me, there are THOUSANDS — I've put that in all caps for emphasis so you know I'm serious.

If you've enjoyed the time we've spent here I'm very glad to imagine that,  it means I'm doing my job.  So until next time I'll bid you a fond farewell and , If i could, remind you to have fun in your life when and if you are able. And if you would also remember to please,  pass the Succotash.

Yes, for all intents and purposes it is I, Tyson Saner. Your host for THIS episode...and a few before it...  but this one is different.

As you may or may not have noticed from the episode title this week, it's a chat episode.

I've been fortunate enough to snag an interview with Davian Dent of both The Bitter Sound and the oft-clipped-for this show Strange Times. Long-time listeners of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, might recall that Mr. Dent is, in fact had been a guest on this program waaaaay back in 2014 in Epi85, subtitled "Delvin' with Davian Dent", when the show was still hosted by our esteemed Executive Producer, Marc Hershon.  The show was still called "Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast" as well.

Ah, those were the days.

There's more of this interview than you're going to hear in the show — I've left it off  because I'm trying to avoid a two-hour runtime for the episodes that I'm editing.  I had a great time chatting with Mr. Dent and I even had the chance to appear on his show Strange Times in episode 259 called "Dog Egg" for reasons I wasn't aware of until I listened to show from the beginning.

Our announcer, Bill Heywatt, appeared on episode 257 of Strange Times. (I should point out that, although it was listed as "episode 257", the audio is actually from an episode of one of Mr. Dent's soundcasts called The Blank Planet from 2015.

I've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's timely Burst O' Durst segments.  I play them throughout this episode and give them their proper introduction with some great public domain stock music I picked out myself.

Just follow the assorted links sprinkled into this blog entry in order to hear the material I've been referencing. (If you're not SEEING links, you may be readin gthis entry somewhere other than our homesite, at http://SuccotashShow.com. I invite you to visit us directly to enjoy the full, internet-linking experience!)

I'd like to extend my gratitude to Mr. Dent for being a supporter of Succotash over the years.  I'd also like to thank YOU, the listener who has listened faithfully as time has marched on and also to those who have clicked on the Amazon Banner at the head of our page at SuccotashShow.com to donate simply by shopping as you normally would.

I am eternally grateful that you spend time here with us and, until next time, this is Tyson Saner for Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, and — for this episode — Davian Dent, gently reminding you to please...pass the Succotash.

Indeed it is I, Tyson Saner. Your host and Soundcast Sommelier for the evening. Enticing your earbuds with a selection of fine soundcast content and extending the invitation to taste just the tiniest amounts before making a decision on whether or not to listen to more of what these various creators have seen fit to upload and share with whomever makes the decision to listen to them.

This episode I've got clips from Bunny Ears, Popternative, Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast, Stoned Science, How Did This Get Made? and Judge John Hodgman.

We've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O’ Durst segments and this episodeis brought to you by Henderson’s Shoplifter’s Pants.

I'd also like to point out that one of the ways you could be listening to us now is Spotify! Yes, we've added yet another place you can find us and potentially pass us along to someone else in need of a soundcast experience who may not know where to start.

CORRECTIONS DEPT.

Hannibal Buress (whose soundcast, Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler, I clipped for epi167) was kind enough to reach out on Twitter to thank us for "the plug" and to let us know that Handsome Rambler is not part of the Earwolf network anymore. It is now independent and you can find the show at http://hannibalburess.com/podcast/. Thank you very much for the correct information, Hannibal. My apologies.

CLIPS

Bunny Ears
Here's a soundcast that was recommended by Korey Epps, former host of The Evil Teddy Bear Podcast. Hosted by former child star MacCauley Culkin and his friend Mat Cohen, Bunny Ears, a brand new soundcast as of the beginning of this year, is described as a “weekly discussion of things and stuff and things,” according to Apple Podcasts. It also features guests. This was clipped from the appropriately titled premier epi, called “The First Episode of this Podcast”.

(Side Note: I was a guest on an episode of Evil Teddy Bear a few years back but I can't seem to find it online at this time.)

(Side Side Note: I'm happy to say that Korey Epps is launching a new podcast this year called The Korey Epps Show and was very recently a guest on epi49 of another soundcast I co-host with Hunter Block called The Anti Social Show.)

(Side Side Side Note: I've got news for you, he's likely to be on epi50 as well…)

Popternative
According to Apple Podcasts, “Popternative initially began as a podcast in September, 2015. Hosted by Peter Roumeliotis, guests from the sports, social media and entertainment industry joined the host each week and engaged in a digital dialogue about various issues and topics. Popternative’s main quest has always been, and remains, to provide our viewers/listeners with behind-the-scenes digital discussions that they would otherwise have a hard time locating.” Our clip is from an interview with Mike Zapcic of AMC’s Comic Book Men on AMC.

Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast
The Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast is a collection of hilarious and original skits brought to you by NYC stand-up comedians Joe Powell and Ryco Newton-Block, according to the show’s listing at iTunes. Each episode is filled with absurd characters, outrageous storylines, and hysterical parodies. This podcast has 5-star ratings across the board; we don't even know what 4-stars looks like. This clip is from Episode 5: "Of Beavers and Bransons" and is as fresh as last week, when it was plucked from the soundcast vine. Tune into the Jesters and you're guaranteed to be laughing throughout. Enjoy!

Stoned Science
Comedians Kimberly Congdon & Sara Weinshenk sit down to explore the depths of science over cannabis selections on Stoned Science. Laugh with them as they explore subjects ranging from sex to artifical intelligence in-between joint hits. This clip we’re featuring is from their episode posted February 18th, 2018, called "Lucid Dreaming".

How Did This Get Made?
This is one of my all-time favorite soundcasts. I've been a listener since the first episode dropped in, I believe, 2010. As described on iTunes: “Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it's amazing? Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas want to hear about it! We'll watch it with our funniest friends, and report back to you with the results.” This clip is from epi171, released September 15, 2017, and features actor Chris Geere of You’re the Worst joining Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the 1987 martial arts film Miami Connection.

Judge John Hodgman
Way back when, John Hodgman had a show called “Today in the Past" which then became a podcast now called The Judge John Hodgman Podcast. The official show description reads., in part, “Have your pressing issues decided by Famous Minor Television Personality John Hodgman, Certified Judge. If you'd like John Hodgman to solve your pressing issue, simply email it, along with your phone number, to hodgman@maximumfun.org. THAT IS ALL.” Featuring Maximum Fun’s Jesse Thorn as the bailiff, this clip is from epi359 “Beyond a Reasonable Bout.”

(Side note: As I was writing the details down of this show as I do for every episode of Succotash, The Comedy Souncast Soundcast, I couldn't help but notice that for some reason, Mr. Hodgman has blocked our @SuccotashShow Twitter account, and I have to say I have absolutely no idea why. I can only imagine that it was accidental. At any rate, if you'd like to contact @Hodgman on Twitter to ask why on our behalf, let us know what he says…)

DONE FOR NOW

And with that, I've exhausted my current supply of Soundcast clips from all around the internet. Mostly I use Podbay and Laughable to listen but I'd be very curious to know where YOU listen to us, and WHERE you listen to us.

FYI, I usually listen to soundcasts when I'm doing manual labor of some sort. If my life included a long, near-daily commute then that's where I would probably listen. Most of you listening by now should know that you don't have to stay in one place or be inactive while enjoying this or your favorite soundcast and if you didn't know, then you do now.

Also I've got my first "Succotash Chats" coming up for the next episode and I've got to start editing that now. Of course, that's MY "now". I could be done with that part of the deal by the time you hear this. It could already be posted. Well, you do understand how time works don't you? It keeps moving forward for all of us, until…it doesn't.

So, If you've enjoyed yourself here, remember: You can now find us on Spotify for another place to enjoy us. If you'd like to help the show offset server costs, you can hang right here on our homepage and either click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page, shop as you normally would, and a percentage of the money you spend goes to help us. Or click on the Donate button up there if you don’t want to buy anything. And every little bit helps...

So if you do enjoy this free entertainment and wish to hear it for years to come, I would gently remind you again to please, pass the Succotash.

Saluton and Ahoy-hoy Soundcast Enthusiasts and Accidental Listeners Everywhere! I am your host, Tyson Saner...it is my real name...and we can talk about nominative determinism another time. As for now... 

We've got clips from Tuesdays With Stories!, Ding Dong Chomp, The Van Buren Family Roadcast, Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler, a special clip of Strange Times featuring our esteemed announcer, Bill Heywatt, and Prinze and The Wolf.

We've also got a single Burst O' Durst from political comedian and social commentator Will Durst for you this show and of course, what would an episode of Succotash be without a classic Hendersons' Pants commercial? That question answers itself…

And please stay tuned until the end for a BONUS snippet, won't you?

CLIPS

Tuesdays with Stories!
Our first soundcast featured is one of several at Stand Up NY Labs and it is called Tuesdays With Stories! The show first appeared on iTunes, September 3rd of 2013, and the description reads: A fun weekly podcast hosted by NYC comedians Joe List and Mark Normand who have an endless amount of funny stories. Every week they spin a few hilarious yarns, sometimes with comedian friends. This clip is from recent Epi238 from last month and is entitled "Snazzy Cock", featuring a snippet of a longer conversation about being a comedian and the ebb, flow and type of attention after your Netflix special airs.

Ding Dong Chomp
Recently announced on Nooner, the long-running weekly live-on-Tuesdays soundcast on Kevin Smith's "Smodcast Internet Radio", Ding Dong Chomp has spun-off and is hosted by @MartyYu and @StephenKrueger.  Marty is one of the 2 original Nooner hosts of and Stephen has been a on-again off-again co-host of the show for years. Marty and Stephen are foodies, and have created this show to accommodate their need to talk about food and eating. Our clip is from their 2nd episode which dropped last month.

The Van Buren Family Roadcast 
This soundcast — or "roadcast" — got my attention through Twitter recently. (Which, BTW, is a great way to get my attention as far as the show is concerned, over at @SuccotashShow. According to their description on iTunes: "The Van Buren Family Roadcast is a musico-comedy-goodtimes podcast unlike any other. Brought to you by Boston's favorite funny funk family, the Van Burens, the VBFRC is audio entertainment for the 22nd century. Join PBear, Mr. Pizza King, Keyjay McGee, Max and their wicked talented extended family on a romp through your ears, past your heart, and straight on to your funny bone." I have to admit that it's a pretty great description.  I've listened to most of the episodes by now and I was a bit spoiled for choices when attempting to select a suitable moment of this that also fit between the 3-5 minute limit that our clips usually attempt to abide by.

Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler
Here's a show that was recommended to me by the @Laughable app. Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler is from the Earwolf network (whose soundcasts have been oft clipped for this soundcast) and the snippet we have for you is from Epi51
which hit last month. It features guest Neal Brennan, con-creator of The Chappelle Show and he has his own super cool comedy show Three Mics on Netflix. In addition to comedian host Hannibal Buress, Tony Trimm is in the studio as well, to whom guest Brennan directed the question that kicks off our clips.

Strange Times
Frequent listeners of Succotash will be aware of The Strange Times Show by now, with co-hosts Davian Dent, Kat Sorens, and Samantha Pett. In fact there was a clip of their soundcast in our "The Unfinal Episode", Epi 163 where Executive Producer Marc Hershon announced his (potentially temporary) retirement as host, introduced yours truly as the new host ,and said "Thank You" to a BUNCH of soundcasts and soundcasters who had been very supportive over the years. (I'm embarrassed to say that I did not know that our booth announcer, Bill Heywatt, had begun doing his very own The Bill Heywatt Show as a segment on Strange Times. And when I say I'm sorry it's because I imagine I had been told this by someone, somewhere — and had forgotten about it.  My memory isn't what it used to be, my apologies.)  Anyway, here's a clip that includes an episode of The Bill Heywatt Show from episode 244 published on December 9th, 2017 titled "Ghost Fuckers", along with special guest Dana Lucas.

Prinze and The Wolf
The first five episodes of the Prinze and The Wolf soundcast dropped on iTunes on January 11th, 2017 and they are still going strong with over 70 episodes as of this month. As told to us by the show description on iTunes: "Prinze and The Wolf is a podcast with Freddie Prinze Jr. and comedian Josh Wolf that will cover everything from parenting, to MMA, to pop culture, to gaming. to cooking...you name it! With Freddie's wealth of experiences/stories and Josh's quick sense of humor, no topic is taboo and there are definitely no "safe spaces" on this show." I've decided to clip Epi 1, appropriately entitled "Episode 1...The Beginning".

BONUS CLIP!

High Content
Recently I was a guest on High Content Podcast, a show I clipped in Epi 164, my first episode as host of Succotash. Host Iraj Lopez was kind enough to have me on for a conversation in his episode #33 which dropped just last week. It's just a wee clip for you but don't worry, my answer was pretty long.  I appreciate being asked to be on his show a great deal.

Well, that about does it. Another colorful melange of veggies and bacon for your ears. I do spend a good amount of time looking for and finding soundcasts to clip, from a selection of what is now easily half a million different show available.

Okay, that might be stretching it a bit but the actual number as of April, 2018, has got to be over 100,000. I'm not sure how many of those are comedy soundcasts — I have no way even attempting to have these numbers for you today — but if you do hear this voice from the past in your present, you'll likely know the facts, and that ultimately timing IS everything.

And if, by any chance, one or more of these soundcasts I've featured piques your interest enough that you become a regular listener of it, and if I were to theoretically find out about that somehow, perhaps through social media rather than telepathy or osmosis, then I could rest easily knowing my job had been done, at the very least, successfully. Because now you understand what it is to wield the power to (please) Pass The Succotash!

Tyson Saner here with warm greetings and a friendly Saluton to you: soundcast lovers, listeners, people who are just curious about soundcasting...and people who are listening by accident. I don't know, maybe you walked into a room where someone is listening to us and you were grazed by soundcast earshrapnel. Who am I to say how you should be finding us? No one, that's who.

Except I WILL say that if you do like comedy, soundcasts AND comedy soundcasts, you could take advantage of an extremely useful app called Laughable. It's an app that specializes in comedy soundcasts and soundcasts by comedians.  They've also recently expanded their content parameters and do not limit themselves to only comedy soundcast content. (I personally appreciate that as it is an ongoing goal I have to provide both types of content for Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.) 

And wouldn't you know it? I do happen to have a more or less fresh batch of clippage for your aural consumption…or your hungry-hungry ear-holes. 

We've got clips from: Local To Nowhere (featuring a guest appearance from our esteemed executive producer Marc Hershon), I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam, Swipe Left Swipe Left, The Ralph Report, Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank, and Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp.

We've also got a classic Henderson's Pants Ad and a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment.

CLIPS

Local To Nowhere
"A comedy podcast," Local To Nowhere, "draws on local news headlines to create narrative improv scenes. No city is safe. Hosted by Katie Lassiter and Ryan Fleming. They select a state each episode and read three odd, bizarre, or just plain weird news stories from that locale. They're also joined by one or more guests each installment. After sharing the news stories and then interviewing them, the guest is invited to choose one of the headlines and then the assembled cast performs an improvisational scene using the story as a springboard into some audio lunacy. Epi4 of Local To Nowhere featured Succotash Executive Producer Marc Hershon as the guest. The state chosen was Alaska and the scene involved a story about a boy on the outskirts of Anchorage who had a bear smash through the window of his bedroom.

I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam
Featuring Lisa and Sam, two 47-year-old friends who podcast from the car because that's where they have their best conversations. This clip is from the epi entitled "Yep, We Are Creeping Your Fridge!" which dropped just a few weeks ago. Lisa and Sam enjoyed the "what's in your fridge" pictures and they reveal other podcaster's fridge personalities. The ladies chat about Sam's need for a longer vacation, Lisa's experience with a loud sniffer and why dressing in the dark is hazardous to your health.

Swipe Left Swipe Left
From a note submitted by the hosts, Gavin and Claire: "Swipe Left Swipe Left is a collection of fun, intimate and sometimes excruciatingly embarrassing tales of the things that happen on the road to romance. The podcast combines rich sound-design with entertaining first-person narratives. While there are many podcasts focused on the more serious aspects of modern love and romance - we celebrate the bizarre, ridiculous and often hilarious moments that characteriize the quest for love. This is not social commentary but true storytelling. Each story is a totally unique, but all contain an element of the unexpected."

The Ralph Report
The Ralph Report is a daily show featuring news, pop culture, and current events as filtered through the twisted mind of its host, Ralph Garman. Garman has been co-host of the Hollywood Babble-On Smodcast with Kevin Smith for years but here he's on his own. The show features comedy segments, celebrity interviews, and TV & film reviews along with Ralph's take on what's happening in the world. The clip I play for you in this episode has a description that reads as follows: "It's the first episode of The Ralph Report! Let's talk NFL, Donald Trump and the SAG Awards! With special guest, Jimmy Kimmel!"

Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank
Ari Shaffir's guest in the Skeptic Tank in the clip we're featuring, from epi 295, "Low School", is Adam Eget. Adam runs the world famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. He's also the sidekick to Norm MacDonald on his YouTube program Norm MacDonald LIVE. I think I managed to find a great chunk that is indicative of the 2+ hours of this episode.

Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp
The iTunes description of this soundcast from comedian Tom Rhodes tells us it "is a festival of ideas, knowledge, stories, books & adventures. I have been a comedian for more than 30 years. I travel the world doing comedy. I almost drowned in Thailand, got maced in Paris and had my own late night talk show in the Netherlands. Whenever I can I will share my adventures and knowledge nuggets with you on this Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp podcast. This clip is from epi #246, January 12, 2018. Mr. Rhodes reads from the autobiography of Charlie Chaplin. A book which I have read myself at least once.

That's about it. Remember that where there's smoke there's fire, and where there's peas, carrots, and Lima beans, there's usually succotash. Thanks for passing this latest serving!

Saluton! It is I, Tyson Saner, your Audio-Tour-Guide or something like that.  Come with me, won't you, as we explore assorted points of interest in Soundcastland for the next hour or so.

Friend-of-Succotash Hunter Block sports his new tee

I've got some good ones for you.  There are clips from Launch Left, Raised By TV, Whiting Wongs, Doughboys, Wife of The Party and The Movie Court

In addition we have a single shot of Raging Moderate Will Durst's "Burst O' Durst" (and if you're in San Francisco in the coming weeks, check out http://themarsh.org for tickets and information on his live show The Durst Case Scenario.)

This installment is brought to you by Henderson's Breakaway Trousers, and I thorw in a couple of shout-outs for good measure.

CLIPS

LAUNCH LEFT
This show kicked off their first episode on Halloween, October 31st, of last year. According to the description on the Launch Left webpage: "Rain Joan of Arc Phoenix and Moon Unit Zappa interview extraordinary minds, mavericks, and pioneers in their unique fields. As two women from artistically uncompromising families, Rain and Moon celebrate non-conformists who achieve success by doing it their way, and support "left of center" emerging artists." That is to say...the show features established musicians promoting or "curating" less mainstream musicians.  Their guests are referred to as  "curators" and in this clip from December 26th of 2017 the curator is none other than Moon Zappa's brother Dweezil Zappa, who gives a humorous lesson in tri-tones...

RAISED BY TV
Among my favorite improvisors that I hear on soundcasts such as Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang Bang and Matt Besser's Improv4humans are Lauren Lapkus and Jon Gabrus. They have a soundcast together called Raised By TV which is described on their homesite thusly: "When Jon Gabrus and Lauren Lapkus were growing up, they watched a lot of TV. Like, a LOT of TV. Now adults with minds hopelessly warped by television, they've come together to indulge their shared obsession. On Raised By TV, Jon and Lauren revisit the best and worst TV of the late 80s and early 90s — everything from game shows and TGIF to Oprah and cereal commercials." They recently announced that Season Two of Raised By TV kicks off this April 11th.

WHITING WONGS
Whiting Wongs is described on iTunes as "An honest conversation about race and writing between two people who think very highly of themselves. Dan Harmon and Jessica Gao know they won't solve racism in Hollywood, but they still like to talk about it. Sometimes with guests!" By IMDB, "Jessica Gao is a writer and art director, known for Silicon Valley (2014), Rick & Morty (2013) and Lab Rats (2012). If you need credits for Harmon, perhaps you're listening to the wrong genre of soundcasts. OUr featured cli've clipped episode 4 titled "They invented those finger traps" from November 2nd, 2017 because it is the first episode  that was recorded after people had had the chance to listen and respond to the first three episodes.

DOUGHBOYS
"The podcast about chain restaurants," as the Doughboys listing on iTunes tells us, continuing: "Comedians Mike Mitchell and Nick Wiger review fast food/sit-down chains and generally argue about food/everything. Nick is a writer and actor, known for NTSF:SD:SUV, Matthew Perry's Testimony (Pt.2), and A Christmas Story: Only I Didn't Say Fudge. Mike is an actor and writer, known for The Birthday Boys, Love, and Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special." Guest Bobby Lee  is credited with appearing on 162 episodes of the long-running sketch comedy show MAD TV. I deviate slightly from the norm in terms of presentation for this bit of 'soundcastery", as you'll hear it serves the content of this show better.

WIFE OF THE PARTY
If you listen to comedian Bert Kreischer's soundcast Bertcast on the All Things Comedy network, you might have heard his wife LeeAnn Kreischer appear as a guest in some of the episodes. On January 31st, LeeAnn's very own soundcast dropped on iTunes and the description of Wife of the Party reads as follows: "Wife of comedian Bert Kreischer talks to friends in the mancave about, marriage, family, and what its like to be married to the life of the party." I would also like to point out the delightful "live reads" LeeAnn and Bert do for Bertcast's various sponsors.  As a fan of advertising I'm quite partial to their Blue Apron reads. (Executive Producer note: Attention, @BlueApron: We have advertising slots available on Succotash!)

THE MOVIE COURT
Movies finally get their day in court. Here's the online description of this unique soundcast: "
Overrated classics. Unsung masterpieces. One Prosecutor. One Defense Attorney. And one judge. The Podcast that puts the movies you love or hate on trial, to decide their fate. Once and for all." That's a great description...the soundcast is as though each film was on trial to be sentenced to "movie jail" with amusing results. The Prosecutor is Stephen Krueger, the Defense is Kyle Bornheimer and Ryan (JUST Ryan) is the Judge.The clip Ive selected for you is from the 12th episode posted November 20th, 2015. (They haven't dropped an episode since January 1st of 2016 ... but I'm reluctant to send this show to the Soundcast Graveyard just yet...)

EPILOG

Before I leave you I'd like to give aknowledgement to a couple of soundcasters: First, a shout out to host Steve Owens of Fascination Street - a soundcast I featured in the episode of Succotash before this one.  Mr. Owens has been very vocal on Twitter about having been featured on Succotash and I appreciate it a great deal. (Cheers, Sir, and thank you for passing the Succotash!)

Iraj Lopez of High Content Podcast has also given Succotash a shout out on his 29th and a 1/2 episode of his soundcast. I play it toward the end of this episode. High Content is one of several soundcasts that I listen to regularly.  This is in addition to what might be several episodes of YOUR soundcast when  I'm combing the internet looking for digital bits of corn, bacon or lima beans to incorporate into this succotash that is Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. If I hadn't been a consistent listener of High Content there's really no telling how long it may have been until I heard the kind words Mr. Lopez had for us.

So if you do give or have given the show a mention in your soundcast, don't be shy. Contact me, Tyson Saner, on Twitter @RevT23, Executive Producer Marc Hershon on Twitter at @hershco and the show at @SuccotashShow. That way I'll be able to properly express my gratitude in as timely a fashion as I can.

And that's another in the can... or the pan as it were.  If you haven't been entertained I do hope the lingering scent of bacon is some small comfort.  My thanks to you for listening. I'm grateful each and ever time you decide to spend time with us here. So I'll bid you farewell for now and gently remind you to please pass the Succotash...

Yes, it is I...Tyson Saner. Very grateful that you are joining me, brand new host of this program and pale imitation of former host Marc Hershon. It is a great honor to be entrusted with the keys to the Succotash SoundCast Soundkingdom and I look forward to carrying on the tradition that has been listening to and sampling Comedy (and otherwise) Soundcasts for your own personal variety show, between your ears, in the theater of your mind...

Today I have for you what can best be described as an average amount of soundcast clips.  Six seems to be the magic number but it's certainly not set in stone as long-time listeners of this program can attest to. Soundcasts to look forward to hearing clips from include Fascination Street, Logical Nonsense, Your Mom's House, The Stanley and Branley Show, The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: On The Air, and the High Content Podcast.

We also have a double dose of comedian and raging moderate Will Durst's famed "Burst O' Durst" segments. I am grateful that Mr. Durst has agreed to continue supplying us with his unique take on the politics of our times. You'll be hearing those later in the program. And if you're in or near the San Fransisco Bay Area you will find, on the aformentioned website, dates, locations, and tickets for Durst's latest one-man show: Durst Case Scenario: Mid Term Madness.

And, as always, Succotash is sponsored by Henderson's Pants.

As the associate producer of this show, when I was finding clips for this program and sending them off to Mr. Hershon I NOW realize that a few of my contributions over the years may have stretched the definition of "Comedy" a bit.  Sometimes my decision to submit a clip was made by it being interesting or different or having a particular quality about them that I felt made them worthy of inclusion on Succotash.  (I always had backup ideas for clips to submit in case my submissions couldn't be used for whatever reason but to Mr. Hershon's great credit, my submissions were rarely, if ever, unused.)

Now I am completely aware that something "having a particular quality about them" is nebulous at best and nothing if not 100% a subjective viewpoint. Whether or not something is "interesting" or "different" is also, pretty much 100% subjective.  This, of course applies to comedy. Maybe not 100% with comedy but very probably.

Anyway, just something to bear in mind as we explore the highways and byways of Soundcastland together.

THE CLIPS

Fascination Street
It debuted on iTunes on July 3rd, 2017 and it is Hosted By Steve Owens of San Antonio, Texas. Last year, in 2017, Mr. Owens had the good fortune to spend a great deal of time with actor and Hollywood Legend, Clint Howard. There is a two-part episode of Fascination Street that is with Mr. Howard. The clip you are about to hear is from an interview that Mr. Owens had with Clint's father, another Hollywood legend, the Late Patriarch of the Howard family of actors and entertainers, Rance Howard.  According to Mr. Owens, this is the last interview Mr. Rance Howard ever gave.

Logical Nonsense
Here's a soundcast from Ontario, Canada whose 1st episode is listed on iTunes as having been posted in October of 2017.  The description of the show on Soundcloud and iTunes is: "Jab & Breezy take an explicit & comedic look into popular pop culture topics that make no sense to them. Every Tuesday without shame they will share their experiences and opinions while dissecting the nonsense and sharing new mind blowing facts and history that will leave you cry laughing. Follow us to join in our weekly challenges, where J & B compete against each other in a unique contest of wits or might."

Your Mom's House
Hosts Tom Segura and Christina Pazsitsky podcast is part of the "All Things Comedy" network which, according to Wikipedia, "is a digital media co-operative and content creation studio and home to a community of professional comedians. It is the brainchild of comedians Al Madrigal and Bill Burr, founded in October 2012." I previously grabbed a clip of their episode "403" back for Succotash Epi 156 "Boozin' With Bill is Back" from July 29th, 2017 Sometimes they have guest for their program - which is often streamed LIVE on YouTube - this Clip is from episode 435 in which they do not have a guest…

The Stanley and Branley Show
Sometimes a soundcast will have very little biographical information attatched to their pages. The Stanley and Branley Show is one of those soundcasts. The description for the show on both their Soundcloud and iTunes page reads as follows: "Welcome to the worst call-in show you never heard." So far they have 60 episodes with several mini or bonus episodes and they've been posting on iTunes since May of 2016.  This clip is from episode 60, published February 13th 2018, and in it Stanley and Branley listen to dating advice from a YouTube video. If you want to hear more of these mysterious Soundcasters you can go to the aformentioned Soundcloud or iTunes.

The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: On The Air
If you pay a visit to the Los Angeles Breakfast Club homesite, you will see the cheerful sentiment "Making Los Angeles a better place since 1925".  In case you have never heard of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club - or the LABC for short - you can also read the description of the club there OR listen to this epi of Succotash, during which I will read it to you. On February 28th, 2017 the Los Angeles Breakfast Club : On The Air soundcast debuted.  As described by host Phil Leirness in this same episode, "for many decades, The Los Angeles Breakfast Club was a fixture on the Radio" and on the soundcast Mr. Leirness called it a "return of sorts to the days of yesteryear..." The show features interviews, newsreel clips, a selection of musical interludes from throughout the near-century the LABC has been operating and various speakers who share their experiences and generally have a good time. Succotash's very own former-host-turned-executive producer, Marc Hershon, began announcing duties for this program in its 6th episode, published July 1st, 2017.

High Content Podcast
I became aware of this show as I was looking for soundcast-related gigs on Craigslist.  I happened across an ad from someone looking to start a soundcast who was seeking a co-host.  That someone was High Content Podcast's host, Iraj Lopez, who dropped his first episode on Soundcloud back in June of 2017.  Since then he has released episodes consistently, occasionally with co-host Joe Buratti, guests such as Ariel Robinson and comedians local to Humboldt County where this soundcast is based, including Joshua Barnes, Jessica Grant, and Matt Redbeard.  Also featured in the episode with Matt Redbeard was Chris Durant, the co-creator of Savage Henry Magazine - a well-known humor publication in Humboldt County that sponsors many comedy events throughout the
year including a comedy festival every Labor Day weekend that had its sixth iteration in September of 2017. The show's topics range from pop culture, politics, science, nature and what is both frightening and exiting about humanity.  When there isn't a co-host or guest the show features host Iraj Lopez brainstorming ways to improve the world and various "what-if" scenarios. Our clip is from
Episode 27, entitled "I want to boil a gallon of cum," posted on Feb 18th, 2018.

Well, that about does it.  It's been a sort-of-but-not-really maiden voyage.   I'd like to thank Kenny Durgess, Will Durst, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, Bill Heywatt, Henderson's Pants and of course our Executive Producer Marc Hershon for their support and contributions to this episode and EVERY episode of Succotash that came before I had even heard of the program back when Mr. Hershon started posting episodes in March of 2011.

I hope you will continue this journey of discovery with me and I look forward to continuing to bring you this "Whitman's Sampler" of soundcasts from all around the world where they record in English.

For everyone here I bid you farewell and gently remind you to please, Pass the Succotash...

Ho ho ho, yes it’s me, Marc Hershon. Host and nerf herder for Epi161 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. This is a full-on Succotash Clips episode, with a couple of extra treats in store, as befits the holiday season.

First up, gotta couple of like dates coming up. This very show has been invited to get onstage in the upcoming 17th Annual San Francisco Sketchfest once again. We’ll be at Piano Fight in the Tenderloin on Sunday, January 14th, at 5:30 PM. Our announcer, Bill Heywatt, will once again be live for this show and we’ll have some special guests. So special I don’t even know who they will be yet – gotta wait to see who’s hanging around from the Sketchfest as we get closer to the date.

Admission is FREE but space is limited, so you can click here for your free tickets!

Then a week later, at that same SF Sketchfest but at a different venue – the historic, magnificent Castro Theater - they will be doing a tribute screening of The Foot Fist Way, starring Danny McBride and directed by Jody Hill. It’s a hilarious low budget movie if you haven’t seen it, McBride’s first starring role – since he and Hill co-produced it, he had an in, you see. And both of those guys will be on hand and onstage for a live chat which I am honored to have been asked to moderate. That's on Sunday, January 21st, at 8 PM. So get over to SFSketchfest.com or, again, I’ve got the direct link to tickets right here.

Also don’t forget that I’m working with Phil Leirness as the announcer on his less-than-a-year-old soundcast Los Angeles Breakfasts Club ON THE AIR. The December edition is up now and you can download ‘er from iTunes or from the homesite: http://LABreakfastClub.com.

But now onto THIS show.

Here’s the deal with this installment – the clips we’re playing were all pretty much harvested by our Associate Producer Tyson Saner for a show I was GOING to do back in October as a crossover episode with the guys from the Monster Party soundcast — Matt Weinhold, Larry Strothe, Shawn Sheridan and James Gonis. But Matt ended up having back surgery the week I was going to be in LA and we couldn’t pull the thing together.

So before these clips start growing mold on them – or the digital equivalent – I figured we’d just do a Succotash Clips where we just play snippets from comedy soundcasts that are horror and sci-fi movie oriented.

We’ve got The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, CadaverCast, Comedy Film Nerds, the Universal Monster Cast and The Star Wars Minute. Plus I’ll throw in a clip from Monster Party just give my pals over there some guilt feelings.

In addition there's a Burst O’ Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. PLUS a visit to the Studio P wet bar in a new Boozin’ with Bill where Mr. Heywatt is going to mix up an unsavory tribute to Washington D.C. called the Swamp Drainer!

And, of course, this whole magilla is brought to you Henderson’s new Holiday Pants.

THE CLIPS

Monster Party
Here’s a clip from the show responsible for this particular clip collection, Monster Party, and it's actually one of my favorite soundcasts. (You can tell because even with all the shows I have to listen to for THIS show AND my Splitsider.com reviews, I actually subscribe to this one!) This is from their latest drop, featuring a past guest to this show as their guest, and real life friend Rick Overton. The episode is entitled “Future Past” and looks at the future as depicted in films from the past. In this clip, the guys are going off about the way Star Trek thinks we might be going.

Comedy Film Nerds
We love Comedy Film Nerds with Chris Mancini and Graham Elwood. In fact I just featured my chat with Chris from the recent Los Angeles Podcast Festival on our last episode. And while they don’t feature strictly sci-fi, monster, and horror movies on their show, they ARE pretty heavily into those genres. Back in their episode 384, the guys – along with guest Kevin Avery - get into a low budget crazy little movie called Dave Made A Maze, where they get into a little aside about none other than Rick Overton, who was just heard on the previous clip. Man, this show is getting’ meta!

The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast
The next clip is from a very specific genre soundcast. The show is called The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast (although at their homesite their logo says it’s The Sci-Fi Movie AND TV Podcast…), hosted by Remi Lavictoire and Jonathan Colbon, a couple of film geeks from Canada. This clip is from a recent episode where they were getting into War for The Planet of the Apes. They’ve been around for a few years, so you will no doubt find their show propagated throughout Soundcast Land.

Cadavercast
Next up is a clip from a show that Tyson says is “delightful” called Cadavercast, a Father-Son Monster Movie Podcast. The hosts are a Dad, Jef Burnham, and his 5-year-old son Alistair. And with a 5-year-old behind the mic, trust me when I saw a horror movie soundcast has never been more adorable.This clip is from their Epi30 where they get into one on of my all time faves, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. Their homesite is actually just up on Soundcloud, and you can find the show on iTunes and other places you might expect to find soundcasts.

Universal Monsters Cast
There’s soundcast for specific movie genres, like monster movies, say. But then there are shows that get into sub-genres, too – such as the Universal Monsters Cast. First of all, I like that they just call it a “cast” instead of using the “P” word. Our associate producer really likes this show – says the hosts — Gillman Joel, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh — really stay on track with the discussion which, in this case, is all about The Mummy. In this clip, its about how Hammer Films treated the character, which came from the Universal corral of monsters.

The Star Wars Minute
One of the best-known and longest-running sci-fi soundcasts around has got to be The Star Wars Minute. It set the bar for micro-genre casts, in that Pete the Retailer (aka Peter Bonavita) and Alex Robinson decided to break down Star Wars in the geekiest way imaginable – devoting each episode to ONE MINUTE of the movie, from beginning to end, including the closing credits. And they’re been working their way through the entire franchise. Currently blazing their way through Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, they are up to minute 18 with guest commentator Chrysanthe Tan, a very talented musician/composer with, clearly, a streak of geek.

BOOZIN' WITH BILL

Here's Bill's latest recipe, Swamp Drainer, and after you try it you'll be asking yourself the same question I asked myself: Why?

That's going to do it for Epi161 but before this clog ends, I have a question for you and, please, answer honestly: Have you been up to the podcast section of iTunes – that’s what they call soundcasts, of course — have you been up there to rate and review the Succotash Show? Of course you haven’t.

I don’t blame you.

No, wait. Yes, I do.

But you can correct that easily enough by jumping up there right now to give us 5 stars and a short, pithy review. It really helps to get the word out there because our listing pops up higher in the pages and pages of soundcasts.

If you’re in San Francisco during January don’t forget about our dates at SF Sketchfest and you can grab FREE tickets for the Sunday January 14th LIVE Succotash Show at 5:30 PM by clicking on the link up above.

Hope to see you around. And, as always, thanks for passing the Succotash!

Yes, it’s me, Marc Hershon. Host and haberdasher for Epi160 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.It’s been a couple of weeks since we last dropped a ‘sode. Apologies, but life gets busy. Suffice to say we’re back. 

And we’ve got a bit of a mixed bag so it’s kind of half Succotash Clips and half Succotash Chats this time around.

On the Clips side we have a couple of snippets uploaded to us by soundcasters themselves. A bit of a show called Nothing's Good and another from a soundcast called Pretty Gross. 

Over in the Chats department, I’ve got some interviews leftover from the 6th Los Angeles Podcast Festival that took place I nearly October. Chris Mancini, one of the co-founders of the Podfest, Jonathan Sadowski and Travis Clark from the Quick Question soundcast, Murray Valeriano from the Road Stories soundcast, and Chris Gore, who stopped by and we did kind of a simulcast – the interview has already been heard on his Film Threat soundcast.

In addition, we have a double dose of our Burst O’ Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. Get over to http://WillDurst.com to get a line on Durst Case Scenario, his one man show that’s been extended, playing every Tuesday night at the Marsh Theater in San Francisco. And also where he’s headlining with his comedy stylings. Plus the Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Show he does every year will be falling into place about now, and you can get times and places where that will be up on his homesite. You can also follow Will on Twitter @WillDurst and on Facebook, too! 

The whole shootin’ match is brought to you by the good folks at Henderson’s Pants, featuring their Turkey Trousers just in time for Thanksgiving. Gobble 'em up!

SUCCOTASH LIVE AT LAST

Before we get further into this episode, I wanted to let you know that Succotash will be having the first LIVE episode we’ve done since this year’s San Francisco Sketchfest. It’s going to be at next year’s Sketchfest, on Sunday, January 14th, 5:30 PM at Piano Fight in downtown San Francisco. I’m not sure which guests we’ll have yet. Waiting to see whose in town that weekend. But I will tell you this – it may be the LAST episode of Succotash, at least in it’s current form.

CLIPS

Nothing's Good
We heard from the Nothing’s Good soundcast when a guy named Adam direct-uploaded their premiere episode to our Hightail link with this note: “Here's the first episode of my podcast. It's a story telling podcast about messed up things that have happened to you. Use whatever you'd like from it.” There’s been about half dozen episodes since the one this clip came from, entitled “Slimy Peaches”. And so far there’s not a lot of information on their homesite. The About link reads: “Stories of failure and regret, by the worlds foremost regrettable failures. A storytelling podcast of things gone awry.”

Pretty Gross
Grabbing another clip out of the Hightail direct upload bucket. This time we have a chunk of a relatively new show, call Pretty Gross, hosted by Alyssa and Kayla. Here’s the note they included: “Hey there! Here's a clip from Pretty Gross, episode 2, "Google It!: A Pretty Gross Halloween Special." In it, Alyssa & Kayla talk about their recollections of learning about womanhood, and how they don't want any of those questions answered by their moms. Enjoy!”

That’s going to do it for epi160 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. The next installment is going to feature a bunch of clip from horror and sci-fi movie soundcasts. Associate Producer Tyson Saner and I had harvested like 10 clips  which I was going to use for aspecial show with the Monster Party soundcast guys, but that never happened So before these clips pass their expiration dates, I figured we better make use of them.  Until next time, thanks for passing the Succotash.
