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.

Saluton! Estas me, Tyson Saner. I am your every-other-epi host for this iteration of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, currently called Succotash Shut-In, The Soundcast Stimulus Package. But you probably know by now because you clicked on it, and we thank you for it. Next week Marc Hershon will be doing the hosting duties but this week is mine and welcome to it.

I've got clips for you from a handful of soundcasts you may want to listen to more of in the future. That's how this works. I've got clips from Profiles in EccentricityStrange Times, and Nooner. This episode of Succotash is (fake) sponsored by Henderson's Pants' Massage-O-Pedic Trousers and

And away we go…


Profiles in Eccentricities
First up: Profiles in Eccentricities from Starburns Audio. It's a show about weirdos, hosted by comedians John FahyAaron Pita, and Matt Brousseau. Each episode tells a tale about someone who lives afoul of the rules most of us live by. What I've chosen for you is from the show from April 15, 2020. It profiles Franz Kafka, and it's called "Franz Kafka: Neurotic Maniac. The episode's description reads: This week Matt treats the boys to the life of the famously strange author of The Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka. Despondent in relationships and acutely tormented by his father, Kafka is an overly neurotic figure awaiting judgment.

You can email them at, and you can listen to them on Stitcher and Apple Podcasts, and they even have a YouTube presence.

Strange Times
From Davian DentKat Sorens, and Dom Risk, longtime listeners of Succotash will know that we have clipped Strange Times quite a few times. And in fact, we have also had David Dent on as a guest at least twice. I've chosen a clip for you from the May 9 show 2020 entitled invisible Jews. His description says "This week our wayward sons turn their third eye to cyclists, furlough life, Carol Baskin, coronavirus, locked-down competitiveness, and sex music. Our clip features talk about VE day.

Our final selection is from the Nooner soundcast on the Smodcast Network, the weekly live show from Kevin Smith's soundcast internet radio. It's currently hosted by Marty YuSteven KruegerCassandra Cardenes, and John Sylvain. This clip is from Episode 191 from July 9, of 2019. It's description reads: "Today on a very special Nooner the MIRPs (Minor Internet Radio Personality - As far as I know that term was coined by Nooner…), the MIRPs tried D&D for the first time. John Sylvain DM's - or "dungeon master's" with two special guest stars joining the adventure. Don't worry, there's still the casual racism, odd profanities, frequent over-talking, and a couple current event references tossed in, too. But then there's the looming threat of the dreaded Lich monster."

Now recently, on May 12 2020, the gang at Nooner had another Dungeons and Dragons episode that you can listen to on Soundcloud, on Stitcher, on Apple Podcasts and wherever fine podcasts are purchased and eaten. During a regular show. I maintain a running Tumblr commentary, and you can reach out to Nooner via email by clicking the link.


Congratulations! You made it to the end! Give yourself a boo-ya. Do people still say "boo-ya"? Have the millennials re appropriated it yet? Or perhaps the generation or two that came after them? How long does it take to make a cultural generation anyway? It's not important. It's a largely made-up idea, anyway.

Speaking of anyway, I hope you enjoyed these few ear morsels I have gathered for your listening experience. And if you do decide to listen to more of the shows I've selected for you, then I've done my job successfully. You can find the homesites and social media links to all these shows we feature on the homesite. So why not reach out to those shows and tell them what you think of their material? Tell 'em Succotash Shut-In sent you - we'd appreciate that a great deal. After all, it's what we mean when we ask you to please pass the Succotash.
