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, your host for this episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, that numbers #271. This show is now in it's 10th year. Did you know that? Have you been here before? If not, welcome! If so, welcome back!

If you are looking for a soundcast that tells you about other peoples' soundcasts on a regular basis then you've come to the right place. It's what we do here at Succotash…for 10 years now. Yes, I know I already said that…it's STILL sinking in for me.

Those of you who listened to last week's episode will already know that it was hosted by this soundcast's creator and executive producer Marc Hershon. Number #270 it was and there was some top-notch content from the soundcasts known as The Ajumma Show", Geto Boys Reloaded", and Household Faces. There was also a funny musical clip found by Patton Oswalt by a singer/musician by the name of Nick Lutsko. It was a folk song comprised of the bizarre rantings of someone called "Alex Jones". This wasn't samples that were auto-tuned BTW, this was someone singing while a guitar was also playing. (I understand that that is a clunky way to put that. I also understand that "that that" is a strange sounding way to say anything. I usually turn the first "that" into a "thet" so it sounds like "thet that" when I use my outside voice.)

ANYWAY…Epi270 also contained a clip of the late great Norm Macdonald from an episode of Norm Macdonald Live, a podcast that he had hosted with Adam Eget back in 2013. The show has 3 seasons of interviews and is back on YouTube after having been made unavailable in 2018 for some time. The clip had previously been featured on Succotash #89 and was part of an interview that Mr. Macdonald had conducted with the wonderful Carl Reiner. Rest In Peace both of them.

This week, I've got clips from the soundcasts Dad Pants, Shenk and The Endless Honeymoon Podcast. This episode is sponsored by Henderson's Pants new Bivouac Pants! I do hope you enjoy what I've selected…


Dad Pants
This first clip was submitted among a handful of clips by a new show from some old friends. Stuart Buckland had a show back in the day called The Angry Chimp, which we featured in Epi84. He then eclipsed that 'cast in favor of What A Pair of Trousers, clipped in our Epi88. The Angry Chimp resurfaced and we had a clip in Epi107. Finally, back in Epi170 in 2018, Stu popped up again with the same lads and a new show called Welcome to Television. Now these lads are more or less dads with a suitably titled show: Dad Pants. It took Stu’s friend Monty Leadon having a baby and asking the odd random question to make him realize that he didn’t really talk to anyone about his parenting. Simultaneously, Monty found himself anxious about his impending fatherhood and wasn’t sure how to start conversations about how he was feeling. The Dad Pants soundcast was born because when a microphone is in front of your face, you have to talk! The premise is that Monty asks Stu and a panel of other dads questions about what he is about to go through. I've selected the clip called "Prepping for Hospital", where the dads fill Monty in on what he needs to pack for the hospital.

Host Sara Weinshenk sits down to talk to fellow comedian Kimberly Congdon (host of Broad Topix), discussing everything from mermaid dick to ass play plus ideal first dates and the podcast they are launching together. (They had a soundcast together called Stoned Science that I clipped for Epi168 waaaaay back in early 2018. They also have a new soundcast in the works called The Show.)

The Endless Honeymoon Podcast
Natasha Leggero and Moshe Kasher, married comedians, are using their hilariously hard-won wisdom on relationships and building on their hit Netflix special to help others by offering love advice to callers while simultaneously examining the ups and downs of their own relationship! Our clip comes from a recent show where their guest was Weird Al Yankovic. They discuss Al being perfectly suited to quarantine and hypothetically living to 120, and they give advice to a caller struggling to find meaning after ending a serious relationship.

This, then, represents the end of this episode IF you were listening instead of reading this. You can reach me on social media, specifically Twitter and Instagram at @revt23 and let me know how much (or how little) you may have enjoyed this installment. I'm pretty interactive given the chance.

Hey…change of topic…do you enjoy watching videos on YouTube to alleviate boredom, or perhaps to facilitate it? I've got plenty of gaming videos over at the channel that bears my name - Tyson Saner - including a playlist of over 10 hours of "Minecraft ASMR" footage that just might put you to sleep. It also might captivate you. I'm building a sort-of pyramid house right next to an actual pyramid. It's a trip. I'm also still theoretically giving out shout-outs for people who guessed the theme in Epi 269 by using the hashtag #Epi269Theme on Twitter.…no takers yet as far as I can see…anyway, thank you again for listening.

Be decent to each other, and if someone asks you if you've heard something interesting lately, and you'd be telling the truth by doing so, won't you please pass the Succotash?
