Succotash


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 11 years ago 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.

Saluton, estas mi, Tyson Saner, your host for this episode of Succotash that numbers 282. I had a couple episodes off recently so executive producer Marc Hershon with whom I share hosting duties stepped up to bring you a fresh show, two weeks in a row. Thank you kindly, sir.
The first, Epi280, featured an interview with the hilarious Dana Gould who, aside from being a comedian most of his life and writing for The Simpsons, amongst other credits, has a great web-based series on his YouTube channel called Hanging with Dr. Z, in which he plays Dr. Zaius from the original Planet of the Apes movies now hosting his own TV talk show…click the link and check that out when you get the time.


And for last week's Episode 281, Mr. Hershon brought you a quartet of clips from the never-featured-on-Succotash-before soundcasts known as B3F, Carefully Reckless, Everything is Alive, and The Amelia Project. This is also an episode that you should check out at your earliest convenience.

On this particular installment of Succotash I've clipped three soundcasts for you to experience. They are called F**K My Work Life, Sodajerker On Songwriting, and Rice To Meet You. I've also got an advert from our longtime fake sponsor Henderson's Pants for you sure to raise a ruckus - it's for their RepubliFit Jeans.

So, how have you been? Crazy year right? It's hard to believe another one is almost over…but I tend to feel that way at the end of every week so…that particular shade of incredulity is a familiar sensation for me. I'd say "I don't know where the time goes" but that's not true. I DO know where time goes. It goes away. And while you're pondering that one, here's another thing for you that is also not true:

I believe there are two types of people, people who believe in dichotomies, and people who don't know what they are!

CLIPS

F**k My Work Life
Hosts Jay & Kay (no last names) use this forum to sharing your workplace stories, with a few of their own, so we can all laugh and/or cry together. Our featured clip comes from their recent episode "Podcast Time Travel", which dropped on October 20, 2021. Jay and Kay are all by themselves again this week and they are officially calling out Coors Light to become a sponsor. They're sharing listener workplace stories, along with some of their own, and debuting the new Rant Line segment!

Sodajerker On Songwriting
A program devoted to the art and craft of songwriting, Sodajerker On Songwriting is created and hosted by Simon Barber and Brian O’Connor, AKA the UK songwriting team Sodajerker from Liverpool, featuring interviews with some of the most successful songwriters and musicians in the world. Our clip is from October 14, 2021, a bonus episode with Giles Martin on Remixing The Beatles.

Rice To Meet You
A comedy podcast about Asian culture, Rice to Meet You is hosted by two UK-based comedians - Nigel Ng and Evelyn Mok. Just like Succotash, new episodes of their show drop every every Tuesday. I've clipped from a fairly recent show back in August entitled "We're Becoming White Middle Class People", and our snippet contains a portion of Nigel's visit to Soho Farmhouse, a chic, countryside hotel.

That brings us merrily along to the end of the first episode of December, #282. Next week Marc Hershon will likely have Epi 283 all ready to go for your listening pleasure. In case you DID want to listen to our archive of episodes, you can probably find them on whichever service you are listening to us on now…and you can definitely find them in the show's archive built up over the last 10 YEARS over at www.succotashshow.com.
If you like video games and the concept of watching other people playing them, you can find a LOT of content of exactly that over at my YouTube channel under a collective banner of content called "Tyson Saner: Gamer". Tweet me at @revt23 and let me know if you do become a viewer of that and/or a listener of THIS. If you become a viewer of this - which is made possible by audio-only-aside-from-limited-imagery episodes being posted on the YouTube channel "Marc Hershon" by…you guessed it, Marc Hershon! Any way you find us, any way you experience us, I do hope your experience is an interesting one…like in a GOOD way…Tweet the show at @SuccotashShow and let us know!

Thank you for listening, be decent to each other, and if anyone asks if you have heard anything interesting…or if you independently come to the realization that you would like to volunteer that information to someone you believe would be receptive to it…won't you Please…Pass The Succotash?
