Succotash Epi287: Clippin' A Crop Of Clips
Release Date: 01/11/2022
Saluton, estas mi , and I both happily and gratefully welcome you to this episode of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, whose number is 306. Could I have picked a clunkier way to say that? … Perhaps so. It's hard to say. It is, however, VERY easy to say "thank you for listening" so I'll do that now. Thank you for listening, if you've made it this far into the intro I think we will get along just fine. I share hosting duties of this podcast roughly every other week with who created this show 11 years ago to showcase other folks' podcasts in a "Whitman's Sampler"-style format, and...info_outline Succotash Epi305: Clips On A Whim
Howdy, listener! As our esteemed announcer Bill Heywatt has so aptly stated, you're listening to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and I am , your host for the 305th edition of this 11-year-old audio entertainment production series. But I am only one of two hosts of Succotash. The other is , and the two of us usually switch off hosting every other episode of the show so that this awesome task doesn’t become too overwhelming and, also, so we can take time sampling and harvesting the finest – or at least most interesting – of what the legions of comedy soundcasts have to offer....info_outline Succotash Epi304: A Tasty Trio
Saluton, estas mi and I will be your host for this episode of Succotash that numbers 304. Last week in Epi303, my co-host and your more-or-less every-other-show host brought you a "Chats" episode that featured a conversation with , who — as described by Mr. Hershon in last week's episode description — "is a multi-hyphenate threat as they used to say: comedian-writer-director-producer, and (as of the pandemic)host of a soundcast called Creativity in Captivity. It's a terrific episode with some fascinating conversation and I encourage you to listen to it when you get the chance,...info_outline Succotash Epi303: Gettin' Creative with Pat Hazell
I AM , your host for this Epi303 edition of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Just back from a 9-day vacation in sunny Hawaii, and I’m all rested and recharged. Not surprisingly, world events are still nothing to come home to – embattled Ukraine, Roe v Wade in imminent danger of being overturned by the Not-So-Supreme Court, and COVID still bopping along with surges and spikes and people pretty much pretending it’s all better now. Yay. To take our minds off of such things, at least for a little while, I have a great guest I’m chatting with in this episode, and I’ll tell...info_outline Succotash Epi302: A Very Special Episode
Saluton, estas mi and I will be you host for this, I don't know that there is a better way to put this, "Very Special Episode" of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast that numbers #302. Before I get into what I mean I'd like to take a moment to remind you that Succotash celebrated 11 years of showcasing other soundcasters via clips of their efforts. That coincided with our 300th episode, which executive producer and show creator and I co-hosted simultaneously - which might sound like an odd way to put it, but it shouldn't be odd to regular listeners who know that Mr. Hershon and I have...info_outline Succotash Epi301: 4 Clips to Kick Our 11th Year into Gear!
Greetings, listener! I’ll be your host, , for Episode 301 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, which I’m calling “4 Clips to Kick Our 11th Year into Gear”! Yup. 11 years of snipping clips and chatting up folks from soundcasts or from soundcast-adjacent endeavors. If you missed last week’s extravaganza for Epi300, featuring both me and my normally every-other-week co-host literally co-hosting together. We each pulled three clips from the Succotash archives and stitched them together right before your ears, to create a triple—sized episode. We included: The opening few...info_outline Succotash Epi300: 11 Years of Soundcasting!!!
Kind of unbelievable - 300 EPISODES! This jumbo-sized installment of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, is being perpetrated jointly by your co-hosts and , and features a lot of us yakking back and forth about this show's 11 years of bringing you clips from soundcasts and also many, many interviews with comedians, and soundcasts, and comedian-soundcasters. We each selected three "moments" from the stockpile of shows, including: • The opening few minutes of the second Succotash test show, before there was a theme, an announcer, or even Henderson's Pants. •...info_outline Succotash Epi299: Martin Olson Goes to Hell
Hello, listener (or listener-to-be…)! If you’re no stranger to this feed, welcome back! If this is all new to you, glad to have you auditing the show. This is Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and I’m your host, , for Episode 299, which I’m calling “Martin Olson Goes to Hell.” I’ll tell you why in a moment. First, I’ll ask if you checked out LAST week’s show, Epi298, entitled “2 Hobbits, 2 Pals, and a Bee”, with my kickass, worldly co-host . He featured a triad of soundcast clips from the likes of The Friendship Onion, The Deep Dive with Jessica...info_outline Succotash Epi298: 2 Hobbits, 2 Pals & A Bee
Saluton, estas mi , and welcome to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, Epi298. Now, this is the part of the episode where I usually mention what happened "last week" on Succotash…and I use quotations because usually I have heard the episode for the previous week that is hosted by show creator and executive producer before I start putting together a show…In this case, I began work on this episode before Epi296 released so, unfortunately, I have no idea what happened in Epi297. (I mean, by the time you listen to this I certainly will have listened to Epi297 and, hopefully, so will...info_outline Succotash Epi297: 3 Clips, 1 Teaser & A Slice
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Whether you’re downloading this soundcast or are streaming it from somewhere on the World Wide Web, as the host of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I am delighted that you’re listening. Apologies for not knowing your name, but I’m , the host, executive producer, and founder of this little slice of Soundcastville, which kicked off just 2 weeks shy of 11 years ago. Before I get into what’s in store for you in the next half hour or so, let me ask if you had a chance to lay ears on last week’s , hosted by my fastidious and factually accurate co-host ....info_outline
Happy Two Thousand and Twenty Two, worthy listener! I'm Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly-host of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Where we usually feature snippets from our fine folks’ comedy soundcasts and tell you where you can go find them for yourself in their entirety. We also occasionally do interviews, and I may have one of those the next time I hold court here in the Succotashery, but today I’m “Clippin’ A Crop of Clips” for you, as the title suggests.
And I am coming to you from my plush new all-electric mobile studio, Studio MX-30. (I just got Mazda’s first EV car and it’s pretty cool – I actually parked at a charging station while I was recording this episode so if you hear any weird clicks and hums, that’s the Succotash Mobile Studio chowing down in the background.
Before I get to the lush harvest of soundcastery in store, let me shake the reminder tree to see if you caught our last installment, Epi286, curated by this show’s alternating host Tyson Saner. Shame on you if you missed it because it was chock full of fun with clips from the likes of soundcasts The Dave Hill Goodtime Hour, Depresh Mode, and Multiverse of Badness. That ‘sode is still up where you can grab it from all of soundcasting’s major distribution point: Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Amazon Music, Soundcloud, Audible, YouTube and, of course, on our very own homesite SuccotashShow.com!
As for this week’s episode, I’ve got a few soundcasts that have been around a bit, and I’ve clipped a preview of a brand new show that doesn’t start until next week! They are namely Legal Geeks, Wiz World Live, Muriel’s Murders, and Dear Earth, I’m Really Sorry. Henderson’s Pants is taking a week off of sponsoring us this week to make way for an old fake sponsor who first got started with us back in our first year of doing business – it’s investment barrister Mike Diké.
Jock Doc Podcast
Before I get into the regular clips, I’ve got a bit of a bonus clip for you. Just before Christmas for Succotash Epi284, I chatted up Dr. London Smith and his producer Cameron Clark from the Jock Doc Podcast. The day before I had appeared as a guest on their show, and was interviewed as Dokter Andrew Minutiae, an amateur expert in nanotechnology.
Dear Earth, I’m Really Sorry
This next clip is from a brand new show. So new, in fact, that it doesn’t begin dropping until next week, on January 20th. I got a lovely note from the creator, Amy Thorstenson, telling me about it. "…I wanted to reach out and let you know that I have a new pod coming out this month called Dear Earth, I'm Really Sorry. It's a story about two siblings (an incompetent brother and a Frankenstein sister) who take over the family laboratory after their father, the greatest mad scientist on Earth, disappears. The first episode will launch on 1/20/22.” Thanks, Amy! She sent along some of the earlier episodes so I could get a listen and I figured why should I be so lucky? I reached out and asked if we could play a clip before the show’s official launch and she replied, “Sure! Why not?"
The true crime murder-slash-comedy soundcast is among the most popular genres and has been for a while. I don’t know if you’re a fan, but I do know that Nick Casalini doesn’t get what all the hoopla is about. His other half, Muriel Montgomery, is coocoo for Cocoa Puffs over the true crime thing. You may know them both from the soundcast Hella In Your Thirties. While that show is still clanking along, they started a new show this past year called Muriel’s Murders. Muriel keeps finding famous and not-so-famous cases to try and blow Nick’s mind. A recent episode, entitled “Dr. Bogle and Mrs. Chandler – The Confession”, about a case set down under in Australia, yielded our featured snippet.
I really like this next show. First time we’re clipping it on Succotash but not the first time we’ve heard from co-host host Josh Gilliland. He was a drop-in guest for Epi162 in January, 2018, during what was going to be our last ever installment – a live show during the Annual San Francisco Sketchfest. Josh hosts Legal Geeks, where he and Jessica Mederson, both actual attorneys, examine hypothetical cases from science fiction movies, comic books, TV shows and other worthy subject. They recently dove into the privacy issues plaguing a young man named Peter Parker, as chronicled in the documentary Spider-Man: No Way Home. Warning: There may be some spoilers in here for those who haven’t seen the movie yet.
Wiz World Live
Our final offering this episode was a show actually recommended to me by Dr. London Smith, who was featured in the first clip this episode, from the Jock Doc Podcast. Wiz World Live only recently has moved into the soundcast realm but they’ve been doing a video show for a while. Billed as “Earth’s only talk show by wizards, for mortals,” they say that “each episode gives you a peek into the very real magickal world around you.” The hosts, Amoenus Franco and Summersbane, are immortal which must be what allows them to survive interview entities from the multiverse! Our clips has them testing out the awesome powers of Tristán, the Trivia Troll.
Wrapping it up, if you’ve been looking for my reviews as part of This Week in Comedy Podcasts on Vulture.com so far in 2022, stand down. I heard from my excellent editor, Megh Wright, and there’s a format change coming down where we’ll just be doing that rundown once a month. So I think we’ll be dropping the next column in the very last week of January.
Remember that Tyson will be here next week with Epi288 with some more soundcastery magic for you. And we’re still taking your suggestions and comments for anything having to do with the show – stuff you’d like to see, or rather hear us do as we steam towards our 11th Anniversary coming up in April. Pop a note to @SuccotashShow in the socials or email Tyson or Marc @ SuccotashShow.com.
See you back here in a couple of weeks. I think that’s going to be an interview – let’s see what happens. Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of Bob Saget, who passed away much too young this past weekend just after performing in Orlando, Florida. Just a reminder to keep in contact with those you hold dear or can even stand a little bit. And if anyone asks if you’ve heard anything good lately, please remember to pass the Succotash!
