Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 12 years ago (April, 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 co-host Tyson Saner, booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have been keeping the flame alive o'er these many years.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner and welcome to episode #255 of Succotash, formerly Succotash Shut-In, formerly Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, formerly Succotash, the Comedy Podcast Podcast. Now in our 5th season and 10th year. Last week in Epi254, original show host and my every-other-week co-host Marc Hershon brought you a quartet of clips from the soundcasts Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, The Amazing Nerd Show, I Shake My Head, and Who’s Right?. That show is still available wherever you listen to soundcasts…or "podcasts" as many people still refer to them as. Of course you can also listen to the archived version of the show at our homesite

This week I'm bringing you some clips as well. I'm still looking around for guests and I do have a couple lined up but that's for a future "chats" episode and since you are here with me now and I've got clips for you then this will be a clips show. This episode's clips are from the soundcasts Childlike At Best with Mike Valdes, Shut Up, I Love It, and Distractible. I've also got an advertisement from Succotash's longtime sponsor Henderson's Pants for their new CoverAlls for you that is specific to "this time of year"…whatever THAT means. (I do realize that it makes no sense to say "whatever THAT means" in this context due to the fact that it would be a ridiculous thing to suggest that I didn't know EXACTLY what I meant when I said that. The particular "that" being the "THAT" in "whatever THAT means". Please take note of the quotation marks you can't see me using if you aren't reading this.) Tally-Ho!


Childlike At Best with Mike Valdes
Every week your favorite grown up kid, Mike Valdes, chats with his favorite people about adolescence. Listen as they dive into a cereal bowl full of nostalgia, funny stories & more! Our featured clip from Mike's April 26th, 2021, episode, in which he chatted with Josh Sneed (DryBar Comedy, Comedy Central) about growing up in Cincinnati, getting booed at a baseball game, & learning that you're never too old to have an all-out Nerf war at work. Their featured cereal for the episode was Kellogg's Little Debbie: Oatmeal Creme Pies cereal!

Shut Up I Love It
Comedy writers Sasha Feiler and Joe Cabello host Shut Up I Love It, a comedy soundcast that celebrates the aspects of life that make you go "Ooh!" and others go "Yuck!". Our clip is from the May 9th, 2021, episode featuring guest Erika Curry, a writer/performer and co-host of the Trashy Trashy Podcast. She's also a big fan of a classic cult film Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) starring the drop-dead-gorgeous Denise Richards, Allison Janney, Amy Adams, Brittany Murphy and a couple of Kirstens.

The Distractible podcast with Mark Fischbach, Wade Barnes, and Bob Muyskens is a space to have thoughtful discussions about funny, out there, or otherwise interesting stories from everyday life. Also an opportunity for three friends to remind each other they are not as smart as they think. The featured clip is from the spisode that dropped May 17th, 2021 entitled "Hair", wherein the guys discuss all things hair (and the lack there of)! They warn of the dangers of hair removal, explore the strange hair trends of ancient Greek statues, and discuss sci-fi scenarios where the elite harvest hair and organs from the less fortunate. I chose this clip because…Teratoma…

And that's all the content I have for you this week. I do hope you enjoy what you hear, and maybe now you'll have an idea for what to listen to next…Maybe you had that already…maybe you were going to listen to one of our past episodes next? It's possible. As I said before, you can find the show archive at (and we do have easily a few hundred other soundcasts that we've featured over the years as possible future listening for you to pass the time with. There's so many more soundcasts out there now than there were when Succotash started...and not everyone is still around…but their archives usually are…often on Google podcasts, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Podbay, IheartRadio, just to name a few…and you should look into them if you are interested enough to do so.

Thank you for spending time with us, and if you wouldn't mind terribly, could you tell people about us? It's what we mean when we ask you to please pass the Succotash
