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 I welcome you to Succotash Epi257. Last week in Epi256, show creator Marc Hershon had a quartet of soundcast clips on offer to you from the soundcasts known as The Ron Burgundy Podcast, May I Elaborate? with JB Smoove, Comedy Has An Ouchie, and The Jock Doc Podcast. I can, with great confidence, say that it was an excellent show last week for potentially getting people interested in other folks' soundcasting efforts from around the globe.

I do actually listen to episodes of Succotash that I don't host because I am also a fan of the show which, as we are wont to point out lately, has been going on for 10 years now. One of the side effects of listening to as many soundcasts as I have been for over a decade now is that my mind is constantly exposed to new information in a way that apparently sacrifices some of my ability to recall certain things.

For example, in this week's edition of the show I've got clips for you from the soundcasts Blake's Takes for God's Sakes, Good Game Nice Try, and Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard…and I think I may have a memory of Succotash featuring clips from at least one of these soundcasts before…but I am not sure.…Also, I refuse to look it up because I am really not that worried about it.

So why bring it up? I gotta write about something. Like the fact this episode is sponsored by Henderson's Pants new Pushover Pants! See? I'm really just making one-sided conversation with you. And speaking of one-sided conversations…

Some soundcasts are hosted by one person, without a co-host and our first clip on offer is one of those:


Blake's Takes for God's Sakes
Through (often incoherent) free-association, comedian Blake Wexler improvises 45 minutes of takes on subjects ranging from his own massive legs to the best animated bears of all time. Our clip was harvested from the episode that dropped May 26th, 2021.

Good Game Nice Try
What happens when a Twitch star joins forces with the brains behind Conan’s Clueless Gamer? Pure video game magic! Each week Sonja Reid and Aaron Bleyaert nerd out with your favorite actors, musicians, comedians, gamers, and athletes who are as passionate about gaming as they are. From T-Pain venting about Pac-Man to AtomicMari becoming a real-life Lara Croft, guests share the games that they most loathe and love. Plus there will be epic stories, reviews, recommendations, and giveaways. I went back to the very beginning of this soundcasts' archive to take a clip from the first episode which posted on November 20th, 2020 and is called: T-Pain vs. Pac-Man.

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Dax Shepard loves talking to people. Endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, he finds people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. With more than a decade of sobriety, a degree in Anthropology and four years of improv training, Dax attempts, along with producer/sidekick Monica Padman, to discover human “truths” without any laboratory work, clinical trials or data collection. In other words, an Armchair Expert. Our clips is snipped from Epi331 that dropped recently, on May 31st, 2021, featuring returning guest Vincent D'Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Jurassic World, Men in Black).

After that we end up together…at the end. I hope you find some entertainment in this program, and that you might seek out more content from the creators that we're sampling for you. I hope you come back next week for more content from other people's soundcasts…or perhaps Mr. Hershon will do a "Chats" episode with a guest and you can enjoy THAT content.

Maybe you'll go back thru our archive at and find the mountain of entertainment that we've both made AND collected over the last 10 years…me for 8 years…maybe you will go to Apple Podcasts to rate and review our efforts favorably if it's how you feel about us. I hope you do. Maybe you'll tell other people about the content you heard within this or past episodes and recommend it to other people. That would be awesome. Maybe, you'll go to one of the many music purchasing websites that exist to buy a copy of the song "Hope" created by myself and onetime soundcaster and guest of Succotash Korey Epps. It has been available for purchase for a little over 2 years now. It's a little more than four minutes long and it costs somewhere between 1 and 2 dollars and then you can love it forever, and add it to your posi-corps dance party playlist to be enjoyed by anyone who is exposed to it. Trust me, it's worth it.

I'll catch you again in Epi259 so, until then, be decent to each other and please don't forget to pass the Succotash.
