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.

Greetings, friend! I'm Marc Hershon, your host and driver for Epi 108.5 of Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. And this is one of our  in-between "halfisodes", recorded during my recent road trip down Interstate 5 from San Francisco to Los Angeles,

Been a while since I recorded one of these. No clips. No chats. Just me, in Studio F (my Fiat 500), tooling down the darkened highway in the middle of the night, blabbering into my digital recorder.

In this episode I talk about podcasts, comedy podcasts, the patent troll that was coming after podcasters in a big way the past couple of years being stopped cold, my take on a few specific podcasts, my teasing a maybe interview with comedian/actor/podcaster Rick Overton (that didn't come off), teasing a full-fledged interview with comedian/actor/podcaster Greg Proops that DID come off the following day, and a classic Henderson's Pants ad (thrown in mainly as filler…)

There's a lot of road noise which I have filtered out about as much as I can, but you'll likely find it pretty distracting, so apologies in advance.

The entire halfisode runs a little over 20 minutes and means so little in the entirety of what Succotash is all about that I'm not even displacing Epi108 with special guest David Feldman - my promos for that episode will continue.
