Yes, it's me - Marc Hershon - your host and executive producer for Epi 159 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Usually we'd either be presenting a Succotash Clips or a Succotash Chats installment and, while I guess this is more Chats than Clips, it's a lot more informal than usual.
That's because I recorded it from Studio F (my Fiat 500C) as I was trundling down Interstate 5 from San Francisco to Los Angeles to this year's Los Angeles Podcast Festival. The quality is about as good as you might expect, considering I'm in a tiny convertible car speaking into a digital recorder. But, as our friend in soundcasting Phil Leirness from Chillpak Hollywood Hour says, how much are you paying for this?
We're featuring an interview I did with a writer and entrepreneur, RIck Karlsruher, who self-published a very funny novel, Standoff: How the Cold War Really Ended. We talk about the book, his attempts turn it into a movie, and some other adventures as well.
This installment features a double dose of our Burst O' Durst with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. And in lieu of having access to our TweetSack, I play a brief message that came into our Succotash Hotline from listener and soundcaster Hunter Block, who co-hosts The Anti Social Show with our own Associate Producer Tyson Saner.
I also have a in-transit speakerphone chat with longtime friend-of-Succotash (and friend in real life) Travis Clark. We talk about his new soundcast, Quick Question, that he co-hosts with Jonathan Sadowski. We also talk about his old soundcast, Tiny Odd Conversations, that he used to do with his wife Brandi Clark. And we stir the pot about a couple of other things before I hang up and get back to the business of driving south.
This episode of Succotash is brought to you by Henderson's Pet Pants, BTW — your pet may not be embarrassed running around with their butt hanging out but, really, come on.
And that's it. I'm actually posting this episode from the Podcast Lab at the Los Angeles Podcast Festival so disregard any of the events that I'm talking about that will have passed by the time this show reaches your ears. But feel free to enjoy the rest of it!
And I hereby promise that the next 'sode of this soundcast, Epi160, will be dropping WAY sooner than this one did.
