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.

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.

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.
