Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 12 years ago (April, 2011) 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 with co-host Tyson Saner, booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have been keeping the flame alive o'er these many years.

I’m Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly host and this is episode 252 of The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. But did you catch my partner in clips, Tyson Saner, on last week’s installment? Epi251 featured snippets from a trio of soundcasts: Worst Movies Ever Played, Thought Spiral, and Bob Saget's Here For You. You can still catch it in all the usual downloady spots, like Apple & Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Soundcloud, iHeart Radio, YouTube and our own damn homesite,

I don’t have clips for you this week. Even better, I have an interview with the very delightful Wayne Federman! Wayne’s an old buddy and a friend of the show and he’s just put out a new book, The History of Stand-Up. You can get it pretty much everywhere but click the link above over to where it lives on Amazon.

This is an extra-long episode of the show. These days Tyson and I try to keep these zipping along at about an half-hour so this is more like the old Succotash where we’d go for an hour or more. But Wayne and I were having a good chat and I didn’t want to slice and dice it all up so you’re getting it all. At the far end we have a word from our sponsor, Henderson’s Pants, and their new Wake Island Abbreviated Trousers. And we take a quick dunk in the Tweetsack as well.

If you liked the show, please feel free to jump over to Apple Podcasts to rate and review us in a favorable way. And if you’re a comedy soundcaster and would like to get a clip on the show, hang on for Bill Heywatt’s wrapup to get details on how you can make that happen.

Tyson Saner will be cruising this feed next week with a passle of clips for you. Until then, if someone should happen to approach you and ask if you’ve heard anything good lately, won’t you please pass the Succotash?
