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.

Happy holidays, sweet listener! It’s hard to believe there are just a few scant weeks left in this shitbag of a year. Marc Hershon here, and I’m coming to you today from Studio N, the Nerd Nook extension of Studio P, the Home of the Hit, in Sausalito, California. You’re listening to Episode 283 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.

Before I get to what’s in store for you on the show, did you have a chance to listen to my inestimable co-host Tyson Saner in last week’s Epi282? He had had a week off – two weeks, really – and, well-rested, he was in fine form! The episode was called “Three On A Whim”, and featured clips from soundcasts F**K My Work Life, Sodajerker On Songwriting, and Rice To Meet You. And you can still get it from any of the usual podspots like Stitcher, Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts, Audible, Amazon, Soundcloud, and a little homesite we like to lovingly refer to as

I was going to go with clips this week myself, but the opportunity arose to have fellow soundcasters and big cheerleaders of this show on as a guest, Dr. London Smith and Cameron Clark! They host — or rather Dr. London hosts and Cameron produces — the Jock Doc Podcast, which we have featured a couple of clips from before, and I was a guest on their show back in May. Before I could ask them to return the favor and be on Succotash, they invited me back on his soundcast. So we went back-to-back just last night, with me guesting on the Jock Doc Podcast – recording an appearance that will play in the near future – and then London and Cameron appeared on this here soundcast, which is brought to you this week by Henderson's Pants new Jingle Drawers!

Here are some of the soundcasts that London and Cameron mentioned on the show, with links in case you want to check 'em out: Dead Waves, Truthcast, Bald Talk, and Chase Your Enthusiasm.

Always fun hanging out on the Jock Doc Podcast, so it was a fun treat to have those guys hang out here for a bit. The episode of their show I will be appearing on as Dokter Andrew Minutiae, amateur nano technology expert, is slated to drop on January 10th. If you forget that, don’t worry – I’m sure to mention it again!

Tyson Saner will be back in this very same feed next week with episode 284 and some early Christmas presents for you in the form of comedy soundcast clips!

I’m off to get some holiday shopping in, which means I have to dig up my mask. I’m in California where they’re putting an indoor mask mandate back in place this week through the middle of January. Glad I’m vaxxed and boosted– are you? If not, why not? Don’t let a rampant, virulent disease disrupt YOUR holiday this year. So mask up, vax up, and say hello to friends you know, and everyone you meet. Remember, if anyone asks if you’ve heard anything good lately, won’t you please pass the Succotash?
