Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched in 2011 with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)

Original show host and executive producer Marc Hershon, along with booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, associate producer Tyson Saner, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years. In 2018, Hershon abandoned the host chair and anointed Saner to the position, with nary a notice from the legions of listeners. Typical.

Howdy, friends, it’s me, Marc Hershon. Your host and buttery chardonnay for Epi142 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.

I thought we were going to do Succotash Clips this time around because the bag of comedy podcast clips in the back room is overflowing. BUT I managed to get an interview with two of the main movers and shakers behind one of my favorite podcasts so I figured we’d trot out another edition of Chats.

 The sitcom soundcast Wooden Overcoats is kicking off their Season 2 this Thursday, October 27th, and I got time on Skype with head writer and co-creator David K. Barnes, along with series co-creator and co-star Tom Crowley, who plays Eric Chapman on the series.

They were kind enough to give up part of their Saturday evening in London for me, so I thought I would drop this episode of Succotash in advance of their Season 2 launch. If you haven’t caught the first season of Wooden Overcoats you might want to binge-listen that sucker before jumping into Season 2.

 

Go ahead…

 

I’ll wait…

 

All caught up? Great!

 

OTHER STUFF

We have a double dose of our Burst O' Durst, with our resident political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. And, man, the upcoming Presidential election has him SO worked up!

This episode is brought to you by Henderson's Toddler Trows, the perfect pants for your kid all the way through his or her high school years.

OTHER OTHER STUFF

Did I tell you that you can now hear the latest episodes of Succotash on YouTube? It's still audio only but, damn…YouTube! And that we're also now part of the iHeartRadio network?

But none of that is making us a lick of money to keep producing the finest award-seeking comedy soundcast that plays clips of other comedy soundcasts.

Or click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page to get to Amazon next time you're going to do some web shopping — they shave off a tiny pit of the proceeds and kick 'em back to us.

That's it. Enjoy the show.
