Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 12 years ago (April, 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 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, your host for this week's installment of Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package. Last week was Episode 225 and host Marc Hershon brought you a pentalogy of soundcast spookiness to hit the Halloween theme in a big way. The soundcasts in question were Ghoul IntentionsSpoop HourThe Boogie Monster, The Paranormal Life, and a clip uploaded to us of a soundcast called Dead Waves. (That show is, of course, still available to listen to at Apple and Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, the Laughable app, and many other places that you might find soundcasts…including our homesite,

This episode is going to be SOMEWHAT Halloween-themed… I'll try to explain how as we go. I've got clips from Candy Dinner with Matt and Ify because that's what you do immediately after trick or treating…you have a candy dinner…in my dreams where I never have a tummy ache, Blood and Black Rum Podcast - A Cult Film / Horror Podcast that is its entire title… I think that choice is self-explanatory, and Spanish Aqui Presents…because Hispanic Heritage Month was Tuesday, September 15th, to Thursday, October 15th, this 2020th year….and Dios De Los Muertos happens before my next episode of "Succotash Shut-In"…so I thought it might be nice to touch on that.

I've also made an early-November-appropriate selection for this episode's contribution from our longtime fake sponsor Henderson's Pants and their oh-so-approapriate Foggy Bottom Britches. I will also be reading something from our newer, 100% Fake Sponsor with the 100% real website that anyone with a computer, or has a friend with a computer, can visit. It's an amazing archive and I encourage you to seek it out and enjoy the quality of it's wit and topicality…if that's a thing…I just "Googled" it, it is…

Let's get this underway, shall we? Thank you for listening.


Candy Dinner with Matt and Ify
Another comedy podcast with two comedian friends, Ify Nwadiwe and Matt Apodaca, rambling. Our clip is from February 10th, 2020, Epi78 "Talkin' Movies". Matt is back and he's fired up about the Oscars! In this clip, the duo discuss ice cream parlors, Rick and Morty fandom, and a little bit about the food at a party Matt recently attended…

Spanish Aquí Presents
From Earwolf, RaizaOscarTony, and Carlos bring you the best of the best of lo mejor of Latinx comedy. Join them as they ask, ¿Que te pica? (What's itching you?), chat with their special guests, and wrap up the show with an improv set that's muy fuego. Guests are Gloria Calderon Kellett Tanya Saracho in an episode clipped from the first day of Autumn of this year. In this clip, the group discussed whether or not incorporating COVID-19 into future media projects is appropriate…and how tragedy inspires and has inspired pop culture.

Blood and Black Rum Podcast - A Cult Film / Horror Podcast 
This is a biweekly podcast from Ryne at and his friend Chris Martin. From their website: "We're talking everything from niche horror genre fare to classic films to video games and comic books. We're an eclectic duo - and that's probably due to the drinking we do while recording. We take breaks along the way to talk about the best beer and liquor we've had that week." Our featured clip comes from March 13th of this year, Episode 163: The St. Patty's Day Special AKA "Leprachaun 5: Leprechaun in the Hood". Side Note: They are drinking Goose Island's Lost Palate IPA this episode.

And there's your last episode before "Super Tuesday". Tuesdays are the show's release date so there will be one dropping on that day and it will be hosted and assembled by Marc Hershon.

I'd just like to wrap by urging you to vote like your life depends on it, because it might. Vote safely by mail if you can, or in person if you must. Avoid the maskless like the plague and report anything that looks like voter suppression or intimidation to the F.B.I. We will get thru this together, one way or another.

Well, that's enough out of me for now. Please share the show with others if you enjoyed it or found it helpful in any way. Sharing is also caring and it is what we mean when we gently urge you to Please… Pass The Succotash.
