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. I am your host this week on Epi261 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for joining me! In case you missed last week's Episode 260, my co-host - and every-other-show-host - Marc Hershon gathered a quartet of clips from the soundcasts Better Off Better, BHHcast, Play With Pain, and Plumbing the Death Star. If you get the chance, I urge you to check that out sometime by looking for our show on Apple or Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and some other places including in the archive at our homesite at SuccotashShow.com.


This episode I've got clips from 3 Girls 1 Kitchen, Strange Times, and Round Springfield. I've also got a fun ad for Passive Aggro Pants from our longtime fake sponsor Henderson's Pants to throw into the mix…because, after all, what would an episode of Succotash be without a segment devoted to a sponsor that we've never seen dime one from because THEY DON'T EXIST!

CLIPS

3 Girls 1 Kitchen
This is a show for the internet age. Filled to the brim with not only food, but a recipe for disaster. Join Lana, Olivia, and Alexa as they talk dating, sex, culture, and interview some of today's hottest celebs. Our clip comes from just last month: June 4th, 2021 and, in this episode, the girls get political and share their views on Caitlyn Jenner running for governor, Lana reveals some major life news, and they discuss how different attachment styles can affect relationships.

Strange Times
I clipped "Gash", the June 29th episode of this weekly comedy & satirical podcast presented by Davian Dent, Kat Sorens & Dom Risk. Davian is out of hospital but quite clearly still under the influence of the industrial-grade pain killers he was prescribed…

Round Springfield
This Simpsons-adjacent podcast is hosted by Allie Goertz and Julia Prescott, interviewing writers, directors, showrunners, and voice-actors from the Simpsons-verse on their various paths to Springfield, failed pilots, other projects, and beyond. Although these guys are still churning out episodes today, we flash back to March 30th, 2015 for "Flaming Moe's" (with J. Elvis Weinstein). Weinstein sets the stage for Allie and Julia on what the world was like when The Simpsons' Cheers-centric episode first aired.

I hope you find something to enjoy or at least find interesting in trhis week's bounty. I'm leaving "funny" out of the conversation because of how subjective humor is. Comedy can be elusive but soundcasts are plentiful. I didn't really have more to that thought, it's just two things that are true next to each other. Not all soundcasts are meant to be funny after all.

Here's a secret: Life isn't meant to be funny. Actually, I have no idea if that's true or not because it implies that life is supposed to have any sort of meaning and I am not the authority on that subject. Life can be very funny and not just strange but also the "ha-ha" variety. 

In the next episode, #262, Marc Hershon will have something for you to listen to…but since that's in my future I have no idea what that something will be except that it will likely be comedy and/or soundcast-related in some way…although it does not have to be. If you decide to listen again in 2 weeks I will be back with something else. Until then, be decent to each other, beware of asymptomatic spread, and if someone asks if you've heard anything interesting lately would you please pass the Succotash?
