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.

Happy holiday limbo week, listener, as we say au revoir to 2022 and hello to 2023! Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, Episode 336. I’m Marc Hershon, your host this week for a Succotash Second Helping because I – like many of you – am on vacation from work this week and didn’t want to miss too much of it by cobbling together…I’m sorry…curating a collection of fresh soundcast clips for you this time out.

If you missed last week’s show, my partner in crime Tyson Saner (our "crime" being the promotion of soundcasts by playing clips from those shows) brought out a trio of snippets for Epi335 entitled “Clips For Christmas!” The shows featured included Hollywood Palms PodcastThe Besties, and The Viral Podcast. You can still grab it wherever you find your quality soundcasts – places like Apple & Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Soundcloud, Amazon Music, Spotify, Audible, iHeart Radio, Facebook, PodBay, Podchaser and, of course, at our homesite, which houses that episode and 334 more going back almost 12 years.

As I said, I’m off this week so I’ve opened the vault that holds the Succotash archives and digging way back 7 years or so – to our Epi119 that dropped on November 5, 2015. It features my interview with comedian and actor Brian Haley, in an episode entitled “Takin’ Haley’s Comments”.

This episode also features a double dose of our old Burst O’ Durst feature with comedian Will Durst. Update on Will’s condition: As many of you know, he suffered a stroke while waiting backstage for a show a little over 3 years ago and is still on the road to recovery. He’s been doing a little bit of performing in the past year – nothing too strenuous or long-winded, and he is still in a recovery facility undergoing daily physical therapy to get back walking again, as well as to regain full use of his left arm. The Go Fund Me account that was established back when this all began is still up and running, because the medical bills keep piling up. If you want to help out, just click over to (or use the direct link above…)

That's really what the show is this week, but it's a jumbo-sized episode running over an hour, so I hope you enjoy it!

Tyson plans to take a holiday week off next week, too, so watch this same feed for another Succotash Second Helping and, then after that, we’ll both be back with the live, up-to-the-minute soundcast clip madness again! Until then, have a Happy New Year!
