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! Welcome to this episode of Succotash that numbers 314! If you are new here, thank you so much for listening. If you listened to last week's episode #314 subtitled "Let's All Go to the Movies" you no doubt enjoyed the content featured within that episode which was hosted by Marc Hershon.
Marc, this show's creator and original full-time host, originated this program to showcase the soundcasts of comedy folks and the like for over 11 years now, and for the last 2+ years, since shortly after the COVID-19 Lockdown of 2020, he and I have been alternating weekly hosting duties.
So,…last week, Mr. Hershon brought you a quartet of clips from the movie-centric soundcasts known as But Is It Good, Forever Movie Boys, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong, and They’re Just Movies. It was an entertaining episode that you can still find in our archive at as well as pretty much most places you can find other soundcasts including, but not limited to, Apple or Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Soundcloud, YouTube, Amazon Music, Audible, Podchaser, and PodBay.

This week's episode features clips from the soundcasts: Black Aesthetic, Jeremiah Wonders, and Real Life Sci-Fi.
…and of course, we've got a classic advert from our longtime FAKE sponsor "Henderson's Pants" for you later in the program.

I can't think of a good reason to delay the proceedings any any longer, so let's get to the clips while they are still warm!


Black Aesthetic
The soundcast Black Aesthetic feature Black voices talking Black life, Black Arts and Black culture with Queen Dee, Dellar, Mona Loki and KM Ross. A production of Black Humboldt, a volunteer run organization working to create and sustain safe spaces and representation for Black & Brown community members in Humboldt County, CA. BH achieves this goal through hosting Exclusive events for Black and Brown identities. Our clip is from the episode that dropped on the 13th of October, 2020, entitled "Getting Mental" w/ comedian Joshua Barnes. "Barnes matches his anecdotal wisdom with an “everybody’s favorite dad” charm. He’ll have you rolling in your seats with stories and musings of everyday life. Barnes delivers a commanding performance whether he’s recounting the times his son has shamed him or detailing his beliefs of life’s purpose."

Real Life Sci-Fi
From the show's description: "Real Life Sci-Fi is a comedy podcast. A late night bar conversation about conspiracies, creatures and all things paranormal. Should the world be categorized as fiction or non-fiction? 1 skeptic. 1 believer. 1 woman. 1 guest. I clipped this snippet (or is that snipped this clippet?) from their Epi357 which dropped on June 20th of this year, entitled "Crop Circles With Fred Stoller. (Fred was a guest on Succotash during our first year, way back on Episode 15!) The hosts — Wade Randolph, Willy Roberts, Erin Pearce — continue their conversation with Fred, off the topic of the rest of the show (crop circles - some crop circles are man made. Are all of them? There is some compelling information about some crop circles. Will they get to it?)

Jeremiah wonders…
is a weekly podcast where Jeremiah Watkins interviews guests with some of his favorite original characters and impressions. You never know who's going to call in! We clipped from back in May of this year (this year being 2022, if you happen to have been time traveling…), Episode 231 with guest Nigel Ng (AKA Uncle Roger)

…and that pretty much brings us to the end of the episode for this week. I've only got my wrap-up left to do here which will include some light begging of you to rate and review us if you like what you heard. It really helps us out…helps "keep the lights on" so to speak.

Sometimes it is difficult to believe that it has been 11 years since this show started, and within that time the format known as the "podcast" has experienced a huge surge in growth and…perhaps a stagnation, a decline, a resurgence…you know, I don't really know if the last bits of that are true. I just know that online, podcasts are ubiquitous…can't throw the proverbial digital stone without hitting one…and offline…It seems like they are still kind of lesser known than most other forms of media. Maybe that's not true and I need to talk to more people.
At any rate, THIS podcast - or soundcast as this soundcast refers to podcasts as - has the role of introducing other soundcasts to people who are technically already somewhat aware of their existence…you know what? We've been over this.

I hope something you heard in this program inspires you to listen more, or at the very least has been entertaining. Thank you for listening, be decent to each other, tune in next week for Epi315 hosted by Marc Hershon, and, in the meantime, if someone asks you if you have heard anything interesting lately…or you'd like to proactively tell people about what you are listening to and it has been us…won't you please….pass the Succotash?
