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 am your host this week for Epi259 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for joining me. Did you happen to catch last week's episode hosted by my co-host and every-other-show-host Marc Hershon? It was called "Mixin' Up A Mess O'Soundcasts" and featured clips from soundcasts Did You Get My Text?, Left-Handed Radio, May Contain Nuts, Stay F. Homekins, and a mini-clip from The Midnight Miracle. He also featured a clip from a recent Jock Doc Podcast in which he guest-starred. That episode of Succotash is still available to listen to on Apple and Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, and several other listening platforms so why not check it out when you get the chance? It's worth your time.

This week, I've got clips for you from soundcasts Self Esteem Party, Conversation For Adults, and Comedy Bang Bang...and since it's now officially Summer, we're brought to you by Henderson's Pants Wake Island Abbreviated Trousers.

I can't think of a single reason to delay the proceedings any further so…on with the clips!


Self Esteem Party
They call themselves "the perfect blend of comedy and honesty. Each week Alana Johnston interviews one of her showbiz pals and dives right into the core of who they are in this hilarious and painfully real podcast that explores all things Self Esteem." Our clip is from their episode from March 16, 2021, with guest Nick Wiger (Doughboys, How Did This Get Played?) talking about phone-free Sundays, Alana’s text anxiety and how Nick is now best friends with Alana’s dad!

Conversation For Adults
Culture-critic Jimi Izrael rediscovers America by talking to people you may or may not know, about everything. What comes up, comes out. Lots of fun. No filter. We're featuring a clip with guest Andy Kindler (a past Succotash guest - Epi55: Noshin' with Andy Kindler).

Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast
Join host Scott Aukerman (Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC, Mr. Show) for a weekly podcast that blends conversation and character work from today's funniest comedians. While Scott begins by traditionally interviewing the celebrities, the open-door policy means an assortment of eccentric oddballs can pop by at any moment to chat, compete in games, and engage in comic revelry. Our clip is from just back around the corner: June 21st of 2021, when director Edgar Wright returned along with Ron and Russell Mael of the band Sparks to talk to Scott all about their new documentary The Sparks Brothers.

If you wouldn't mind reviewing and rating us wherever that is possible you would be doing us the greatest of favors because it helps people find us. How did YOU find us? Did someone recommend us to you? Did you click on us out of curiosity because we were on the same page as something else you were looking for? Another option that I can't think of at the moment?

Anyway, "tune in" to our next episode which should be #260 and "see" what Marc Hershon cooks up for you. Thank you for listening, Be Decent To Each Other, and if someone ask you if you've heard anything interesting lately would you mind telling them about us? We would really appreciate it. It's what we mean when we say "Please, Pass The Succotash".
