Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for making us your destination listening for this next interval in your existence. With all the available choices you have to choose from as far as doundcasts go - or "podcasts" as many people still refer to them - you chose us, and it is an honor. 

We've got an episode stuffed with content including clips from:  My Best Break-Up, Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, Broadway Baby, Mega, A Funny Feeling, and Fear Initiative. 

We've also got a rare triple Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst and selected reading from TrumPoetry.com. 

So much to listen to, so little…uh…well, really there's as much time as there is, isn't there? So let's crack on! 

CLIPS 

My Best Break-Up 
Sometimes, the best beginnings start with an ending. Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine bring you My Best Break-Up, hosted by the charming Maeve Higgins and featuring a different break-up story each week. Our clips features Hannah Gadsby, from a recent episode where she explains her deep unease with success, coupled with the invisibility she often felt as a queer, autistic woman. She's made a conscious decision to view the world in a new way - without a filter of shame. 

Broadway Baby
Join host Kimberly Schmidt and her husband Jay as they try to transform their friend Alex Fossella from casual theater goer to full-out fan boy. The clip we're featuring is from the show's pilot, where Kimberly and Jay explain Alex's first homework assignment: The cast album from Hair. 

Mega
This soundcast is an improvised satire from the staff of a fictional mega church. Starring
show creators Holly Laurent and Greg Hess as hosts Hallie and Gray, the clip we have is this past January and guest stars Edgar Blackmon (Alone Together, Popstar) as Edward Blackthorn who's talking sports, Game of Thrones, and falling in love.

Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast
Every episode of GGACP, host, comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried, along with co-host and fellow pop culture fanatic Frank Santopadre, welcomes an astounding guest from the business of show. Our clip from a recent episode features guest Joel Grey, talking about being Joel Grey!

A Funny Feeling
Hosted by comedians and paranormal enthusiasts Betsy Sodaro and Marcy Jarreau, A Funny Feeling, invites the hosts' comedian friends and celebrity guests to tell their true paranormal experiences and hear spooky stories submitted by listeners. A clip from Epi69, entitled NorCal Mysteries, features guest storyteller Jessica Jardine, discussing her Northern California upbringing with stories of serial killers and the Winchester Mystery House. 

Fear Initiative
A weekly horror role-playing game podcast, Fear Initiative features Game Master David Ian McKendry as he takes players Morgan Peter Brown, Cara Mandel, Jeff Seidman, Megan Duffy, Rob Schrab, Josh Forbes and Clarke Wolfe on a weekly horror inspired RPG adventure. Our clip is from the very first episode from August of last year, when the FI crew comes together seemingly by accident, meeting late one night at a tavern.

Cracked on and gone: one more episode of Succotash. Thank you so much for listening to us. I hope you have been entertained...and maybe you've got another soundcast or two to seek out and listen to more episodes of that you hadn't previously been aware of…so then I can say that at the very least you've been informed in some way... specifically that there's a whole world of soundcasts out there in a world (that still mostly calls them podcasts as of this point in history.) 

What our show, this "Comedy Soundcast Soundcast" is doing, is saying: "Try this, you might like it in larger amounts" and then letting you decide. We also interview some of those people when they are willing and able. We here at Succotash are empathetic with those who create content and understand the time it takes to make it all happen. So, if you do enjoy our content, why not share it with others so that they also might have a few more choices presented to them in easily consumed and, presumably, digestible portions? (To keep the food metaphor going...) 

So again, thank you for listening and if you wouldn't mind taking a little time out to rate and review us on iTunes we'd be forever grateful because in addition to telling others about us, the iTunes rating is another form of "word of mouth" that might even land us a real sponsor someday... one can dream. 

Good night, and until next time won't you please, pass the Succotash?

Saluton estas mi: Tyson Saner, your returning host and, as you might have heard (unless this is your first listen to our program in which case, welcome), I am a new father. I must thank executive producer Marc Hershon for resuming hosting duties for the most recent 3 episodes while I was adjusting to having a newborn. I'm still adjusting but I'm not complaining because I'm pretty sure that's what parenting is...constant adjustments. 

It's been great so far. I have no jokes to make. It's totally worth it. 

So what I've got for you this episode is a collection of clips I made before I went on leave in early January. All clips from this episode are from December 2018 or before so take a trip with me back in time, won't you…?
 

I've got clips from TigerBelly, The Ramble, The Smartest Man in the World, Comedy Bang Bang, The Mike O'Meara Show and Open Tabs.

I've also got a Double Dose of raging moderate Will Durst's "Burst O' Durst" segment... and keeping with the time travel theme BOTH Bursts are from February of 2019... first timers to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, should note that there were NO Bursts from January 2019 and this episode will have released about halfway thru March... hopefully actually on the IDES... again we shall see... or will have by the time you hear this... wheee!
 

And to prove I didn't record this very long before release I've selected two very recent entries from our sponsor http://TrumPoetry.com from early March for those of you playing along at home, or wherever your head happens to be when my voice hits your ears...

Let's get started!

TigerBelly
A no-holds-barred arena for half truths, social no-nos, and animal behavior-featuring comedian Bobby Lee and his best friend Khalyla. Every Wednesday. Clip is from Episode 172: Christina Pazsitzky & The HOV Gooch. In this clip, the group discusses the cycle of popularity that comedians of various race and gender enjoy and/or miss out on depending on the part of the cycle they are experiencing.

The Smartest Man in the World 
Comedian Greg Proops is smarter than you. I understand that former host and current executive producer of Succotash Marc Hershon clipped "SMITW as recently as Epi186: "Subbin' For Tyson", which is a great episode BTW as are all of Mr. Hershon's episodes... they are my template after all... the thing is, I don't really share what my clip choices are going to be with Mr. Hershon so... I already had a clip ready to go... I feel like maybe more information should be shared from my side of the table sometimes... we'll see.  in the meantime, I wanted to feature  this clip from Pennies, released Dec 20, 2018, because this clip is of Greg's farewell to Penny Marshall who passed away on December 17th, 2018, and features his wife: Artist, photographer, activist, and podcast host Jennifer Canaga.

Bertcast's Podcast

Comic and man-of-the-world Bert Kreischer shares his wisdom and life with you. From Epi5 "Open Tabs", in our clip Bert speaks of Michael Rapaport, the actor and filmmaker who directed the 2011 documetary "Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest". Bert also speaks about his experience of the musical group "A Tribe Called Quest...". 

The Mike O'Meara Show
The Mike O'Meara Show is a fun mash-up of real life, pop-culture, news of the day, dynamic audio clips, and three guys — busting each others' balls. This clip is from thieer Epi2138, "X-Ray Vision", wherein Mike talks about being the parent of a five-year-old and a bit of Star Wars...beware of major spoilers for "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" from 1977... 

Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast 
Join host Scott Aukerman ("Comedy Bang! Bang!" on IFC; "Mr. Show") for a weekly podcast that blends conversation and character work from today's funniest comedians. This clip is from Epi547, featuring John Mulaney, Seth Morris, and Betsy Sodaro, where they feature the introduction of Miss Potts.

The Ramble 
Comedian Jerry Rocha talks about whatever is on his mind at the time. Clip is from Epi160, with guest Eddie Pence, the Vice Host of The Ralph Report with Ralph Garman. In this clip there is a discussion of death in films, including a Top ten list.

Well, there's another episode sorted and served up. I hope it was to your liking. Remember, it's a tasting plate of just a small portion of the type of comedy content or alleged comedy content you could find if you happened to be looking for an alternative to terrestrial radio. Or perhaps you are thinking of starting a soundcast so you were wondering what they might sound like. 

I've only scratched the surface of what is available in ONE genre. There are also sketch and narrative-based comedy soundcasts and, if you'd like a few more examples of what else is out there, might I direct you to the show archive at www.succotashshow.com ... there's 188 more episodes worth of clips, Bursts O' Dursts, and episodes featuring our first "sponsor" Henderson's Pants to be enjoyed as long as the EMP from a nearly inevitable nuclear conflict doesn't wipe out all electronic traces of our program. 

If you want entertainment in your bunker I'd recommend collecting these episodes as soon as you can... make your own time-capsule if you like. Or you could even start telling other people about this program so that they can listen to us and potentially enjoy us and add us to their apocalypse playlist among other forms of digital entertainment. If you did that we'd be friends for life because that's what we mean when we gently implore you to (please) Pass The Succotash...
