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.
Saner, your host for this week in soundcast clippery
right here on Succotash Shut-In, The Soundcast
Stimulus Package. Last week and next week Marc
Hershon will have the hosting duties but you're
listening to this week's show right now — and here
we all are!
How have you
If this is your first
time here, WELCOME.
If you've listened
before, WELCOME BACK.
This show I've got great
clips coming from soundcasts the likes
of TalkyBox, Facial Recognition Comedy,
There's also a bit of
fake advertising genius from our longtime fake sponsor Henderson's
Pants & and selected reading from our other 100% fake sponsor
with the 100% real website: TrumPoetry.com.
It's a jam-packed more-or-less half-hour heap of audio enrichment
so let's get to it before it spoils!
TalkyBox Podcast was like 3 or 4 of your best friends (namely
hosts Jeremy, Dave and Kate)
talking about technology, video games, TV, movies, news, or the
zombie apocalypse for an hour. (We say "was" because this clip is
from their March 11, 2019 show - the most recent one that is up on
Apple Podcasts.) Listen in your car or on the toilet when you
should be working.
FRC founders Fizaa
Gunalan, and Zahra
Aliare a group of stand-up comedians who
identify as women of Indian, South Asian, or Arab descent. It was
founded to dispel the myth that “there can only be one,” as well as
to emphasize that “we are not the same person.” Our clip is from
just a couple of weeks ago - July 21st, 2020 - an episode entitled,
"Birthday Party". The hosts discuss Indian Matchmaking, colorism,
details from Mary Trump’s new book, and more! Who submitted
themself and their ex for an audition, unbeknownst to the ex?
In this sci-fi, dystopian tale of survival, created
Krueger & Warren
Davis, we follow Ace (voiced by Marty
Yu) as he scavenges for existence in a massive,
underground bunker. An outcast, he’s always on the run from
security forces, AI robots, and mutant creatures. Alone in this
world, his only desire is to escape Subterra and
see the sun for the first time in his life… But what is waiting for
him on the surface? Our clip is from June 18th, 2020, Episode
When you listen to this episode you'll know when the show is
pretty much — you can tell from the music. Music is a wonderful
thing is it not? I make some from time to time but mostly I listen.
I listen when I can find the time anyway… when I'm not listening to
soundcasts I'm just kind of doing life, you know? It's a relative
and completely subjective thing. What I'm saying is, few if any of
us actually have the proverbial "time in a bottle" that Jim Croce
sung so eloquently about so I take it as a great personal favor
when you listen to US here at Succotash
Shut-In (formally known as Succotash, The Comedy
Soundcast Soundcast), created and hosted by Marc Hershon who

if you found the time to listen to us again. If you like us, please
share us with others. We'd also appreciate that. It is exactly what
we mean when we gently remind you to "Please… Pass The
