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! Esta me, Tyson Saner. And it seems like only a couple of weeks ago I was putting the finishing touches on Episode 200 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. and sending it off to executive producer Marc Hershon to be posted as the final episode before our much-ballyhooed hiatus.

Well, if you're listening to this…it means the hiatus is over.

If you listened to Episode 201, hosted by my now sorta social distancing co-host Marc Hershon, then you already knew that. If you haven't listened to Episode 201, yet, you still can. It's a shorter episode than Succotash is, traditionally, so it won't take very long. And it explains why it is shorter, and why we are back, and really has some great content that should help you, the listener, get into the swing of things for this new phase of the soundcast formerly known as Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, now known as Succotash Shut-In. Coming to you weekly with alternating hosts Marc Hershon and yours truly, the afore-mentioned Tyson Saner.

I've got clips from Second Run Movie PodYou Need To See This, and Shenk. This episode is sponsored by Henderson's Pants new Breakaway Trousers, and by I know you're anxious to experience your now weekly dose of soundcast clips from the comedy world as it deals with the quarantine that everybody who doesn't want to die from COVID-19 is adhering to for the foreseeable future. So without further ado, it's clip time.


Second Run Movie Pod
Featuring Kory Epps and Adam Shumaker, on the Second Run Movie Pod the two hosts talk about films they've seen and whether or not they'd give them a second look. At least I believe that's what the show's about. In this epi, Kory and Adam gotta go fast as they talk about Sonic the Hedgehog and Birds of Prey.
You can find Kory Epps at Those are the deets provided on the blog. And there's a little note that says that was the last episode before the quarantine lockdown before the coronavirus and they hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We're trying, Kory!

You Need To See This
With Lucé and Cozi, the description of the show on their homesite says "Join hosts Lucé Tomlin-Brenner and Cozi Orlen every week as they argue for one film you absolutely need to watch. They'll cover everything from lesser known arthouse indies to 'How did you miss this?' blockbusters." Each episode at least one of the hosts has seen and loved thge film and at least one has missed it. Then, with no spoilers, they'll convince they'll convince you to spend your precious time watching it. That's a great idea. The clip I've got for you is from an episode posted on April 20, 2020. The guest? None other than the one of the co-hosts on The Nooner Podcast on Kevin Smith's Smodcast Network, Cassandra Cardenas. (She's also been, by the way, a guest of Anti Social Show, another soundcast that I co-host, actually, with Hunter Block who was a guest of Succotash in our previous season, check that out sometime.) Anyway, Cassandra and Cozy talk to Lucy about the incredibly fun British comedy Spice World from 1997. If you'd like to support this soundcast, you can click over to

Comedian Sara Wineshenk interviews comedians, musicians and artists living in Los Angeles. Topics include fashion, cannabis and comedy. The clip is from the episode that posted April 29 2020. called "Weather Women, Lava Lamps, and Dream Cars", in which live, from quarantine, Sara sits down to answer some questions, specifically about the topics mentioned in the title AND her favorite type of cat.
Not only can you find Shenk on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and Spotify, but you can email all fashion/guest-related questions to


And there it is. Episode 204, the second of Season 4 of Succotash Shut-In, The Soundcast Stimulus Package. Remember, if you go to you can find all the social media and website info that will help you find these shows with very little effort on your part.
