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, estas mi Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash Shut-In — I am your every-other week host bringing you this episode which is enumerated #246. Last week my co-host and every-other-week show-host Marc Hershon brought you episode @245 which was a "Chats" episode featuring a conversation with comedian and comedy writer for television, Michael Rowe. It's an fun episode that I recommend you listen to by going to our homesite at…of course if you are listening to this on a podcast service of some other kind such as Apple or Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, the Laughable app, iHeart Radio, or even YouTube, you should most definitely be able to listen to it and other episodes that way.

If this is your first time here, thank you for listening. Aside from chats with notably interesting folks, episodes of Succotash have been known to feature clips of soundcasts from all over the English-speaking parts of the world. This episode is one of those types of episodes. I've got clips from the soundcasts The Brendan Fraser Podcast, Fascination Street, and The Bill Bert Podcast. I've also got a seasonally appropriate bit of advertising for the new Spring Breakers from our longtime sponsor Henderson's Pants for you. So, without further ado, let's get to the clips shall we?


The Bill Bert Podcas‪t‬
In their Episode 50 Bill Burr and Bert Kreischer prattle about shrooms, the royal family, and surf dreams. Our clip contains the beginning of the aformentioned shroom-prattling...

Fascination Stree‪t‬
Hosted by Steve Owens, this soundcast introduces us to Fascinating People with Fascinating Stories. On March 14th, 2021, his guest is John Sylvain (Nooner) and a Game Creator (You Know It!‪) In our clip clip, the game You Know It! is discussed as well as Nooner which has been clipped on this program a few times in the almost 10 years that both that show and THIS show, Succotash have been in existence.

The Brendan Fraser Podcas‪t‬
Hosts Karla and Daniel talk anything and everything Brendan Fraser. And in their Epi 20, entitled "Lemmy or God‪?‬", they've gotten around to discussing the movie Airheads.  In this clip the duo breakdown elements of the plot of the movie with some observations about it's place in comedy history and its cult-film status.

That's what's in this week's installment. In April, Succotash will be celebrating 10 years of soundcasting. It's a little hard for me to believe it has been an entire decade. Maybe it is because my sense of time is somewhat more acute as I scrape the underside of 50…with three years to go admittedly but really, it feels close enough to me…and it only gets closer with every passing moment.

I started listening to podcasts around 2008 and have been participating or interacting with them in various ways since then. In October, my friend Hunter Block and I will have been creating our own soundcast, one Anti Social Show, for 5 years…incidentally, you can find links to that show and pretty much everything I currently have published sound or videowise at

This last year was dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic and this year has pretty much continued to be. Vaccines are finally available tho' so…that's a good thing. Thank you again for listening, tune in next week for Marc Hershon's episode 247, wear a mask, wash your hands, be decent to each other, and if you like the show's format and think other folks might also…please pass the Succotash!
