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, a soundcast that invented the word "soundcast" which is, sadly, still what most people refer to "podcasts" as…which is also what THIS is, as anybody who has listened to this program over its last 11 years already knows.

Last week, in Epi316, show creator and executive producer Marc Hershon brought you an interview with Blaine Capatch who, in addition to being a standup comedian, is also a writer, a sketch performer, a husband, a father, a son, and a man who plays a druid character on the soundcast Nerd Poker, which has been featured on Succotash quite a few times over the years. It's a pretty fun episode and I recommend that you check it out at your earliest convenience.

You can find that episode and every episode of Succotash in the show archives over at

This week, in an episode entitled, "Reach Out And Clip Someone", I've got three clips for you from the soundcasts known as The Greatest Song Ever Sung (Poorly), Mom Can't Cook! A DCOM Podcast, and The Co-Founder.

This episode is brought to you by our 100% fake sponsor "Henderson's Pants"  and their new Passive Aggressive Pants, for when you just can't take it any more…but don't want anyone to know for sure.


The Greatest Song Ever Sung (Poorly)
From the show detail: "The podcast that takes karaoke exactly as seriously as it should be taken." Hosts Adam Wainwright and Ed Cunard discuss an aspect of karaoke or music, and play a short round of trivia on that topic, where one of them challenges the other with five questions related to the topic, along with an Impossible Bonus question. Then they're joined by someone with a connection to that topic—and feature that guest singing karaoke (when possible…) Our clip springs from a recent episode drop on July 27th, 2022: "Who Knows What Evil Lurks in the Heart of Karaoke Singers: The Villains of Karaoke with Tiana Hennings (of the Next Door Villain soundcast). She has her own karaoke villain up her sleeve, but also some great stories about singing karaoke in China while studying abroad, what karaoke is like for the more casual karaoke fan, and how it’s a great way to get out into a new place you’re living and meet people.

Mom Can't Cook! (A DCOM Podcast)
Join hosts Luke Westaway and Andy Farrant for their brand new podcast Mom Can’t Cook! in which they attempt to salvage something, anything from the fact that they’ve watched every single Disney Channel Original Movie from the late 90s and early 2000s. The title of their show comes from the premise that the mom character in the film is usually unable to cook, and this is considered richly comic. Our featured clip comes from their recently released premier episode "Smart House", from July 18th of this year. (The plot of this epic tale is that a young boy wins an intelligent house of the future, which starts off by stealing some of his blood, and then things go downhill from there.) The clip takes from the hosts' discussion of the capabilities of the "Smart House".

The Co-Founder
Starring Sunita Mani and Alexandra Shipp, two young start-up founders, both women of color, are on the brink of losing their company; a fate they narrowly avoid thanks to a hairbrained scheme to have their neighborhood barista— a white dude, of course— pretend to be the third founder in order to raise money. But when the barista reveals he has a scheme of his own to keep the company in his clutches, hijinks and hilarity ensue. The Co-Founder is a Realm production, starring Sunita Mani and Alexandra Shipp, and written by Alexis Wilkinson, Alexa Wejko, and Mimi Mondal.

Which brings us neatly to the end of the show that I put together for you, the listener. I do hope something in the program caught your attention and perhaps has carved out a niche in your time for another listen. I also hope you listen to us in the future should you continue to have niches in your schedule freely available to you that you would share with us.

I spoke earlier in the program about spending a little more time with some people that life, in the fashion in which my particular existence seems to be unfolding, has separated me from, and they from me. It seems to be the way of things. I bring it up because this coming weekend which will be the 20th and 21st of August, 2022, my brother is getting married. It's a pretty amazing time all around this year. Weddings have always given me a boost of optimism and this one does especially because I am so close to the people in question.

That's pretty much how it works…the life experiences that are subjective to one's own particular perspective.
I don't know anything about you, but when you have hope, I am happy for you. It might seem hard to find hope, but it is there to be had if you are open to it.

That all being said, I hope that you feel compelled to tell others of our existence. You'd be doing us a really big favor. It's what we are referring to when we ask you to "Please pass the Succotash."
