Succotash Shut-In


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched in 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 booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, associate producer Tyson Saner, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years. In 2018, Hershon abandoned the host chair and anointed Saner to the position, with nary a notice from the legions of listeners. Typical.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. I'm your every-other-epi host for the show which is Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package. Last week, Marc Hershon had the helm and brought you clips from 4 "True Crime" soundcasts. As you are reading this you no doubt notice that the words "True Crime" were in quotation marks in that previous sentence…as were the most recent use of those words a few seconds ago… but for different reasons. I use quotes because, although the soundcasts he clipped were "True Crime Themed" (See? Quotes again!), they were in fact all soundcasts that parodied "True Crime" as a genre and "True Crime soundcasts" as a genre…of soundcasts. They were "A Very Fatal Murder", "Done Disappeared", "My Neighbors Are Dead", and "This Sounds Serious" …and I urge you to check out that episode for a taste of all of those. It's episode 219.

But THIS is Episode 220 and I've got clips for you for this episode. The clips I've selected for you are from The Whaley Family HourYou're Dead To Me, and 2 Bears 1 Cave with Tom Segura & Bert Kreischer. I've also got special advertisements from both of our fake sponsors, "Henderson's Pants" and "TrumPoetry.com" as per usual… and we here at Succotash are still on the lookout for a real sponsor just in case any are listening.

And away we go!

CLIPS

The Whaley Family Hour
Spend way less than an hour with Frank Whaley (Pulp FictionMarvel's Luke CageField of Dreams) and Heather Whaley, author of Eat Your Feelings: Recipes for Self-Loathing as they huddle through the pandemic in a closet. OUr clip is from their debut epi back in March entitled "Is This Thing On?"

You're Dead To Me
Touted as, "The history podcast for people who don't like history… and those who do." Greg Jenner brings together the best names in comedy and history to learn and laugh about the past. Our snipped clip is from February 28th of this year, and is called "Mary Shelley", mostly because host Jenner is joined by literary expert Dr. Corin Throsby and comedian Lauren Pattison to explore the often turbulent life of literary icon Mary Shelley.

2 Bears 1 Cave with Tom Segura & Bert Kreischer
Every week, comedian best friends Tom Segura and Bert Kreischer get together in the bear cave at YMH Studios to do what bears do: make each other laugh. Our featured clip is from the very recently dropped epi from August 31st, 2020. During this episode, Tom and Bert discuss Tom getting drunk over the weekend. Bert then shares what his weekend was like, and why he got kicked out of someone's house. They discuss their want to hire a private investigator to be on retainer, their old nicknames, and guys who wear cologne. Tom wraps up the show by sharing a video of him singing to his son.

WRAP-UP

I hope you enjoy this sampling of soundcasts during your extended period of home-dwelling…or any time, really. I hope this show encourages you to find out more about the world of soundcasting from the various sources that you can use to find their shows and, of course, more episodes of our show.

We appreciate your listening. If you are listening to us thru a service of some type that includes audience participation in the form of a ratings mechanism…we'd surely appreciate that as well. Some of us going thru this time of plague together might have accidentally discovered that they enjoy hearing other people have conversations in a totally-not-illegally-surveilling sort of way due to us here at Succotash and I wonder now where that will take you.

Will you be back next week? Will you be on to something else? Will you plumb the depths of our archive at www.succotashshow.com and discover shows that we featured in the last…almost a decade? Will you recommend us to your friends?

We'd appreciate it if you did. That's what we mean when we ask you politely to please, pass the Succotash
