Succotash


Celebrating 10 years this year, Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 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 co-host Tyson Saner, booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. Your host for this two-hundereth and twenty-eighth episode of…oh wait, it's 228 total shows..and of those this IS the two-hundreth and twenty-eighth…but it's only the twenty-eighth episode of the show called Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package which it currently is.

I alternate hosting duties with original show-host and creator, Marc Hershon. Last week on Epi227, Marc interviewed comedian, author, and soundcaster Dylan Brody whose soundcast - called Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited - which he shares with Darren Staley - had both myself and Marc on as  guests. Marc's most recent show featured a fascinating conversation with Mr. Brody and I urge you to listen to it...not necessarily now but soon...of course that is entirely up to you. It's one of the joys of soundcasts, or "podcasts" as some people still refer to them: the freedom to listen whenever you want on whatever medium you prefer to listen to your downloaded or streaming content.

Additionally, on the subject of Dylan Brody, be sure to check out his video web series "The Corona Dialogues" and also pre-order his new book coming out, "Relatively Painless" by clicking on the link on the blog at www.succotashshow.com or through his own website at http://www.DylanBrody.com

This episode I've got clips for you from soundcasts Of Course You Realize THIS Means Podcast, Cave Crew Radio, and The Malliard Report. I've also got an ad from Henderson's Pant's around here somewhere for y'all…and as there are still updates over at Trumpoetry.com I will be reading a selection…which I have not yet selected. I should point out that both Henderson's Pants and TrumPoetry.com are not real sponsors. We are, as of my writing this, without an actual paying sponsor...and on the lookout for a real one.

CLIPS

Of Course You Realize THIS Means Podcast - A Looney Tunes Discussion
From their show description: Welcome to Looneyland! This is where you'll find fans of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the rest of the gang talking about the history of the franchise known as Looney Tunes. In this exploration of Wacky Wabbits, Screwy Ducks and the artistry of all classic Looney Tunes shorts we will also find ourselves in uncharted territories where we discover re-imaginings of these beloved characters and motion picture appearances you may not know about. Clipped from their September 10th episode of this year, our segment features host Jonathan Graves and guest @UnstableGam3r.

Cave Crew Radio

Hosts Brian Crean aka The Big B (Metal Thunder Radio), Choo Choo Stu (London, England) and Double K aka DK (Double Talk Radio) reveals what REALLY gets talked about in the man cave. Our clip is from September 11th this year, from the episode entitled "Two whores and nothing  happened" and we feature the part from the beginning of the story that inspired the episode's title.

The Malliard Report
Taken from the show's description: Join host Jim Malliard for the weekly podcast that ventures into the fringe, the unusual, and even current events and is not afraid to ask the tough questions. An interview-based podcast that features real-time interactions with live listeners. Stripped of rigid traditional show formalities, and no fear of controversy, The Malliard Report is sure to feature something for everyone. Our featured clip is from September 15th of this year and gets into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) with Jim's guest Priyanka Komala; podcast host, keynote speaker, and STEM advocate to discuss what it looks like to be a woman in the STEM field.

Those are the clips of this week's show, complete with homesite and Twitter links where applicable. I do hope we are a pleasant way to pass the time. This year has been…interesting. Not in a good way, mind you, but in that "May you live in interesting times" kind-of way. I hope you found the content interesting in a good way. I hope that you seek out the soundcasts presented in this episode to listen to more episodes…or perhaps you will be distracted by a soundcast on your way to find these soundcasts. I'd say it's difficult to predict but prediction is the easy part…I'd just have to change the "perhaps" part to "I predict" and then, at some point, it becomes true…like how at some point COVID-19 will go away.

That's not innacurate ultimately but it shouldn't be the governing factor of a society's choices about being cautious with the health of themselves or others. Everything, including us, will eventually "go away"…some of us would rather not be taken out by a virus that one could have taken more steps to avoid…Well, you probably already know this or have heard this type of thing before…unless this is so far in the future that…ugh, you know what? I'm exhausted. Election week has been a real stress test. I appreciate your listening.

Be decent to each other, wear a mask when it can mean the difference between life and homicide thru negligence, and while we are hopefully rebuilding the relatively sane society that our children desperately need, if you would like to share this form of entertainment with others we would appreciate it greater that you can ever know. It's what we mean when we ask you to please, pass the Succotash
