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 welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, Episode #323. Welcome! I'm glad you made it.

Last week on Epi322 of Succotash, show creator and executive producer Marc Hershon, whom I alternate hosting duties with, brought you a quartet of clips for a show that he titled "Interesting Behaviors". The clips were from the soundcasts known as My Neighbors Are Dead, The Doug Stanhope Podcast, Sarah Halstead’s Drinking During Business Hours, and Were You Raised By Wolves? They made for an enjoyable episode that I urge you to listen to at your earliest convenience. You can still find that episode and EVERY episode of Succotash going back to the first episodes from way back in 2011 at and also on most soundcast streaming services including, but probably not limited to, Apple & Google Podcasts, Spotify, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Amazon Music, Audible, iHeart Radio, PodBay, and Podchaser.

This week's episode, "Autumn Triple Play", contains three clips, one of each from the soundcasts known as On The Rocks: Where Celebrities & Cocktails Mix, Gutting the Sacred Cow", and Chatabix. This week's show is broght to you by our longtime (and 100% FAKE SPONSOR) Henderson's Pants and their new Fancy Pants for Fops.

Let's get to it.


Gutting The Sacred Cow
From the show's description: Standup comedians Kevin Gootee and Kevin Israel love films and they love arguing about them. But in this unique podcast; they invite guests to come in and argue why some of the most financially successful, beloved or acclaimed films are trash. But here's the twist, the film must meet 1 of these criteria: widely beloved, financial success, or critically acclaimed. So no dunking on Friday the 13th part 8, we all know that's an egregious piece of s--. We give a platform with those who have unpopular opinions to be bold enough to voice them. Some films that have faced scrutiny: Back to the Future, The Dark Knight, Toy Story, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the Matrix, and Die Hard. Can the guests persuade us? Or do we rip them a new one? Give us a listen and we'll easily prove that we belong on any top movie podcast list. My clip comes from very recently - September 17th, 2022 - Entitled "Noodles from the Offspring FLUSHES Christmas Vacation DOWN THE SEWER": Episode 152. joining Kevin Gootee as co-host for this installment is longtime friend Terry Loda.

On The Rocks: Where Celebrities & Cocktails Mix
TV & radio personality Alexander Rodriguez, along with co-host Stephanie Erb, sips and chats with your favorite celebrities from TV, film, Broadway, music, reality TV and pop culture in this weekly, entertainment, no holds barred talk show. Academy Award, Emmy Award, Grammy Award, Tony Award, Golden Globe Award winners – Alexander’s drank with them all! It's talk radio with a twist! Our clip is from back in the Spring of this year - March, to be a bit more precise - and is entitled Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles, Mulan, ER) Chats Diversity in Hollywood. I really liked hearing this interview. I chose a clip from the very beginning of it because I do love a big, detailed introduction and when an interview has the amount of warmth that this one clearly does.

This was recommended to me by none other than Davian Dent of Strange Times Podcast (longtime friend of Succotash and frequently clipped.) What's the show about? Basically, comedians David Earl & Joe Gillingham chat drivel and nonsense. A shambolic Breakfast Show with Special Guests and regular contributors. The clip we have dropped on September 12th, 2022, featuring guest Doug Stanhope.

Wow, it seems like only a few minutes ago I was writing the intro to the show and now this bit at the end needs writing as well. Isn't that the way of things? I do hope you found something enjoyable in the program tonight…I say "tonight" for a couple of reasons, one is that it is actually night when I am recording this part, and the other is because, more often that not, I used to say that regardless of what time of day it was when I recorded…and now I still do.

I appreciate your taking some of your time out to listen to what I selected for you. If you are now inspired to learn more about the entertainments you were just exposed to, you are free to do that. Maybe you'll come back to listen to the next show which would be Epi324 and will most likely be hosted by Marc Hershon. Maybe you've already listened to #324 because it is far enough in the future that you are listening to the episodes backwards, or just generally out-of-sequence for whatever reason you choose.

Maybe you are an electric audio archivist far into the future when myself and everyone else I know, or knew of, are long dead and you are navigating the audio virtually with A.I. generated art to represent us soundcaster ghosts visually in some way. In any of those scenarios I do hope you have the oppourtunity to share us with others. We'd really appreciate it.

Maybe, in your present, I still have the webpage which you could visit to check out links to another soundcast I co-host with Hunter Block called "Anti Social Show". There are also links to my YouTube channel which mostly features videos of myself playing video games. At this point in history, it is September of 2022 so I've just recently published an episode where I play "Slime Rancher 2" and give my first impressions of it.

And finally, maybe, when you are checking those things out you will remember that you listened to this show at some point and discovered a soundcast that you will listen to every episode that you possibly can of it. Sometimes it works that way. Thank you for listening, be decent to each other and please remember to pass the Succotash.
