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.

Kind of unbelievable - 300 EPISODES! This jumbo-sized installment of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, is being perpetrated jointly by your co-hosts Marc Hershon and Tyson Saner, and features a lot of us yakking back and forth about this show's 11 years of bringing you clips from soundcasts and also many, many interviews with comedians, and soundcasts, and comedian-soundcasters.

We each selected three "moments" from the stockpile of shows, including:

• The opening few minutes of the second Succotash test show, before there was a theme, an announcer, or even Henderson's Pants.

• Guest Phil Leirness meeting Bill Heywatt for the first time, live at Stuido P, and participating in a memorable Boozin' with Bill segment.

• A clip from 2013, and the Smodco Smorning Show, which was the first snippet that Tyson ever snipped for Succotash, which led to him becoming first honorary associate producer, then associate producer, and then his ascension to host.

• The first time Marc had Tyson on the show as a co-host, and a clip from a soundcast host by Nardwuar, the Human Serviette, and his guest Japp Blonk.

A slice from Episode 173, during the stretch where Tyson had taken the reins as the fulltime host for the show, and his guest Hunter Block, longtime fan, friend, and supporter of Succotash

• With the last clip coming from a LIVE Succotash show from Los Angeles, featuring Marc hosting, with guest Dana Carvey, his sons Dex and Tom, and Wayne Federman.

Marc and Tyson talk about the past, the present, and the future…where it turns out that Succotash probably isn't going to sound very much different than it does today. The show, as usual, brought to you by Henderson's Pants, featuring their new Parachute Pants.

Thanks to those who have been with us for all, part, or even one show through all 11 years. Please remember to rate and review the show on Apple or Google Podcasts, and go ahead and subscribe if you're not already doing that.

The next time anyone asks if you're listening to anything good, won't you please remember to pass the Succotash?
