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.

CORRECTIONS DEPT.

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.

CLIPS

Bunny Ears
Here's a soundcast that was recommended by Korey Epps, former host of The Evil Teddy Bear Podcast. Hosted by former child star MacCauley Culkin and his friend Mat Cohen, Bunny Ears, a brand new soundcast as of the beginning of this year, is described as a “weekly discussion of things and stuff and things,” according to Apple Podcasts. It also features guests. This was clipped from the appropriately titled premier epi, called “The First Episode of this Podcast”.

(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…)

Popternative
According to Apple Podcasts, “Popternative initially began as a podcast in September, 2015. Hosted by Peter Roumeliotis, guests from the sports, social media and entertainment industry joined the host each week and engaged in a digital dialogue about various issues and topics. Popternative’s main quest has always been, and remains, to provide our viewers/listeners with behind-the-scenes digital discussions that they would otherwise have a hard time locating.” Our clip is from an interview with Mike Zapcic of AMC’s Comic Book Men on AMC.

Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast
The Dead Jesters Sketch Comedy Podcast is a collection of hilarious and original skits brought to you by NYC stand-up comedians Joe Powell and Ryco Newton-Block, according to the show’s listing at iTunes. Each episode is filled with absurd characters, outrageous storylines, and hysterical parodies. This podcast has 5-star ratings across the board; we don't even know what 4-stars looks like. This clip is from Episode 5: "Of Beavers and Bransons" and is as fresh as last week, when it was plucked from the soundcast vine. Tune into the Jesters and you're guaranteed to be laughing throughout. Enjoy!

Stoned Science
Comedians Kimberly Congdon & Sara Weinshenk sit down to explore the depths of science over cannabis selections on Stoned Science. Laugh with them as they explore subjects ranging from sex to artifical intelligence in-between joint hits. This clip we’re featuring is from their episode posted February 18th, 2018, called "Lucid Dreaming".

How Did This Get Made?
This is one of my all-time favorite soundcasts. I've been a listener since the first episode dropped in, I believe, 2010. As described on iTunes: “Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it's amazing? Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas want to hear about it! We'll watch it with our funniest friends, and report back to you with the results.” This clip is from epi171, released September 15, 2017, and features actor Chris Geere of You’re the Worst joining Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the 1987 martial arts film Miami Connection.

Judge John Hodgman
Way back when, John Hodgman had a show called “Today in the Past" which then became a podcast now called The Judge John Hodgman Podcast. The official show description reads., in part, “Have your pressing issues decided by Famous Minor Television Personality John Hodgman, Certified Judge. If you'd like John Hodgman to solve your pressing issue, simply email it, along with your phone number, to hodgman@maximumfun.org. THAT IS ALL.” Featuring Maximum Fun’s Jesse Thorn as the bailiff, this clip is from epi359 “Beyond a Reasonable Bout.”

(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?

CLIPS

Tuesdays with Stories!
Our first soundcast featured is one of several at Stand Up NY Labs and it is called Tuesdays With Stories! The show first appeared on iTunes, September 3rd of 2013, and the description reads: A fun weekly podcast hosted by NYC comedians Joe List and Mark Normand who have an endless amount of funny stories. Every week they spin a few hilarious yarns, sometimes with comedian friends. This clip is from recent Epi238 from last month and is entitled "Snazzy Cock", featuring a snippet of a longer conversation about being a comedian and the ebb, flow and type of attention after your Netflix special airs.

Ding Dong Chomp
Recently announced on Nooner, the long-running weekly live-on-Tuesdays soundcast on Kevin Smith's "Smodcast Internet Radio", Ding Dong Chomp has spun-off and is hosted by @MartyYu and @StephenKrueger.  Marty is one of the 2 original Nooner hosts of and Stephen has been a on-again off-again co-host of the show for years. Marty and Stephen are foodies, and have created this show to accommodate their need to talk about food and eating. Our clip is from their 2nd episode which dropped last month.

The Van Buren Family Roadcast 
This soundcast — or "roadcast" — got my attention through Twitter recently. (Which, BTW, is a great way to get my attention as far as the show is concerned, over at @SuccotashShow. According to their description on iTunes: "The Van Buren Family Roadcast is a musico-comedy-goodtimes podcast unlike any other. Brought to you by Boston's favorite funny funk family, the Van Burens, the VBFRC is audio entertainment for the 22nd century. Join PBear, Mr. Pizza King, Keyjay McGee, Max and their wicked talented extended family on a romp through your ears, past your heart, and straight on to your funny bone." I have to admit that it's a pretty great description.  I've listened to most of the episodes by now and I was a bit spoiled for choices when attempting to select a suitable moment of this that also fit between the 3-5 minute limit that our clips usually attempt to abide by.

Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler
Here's a show that was recommended to me by the @Laughable app. Hannibal Buress: Handsome Rambler is from the Earwolf network (whose soundcasts have been oft clipped for this soundcast) and the snippet we have for you is from Epi51
which hit last month. It features guest Neal Brennan, con-creator of The Chappelle Show and he has his own super cool comedy show Three Mics on Netflix. In addition to comedian host Hannibal Buress, Tony Trimm is in the studio as well, to whom guest Brennan directed the question that kicks off our clips.

Strange Times
Frequent listeners of Succotash will be aware of The Strange Times Show by now, with co-hosts Davian Dent, Kat Sorens, and Samantha Pett. In fact there was a clip of their soundcast in our "The Unfinal Episode", Epi 163 where Executive Producer Marc Hershon announced his (potentially temporary) retirement as host, introduced yours truly as the new host ,and said "Thank You" to a BUNCH of soundcasts and soundcasters who had been very supportive over the years. (I'm embarrassed to say that I did not know that our booth announcer, Bill Heywatt, had begun doing his very own The Bill Heywatt Show as a segment on Strange Times. And when I say I'm sorry it's because I imagine I had been told this by someone, somewhere — and had forgotten about it.  My memory isn't what it used to be, my apologies.)  Anyway, here's a clip that includes an episode of The Bill Heywatt Show from episode 244 published on December 9th, 2017 titled "Ghost Fuckers", along with special guest Dana Lucas.

Prinze and The Wolf
The first five episodes of the Prinze and The Wolf soundcast dropped on iTunes on January 11th, 2017 and they are still going strong with over 70 episodes as of this month. As told to us by the show description on iTunes: "Prinze and The Wolf is a podcast with Freddie Prinze Jr. and comedian Josh Wolf that will cover everything from parenting, to MMA, to pop culture, to gaming. to cooking...you name it! With Freddie's wealth of experiences/stories and Josh's quick sense of humor, no topic is taboo and there are definitely no "safe spaces" on this show." I've decided to clip Epi 1, appropriately entitled "Episode 1...The Beginning".

BONUS CLIP!

High Content
Recently I was a guest on High Content Podcast, a show I clipped in Epi 164, my first episode as host of Succotash. Host Iraj Lopez was kind enough to have me on for a conversation in his episode #33 which dropped just last week. It's just a wee clip for you but don't worry, my answer was pretty long.  I appreciate being asked to be on his show a great deal.

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!
