Happy holidays! This is Marc Hershon, executive producer of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. And we’re pleased to pass along this Succotash Extra from our sponsor, Trumpoetry.com, as read by our booth announcer, Bill Heywatt!
On behalf of our host Tyson Saner, our producer/engineer Joe Paulino, and everyone at Succotash Headquarters, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Sat, 22 December 2018
Saluton and Happy "Things That Are Done at This Time Of Year" to you! Estas mi, your host Tyson Saner, and welcome to the last epi of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, of 2018.
What a year it has been…and that's at least partially because I took over hosting and main production duties during this year approximately 10 months ago. I hadn't really been thinking about how much time had actually elapsed because it, like everything else seems to just keep happening. It does seem to feel like less time than a year has passed because it has…that's pretty logical…beep boop…
ANYWAY…It's a show chock full of content including clips from Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Just Say Words, 2DudeReview, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, The Podcast Brothers and Thought Spiral.
In addition, we have a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst. (Incidentally, if you live in or are visiting the San Francisco Bay Area, Durst is ring master for the annual Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Show, a comedy revue of holiday proportions that plays in a different venue around the area starting on Wednesday, December 26. Click over to http://WillDurst.com for details…)
We've also got a very "This Time Of Year-y" Henderson's Pants ad from waaaaay back in 2012 (I think) and, of course, a reading from our most recent sponsor, TrumPoetry.com.
Listeners of past episodes of Succotash might remember the soundcasts Trevor Has Friends and Just Joshin' being featured in episodes 172 and 177, respectively. These are both comedy soundcasts from over at Savage Henry Magazine , a humor magazine produced locally here in Humboldt County. It's a free publication that has been published with regularity since it was first published in 2010. It was founded by Chris Durant, Sarah Godlin, Monica Durant, and Josh Duke.
I follow the magazine on Instagram at @savagehenrymagazine and I came across this post from December 16th, 2018: "Monica, (@moneycuz) co-founder of the magazine and the glue that has kept it all together for all these years, is sick. She can use your help if you're in position to do so. She's dealing with liver failure and is facing a transplant. Links to donation sites in comments. Thank you for being a fan of Savage Henry and your support."
It's a modest goal of $10K and if you're wondering about specifics, on the page I just specified there was an update made on December 16th, 2018 which reads: "Wow everyone. I'm am so relieved by the outpouring of help in so many forms. This is a crazy time. A major surgery, a month or more of intensive therapy and monitoring, a year till projected recovery, and a lifetime of medications are daunting goals and having some weight lifted financially is a HUGE COMFORT!!! Thank you."
As of December 17th, 2018 they are at 33% of their goal. If you're inspired to help this awesome fan of many forms of comedic expression, you can do so through this PayPal account: https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/8aqlSi5TRm
Chillpak Hollywood Hour
P.S. I've seen "The Lady Killers" and it is quite good. We're working on having Dean and Phil on as guests to talk more about The Lady Killers on an upcoming edition of Succotash Chats!
Sidenote: The documentary: I Need You To Kill, features comedians Pete Lee, Chad Daniels, and Tom Segura on a comedy tour of China. It turns out that there's a growing comedy scene over there and it's fascinating to see it happening. The documentary was directed by none other than the aforementioned J. Elvis Weinstein. It's currently streaming on Amazon Prime and, assuming you are a fan of comedy and/or documentaries about comedians or just documentaries in general…you could do a lot worse than to check this one out.

Just Say Words
Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend

And just like that, the last Succotash show of 2018 is drawing to a close. What a year it has been. I've spent 10 months of it putting together episodes of this show and eight of those 10 months preparing to welcome my wife and I's first child into this world VERY early in 2019. Also, the 16th of this month was my wife and I's 15th wedding anniversary. For those of you who pay attention to this sort of thing, 15 years is the "Crystal" anniversary.
Whaddya want from me, I'm full of tidbits…somewhat like an actual Succotash…
Anyway, 2018 has been the most unique year of my life so far. I have a feeling 2019 is going to top everything on the uniqueness scale...if there is such a thing. On January 1st I have a single dropping. It's a collaboration with Korey Epps who appeared in the Chats episode of Succotash #175. He has an album coming out in early 2019 called "Luv & Liquor" and our collaboration is part of it. It's called "Hope" and it will be available on New Years Day, on Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Deezer, Tidal, Napster and Youtube.…so that's happening too.
In closing, thank you to my wife and family for being wonderful and supportive of me all these years. Thank you to Korey Epps for believing in my musical ability enough to collaborate on a music project with me. Thank you to Executive Producer Marc Hershon for keeping the show running for all those years and then deciding that when he was ready to pass the torch to someone that I was the man for the job. Thank you to Will Durst for contributing the very best in Moderate Political Comedy…that's what it's called, isn't it? Thank you to Bill Heywatt for announcing the show and thank you Joe Paulino for making sure Mr. Heywatt is always captured at his best. Thank you Scott Carvey for the Succotash theme music you are hearing in the background.
And, of course, thank YOU the listener …for listening…and for sharing us with others for that is what we mean when we gently implore you to please pass the Succotash!

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner, your host for this early December holiday season edition of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and have I got clips for you!
(As I'm typing this I'm noticing that "have I got clips for you" feels like a question but if I were to put a question mark at the end of that sentence it feels…well, just wrong. I understand it's a rhetorical question but I never really stopped to think about what it looks like on paper or, in this case, a computer monitor…)
Have I got clips for you? Of course I do — this is a clips addition of Succotash. It would be misleading and, frankly, weird if I didn't.
I've got clips from: Maltin on Movies, Christal Clear The Podcast, Master Manual, High Content Pod, Unstructured, Shenk, and Weird Adults with Little Esther. We've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment. Plus a reading from the website of our still-fairly-new sponsor TrumPoetry.com.
Maltin on Movies
Weird Adults with Little Esther
Christal Clear The Podcast
And there you have it... or rather here you had it... "it" being another "Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast" clips edition... ...that is still underway now that I think about it so (ahem) here you are having it, another edition of "Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast".
Thank you for listening, thank you for retweeting us when you see our links ,and thank you for visiting www.succotashshow.com, clicking the Amazon banner right near the top of the page, and shopping as you normally would because when you do that, Amazon cuts us a small portion of that which goes to our server costs. (If you haven't done that before It's perfectly fine because we love you anyway…)
If you are listening…we also love those who don't listen as long as they are also reasonably good people…and by "We" I mean "Me". I need to clarify that because I don't wish to speak on behalf of other people when it pertains to love. It's not a healthy habit to get into…and as an expectant father I need to maintain my health in as many areas as I can.
So anyway, thank you for listening and if you like us a little you might tell your friends about us...which is one of the best ways of helping us out, and what we mean when we gently urge you to (Please) Pass the Succotash…

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. So I thought I'd take Thanksgiving off this year and advantage to dig up this classic, apparently Thanksgiving-themed, episode of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast — yes, that’s what it was called back in November of 2015. I haven't heard this one in a while. But I looked at the list of clips - some of these shows aren’t even around any more - and I look forward to taking this journey back in time with you when the show was only a little more than four years old. Now-executive producer Marc Hershon was the host, I was the associate producer, and the show was still using the P word when referring to itself. I'll have a fresh batch of clips for you in two weeks. Until then, let's get to remembering together…
• • •
(Original blog content from November 23, 2015)
What? Me, Marc Hershon, your host and toaster pastry? Back within a week with another installment of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast? Yes, it’s true.
This is Succotash Clips, Epi 120. And we have a Thanksgiving Feast of comedy podcast clips for you. It’s a veritable spread of different flavors and — given the humor in some of them — truly a groaning board of a clip buffet in store for your ears this time around.
We’ve got The All-Seeing Guys, Bitter Sound, Ear Goggles, Ice & The Face, The McCue Report, Primalcast, The Reigning Lunatic, Rob & Slim, The Vince Wylde Show and Who Charted?
In addition to that earload, we’ve got a visit to the Podcast Graveyard, courtesy of our associate producer Tyson Saner, who also harvested a number of the clips we’ve got on hand. We also have another double dose of our Burst O’ Durst with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst, a rummage around the ol’ Tweetsack, and a brand new Henderson’s Pants commercial.
Other than our ads from Henderson’s Pants, Succotash remains fitfully sponsor-free. The good news: you aren’t burdened by listening to those pesky ads. The bad news: money to keep this show going basically comes out of my pocket. You can help out with one of several methods, all done by visiting our homesite at http://SuccotashShow.com. You can click on the Donate button and shoot us some moolah. You can click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page and buy stuff at Amazon, then they give us a slice off the top. Or you can click on the link to our Succotashery and purch some merch, a percentage of which comes back to us after they print up whatever you buy. Or you can keep on listening to this show for free and just know that, in the back of my head, I’m thinking you’re just an electronic freeloader. No guilt, no judgement, though.
The Rob & Slim Show Just this last week I was a call-in guest on the LIVE partycast known as The Rob & Slim Show. They’ve been retweeting our stuff the past few months and I had just had Tyson clip me off a chunk of a recent show but, I figured as long as I was going to be on their show, we may as well use THAT clip. Rob and Slim — I haven’t been able to find much else about them or the other voice that seem to float around during their ‘cast — run a 3+ hour live whoop-de-doo, in the style of a morning radio show as they put it and they cover the gamut of topics that are fresh in and around the news. Plus they drink. How can you lose?
The Bitter Sound
The Reigning Lunatic
Ice & The Face
The Vince Wylde Show
The McCue Report
The All Seeing Guys
As I said, a cornucopia of podcasts for your Thanksgiving week listening pleasure. Take us with you on that long drive to the relatives' house or listen while you're digesting on the couch after stuffing your face. And for those of you NOT in the United States, have a great Thursday and Friday.
Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving or not, remember that I don’t care if you pass the turkey or the stuffing or the pumpkin pie, but I will always thank you for passing the Succotash!
— Marc Hershon
(Ending original blog post.)

And that was a show-sized clip of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast, as the soundcast Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast used to be known. I really enjoyed hearing that episode again I don't think I'd heard it since it was first uploaded and like a Thanksgiving turkey should be, that episode was absolutely what you could refer to as being well-stuffed.
I don't really have anything else to add except to say thank you to Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, and you - the listener. Thank you for listening, Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for passing the Succotash.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner, your host for this seasonally appropriate episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast — Hallowanksgiving addition! Yes, it's that special time situated perineum-esquely between Halloween and Thanksgiving. The mid-terms have come and gone and hoo boy, ghosts and turkeys everywhere! Comedy and conversations become essential, people have those conversations, record them and release them as comedy soundcasts...
I'm calling that joke a turkey because I wanted to mention Turkey again. I'm hungry, ok? I'd have turkey off the bone 20 times a year if it were convenient to do so. I already use ground turkey for taco meat and I'll — more occasionally than I would like, mind you — enjoy strips of turkey bacon flaked into a nice pea soup instead of ham. Pea soup is awesome, and fiber is even more important than a sense of humor. Believe me, kids.
SO, How do you find comedy soundcasts? I find them by going to places like Stitcher, iTunes, Soundcloud, Podbay and Laughable.
Laughable actually recommends soundcasts to me based on comedians I'm looking for and has featured comedians that are suggested when I am browsing the app. At least one of the soundcasts featured in this episode was recommended to me by the app and because of the sheer amount of listening to comedy soundcasts I do I really appreciate the suggestions that the app gives me.
I also find soundcasts by listening to soundcasts and the commercials for other soundcasts that might be heard before, mid, and after the main content of soundcasts from certain networks. That's one of the reasons you'll hear soundcasts from the Earwolf network, Starburns Audio, and All Things Comedy so often.
I also try to feature shows that feature people whose names I had not read or heard of before my searching for potential clip material brought their existence to my attention.
So again...how do YOU find comedy soundcasts? No rush to respond, just think about it for a bit and get back to me. In the meantime, we've got clips from: Screams and Moans Returns, Get Up On This, The Aggy Fox and Dana Podcast, Never Seen It, Fat Pig, and The Boogie Monster...
Screams And Moans Returns
Side Note: The movie featured in this episode, Halloween III: Season of the Witch was filmed very close to where I grew up and currently reside. There's a lovely cheese factory in Loleta, the town that stood in for the town called Santa Mira. — TS
Side side note: The intermission skit, "The Nutritionist," was performed by a number of individuals including Succotash Executive Producer Marc Hershon.
Have you ever eaten frosting out of the can? Hidden empty pizza boxes under your bed? Fat Pig is fall-off-the-bone funny comedians Jessica Kirson and Frank Liotti, talking about food addiction, closet eating, bingeing, diets, shame, fat camp, and cake. Sometimes touching, often bizarre, always hilarious, Fat Pig is a wild ride from start to finish, diving in and pigging out on Americaís biggest addiction, food. The episode description we took this clip from simply reads: Maya Angelou, mayonnaise, and Betty White's tits, and it's from the "Fart Porn" episode from March 14th, 2018.
Get Up On This
Never Seen It
The Aggy Fox and Dana Podcast
The Boogie Monster
Well...that's about that. As I record this, the mid-terms have passed and I would not be surprised if there's AT LEAST 2 more years of conflict between The Government AND The People...Honestly it's not a new thing. People have been criticizing politics and politicians for a long time, not always constructively...But it is their right to do so and that's, I guess, the point. It's the violence and hatred that gets to me. That's why comedy is important to me...it's a break from the drama...and if not always a break it is at least a release of tension to be able to laugh at something.
Listening to soundcasts reminds me that people are still getting along, having conversations AND laughing about the strangeness that is the human condition...at least that's what it seems like to me.
So, for Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, and Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I wish you a continued Happy Hallowanksgiving ...on into Thanksgiving Proper...or whatever else you might celebrate this November as long as you aren't hurting anyone. AND, if you would consider sharing this program with people who might enjoy it I'd be forever grateful, for that is what we are hoping to accomplish when we say "Please, Pass The Succotash"!

Saluton. Estas mi, Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast - The podcast that dares to call itself a soundcast and features clips of comedy soundcasts from all around the internet because well, that's generally where soundcasts are stored and, ultimately, found and clipped by yours truly.
It's late October but not yet Halloween as I write this. Even so, if you celebrate Halloween I'd like to wish you a happy one early because the next episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast will post afterwards... truth is I'll probably wish you a "Happy After Halloween - Pre -Thanksgiving" when the time comes because "reasons".
Coming up later in the program, we've got clips from: H3 Podcast, How To Be A Person, Threedom, Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, Hollywood Handbook, and Good One: A Podcast About Jokes.
We've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment. This edition of Succotash is brought to you by Henderson's Hallo Pants and TrumPoetry.com. (This epi features Yours Truly doing a recitation from our too-new-to-have-developed-even-a-hint-of-patina sponsor's website.)
Are you ready? If not, remember that you can hit that pause button if needed... it's one of the beautiful things about a soundcast: the choice of when to listen... and choice is important, is it not?
Just as it's MY choice to leave that pause there.
All right, let's go.
Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast
How To Be a Person
Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
And with that, we bring this late October edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast to a close. I appreciate your taking the time to listen. I hope you've enjoyed the selection of comedy soundcast clips, and that perhaps you'll choose to listen to us again and/or seek out the full episodes of any or all of the soundcasts sampled here. (Just click on the show titles featured in the blog to be whisked off to their homesite.)
Perhaps me from the future has some idea of those things because me from the present has absolutely NO IDEA. :) So until next time, Be decent to each other, Happy Halloween, get out and VOTE for pity's sake and, if you wouldn't mind doing us a solid, could I possibly ask — nay, gently implore you — to please, pass the Succotash?

Saluton, estas mi: Tyson Saner. Welcome to this early October edition of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Yellow, brown and orange are the colors associated with this time of year, colors also reflected in the corn, bacon and carrots that are often core components of the dish for which this program is named.
I'm sorry, I've just been informed that the core components for a succotash consist of sweet corn, (ok, got THAT one correct) with lima beans...which are neither brown nor orange. I'm also being informed that tomatoes, green or sweet red peppers, and okra might be other ingredients in a succotash...
Carrots aren't listed in the Wikipedia entry for succotash - although there is a photograph that shows a succotash with carrots...and one with some kidney beans but no detectable bacon... Oh, but apparently, according to Wikipedia, "in some parts of the American South, ANY mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans, and topped with lard or butter is called succotash. I can see where the bacon would stand in for one's non vegan additional fat/flavor component...
AT ANY RATE…
Without succotash the show would just be called "The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast"... Except no, that's not entirely accurate either. Without the creation of this soundcast by former-host-now-Executive-Producer Marc Hershon in collaboration with Joe Paulino, Bill Heywatt, and Scott Carvey, there wouldn't be a Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and I wouldn't be talking to you about it right now. There might not even be the term "soundcast" which was coined by former-host-now-Executive-Producer Marc Hershon. It's hard to imagine. It's nearly as hard to imagine as it is - for me at least - to imagine a succotash without bacon. Ahh, bacon...
This epi of Succotash has a selection of fresh ingredients, snippets of audio goodness from Adult Sh1t, Jeremiah Wonders, Blank Check with Griffin & David, Jordan, Jesse GO!!, You're Making It Worse, and WOMP it UP!
You're Making It Worse
Blank Check with Griffin & David
Jordan, Jesse GO!
WOMP It Up!
OVER AND OUT
Thus concludes this early autumn edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. In the words of Johnny Mercer, "A winding country lane all russet brown" if you will of selected sounds from folks all over the Comedy scene taking time out from appearing onstage (except, in this case that clip of "WOMP it UP!" which was very much onstage...literally some might say if they were to be using the word "literally" in the correct fashion...) taking time out from appearing onstage or writing or making video content for YouTube or perhaps their own website to, presumably sit with some other people, have a conversation, record it and post it on the internet.
If you liked any of what you heard and it leads you to seek out any of the Soundcasts featured on this program so that you can spend more of your time listening to people have these conversations then my job has been done correctly. I may never know.
I'll talk to you in a couple weeks, until then please visit visit www.tysonsaner.com to see links to some other projects I'm involved with and please frequently visit our homesite www.succotashshow.com for the blog posts for each episode which includes links to all the shows we feature, plus the archive of every episode we've done. Be decent to each other and, whether or not you like bacon, could I possibly impose on your kindness the eenciest teenciest bit more and ask you to please Pass The Succotash?

Saluton, estas mi Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast...the soundcast that features clips from other soundcasts that have something to do with comedy. I swear to you.
That is to say that all of the soundcasts featured in nearly every episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast will be comedy-related in some way. I cannot stress that enough. Or maybe I can and/or have. It's hard to tell without feedback.
Did I mention there are clips?
We've got clips from Ear Biscuits, Science Fiction Rating System, Am I An Asshole?, Comedy Pop-Up Podcast, The Kevin and Bean Show from KROQ, and Hello From The Magic Tavern!
Let's find out, shall we?
Science Fiction Rating System
The Kevin & Bean Show on KROQ
Am I An Asshole?
Hello From The Magic Tavern
Comedy Pop-Up Podcast
And there you have it. September is nearly over and Halloween is just around the corner. In fact if you would like a headstart on Halloween why not pick up one or more editions of "Combat Radio Halloween The Album" available from cdbaby? You can pick them up by going to store.cdbaby.com , typing "Combat Radio" into the search field and clicking on any of the album icons adorned with very distinct shades of black with yellow lettering.
If the image of the headless horseman holding aloft a flaming pumpkin to presumably hurl at some poor soul isn't enough of a tip-off that you're in the right place, the white skull peering from behind the red shield with the black cross that is Combat Radio's logo should be a dead giveaway...
If you'd like specifically to buy this year's edition...this year being 2018...you can go to https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/combatradio8. The funds generated by album sales go to benefit social services, homeless children and other causes that have been adopted by the central figure of Combat Radio and an old pal of Succotash, Ethan Dettenmaier. I would also recommend checking out a track called "The Haunted Tour" from the 3rd annual "Combat Radio Halloween The Album" because it's something yours truly put together with the assistance of my co-host from Anti Social Show, Hunter Block, and we're frankly pleased with the way it turned out.
So until next time, I bid you a fond farewell and thank you for spending some of your time with us here at Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I hope it was entertaining and informative, and I hope that if you did enjoy yourself here that you might find the time to tell others about this program so that it might assist them in their own personal "I'd like to listen to a comedy soundcast but I'm not sure where to start" journey.
That, after all, is the simplest way you could grant our most humble of requests that can be summed up in the four words: "Please, Pass The Succotash".

Saluton, estas mi, Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. The podcast that dares to call itself a soundcast that features clips from other soundcasts...allegedly of the comedic variety...sometimes merely comedy-adjacent.
That is to say, if you have a soundcast and it can be considered a comedy related soundcast I may have listened to it, I may have already clipped it...former-host-now-executive producer Marc Hershon may have clipped it...or I have yet to hear it.
And when I do hear it, I will probably clip it and feature it here on Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast" because that's what this soundcast is all about.
You want clips? We've got clips. This epi features content from: Awards Chatter, Broad Topix, Just Joshin', Entry Level with Brooks Wheelan, About Last Night and Come To Papa.
But wait - there's more! In addition to clips, we've got our Burst O' Durst segment with political wag and social gadfly Will Durst which is opening our show this time around and another reading from our still-pretty-new sponsor TrumPoetry.com...
Entry Level with Brooks Wheelan
About Last Night
Come To Papa
And just like that...the show is near over. I close another chapter of the audiobook that is Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It's time to sweep up the eyeballs...oh wait I used that one already...didn't I? Ugh I...I can't remember...a wiki for the show would be so handy as a reference tool ...sadly the rules of Wikipedia wouldn't allow me to do it myself...as far as I know...I don't understand how Wikipedia works really...is there a Vox video?
I'll look it up after I get done here. Thank you so much for joining me whenever you are listening. If you like us here at Succotash and you'd like to help us out, it would be great if you could write a review on iTunes or anywhere they let you write reviews really...online that is...well, you know what? I'm cool with print media...
Also there is "Succomerch" available at our Succotashery (https://www.cafepress.com/succotashshow) and I imagine that's another great way to show us love by showing off your love of us to others...sharing us with others...loving us together...It's a huge and wonderful favor you'd be doing us, being our mascot of sorts...sharing images of yourself on social media with our shirts on...being featured on our Social Media sites...that sort of modern reciprocal love that is just another fantastic way that you could ...if you were to be so inclined to make a fashion statement AND (Please) Pass the Succotash...

Saluton! It is I, your host Tyson Saner, and welcome to Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. This one is chock full o' content as folks used to say...
The "chock full" part...not necessarily the content...
ANYWAY -- there's plenty to hear on this episode besides me editing myself: Aside from clips — and yes, don't you worry, we've got those — we also have a double Burst o' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst: "Battle of the DC Network Stars" & "All the President's Con Men"
We've got another reading from our recently acquired sponsor TrumPoetry.com AND a spot from Henderson's Pants to round things out. It will be nice to hear from Henderson's Pants...as it is nice to hear from any sponsor that will have us. I'm glad they've decided to throw their pants back into the ring as it were and enjoy some healthy competition for your attention span and/or any other time-currency that is the the life blood of any soundcast...or, as some still call them: podcasts.
Please don't take that literally...
The Kimchi Chronicles
You Know What Dude!
Your New Favorite Movie
Legion of Skanks
Whew! ThIs is a sizable epi if I do say so myself. If you make it through the whole thing I'm grateful to you. Anytime you listen, anywhere you listen, any way you listen - I am grateful to you for it. I'm going to go listen to some more soundcasts for the next episode and I have some pretty good ideas of where to start...
So, rest easy those of you who may have been concerned. BTW, speaking of getting things underway, why not go to www.succotashshow.com, click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page and shop as you normally would. Amazon kicks us a portion of that and this ship keeps afloat for a few more months... or weeks... It's an ideal way to donate because after making sure to click that banner first and seeing your selected purchases thru to the end you have the added benefit of receiving stuff for donating! ...AND it's stuff you ALREADY want because YOU JUST BOUGHT IT... Isn't that nifty?
You know what else is nifty? You — the listener. Thank you for being nifty and thank you again for listening. And while you're out there this pre-holiday season could I possibly intrude upon your good natures ever so slightly and gently remind you to please...pass the Succotash?

Saluton, Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast listeners!
Korey was the host of The Evil Teddy Bear Podcast for many years and over a hundred episodes. I was even a guest on his show in Epi67, entitled "Fights Like Tyson", back in 2013. (Click the link in this epi's blog entry on on our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite if you want to hear what I sounded like as a Boy Podcaster…)
The ETBP went defunct last year but recently Korey has come back on the soundcasting scene with the appropriately titled The Korey Epps Show. We'll be discussing that and other things so stay tuned, won't you? (Spoiler Alert: We experienced technical problems toward the end of our chat so had to cut our conversation a bit short more suddenly than intended…)
We've got our Burst o' Durst from political comedian and social commentator Will Durst in which In which our intrepid correspondent goes slightly mad and babbles on and on about the shady, depraved and transgressive administration.
I'd like to bring YOUR attention to a special event that Mr. Durst brought to MY attention. It's called "Comedy Celebration Day". They had their first one back in 1981 and this year - in 2018 for you time travelers - , it's being held on September 16th from Noon to 5pm. It features 40 comics, it's in San Fransisco in Golden Gate Park's newly named Robin Williams Meadow... and it's free to attend. They recently reached their gofundme goal but you can still see the promo for the event (and continue to donate!) at https://www.gofundme.com/comedy-day-2018
I've also got another selection of TrumPoetry from our almost-brand-new sponsor TrumPoetry.com...
Thank you for spending your time with us for the hour or so which this installment ate up. I appreciate it a great deal. If you like what you're hearing I'd like to invite you to tell people about us here at Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It doesn't cost you more than a moment or two of your time to leap over to our page in the Apple Podcasts section, search for Succotash Show, and give us a 5-star rating and a tasty little review. Sharing is, after all, caring...and it's the most direct way to honor our request that you please Pass The Succotash!

Saluton! Estas mi, your host...Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I'm so glad you chose to join me for this clips episode featuring soundcasts that are chock full of current events...
Or at least they were current events when they were being commented on by people in the more-or-less recent past. One might recall some of the topics and/or events discussed ahead in the program...others may not.
I thank you for listening either way.
Apart from clips, we have a single Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst. AND we've got some premium advertising coming your way. Henderson's Pants will delight us with a particularly classy commercial later in the program. We also unveil a new sponsor: TrumPoetry.com, featuring the daily news…in rhyme!
As I mentioned before, I've got clips and helping me introduce them is my co-host for Anti Social Show and the guest for Epi 173 of this very program, Hunter Block! Since you can't hear him here, those clips are from soundcasts SModcast, Let's Get Shitty Show, This Past Weekend, Movie Sign With The Mads, Salty Language, and This Or That.
Let's get to the clippage, shall we?
This Past Weekend
Movie Signs with The Mads
This Or That
Let's Get Shitty Show
Well, that's about the size of it. This episode is posting at a pivotal point in my personal life so it has a greater potential for me to remember it if I ever were to have one of those "I wonder what I was doing when..." moments in my future.
I likely will have one of those moments because I'm extremely self-absorbed. "That's not likely to change unless I really want it" is a thing that I would say if I were a licensed therapist... but I'm not.
Anyway, I hope your listening experience was pleasurable. I like to think that if you were to enjoy it enough you might take a moment to subscribe to us on iTunes or perhaps give us a five-star rating and a review. That sort of thing lets the powers that be know that you would like the program to stay around... and if enough people do that sort of thing... I might find out about it... That would be most triumphant as the kids used to say when I was one of those... although I was never Bill OR Ted...
Back to the subscribing, the rating, the sharing us with others... that's how you show us love and when you do that, I say "I love you, too" and, also, thank you for doing that thing I gently urge you to do at the close of every episode and that is to Please, Pass The Succotash...

Saluton! Thank you for joining me on this Chats episode of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. My guest for this episode is someone I've wanted to have on since I began hosting duties…and that someone is none other than Hunter Block, my co-host on Anti Social Show, a soundcast that I've been recording with him for nearly two years now.
I always have a good time recording with Hunter when we record for Anti Social Show. If there's one bit of info I've absorbed from listening to so many different soundcasts over the years it's a particular similarity of nearly everyone who commits their voices to digital posterity in mp3 format…and that similarity is how at the beginning of what will become the life of a soundcast, so many of its creators and contributors have absolutely no idea how a show is going to evolve or how long they will continue to make and post episodes.
I'm not talking about radio personalities who archive their shows, I'm talking about people who just decide to add their voices to the ever-growing pool of audio personalities who you can choose to spend part of your day with.
In addition to my conversation with Mr. Block I've also got a DOUBLE dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment, plus this 'sode is brought to you by our ever-present sponsor Henderson's Pants.
Oh! And we even have a soundcast clip featured in this episode…
Well, there you have it. Who knows what the future brings? Sasquatch, that's who. But they're moody and reclusive so it's difficult to gather their predictions with any degree of regularity. Anyway, until next time I bid you a fond gxis poste and, if I could trouble you to do so I'd like to gently implore you to please…pass the Succotash.

Saluton! How's everybody out there? This IS Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and I AM your host, Tyson Saner. Once again, I am bringing to you this tasting plate of different soundcasts from around the English-speaking parts of the world.
In case anyone is following along at home, I am still learning Esperanto with Duolingo and I can now read much more of it than I ever expected to be able to. I don't get much practice speaking it but who knows, maybe I can find a community of Esperantists who are also soundcasters…
Anyway, I've got clips for you from these fine soundcasts: Podcheese, The LIL Show, Who Charted?, Talking Without Thinking, Trevor Has Friends and The Joe Rogan Experience.
I've also got a single shot of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment. You can follow Will on Twitter @WillDurst or, if you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can catch him on stage live in a performance of "Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness". That's on June 30th at Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda.
And this episode of Succotash is sponsored by Henderson's Pants new Pushover Pants.
Well, are you ready for the clips? I hope so because, here they come…
Talking Without Thinking
(Contest alert! Listen to this current episode of Succotash for details on the #knitcapfortrivia giveaway…)
The Joe Rogan Experience
The LIL Show
Trevor Has Friends
And that's what's in store for your ears. Thee highs and lows, chuckles and tears…or maybe that's all just my subjective reaction to this content.
Remember, I don't just feature clips, I also listen to the entire episode of whatever soundcast it is I'm sampling. In some cases I become a semi-regular listener but there really isn't enough time in the world for me to listen to EVERY episode of even my favorite soundcasts when I want to.
Such is life. "Time in a Bottle" and all of that…
I'm certainly not complaining however because of how enriching it feels to hear people talking and sharing information with each other often not knowing if anyone outside of the room - or wherever their soundcast is being recorded - is even listening. However, because of the nature of this show and my role in it there is a chance that I am, or will, or have at least once. And perhaps part of your show will become part of a future show of ours…or maybe it already has and you're about to furiously comb our archives at www.succotashshow.com to figure out which episode of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast YOUR soundcast was featured on. I have no idea.
Whether or not any of those scenarios apply to you, you're either reading or hearing this now and that makes me happy. If you go to www.tysonsaner.com It will make me even happier.
So until next time, I will be on the verge of ecstasy if you could find it in your heart or perhaps just in your busy schedule to please pass the Succotash…

Saluton! It is once again I, Tyson Saner. I'm still your host for this curated assortment of audio content from various locations around the globe and, if you are still listening, then I am still grateful and I wish you a warm "Welcome Back".
We're brought to you this time around by Henderson's Pants Toddler Trau, the stylish pants for those who have just learned to walk.
In this installment, I've got some interesting selections for you this episode. We've got clips from R U Talkin' R.E.M. RE: Me?, The Goon Cast, Unladylike, Food To Watch Films By, Pretending With Dice, and Unspooled.
We've also got a double dose of raging moderate comedian and social commentator Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segments...in fact, we're leading the show off with our first of two B.O.D.'s…
Pretending With Dice
His new Pretending With Dice has just began a new cycle of RPG goodness. Allow me to elucidate. Our clip is from Epi25, comprising an adventure entitled "Yavin Exodus". In the wake of their successful attack on the Death Star, the Rebel Alliance must evacuate their headquarters on the moon of Yavin IV, before Imperial reinforcements arrive. Alderaanian ex-smuggler Klyne is assigned to the flight crew of the freighter 'Close Encounter'. Kortez finds himself flying patrol with a talkative Sullustan, who tries his patience, and meanwhile, on Nubia, Ugnaught droid expert Thnock carries out a daring heist on an Imperial droid factory. Thrilling stuff!
R U Talkin' R.E.M. RE: ME?
Food To Watch Films By
The Goon Cast
And just like that, the show is done.
I hope you leave this listening experience with at least one new idea of where to listen next when you wish to get your audio fix. I'm off to rustle up some more clips from soundcasts Ive recently heard of, soundcasts Ive known of for a while, and soundcasts I have yet to discover. Maybe even something that's been featured before because...why not?
I'd greatly appreciate it if you might visit www.succotashshow.com or even www.tysonsaner.com if you've any interest in any of the other things I've created during this life. And, of course, I'd like to thank you for being here and if you have any interest in the continuation of this free soundcast I would most gratefully and gently urge you to please pass the Succotash.

Saluton, faithful Succotash listeners, 2nd timers and people just trying out the soundcast app on their phone. Is it Google Play? Spotify? Laughable? Some other thing?
However you listen I'm grateful to you for it.
I'm Tyson Saner and I'll be your host for this clips episode of Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I've assembled clips from a few soundcasts I've enjoyed recently, including Bad Science, In Poor Taste, Vinyl Emergency, Welcome to Television, Defunctland and This Sounds Serious.
We've also got a single shot of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment and a classic Henderson's Pants spot.
Ready? Let's dig in.
In Poor Taste
Welcome to Television
This Sounds Serious
Aside from those ones of me on my Soundcloud and Instagram profiles that is?
Never mind. It's a rhetorical question. The point is I've got no more show for you at the the moment and I'm just stalling for time. I have fun doing this. So for the gang "here" I've been Tyson Saner attempting to bring little bits of the audio parts of the internet to you so that you might perhaps be interested to find these shows on your own. Or ones I haven't discovered yet — and believe me, there are THOUSANDS — I've put that in all caps for emphasis so you know I'm serious.
If you've enjoyed the time we've spent here I'm very glad to imagine that, it means I'm doing my job. So until next time I'll bid you a fond farewell and , If i could, remind you to have fun in your life when and if you are able. And if you would also remember to please, pass the Succotash.

Yes, for all intents and purposes it is I, Tyson Saner. Your host for THIS episode...and a few before it... but this one is different.
As you may or may not have noticed from the episode title this week, it's a chat episode.
I've been fortunate enough to snag an interview with Davian Dent of both The Bitter Sound and the oft-clipped-for this show Strange Times. Long-time listeners of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, might recall that Mr. Dent is, in fact had been a guest on this program waaaaay back in 2014 in Epi85, subtitled "Delvin' with Davian Dent", when the show was still hosted by our esteemed Executive Producer, Marc Hershon. The show was still called "Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast" as well.
Ah, those were the days.
There's more of this interview than you're going to hear in the show — I've left it off because I'm trying to avoid a two-hour runtime for the episodes that I'm editing. I had a great time chatting with Mr. Dent and I even had the chance to appear on his show Strange Times in episode 259 called "Dog Egg" for reasons I wasn't aware of until I listened to show from the beginning.
Our announcer, Bill Heywatt, appeared on episode 257 of Strange Times. (I should point out that, although it was listed as "episode 257", the audio is actually from an episode of one of Mr. Dent's soundcasts called The Blank Planet from 2015.
I've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's timely Burst O' Durst segments. I play them throughout this episode and give them their proper introduction with some great public domain stock music I picked out myself.
Just follow the assorted links sprinkled into this blog entry in order to hear the material I've been referencing. (If you're not SEEING links, you may be readin gthis entry somewhere other than our homesite, at http://SuccotashShow.com. I invite you to visit us directly to enjoy the full, internet-linking experience!)
I'd like to extend my gratitude to Mr. Dent for being a supporter of Succotash over the years. I'd also like to thank YOU, the listener who has listened faithfully as time has marched on and also to those who have clicked on the Amazon Banner at the head of our page at SuccotashShow.com to donate simply by shopping as you normally would.
I am eternally grateful that you spend time here with us and, until next time, this is Tyson Saner for Marc Hershon, Bill Heywatt, and — for this episode — Davian Dent, gently reminding you to please...pass the Succotash.

Indeed it is I, Tyson Saner. Your host and Soundcast Sommelier for the evening. Enticing your earbuds with a selection of fine soundcast content and extending the invitation to taste just the tiniest amounts before making a decision on whether or not to listen to more of what these various creators have seen fit to upload and share with whomever makes the decision to listen to them.
This episode I've got clips from Bunny Ears, Popternative, Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast, Stoned Science, How Did This Get Made? and Judge John Hodgman.
We've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O’ Durst segments and this episodeis brought to you by Henderson’s Shoplifter’s Pants.
I'd also like to point out that one of the ways you could be listening to us now is Spotify! Yes, we've added yet another place you can find us and potentially pass us along to someone else in need of a soundcast experience who may not know where to start.
Hannibal Buress (whose soundcast, Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler, I clipped for epi167) was kind enough to reach out on Twitter to thank us for "the plug" and to let us know that Handsome Rambler is not part of the Earwolf network anymore. It is now independent and you can find the show at http://hannibalburess.com/podcast/. Thank you very much for the correct information, Hannibal. My apologies.
(Side Note: I was a guest on an episode of Evil Teddy Bear a few years back but I can't seem to find it online at this time.)
(Side Side Note: I'm happy to say that Korey Epps is launching a new podcast this year called The Korey Epps Show and was very recently a guest on epi49 of another soundcast I co-host with Hunter Block called The Anti Social Show.)
(Side Side Side Note: I've got news for you, he's likely to be on epi50 as well…)
Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast
How Did This Get Made?
Judge John Hodgman
(Side note: As I was writing the details down of this show as I do for every episode of Succotash, The Comedy Souncast Soundcast, I couldn't help but notice that for some reason, Mr. Hodgman has blocked our @SuccotashShow Twitter account, and I have to say I have absolutely no idea why. I can only imagine that it was accidental. At any rate, if you'd like to contact @Hodgman on Twitter to ask why on our behalf, let us know what he says…)
DONE FOR NOW
And with that, I've exhausted my current supply of Soundcast clips from all around the internet. Mostly I use Podbay and Laughable to listen but I'd be very curious to know where YOU listen to us, and WHERE you listen to us.
FYI, I usually listen to soundcasts when I'm doing manual labor of some sort. If my life included a long, near-daily commute then that's where I would probably listen. Most of you listening by now should know that you don't have to stay in one place or be inactive while enjoying this or your favorite soundcast and if you didn't know, then you do now.
Also I've got my first "Succotash Chats" coming up for the next episode and I've got to start editing that now. Of course, that's MY "now". I could be done with that part of the deal by the time you hear this. It could already be posted. Well, you do understand how time works don't you? It keeps moving forward for all of us, until…it doesn't.
So, If you've enjoyed yourself here, remember: You can now find us on Spotify for another place to enjoy us. If you'd like to help the show offset server costs, you can hang right here on our homepage and either click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page, shop as you normally would, and a percentage of the money you spend goes to help us. Or click on the Donate button up there if you don’t want to buy anything. And every little bit helps...
So if you do enjoy this free entertainment and wish to hear it for years to come, I would gently remind you again to please, pass the Succotash.

Saluton and Ahoy-hoy Soundcast Enthusiasts and Accidental Listeners Everywhere! I am your host, Tyson Saner...it is my real name...and we can talk about nominative determinism another time. As for now...
We've got clips from Tuesdays With Stories!, Ding Dong Chomp, The Van Buren Family Roadcast, Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler, a special clip of Strange Times featuring our esteemed announcer, Bill Heywatt, and Prinze and The Wolf.
We've also got a single Burst O' Durst from political comedian and social commentator Will Durst for you this show and of course, what would an episode of Succotash be without a classic Hendersons' Pants commercial? That question answers itself…
And please stay tuned until the end for a BONUS snippet, won't you?
Tuesdays with Stories!
Ding Dong Chomp
The Van Buren Family Roadcast
Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler
Prinze and The Wolf
Well, that about does it. Another colorful melange of veggies and bacon for your ears. I do spend a good amount of time looking for and finding soundcasts to clip, from a selection of what is now easily half a million different show available.
Okay, that might be stretching it a bit but the actual number as of April, 2018, has got to be over 100,000. I'm not sure how many of those are comedy soundcasts — I have no way even attempting to have these numbers for you today — but if you do hear this voice from the past in your present, you'll likely know the facts, and that ultimately timing IS everything.
And if, by any chance, one or more of these soundcasts I've featured piques your interest enough that you become a regular listener of it, and if I were to theoretically find out about that somehow, perhaps through social media rather than telepathy or osmosis, then I could rest easily knowing my job had been done, at the very least, successfully. Because now you understand what it is to wield the power to (please) Pass The Succotash!

Tyson Saner here with warm greetings and a friendly Saluton to you: soundcast lovers, listeners, people who are just curious about soundcasting...and people who are listening by accident. I don't know, maybe you walked into a room where someone is listening to us and you were grazed by soundcast earshrapnel. Who am I to say how you should be finding us? No one, that's who.
Except I WILL say that if you do like comedy, soundcasts AND comedy soundcasts, you could take advantage of an extremely useful app called Laughable. It's an app that specializes in comedy soundcasts and soundcasts by comedians. They've also recently expanded their content parameters and do not limit themselves to only comedy soundcast content. (I personally appreciate that as it is an ongoing goal I have to provide both types of content for Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.)
And wouldn't you know it? I do happen to have a more or less fresh batch of clippage for your aural consumption…or your hungry-hungry ear-holes.
We've got clips from: Local To Nowhere (featuring a guest appearance from our esteemed executive producer Marc Hershon), I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam, Swipe Left Swipe Left, The Ralph Report, Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank, and Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp.
We've also got a classic Henderson's Pants Ad and a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment.

Saluton! It is I, Tyson Saner, your Audio-Tour-Guide or something like that. Come with me, won't you, as we explore assorted points of interest in Soundcastland for the next hour or so.
I've got some good ones for you. There are clips from Launch Left, Raised By TV, Whiting Wongs, Doughboys, Wife of The Party and The Movie Court,
This installment is brought to you by Henderson's Breakaway Trousers, and I thorw in a couple of shout-outs for good measure.
RAISED BY TV
WIFE OF THE PARTY
THE MOVIE COURT
Before I leave you I'd like to give aknowledgement to a couple of soundcasters: First, a shout out to host Steve Owens of Fascination Street - a soundcast I featured in the episode of Succotash before this one. Mr. Owens has been very vocal on Twitter about having been featured on Succotash and I appreciate it a great deal. (Cheers, Sir, and thank you for passing the Succotash!)
Iraj Lopez of High Content Podcast has also given Succotash a shout out on his 29th and a 1/2 episode of his soundcast. I play it toward the end of this episode. High Content is one of several soundcasts that I listen to regularly. This is in addition to what might be several episodes of YOUR soundcast when I'm combing the internet looking for digital bits of corn, bacon or lima beans to incorporate into this succotash that is Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. If I hadn't been a consistent listener of High Content there's really no telling how long it may have been until I heard the kind words Mr. Lopez had for us.
So if you do give or have given the show a mention in your soundcast, don't be shy. Contact me, Tyson Saner, on Twitter @RevT23, Executive Producer Marc Hershon on Twitter at @hershco and the show at @SuccotashShow. That way I'll be able to properly express my gratitude in as timely a fashion as I can.
And that's another in the can... or the pan as it were. If you haven't been entertained I do hope the lingering scent of bacon is some small comfort. My thanks to you for listening. I'm grateful each and ever time you decide to spend time with us here. So I'll bid you farewell for now and gently remind you to please pass the Succotash...

Yes, it is I...Tyson Saner. Very grateful that you are joining me, brand new host of this program and pale imitation of former host Marc Hershon. It is a great honor to be entrusted with the keys to the Succotash SoundCast Soundkingdom and I look forward to carrying on the tradition that has been listening to and sampling Comedy (and otherwise) Soundcasts for your own personal variety show, between your ears, in the theater of your mind...
We also have a double dose of comedian and raging moderate Will Durst's famed "Burst O' Durst" segments. I am grateful that Mr. Durst has agreed to continue supplying us with his unique take on the politics of our times. You'll be hearing those later in the program. And if you're in or near the San Fransisco Bay Area you will find, on the aformentioned website, dates, locations, and tickets for Durst's latest one-man show: Durst Case Scenario: Mid Term Madness.
And, as always, Succotash is sponsored by Henderson's Pants.
As the associate producer of this show, when I was finding clips for this program and sending them off to Mr. Hershon I NOW realize that a few of my contributions over the years may have stretched the definition of "Comedy" a bit. Sometimes my decision to submit a clip was made by it being interesting or different or having a particular quality about them that I felt made them worthy of inclusion on Succotash. (I always had backup ideas for clips to submit in case my submissions couldn't be used for whatever reason but to Mr. Hershon's great credit, my submissions were rarely, if ever, unused.)
Now I am completely aware that something "having a particular quality about them" is nebulous at best and nothing if not 100% a subjective viewpoint. Whether or not something is "interesting" or "different" is also, pretty much 100% subjective. This, of course applies to comedy. Maybe not 100% with comedy but very probably.
Anyway, just something to bear in mind as we explore the highways and byways of Soundcastland together.
Your Mom's House
The Stanley and Branley Show
The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: On The Air
High Content Podcast
Well, that about does it. It's been a sort-of-but-not-really maiden voyage. I'd like to thank Kenny Durgess, Will Durst, Joe Paulino, Scott Carvey, Bill Heywatt, Henderson's Pants and of course our Executive Producer Marc Hershon for their support and contributions to this episode and EVERY episode of Succotash that came before I had even heard of the program back when Mr. Hershon started posting episodes in March of 2011.
I hope you will continue this journey of discovery with me and I look forward to continuing to bring you this "Whitman's Sampler" of soundcasts from all around the world where they record in English.
For everyone here I bid you farewell and gently remind you to please, Pass the Succotash...

Yes, believe it or now, and for the last time – really, this time, it’s me. Marc Hershon. Departing host but still remaining executive producer of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.
First of all, I lied to you last episode when I said THAT was the final episode.
Because after I dropped that installment I heard from a number of our friends-of-the-show, mainly soundcasters who have been so supportive and helpful over the seven years that the show has been on that I felt I truly hadn’t thanked enough people when last I signed off. Also, between Epi162 and now, we’ve found a way to keep Succotash going! In classic show business fashion, I’m just going to tease you with that for now and it will NOT be revealed in this blog post!
You'll just have to listen to the episode to find out, as I do have a lengthy chat with my replacement toward the very end of the episode.
The initial impetus to do an UNFINAL episode was that our resident political comedian and social commentator Will Durst had sent me a last Burst O’ Durst installment which arrived after we’d dropped Epi162. And then I discovered we also had a last Boozin’ with Bill segment with our announcer Bill Heywatt that had somehow slipped through the cracks. Based on those things, I figured I would do one last round of soundcast clips just featuring shows from some of our most vocal supporters on social media. Which gives us quite a lineup!
Big giant thanks, by the way, to our Associate Producer, Tyson Saner, for helping me to harvest the absolute bumper crop of clips we’re featuring this show. You’re going to hear from The Anti Social Show, Casa Mirth, the Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Comedy Film Nerds, Ear Goggles, Film Threat, Illusionoid, Quick Question, Story Worthy, and Strange Times.
And this Unfinal episode is sponsored by our friends at Henderson’s Pants and teir spanking new Down UnderPants. (Including an endorsement from Jason "Jabs" McNamara, all the way from Canberra, Australia.)
Chillpak Hollywood Hour
Comedy Film Nerds
The Anti Social Show
And that is going to do it for Succotash under my command. We’ll be announcing when the first new episode of of the show is dropping, as soon as we figure out what we need to do to put all of the controls into the new host's hands. I will likely drop in from time to time, and I’m in the process of putting a whole new soundcast into production.
I want to thank you for listening to this Unfinal episode of the show. For those of you who have been listening for a while, I can’t thank you enough for your support. And whether that describes you or you’re relatively new to the show, please subscribe and keep listening as show continues. I’m excited to see where our new host takes the show.
Now, for the last time as your host, it’s my pleasure to ask you to please pass the Succotash.

Hey, reader. It’s me, Marc Hershon, the host and executive producer for Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. In this installment, I'm bringing you the show we recorded live this past weekend at the 17th Annual San Francisco Sketchfest in just a moment.
It's a fun episode, featuring a couple of my favorite past guests: Matt Weinhold, of the Monster Party soundcast, and Mark Pitta, of the late After Hours soundcast. (Weirdly, both of these guys were former roommates of mine at one time, which had nothing to do with them both being booked here. Or did it?)This is epi 162 and it’s going to be the last installment of Succotash for a while or maybe forever.
We also had a surprise third guest who was in the audience: Josh Gilliland, host of the Legal Geeks soundcast, who was tagging along with Matt. Turns out that Josh is the brother of another past guest of our show, Gabriel Diani, and I was delighted to invite him up to join us.
And, although he was unable to join us live due to being out in Hawaii dodging a mythological missile, we were about able to feature our final Burst O' Durst featuring Will Durst, our resident political comedian's predictions for the coming year.
Our announcer, Bill Heywatt, was in his glory and shares a tale of radioactive frogs in addition to handing the emcee chores and reading a commercial for the new #MeToo Ladies Trousers for Men from our sponsor, Henderson's Pants.
As you'll hear in this installment, this is to be the LAST episode of Succotash, for at least a while or forever, I'm not exactly sure.
We’re taking this break or hiatus or vacation or holiday or whatever you want to call it just a few months shy of our 7th anniversary in Soundcastland. Whether you’re a longtime listener or you just found us, I want to thank you for listening and supporting Succotash.
When I started doing this show with my producer, Joe Paulino, in his Studio P – the Home of the Hit – here in Sausalito, California, I really didn’t think about it lasting for any particular length of time. My original concept was to create a comedy soundcast that would serve to promote other people’s comedy shows, and to spread the word about the amazing entertainment value of soundcasts in general.
I think we succeeded.
When we started, barely 15% of American had even heard of soundcasts, or podcasts as they used to be known, let alone regularly downloaded and listened to them. And there were about 50,000 shows out there. Now the number of regular listeners is over 40% and there are more than 300,000 soundcasts available, featuring every genre of which you could think.
Comedy soundcasts, and networks carrying them, have proliferated so fast that we kind of can’t keep up by sampling the eight or ten we could do in our show. And I’ve had more and more people asking me if featuring those shows without explicit permission is even legal. Frankly, I don’t know. Since we’re not profiting by that content – we’re never had any sponsor besides Henderson’s Pants and they don’t ever pay us – we’re more like a entertainment news program which would, at least in my scanty understanding of the law, constitute fair use.
So we’re going to wind things down for a bit. I may bring Succotash back as it has been, or with some minor changes, in a bit. I may release some special episodes from time to time which would likely be interviews with comics or soundcasters or actors or what have you. And I’m definitely cooking up some new soundcast ideas.
I’ll still be reviewing shows for Splitsider.com and I will likely get back to doing my reviews for HuffPost as well. And if you want to reach out to me for any reason, I’m still around. The firstname.lastname@example.org email will still go through. And our site will stay up as well. Just don’t expect to be bombarded with the number of tweets we normally put out.
Thanks again for listening. I’ve enjoyed doing this show for the past seven years and I’ve loved getting to interact with you on whatever basis that’s been, even if you’ve only ever listened and we have not exchanged a single word.
(Stay tuned after the end of the live show, as I have one final Cavalcade of Gratitude where I thank some recent retweeters as well as some folks who have been around supporting this show for a lot of our run. I'm sure I missed a ton of people in that rundown and for that, my sincere apologies.)
All right. Let’s get on with the (final) show, recorded live at S.F. Sketchfest 2018!
