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.

Hello, listener (current, future, or imagined…) I am Marc Hershon and this is Episode 293 or Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Between myself and your every-other-weekly cohost Tyson Saner, we usually features clips from comedy soundcasts to help you discover new and exciting shows to check out. But February seems to be chat month. My last show, Epi291, I spoke with Matt Knudsen about running his upcoming 10th and final LA Marathon to help raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, along with J. Keith Van Straaten about the live streaming edition last week of his show, Go Fact Yourself.

Then just last week, Tyson interviewed J. Elvis Weinstein – writer, comedian, actor, and a whole lot more. You can still catch that show, Episode 292, wherever fine soundcasts are streamed and/or downloaded: Stitcher, Apple or Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Soundcloud, Audible, PodBay, or our very own homesite,!

This week, I am talking to a buddy from the comedy boom days on the San Francisco standup scene, Tim Bedore. Tim was a radio announcer and personality for a long time – before and during his standup days – and he’s been running a soundcast for the past handful of years called An Agnostic’s Guide to Heaven. We talk about all of that and more besides in this episode, all of which is brought to you by Henderson’s Pants new Poncho Pants, the handy rain gear to cover your rear.

To get into this, I kick things off with a clip from Tim’s soundcast. He’s talking about kids, participation trophies, and pets. Then we take a moment to hear from Henderson’s Pants, after. Which we slide ride into my conversation with Tim.

I also tack on a little extra chatter I had with him after the closing credits - bonus convo!

Please remember to hang back in our same feed next week for another edition of the show with Tyson. Will it be clips? Chat? We won’t know until the episode drops next Tuesday at 12:01 AM.

Until then, get the COVID vaccine or booster if you haven’t, wear a mask if you need to, try not to be such a dick to people, and remember: The next time you’re filling your car with gas and the person at the next pump over asks if you’ve been listening to anything good lately, won’t you please pass the Succotash?
