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.

Hello there, dear listener, and welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Our esteemed announcer, Bill Heywatt, kicks off the show in the usual fashion but I wanted to let you know, personally, that I am on vacation this week and that what we’re serving up for your for Episode 331 is actually a Succotash: Second Helping of Episode 217. It’s our show from August 25th, 2020, in the depths of the COVID pandemic, with my special guest Mike Birbiglia.

Mike’s on Broadway right now, scoring big with his new stage show, “The Old Man and The Pool”, but back then he was still putting the show together and you’ll get to hear him kicking around what he was thinking of doing. It’s a good chat, which I am going to kick back and listen to while I’m polishing off some Thanksgiving leftovers!

My over-qualified co-host Tyson Saner took a well-deserved vacay last week, which is why Epi331 was also a Succotash: Second Helping, featuring Tyson’s chat with J. Elvis Weinstein. You can still grab that anywhere finer soundcasts are streamed and/or downloaded. Tyson will be back next week for episode 333 – refreshed and re-invigorated – with a whole new helping of winter clips just for you. And I’ll be back the week after that, same as it ever was.
