Succotash


Celebrating 10 years this year, Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)

Original show host and executive producer Marc Hershon, along co-host Tyson Saner, booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. Welcome to episode #249 which is the first official episode of Season 5 of Succotash: The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. That's right, it's season 5 and the show is no longer being called "Succotash Shut-In" as explained last week in Episode 248 which was our 10year anniversary show. Featuring Marc Hershon, Joe Paulino, Bill Heywatt, and yours truly in an extra-special conversation-and-trip-down-memory-lane extravaganza! I urge you to check out the episode if you haven't already.

(I would like to point out that during that conversation I incorrectly stated that I had been contributing to "Succotash" since 2012. I looked in the archive and it turns out that I sent in 2 clips that were used in the episode from Apr 30, 2013, entitled Succotash Epi57: Boozin' With Bill (Again) which I will link here: https://succotash.libsyn.com/succotash-epi57-boozin-with-bill-again.)

Oopsie. At any rate, that means in 10 days from when this episode is posted I will have been contributing to this program for 8 years. My apologies for any confusion this may have caused.


This episode I've got clips for you from the soundcasts The Blood Buddies: Horror Podcast, Wack Brackets, and Daydrinking with Gary & Ellio‪t‬. We're also sponsored by Henderson's Parachute Pants 2.0.

Now, let's get to the clippage…

CLIPS

The Blood Buddies: Horror Podcas‪t‬
Come join Brian and David every other Friday to discuss a horror movie based off of a theme from a roulette wheel. Our featured clip is from January 18, 2018, where the guys dissect the opening moment of "It Follows" (2015‪) from director David Robert Mitchell.

Wack Bracket‪s‬
Asking the burning questions you never knew you wanted answered until host Mike asked them. We bring on fellow podcasters and friends of the show to bracket off similar contestants using irrelevant, ever changing questions. Pending FDA approval! This clip hails from Epi58 from April of last year - an episode entitled: "Redneck Events w/Trashy Trashy: Mutton Bustin‪'‬" with guests Erika Curry and Cassandra Cardenes.

Daydrinking with Gary & Ellio‪t‬
A cocktails and comedy podcast featuring American comedy treasure Gary Anthony Williams, home mixologist Elliot Blake, and an entire raft of celebrity guests who stop by Gary's house for a daytime tipple. Every episode has an original cocktail, a funny, unrehearsed, heartfelt chit-chat, and sometimes a second cocktail. Our clip is from their Episode 29 back in January 18th, 2019 with guest Dana Snyde‪r from Adult Swim.

Sidenote #1: This show has not posted an episode since Steely Dan Day of 2020… Steely Dan day, of course is May 19…

Sidenote #2: We llast featured Daydrinking on Succotash Shut-In Epi207 last June.

Well, that's it. The 1st show of season 5 in the can and in your ears…or EAR if it so happens that you only have one. And if you do, I appreciate you taking time to listen to this all the more. Your one ear has to do the work of a person with two ears and I'm not sure if most people that have two ears ever even take that into consideration…so for your consideration I am at LEAST twice as grateful. I think that's how the maths work…I'm pretty sure that's how gratitude works.

This next season of "Succotash" is - as far as I know - is going to be released in the same fashion and with the same frequency of season 4 which is to say every week for the foreseeable future. So, tune in next week for Epi250 when show creator Marc Hershon is back hosting and bringing you content of clippage, chattage, or really whatever he would like to put in his episode.

If you are listening to us through a streaming service of some sort and you'd like to listen to Succotash the moment it becomes available you can subscribe to us. I know that is how it works on Stitcher for example but I'm not 100% sure about the other methods. Could you do me a favor and check on that for me in case I forget to? I appreciate that a great deal. I'd also appreciate if you'd go to www.tysonsaner.com to find links to music, gaming videos, and the soundcast known as "Anti Social Show" which I co-host with Hunter Block. (Recently, Marc Hershon was a guest of "Anti Social Show" for EP91 which is called "Wordlike Objects with @hershco" because that is Marc Hershon's twitter account if you'd like to show him some love there.)

Incidently, if you Google "Sounds By Tyson Saner" it is the easiest way to find "Anti Social Show" OTHER THAN going to the aformentioned website. Of course you can find the show's archive at www.succotashshow.com and feel free to do so. You are almost guaranteed to find something that you will enjoy listening to. If you in fact do, and you'd like to express your appreciation in some way, we would really appreciate it if you would share us with other people. It's what we mean when we ask you to Please…Pass The Succotash…
