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.

Saluton! Estas mi, your host...Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I'm so glad you chose to join me for this clips episode featuring soundcasts that are chock full of current events...

Or at least they were current events when they were being commented on by people in the more-or-less recent past. One might recall some of the topics and/or events discussed ahead in the program...others may not.

I thank you for listening either way.

Apart from clips, we have a single Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst. AND we've got some premium advertising coming your way. Henderson's Pants will delight us with a particularly classy commercial later in the program. We also unveil a new sponsor: TrumPoetry.com, featuring the daily news…in rhyme!

As I mentioned before, I've got clips and helping me introduce them is my co-host for Anti Social Show and the guest for Epi 173 of this very program, Hunter Block! Since you can't hear him here, those clips are from soundcasts SModcast, Let's Get Shitty Show, This Past Weekend, Movie Sign With The Mads, Salty Language, and This Or That.

Let's get to the clippage, shall we?

CLIPS

This Past Weekend
Host Theo Von is joined by that "solid 8" Whitney Cummings, where they talk about Roseanne (the TV show and the woman), dating comics and "classing it up". She also plugs her book I'm Fine…And Other Lies which you can get at Amazon - and for your convenience, you can just click on the banner at the top of our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite. Not only will you be able to order her tome but you can contribute to your favoirte soundcast soundcast in the very same click.

SModcast
Kevin Smith and Scott Moser commiserate and celebrate with the cast of Comic Book Men (Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Michael Zapcic, and Ming Chen) as the seven seasons on AMC TV fades but their new Patreon-based soundcast begins! 

Salty Language
Our longtime social media buddies behind the Salty Language soundcast, Bryan Stewart and Tony High, are finally back! Last heard on our show way, way back in Epi82, we clip from their "No Garbage Tiddies" episode from back in June, specifically the "Instagram TV" segment of the show.

Movie Signs with The Mads
Clipped from the very first episode of Movie Sign with The Mads. Hosts Frank Conniff, Trace Beaulieu, and Carolina Hidalgo fight back against the alien invasion of the senses that is Independence Day: Resurgence. (Spoiloer Alert: Our clip contains spoilers for the movie Independence Day: Resurgence!)

This Or That
From their iTunes description: "You've played Would You Rather before, but never like this. Welcome to the world of This or That, the podcast where no subject is off limits and no option is left unexplored. You can't help but play along as Chris, Joshua, and Danielle tackle each week's topics with humor, intelligence, and a touch of raunchiness." Our clip is from show 126 from June 25th, 2018 entitled "Knife Thrower's Assistant or Lion Tamer".

Let's Get Shitty Show
Self-proclaimed "uninformed hosts" Eddie and Alyssa Jefferson guide listeners through discussions about new, culture, comedy, the arts, buttholes, and genitalia. Our clips comes from a recent episode entitled, "Butterdick". And that's just the title, so hang on.

BIG WRAP-UP

Well, that's about the size of it. This episode is posting at a pivotal point in my personal life so it has a greater potential for me to remember it if I ever were to have one of those "I wonder what I was doing when..." moments in my future.

I likely will have one of those moments because I'm extremely self-absorbed. "That's not likely to change unless I really want it" is a thing that I would say if I were a licensed therapist... but I'm not.

Anyway, I hope your listening experience was pleasurable. I like to think that if you were to enjoy it enough you might take a moment to subscribe to us on iTunes or perhaps give us a five-star rating and a review. That sort of thing lets the powers that be know that you would like the program to stay around... and if enough people do that sort of thing... I might find out about it... That would be most triumphant as the kids used to say when I was one of those... although I was never Bill OR Ted...

Back to the subscribing, the rating, the sharing us with others... that's how you show us love and when you do that, I say "I love you, too" and, also, thank you for doing that thing I gently urge you to do at the close of every episode and that is to Please, Pass The Succotash...
