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. Dankon, Bill Heywatt for the lovely introduction. I am your host of this week's edition of Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package. It's episode 222 this week.

Last week, Marc Hershon hosted episode 221, "Guestin’ It Up with Pat Kelly & Peter Oldring" and it was a pretty entertaining listen. You can still find it and all of the previous episodes at www.succotashshow.com and of course soundcast streaming services like Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Laughable, Podbay… just to name a few.

But you are here for this week's show and I do, indeed, have clips for you. I've got clips from City Mouse Country MouseThe Bloodybits Horror Show, and Cold Callers Comedy. I've also got an advert from our longtime sponsor Henderson's Pants and their just-in-time-for-Autumn Leaf Behind Pants, and a reading from our other regular sponsor TrumPoetry.com.

CLIPS

City Mouse Country Mouse
Writers Nick Brown and Katherine O'Hara tell each stories about life from the city and life from the country. Our clip is from their debut episode from this past June entitled, appropriately enough, "Episode 1 - In which we introduce ourselves and describe how we met…" The clip is a peek inside a time period slightly later than that. for context, it was revealed early in this episode that host Katherine had recently had an erotic dream about other host Nick.

The Bloodybits Horror Show 
Hosted by Eddie "The Axe" JeffersonThe Bloodybits Horror Show is a weekly discussion about all things horror. Movies, Television, Books, Video Games. We cover the history, behind the scenes, and philosophy of it all. This recent clip is from the beginning of September, where the host and sidekick Faustus are discussing what might be David Cronenberg's best work: Videodrome.

Cold Callers Comedy
Ramblings, utterings musings, debat…ings, mediocre sketches and the occasional uninspiring improv song from Paul Rich & Ryan Brannon of comedy duo/entity Cold Callers. Our featured clip is from their show which dropped August 16, 2020, entitled "Flat Derpers", where the hosts and guest/friend/former Emmerdale Mike Parr talk about "flat earthers" and read their tweets.

And that's where we put a pin in Succotash Shut-In for now. Now all that remains is for you to actually listen to the episode while I do hope we, at the very least,gave you something entertaining to listen to for the last +/- half-an-hour. Please remember to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or anywhere you can rate and review us to let us know how we did. It's been quiet in the old feedback department lately…

At any rate, Marc Hershon will be back for Epi 223 and who knows what he will have in store for you at that point in the future? I am as curious as you are, I imagine. That's really all I can do …is imagine… if you don't say anything…

But honestly, thank you for listening, be decent to each other, and remember: "Asymptomatic spread" is a real thing so wear a mask in public so you don't inadvertently murder someone close to you OR otherwise. Because, really, you can't count on that sort of thing only affecting a stranger, and in general you should care about them too because misery in the world is already plentiful, so why add to it?

Oh, and remember to PLEASE pass the Succotash.
