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.

Greetings, listener, and apologies for the late drop this week. I’m Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly host of this here roundup of comedy soundcast clips and sometimes interviews we call Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. This is Episode 307 BUT, due to me being WAY too crazy this past week – my wife and I are in the process of purchasing a home and also trying to work and do soundcast reviews AND draw a weekly editorial cartoon and… Well, you can empathize that I was just too slammed to snip some fresh clips this week. So we’re going to do a good old fashioned throwback or, as they used to call them, rerun from 8 years ago this month. That’s right! June 12th, 2014 was the drop date for Epi88, and I’m going to tell you more about it in just a moment.

But first, if you missed LAST week’s Epi306, served up by my esteemed alternating co-host Tyson Saner, then you missed “Clips from Friends of the Show”, wherein he featured snippets from The JV Club with Janet VarneyThe Writers Panel and The Boogie Monster. Get to it now, won’t you, over on Apple & Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Amazon Music,, iHeart Radio, YouTube, Soundcloud and on our own homesite,

So. Eight years ago or so it was an episode entitled “Sippin’ Clips” and I was crowing about having won a 1st place award from the California Newspaper Publishers Award for my editorial cartoons in the Half Moon Bay Review. First time ever! And in the episode from yesteryear you’re about to hear, I featured WAY more clips than we do now – and Tyson Saner, who had only recently been dubbed Associate Producer of this program, furnished a bunch of those clips.

They came from some shows that are still around and some shows that have…well, gone on permanent hiatus. Some of the hosts of those shows may have gone away as well. In particular, Gilbert Gottfried, as we featured a clip from his very first episode of Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast. In addition to that we clipped from John Dredge’s Nothing To Do With Anything Show, The Jockularity Show, Geeks with Wives & Capes, The Crunch Time Show, What A Pair of Trousers, Old Enough to Know Better, Like I’m An Idiot, and, finally, The Picnic Time Podcast. There are also not one but two segments of A Burst o’ Durst, and – of course – a Henderson’s Pants commercial.

Tyson will be back next week with fresh clips, I promise, for Episode 308 and, in the meantime, enjoy this Succotash Leftovers: Episode 88…
