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. Welcome to Epi 327 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I am your host for the duration of this program and I've got some clips for you…as this is a "clips" episode of Succotash.

Last week in Episode 326, Executive Producer and creator of this 11+ years-old soundcast, Marc Hershon, sat down with returning guest Dana Carvey to talk about his upcoming soundcast "The Weird Place" amongst other things. It's a pretty entertaining time as always, and you can still find that episode to listen to over at our homesite www.succotashshow.com or wherever you might usually find the soundcasts you listen to, including where you found us…assuming that you found us at Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Deezer, iHeart Radio, and even Spotify apparently.

But, that was last episode, and this is this episode, and this episode has clips from various soundcasts from around the internet, specifically Add to Cart, I, Podius, and 2 Spooky 2 Handle. I've also got a classic FAKE advertisement from our faithful, longtime FAKE sponsor Henderson's Pants for you that has proved to be pretty evergreen…somewhat unfortunately in spots. I will let you decide for yourself what those unfortunate spots are.

Alright, without further delay, let's get to the clips…

Add to Cart with Kulap Vilaysack & SuChin Pak
I think this is the first soundcast I've clipped from Lemonada Media. "Here's what the show's official description has to say: Join the hosts of Add to Cart, comedian-writer-director Kulap Vilaysack and veteran journalist SuChin Pak, in a subversive take on consumerism. Each week, they have honest, revealing (sometimes TMI) conversations about all the big and little things they’re adding to, or removing from, their carts. They decide what's worth the monetary/emotional investment, and what's not. From beauty products and health trends, to celebrities and philosophies they’re passionate about, our hosts dig into anything we buy into and what it says about who we are." This clip is from the recently aired episode that dropped on September 27th of this year, entitled "Add to Cart: Baby" And host Ku has some personal news. With a full heart (and cart), she’s getting ready to welcome home a new member of the family! And of course, she’s sharing what’s in her cart for this life-changing occasion. (Please note, Add To Cart contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.)

I, Podius
A twelve episode weekly series, I,, Podius, featureshosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recapping the BBC miniseries I, Claudius, an adaptation of Robert Graves’ "I, Claudius" and "Claudius the God". The gimmick? John's watched the show before. Elliott's watching for the first time. The miniseries features an obscenely talented ensemble cast, and is chock full of sex, backstabbing and murder. This ain't your daddy's I, Claudius!. Well, actually it is as the series premiered in 1976. But this ain't your daddy's I, Claudius-based podcast! Parental discretion advised. Our clip is from the very first episode, "A Touch of Murder"/"Family Affairs", which dropped back on February 17th of 2020 - just about a month before all the COVID trouble started.

Earwolf Presents: 2 Spooky 2 Handle
From the show's description: "
Are you tingling 4 terror? Slutty 4 slashers? Freaky 4 fright?! Mano Agapion and Betsy Sodaro are bringing you their classic, stupid love of all things horror all month long to Earwolf Presents! There will be possessed dolls, haunted houses, updates from your favorite monsters, and the ultimate villain showdown in our March Madness style SCARY BOWL! Follow @Earwolf on Twitter for more #2Spooky2Handle updates!" This clip hails from just back around the corner a few weeks - October 6th of this month, to be exact. It's called "Ghost Haunting is Like Dating". In the first episode of this special spooky series, hosts Betsy and Mano buy a possessed doll to haunt Earwolf Studios, check in with their favorite monsters (featuring Lauren Lapkus), and decide on the ultimate villain in the SCARY HORNY BOWL.

And there it went, the last episode of Succotash.

That I will be hosting.

Before Halloween 2022. Because the next time I host it will be into November. Recently, I released an October Special Non-Sequential episode of Anti Social Show, which I co-host with Hunter Block, and we made a video-only episode specifically for YouTube. It is an exploration of Halloween Themed A.I. art that I generated in advance of our recording. You can find that episode at www.tysonsaner.com or you can go to YouTube and Google my name and Halloween and the show I am talking about should pop up where you can find it.

Next week in Episode 328, Marc will be back to bring you something else to listen to that is most likely to be entertaining in some way to you. In the meantime, if you liked what you heard from us, there is a LOT more hearing to be had…or heard…in our back catalog. It goes back 11 years. You might also consider giving us a decent review in whatever format your particular listening platform makes available for that specific function.

And hey…if someone asks you if you have heard anything good or interesting lately, and either of those stipulations makes you think of us…won't you please pass the Succotash?
