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'll be your host this week on Epi238 of Succotash Shut-In which you are currently listening to. Last week in Epi237, show creator Marc Hershon had a conversation with returning guest and friend o' the show Chris Mancini. I urge you to check out that conversation. This week I have a hybrid show of sorts for you.

I have a partial chat with none other than actor, songwriter, artist PROVOCATEUR…Andy Dick! (Full disclosure: We had severe technical difficulties while attempting to record and he had spent more than an hour the previous night soldiering thru similar sound difficulties on our end during an appearance on one of my other soundcasts Anti Social Show which I co-host with Hunter Block who was a guest on Succotash in Epi173: "Bein' Social with Hunter Block". Anyway, the audio we recorded that previous night will be featured in the hundredth episode of Anti Social Show but since that won't be releasing for at least a month, I wanted to follow up with Mr. Dick so that he could tell us about his current project Tiger Dick. There will be more context for that later.)

I did say this show was a hybrid, and that is because I've also got three clips for you. I've got clips from Jock Doc Podcast, Battle of the Bald, and Trashy Trashy. There will also be an ad from our longtime fake sponsor "Henderson's Pants" and what will likely be the last reading from "TrumPoetry.com" which is a website that ABSOLUTELY exists, and there is a DOOZY capping off the whole ordeal it documents in poetic format which I will sample for you as it is too long to be included in it's entirety in this episode.

CLIPS

Jock Doc Podcast (featuring Dr. London Smith)
Longtime listeners of Succotash might recall that Jock Doc Podcast was featured on the program back in Epi223: Revuein' Some Movie Review 'Casts (from) Oct 6, 2020. They are part of a small but mighty group of soundcasters who take the initiative to send us a clip of their show thus making it easier for us to listen to them and we did and do appreciate that sort of thing. As they have been very supportive to Succotash in the last six or so months I thought to myself "Yeah, I should probably clip something from them for Succotash..." and here it is, for those who have never heard that episode I will read the description from iTunes: "Improvised comedy with the premise of being a medical education podcast. Typical episodes include a medical topic, short sketches, and a strange guest. Listen as Dr. London Smith (.com) and his producer Cameron discuss medical topics with guests that Cameron finds not so boring!" Our clip is from January 17th, 2021, with Dr. London Smith and his producer Cameron discuss "Cor Pulmonale" with special guest Dr. Bill Butler Yeast (Neil Curran). Not so boring! Before the discussion of the titular condition there is a bit of chat in service of listener feedback which is the feature of this clip.

Battle of the Bald
This is the first time that this soundcast has been featured on Succotash Shut-In but it is no wonder as it's all extremely NEW. It's description reads: "A six-episode scripted comedy series about a young lab assistant who accidentally invents a permanent cure for hair loss and changes the world. The series was written and produced by Tyler Eaton and the first two episodes came out Monday, January 11th, with new episodes every Monday through February 8th." It stars Rebecca Usoro, Connor Cacciottolo, Jackie Kashian, Eddie Pepitone, Kyle Kinane, Olivia Hill, Shannon Dee and more. Our clip is from Epi1, called "Lab Rats", in which Sean Applewhite had seemingly found a miraculous cure for hair loss. The resulting product, Revitalize, skyrocketed him to fame and fortune. But when his fill-in assistant Francine stumbled upon a treasure...

Trashy Trashy
This soundcast was previously featured in Epi216: Clippin' The COVID Blues Away from August of 2020, and Cassandra Cardenes was recently a guest during this past holiday season in our Epi234: Christmasin' with Cassandra Cardenes. The description of the show: A podcast for garbage people. We cover trashy news stories. Hosted by Cassandra Cardenes and Erika Curry. Our clip hails from just a couple of weeks back in January of this year, and it's been chosen to provide more context for the bit of chat with Andy Dick that follows it.

And here we are again at the end of another episode. This one was pretty fun to put together. This episode was being written and assembled at the end of the crazy month of January 2021. It's being released in early February and I don't know if there is a release date for Tiger Dick yet but you can keep watching Andy Dick's Twitter @andydick and you can go to andydick.com for updates presumably and all things Andy Dick ...that are on the website.

We have a website too where you can find what is somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 years worth of shows taking you thru the various iterations of Succotash as it brought you a relatively small portion of the ongoing history of soundcasting. Next week, join Marc Hershon for Ep239, I'm sure he will have something worth your while. We appreciate you. We appreciate your listening and your support over the years. If you wouldn't mind reviewing us for iTunes, Stitcher, Google Podcasts or wherever one can review soundcasts we would really appreciate it a great deal. Aside from showing us you love us by telling people about us, it's one of the other things that really helps us get to more ears in the coming years.

Talk at you in two weeks, Be Decent To Each Other and Please…Pass The Succotash?
