Celebrating 10 years this year, Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 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 co-host Tyson Saner, booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years.

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. I am your host for the duration of this episode of Succotash numbering 273. Last week in Epi272, my co-host and every-other-show-host Marc Hershon brought the listener, which may or may not have included you, a Chats episode where he sat down to talk with John Ross Bowie (The Big Bang Theory, Speechless) of the Household Faces soundcast and, as Marc put it "literally dozens and dozens of things". It's a fun interview and I urge you to check it out soon.

This week it's a clip show for you, so I've got a trio of clips for you from the soundcasts Amazing Pop Culture Podcast, Life is Short with Justin Long, and WTF with Marc Maron. I've also got an advert from longtime non-paying sponsor Henderson's Pants and their new Leaf Behind Pants, just in time for Fall, to round out the episode nicely.


Amazing Pop Culture Podcast
This soundcast provides expert commentary on comedy, music, movies, TV, news, history and everything in between. Hosts Dags and Assistant Manager Mike Resin enjoy their childish comedy and light-hearted fun! Our clip is from August of this year, the episode entitled: "Masters of the Universe: the Kevin Smith Cut". The boys dip into the 2021 Netflix animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, developed by Kevin Smith.

Life is Short with Justin Long
Every episode features host Justin Long cracking open the heads of his guests to get to the good stuff: how they find meaning in life, what their favorite snack food is, which emoji they use most, etc. Our clip goes back a couple of years to pre-pandemic November, 2019, and guest Kevin Smith. They swap stories from Tusk, Zack and Miri Make A Porno, and all the other projects they’ve worked on together. And Kevin talks about how his Catholic upbringing was a gateway to his worship of superheroes.

WTF with Marc Maron
Back in March of this year, comedian/actor//writer Marc Maron welcomed Eddie Murphy in to talk about his standup days, Richard Pryor, his movie career, fatherhood and why now was the right time to make Coming 2 America. We clip off a little bitty piece of that convo.

That, then, concludes the first episode of October. I do hope you find some entertainment in what I've brought to you, and I hope it also perhaps gives you one or two ideas as to what you might choose to listen to next. If we piqued your interest in the slightest then we can safely put that one in the "win" column as it were.

Another thing before I go: There will be another episode of my other regular soundcast, Anti Social Show, coming out very soon…perhaps it might even have been released before you hear me mention it in this episode of Succotash. If it has been released by the time you hear Epi275 I will be sure to let you know. You can also look for it and other episodes of Anti Social Show on my Soundcloud which can be found linked alongside many other links for the various things I am currently or have been involved in over the years at including original music and soundcast remixes along with links to my YouTube channel where I offer LOADS of gaming content, mostly console, many retro, more Minecraft coming. (I suppose that's more like "a few other things" rather than "another thing" as previously stated and for that, I apologize.)

Thank you for listening. Be decent to each other. Please think of others when it comes to public health matters, and if anyone asks if you heard anything interesting recently won't you please…Pass The Succotash?
