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.

We've been teasing it for months but it's finally here: Our 12th anniversary episode of doing Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast! I'm going to keep this blog piece tight and sweet - and urge you to avail yourself of the actual episode, which you can find at your favorite download location OR at our homesite,

This episode — our last before embarking on a shortish hiatus — is double-hosted, featuring Marc Hershon and Tyson Saner. We talk about the shows' origins, its evolution during the Age of Soundcasting, and a number of the personalities we've met along the way. One of those personalities joins us as our Special Guest for this 12th year blowout and that's friend of Succotash and friend in real life, Travis Clark! He jumped into this madness the same time we did and, as part of that vaunted fraternity, weighs in with his own observations and opinions.

In the style of our earliest days' shows, this installment is a bit longer than our fare these days, clocking in at about an hour and 15 minutes. In addition to our three-way conversation, we have a number of congratulatory messages from friends and past guests of the show to share with you, from Dana Carvey, Jason "Jabs" McNamara, Hunter Block, Dean Haglund & Phil Leirness of Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Matt Knudsen, Davian Dent, Kat Sorens & Dom Risk of Strange Times Podcast, and Stu Buckland of The Angry Chimp and too many other soundcasts to name here.

In addition, we have an ad from our fake sponsor Henderson's Pants and we revisit a succotash recipe prepared by Chef Eddie Vedder.

Thanks, as always, to producer/engineers Joe Paulino and our booth announcer, Bill Heywatt! All in all, it's quite a shindig to celebrate our dozen years in this crazy business. Jump in and have fun! And we'll hopefully be back with some fresh version of Succotash in the not-too-distant future.

Thanks for listening!
