Yes, it’s me. Marc Hershon. Your host and 100% genuine cowhide casual travel jacket for Epi148 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Your ears are staring down the barrel of another Succotash Chats show, this time around featuring my conversation with podcast pioneer – yes, I’m using the “p” word – Jimmy Pardo!
We talk about his Never Not Funny soundcast, now in its 11th year, and how he was one of the first guys to cast his line out into the soundcast pond. We also talk about his upcoming Pardcast-a-thon 2017. It's 12 straight hours of live soundcasting for a good cause.
And although he won’t come right out and say who his guests are, he does hint around enough that you should be able to get a good idea of who is going to drop by to help him out next Saturday, March 4th.
Also in this edition of Succotash we have an installment of our Burst O’ Durst segment, with political wag and social gadfly Will Durst, and a visit to the Tweetsack to read your tweets and emails. And the whole hot mess is brought you by Henderson’s Accountant Pants.
I reviewed two soundcasts for Splitsider this weeK: Matt Gourley's I Was There Too with Back To The Future's Tom Wilson & Tyler Marchant's Cynical Cartoons with Jay Oliva! I also mentioned listening to We Got This: Lethal Weapon vs Die Hard & and Deep Night with Dale: Greg Hildreth!
Then, over on Huffington Post this week, I reviewed Criminal, which looks at faking your own death, and Dumb People Town with guest comedian Matt Braunger! Other shows I mentioned there includes Terms — Episode 13 - Preamble; and Good One — Neal Brennan’s White Guy Being Called the N-Word While Feeding a Horse Joke.
ALSO CHECK OUT
I wanted to do a quick shout out to our associate producer Tyson Saner. I’ve got an arsenal full of podcast clips that Tyson has harvested and I will be unleashing them in the next edition of this very soundcast. But I wanted to let you know that Tyson has teamed up with a big soundcast listener and supporter, Hunter Block, to bring you a show of their very own. That’s right. It’s called The Anti Social Show, and it’s up on SoundCloud.
And that is pretty much that. The best way for you to help pass the Succotash is to let your friends and family know that they can get it in a ton of different places: The Laughable app, iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Overcast, Podbay, iHeart Radio, YouTube, on our Facebook page, and even right from our homesite at SuccotashShow.com!

Howdy, howdy, howdy! It’s your ol' friend and audio neighbor Marc Hershon, host and rootin', tootin’ cowpoke for Epi147 of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Roundup.
This installment has nothing to do with cowboys, it's actually an episode of Succotash Chats, where we focus on interviews with soundcasters, comedians, soundcaster/comedians, and just plain ol’ showbiz folk. Although, come to think of it, once I get into this episode's conversation with our guest, it is like looking back on a kind of wild West.
I recently wrote a review on Huffington Post of Kicking Through The Ashes, a memoir of sorts by comedian Ritch Shydner. And then a couple of weeks after that review hit, Ritch was playing nearby at Mill Valley’s Throckmorton Theatre on a Tuesday night. After the show was over, we tried to get a bite to eat but the sidewalks roll up pretty early this side of the Golden Gate Bridge so we went to his hotel and chatted it up there for a bit and that's what you're going to hear.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE
We have a double dose of our Burst O' Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst, a short visit to the Tweetsack to read your tweets and emails, and we're sponsored this episode by Henderson's Parka Pants.
I'm in the process of putting together April's Fools, a sort of comedy variety show on Saturday, April 1st, and the Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley, CA. It will feature our own Will Durst, past guest Larry "Bubbles" Brown, Debi Durst, Dan Spencer, Al Clethen, and a few other surprises. We’ll have a bunch of comedian and funny people doing standup, improv, readings, music, and more. So if your around the area, be sure to check that out if you want some good laughs to kick off your April entertainment calendar. You can find out more information online at http://142ThrockmortonTheatre.org
Don't forget to grab a copy of Kicking Through The Ashes. Easiest way to do that is to hit the Amazon banner at the top of our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite, type in the title and get it in your hot little hands quick.
PLACES TO LISTEN / WAYS YOU CAN HELP
In addition to our homesite, iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and the Laughable app, you can hear each episode of Succotash on our Facebook page, catch us on iHeart Radio and even listen to us on YouTube - it's audio only, though but maybe you'd like looking at a still shot of Ritch Shydner for 56 minutes.
As far as what you can do to help Succotash, the easiest and cheapest is to hit iTunes and give us 5 stars and a glowing review. You can also go to our homepage, click on the Donate button and slip us some green. Then there's the Amazon banner at the top of the page and the link to our Succotashery on the right hand side.
Until next time our paths cross please remember to pass the Succotash!
