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...

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....

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,...

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...

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...

Succotash

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...

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. •...

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...

All right, all right, all right. Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly host for Succotash is here with you, dear, sweet listener. This is Episode 289 of THE Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. (What’s a “soundcast” you ask? It’s just a proprietary way of saying “podcast” so that we can sue people for trying to use the term sometime down the road.) I have my first Succotash Chat of Two Thousand and Twenty Two coming up in just moment, with longtime friend of the show Dana Carvey coming up in just a moment.

Before I go any further, and this is getting old having to do this every show, it seems, but another comic great got the light this past week or so. Louis Anderson joins fellow comedians Bob Saget and Norm McDonald in that big green room in the sky. A lot of the funny ones have been getting snapped up recently, which is a shame not only because of the families and friends they leave behind, but because it seems we need them more than ever down her. Thanks for all the laughs, Louie! RIP

Back to business. In case you missed last week’s installment, Epi288, entitled “Busy Showbiz Clips”, hosted by my comrade in soundcasting Tyson Saner, he was rockin’ a trio of soundcast clips from the likes of Resting Bitch with Ali MacofskyHollywood Handbook, and Dead Eyes! Don’t despair – you can still fill your ears with that treasure trove over at Spotify, Stitcher, Apple and Google Podcasts, Soundcloud, YouTube, Amazon Music, or our beloved homesite, SuccotashShow.com – where we feature links to all the shows we feature and as many of the host’s socials as we can find.

This episode, as the title implies, nay, as it clearly states, we’re Catchin' Up with Dana Carvey. Dana has been kind enough to be on the show a bunch of times since we began back in 2011. In fact, he was my co-host of Episode number THREE. So we won’t be covering things like his origins, or the Church Lady, or a lot of other past history stuff – you can find that in the Succotash archives. Instead, we mainly talk about the new comedy soundcast he’s kicked off with fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus David Spade entitled Fly On The Wall, where they interview cast member past and present, former hosts, musical guests, and more. We venture into a few other areas as well, including a little hint of an upcoming narrative soundcast he’s creating with his two sons, Dex and Tom Carvey.

We've got a little taste of the premiere episode of Fly On The Wall, with Dana, David, and their first guest, Chris Rock, getting into relationships and fame…

You can find Fly On The Wall all over the interwebs. They’re currently #1 on Apple Podcasts and probably others. They’ve already hit more than 300,00 downloads a week. And, right after this message from our fake sponsor, Henderson’s Pants, and their new Pedestrian Pants, I’ll be speaking with Dana Carvey himself. Stick around…

I always appreciate when Dana carves out a little time to visit with us. Don’t miss checking out Fly On The Wall. And here are Dana’s Twitter and Insta links.

There are still no calls on the Succotash Show and Runaway Truck Status Hotline but if you WERE to call 1 (818) 921-7212, we would play your message on an upcoming episode of the show. And if you are a comedy soundcaster, you don’t have to wait for Tyson or me to find your program. You can snip off a 3 to 5 minute chunk o’ fun and upload it directly to us at http://hightail.com/u/Succotash. Who knew there were so many ways to get in on the Succotash fun factory?!

I’m going to go before I overstay my welcome. Coming up in this same feed next week will be Tyson with the two hundred and ninetieth episode of this soundcast. If you hang around until after our announcer Bill Heywatt’s closing announcements, I stuck on a couple of extra minutes of me chatting up Dana from the start of our interview. Normally we would have reserved that for subscribers to our Patreon account but I haven’t actually gotten around to activating it yet…so knock yourself out.

Until you hear me again, be good to yourself and others, remember to where a goddamn mask, get your stupid COVID shots for fuck’s sake and, if anyone should happen to stope you in the aisle in the supermarket and ask if you’re heard anything good lately, won’t you please pass the Succotash?
