Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched 11 years ago 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 will be your host for the duration of this episode of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, that numbers 292. Last week in Epi291, my co-host and your every-other-show host Marc Hershon served up two generous chunks of chat featuring Matt Knudsen & J. Keith Van Stratten in each their separate segments. It's a great episode that you can still listen to on Stitcher, Apple and Google podcasts, iHeart Radio, Podbay, Soundcloud and many places (other than Spotify…) And, of course you can always find us and our show archive over at where this episode that you are listening to right now absolutely resides if you are, in fact, listening to it.

And if you ARE listening to this, then you will no doubt be delighted with what I've got in store for you. I managed to convince J. Elvis Weinstein to have a chat with me very recently. I was thrilled to be able to do so…and I'm still smiling about it. Co-host of soundcasting's Thought Spiral with past Succotash guest Andy Kindler, Mr. Weinstein is also a stand-up comedian, actor, filmmaker, musician and writer for television who has been in the business more-or-less since shortly after he began performing stand-up comedy at the age of 15. I don't want to talk too much at the head of the program and I already run the risk of doing so.

Our chat is only briefly interrupted by a word form our mythological sponsor, Henderson's Pants, and I must warn you: The sound is a bit rough at times, which is 100% on me. My audio actually dropped out a few times and I will be making no attempt to hide that as you may or may not notice.

I really did have a great time chatting with Mr. Weinstein. And I absolutely forgot a few things that I was going to ask about or mention but, for the most part, I satisfied my curiosity as a fanboy. I'm going to thank Mr. Weinstein again here for his willingness to sit and chat with me, and the patience he exhibited.

(BTW, I just found out that The Fiddling Horse, which he mentions during our chat, is available to watch for free on Tubi. So, I have that in my near future to look forward to.)

I also look forward to the next episode #293 that will be hosted by Marc Hershon…and who knows what wonders he has in store for you?…It's a rhetorical question. At any rate, thank you for listening, be decent to each other, be cautious when it comes to the health of others if not your own, and if someone asks you if you have heard anything good or interesting lately and you think of us, we'd really appreciate you if you'd please pass the Succotash?
