Succotash Chats Epi195: Jawin' with Jesse Camp

Saluton estas mi, Tyson Saner, your host for the duration of this "Chats" episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for joining us.

I really have got a rare treat for you, folks. Some of you have seen the thumbnail for this episode and know what's coming but, for those of you who may have possibly downloaded this episode or otherwise added it to your queue without looking at it, first — seriously , thank you — and second, our guest is none other than television personality, musician, songwriter, filmmaker, and first-year winner of MTV's Wanna Be a VJ: Jesse Camp!

Mr. Camp was on two episodes of the Harmontown soundcast (episodes 316 & 317), which I recently had a chance to catch up on. And he had such a positive attitude about life I felt compelled to reach out to him.

Some of you might recall that Jesse was reported to have gone missing for about a week around the middle of 2018, and I'm telling you that here because we don't really talk about it very much if at all in this chat. He went into great detail on those aformentioned episodes of "Harmontown" so you can listen to that story there if you were to desire to do so.

For the most part we talked about the present and the future... in fact there will most likely be a "Part 2" released sometime after this because we did have a pretty interesting time together...on the phone... 

We've also got another TRIPLE shot of Raging Moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment, as well as selected readings from our Fake Sponser with a 100% Real Website .

That is all that makes up this installment of our Succotash Chats episode with Jesse Camp. I hope that you've enjoyed it as much as I have and you'll be back to listen to our next episode which is more likely to be a "Clips" episode because I've been listening to some soundcasts that I really want to share with you next time…

I mean, don't get me wrong, I enjoy sharing each and every soundcast that I clip for the show. Part of the enjoyment that I derive from my journey around the internet is the opportunity to listen to people have conversations…and tell stories…and play games…often with sound effects. I'll be drawn in by the promise of a subject I might happen to be interested in at that point in time…

Quite often, I will find myself researching things that I had not previously heard of until they were mentioned on a soundcast somewhere. And that will invariably lead me to find another soundcast that I had not previously been aware of for one reason or another…and I will likely be clipping that soundcast for a future "clips" episode…and then YOU will get a taste of a soundcast that may or may not have ever been on your radar.

Who knows? How do you find the soundcast or casts that YOU listen to? I'll take my answer off-air…

Thank you again for listening and if you would be so kind...could we possible ask you, nay IMPLORE you, to please pass the Succotash?

Succotash Clips Epi104: Summerin' Succotash

Saluton! Ne estas kulero…Welcome to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I am your host Tyson Saner. I've got a show for you that's bursting with content for your ears.

Earlier today I was thinking about how strange it is that many of us refer to soundcasts as "shows"…because, aside from those with a visual component such as video or something like it…mostly soundcasts are…well, SOUND…You can't really see sound…just that which it effects. So podcasts, like radio shows before them, would more accurately be referred to as "tells"…but it's silly to think about re-naming everything simply because of logic.

I mean, I'd have to re-brand my other soundcast "Anti Social Show" to "Anti Social Tell"…and that's just weird…the acronym sucks too…it's "AST"…I don't think that's a thing. I Googled it and it's not a word…it's not an English word at any rate. Let's see. If I put it through Google Translate, I see it means "branch" in…German. So, mystery solved.

Anyway, in this edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I've got clips from The TryPod, The One In Twenty Show, You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes, Let's Write An Episode, Dr. Drew After Dark, and Thick Skin with Jeff Ross.

We've also got a TRIPLE dose of Raging Moderate Will Durst's "Burst O Durst" segments. That's right, THREE! There's the latest edition of "Let's Review" from Succotash executive producer Marc Hershon, And, of course, a reading from, our Fake Sponsor with a real website with real poetry.

It's a lot of content so let's get to it


The TryPodThe Try Guys have swam with sharks, survived in the wild, shocked themselves with birthing simulators, and risked their lives for their videos. In this weekly podcast they dissect their experiences as internet creators and best friends who have made a living failing upwards. Our clips is from their first epi which dropped back in May of this year, entitled "Sex Tapes & First Dates".

Let's Write an Episode
Comedian Tommy Oler and friends get together to perform and write fake episodes of your favorite shows from the past and present, audio drama style. Listen as some of your most beloved characters go on adventures never before possible. Our clip is from their second-ever episode, featuring Tommy, KC Shorina, and NIck Cox, who get together to write their own episode of the hit 90's TV show "Saved By The Bell.

Dr. Drew After Dark
Dr. Drew Pinsky is a board-certified internist and one of America's most trusted physicians. On Dr. Drew After Dark, he shares his professional opinion about all of the weirdest stuff on the Internet. The clip we're featuring hails from Epi8, which first hit the web back in April of this year. In it is a miniature recreation of "Loveline", a late-night radio advice program that Dr. Drew hosted with radio personality and podcaster Adam Carolla…on which Andy Dick had been a guest multiple times. …

You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes

A weekly comedy interview podcast, You Made It Weird originated under the premise that Holmes would ask his guest, usually a fellow comedian, about three "weird" things he knew about them, but the show has since evolved into a much more loose conversation about such complex topics as comedy, religion, and sexuality. Everybody has secret weirdness, comedian Pete Holmes gets comedians to share theirs including, in an episode from the end of last year, the unique, weird, and wonderful comedy brain of Paula Poundstone.

The One in Twenty Show 
An interview-based podcast hosted by Evan Rogers, The One in Twenty Show is rooted in finding the next one in twenty individuals who are pursuing their passions with success. Our clip is from Epi38 from this past May, and features guest Jen Matichuk, a multi-faceted creator from Canada — most known for her work with Rhett and Link as a brand coordinator and producer on Good Mythical Morning.

Thick Skin with Jeff Ross
 "Life is hard. Let's get through it together." Join Jeff Ross, The Roastmaster General, as he takes on "Touchy Subjects", interviews people smarter than him and pays tribute to the recently deceased, so they can properly Roast In Peace. The clip we're featuring was from a show just a couple of weeks ago, entitled "Why I Roasted Anne Frank" on what would have been her 90th Birthday.

And there's another "tell over and done with." No, that doesn't sound good at all…I don't think it will catch on any time soon. You know what could though? This soundcast. How?…I haven't worked that part out much beyond a semi-aggressive word-of-mouth campaign…For example, I have a show on my YouTube channel called Tyson Saner: Gamer where I play video games and give commentary of my experiences. At the end of every episode I mention Succotash The Comedy Souncast Soundcast and how you can find its website at if one was so inclined to do so.

I also mention Anti Social Show a podcast I co-host that, assuming you have heard this episode from the beginning, you may well remember me mentioning it…and finally I mention a little show called Gaming Outside My Comfort Zone which is a gaming show that my wife hosts on her YouTube channel which is called "SexxyLaura27Games".

That's my attempt at giving word-of-mouth about this and other ongoing projects…and THIS is my attempt to do that very thing in your ears if you are listening…or hearing that little voice in your head that you hear while reading things  - If and/or when you are reading things in your head.

And if you were so inclined to tell anyone about Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast you would be performing an intense act of kindness toward us…and we would appreciate that a great deal…for that is what we mean when we ask you to Please Pass The Succotash

Succotash Clips Epi193: Gettin' Back To Business

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It's been a while but what can I say? Life happens. I'm still listening to soundcasts and looking for other soundcasts to listen to so I already have some listened to for the next show.

What that means, of course, is that you have a greater chance of listening to a new show two weeks from the release of this episode than you did before I made sure to get extra listening done. I'm really trying to keep making these for those of you who are nice enough to listen to us and really, most sincerely, thank YOU for listening.

This Epi193 features clips from: Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited, Confidently Insecure with Kelsey Darragh, Nothin Burger Podcast, Giamatti! Giamatti! Giamatti!, The Life Beyond Our Mildest Dreams, and All Things Comedy Live.

I've also got a double dose of political comedian and social commentator Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment, a reading from our 100% FAKE SPONSOR (but Very Real Website) "", and Executive Producer Marc Hershon has been gracious enough to send along another Let's Review segment for this program, featuring content from the soundcast Minor Adventures with Topher Grace.

It's a healthily portioned show and I can't wait to serve it to you.


Giamatti! Giamatti! Giamatti! (with Sam and Dan)
Dedicated to the academic discussion of the acclaimed actor, Paul Giamatti. Every week hosts Dan Brenneman & Sam Calderon move through a new piece in the Paul canon. ("Blessed be the Giamatti, praise be.") Our clips is from their second epi, "His Earliest Cameos", and it scrapes the surface of their bigger discussion on the experience that was attempting to watch a film called She'll Take Romance, whose cast included none other than…Paul Giamatti.

Nothin Burger Podcast
This very new soundcast features hosts Daniel Kaufman and Eric Ohlsen talking comedy, science, politics, or whatever else is on their minds. We've gotten a clip from the premiere episode from this past April, with guest Tony Martin — a former writer on The Simpsons — and it's from a segment of the show where they were talking about, strangely enough, The Simpsons.

Mildest Dreams
The Life Beyond Our Mildest Dreams soundcast offers an unfiltered, funny, insider's look at sobriety and its fringe culture. With hosts Owen Bowness and John Moses, our featured clip comes from a show that dropped in September of last year, and had guest Joe List along for the chat. The clip covers part of the trio's discussion about Buddhism.

All Things Comedy Live (with Bill Burr and Al Madrigal)

All Things Comedy soundcast network founders Bill Burr and Al Madrigal are joined by fellow comics for an unconventional hour-long show, featuring Bobby Lee, Rory Scovel, and Gareth Reynolds. The epi originally posted April 14th, 2016, our clip includes the beginning of the interview segment with Rory.

Confidently Insecure 
Touted as "the podcast where we're absolutely sure we don't know everything," host Kelsey Darragh is joined by guest Eugene Lee Yang of The Try Guys crew. Taken from the first episode, which only just dropped in April of this year, the clip we have features Kelsey and Eugene discussing self-esteem, among other things…

Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited
Friend of Succotash Darren Staley sent in this clip, featuring Paul Provenza chatting it up about his TV show The Green Room with Darren and the titular Dylan Brody. (If YOU are a comedy soundcaster, you can do what Darren did and upload a 3-5 minute clip of your show directly to us, at, and we'll feature it on the show!)

Whew! That was a whole lotta show. I hope you found some of it entertaining. If you enjoyed any of the content in any of those clips and you're looking to say something nice to someone, you may have noticed that a great many soundcasters and Podcasters are on Twitter,which makes it very easy and convenient to reach out to them.

Many of them are actually pretty receptive to positive feedback although I imagine many would also be fairly surprised. Not because they don't deserve the praise but because — I don't know if you noticed this — people can be pretty darn negative with their comments to each other on Twitter. Who knows, maybe we can get kindness trending…

One last thing:  if you do reach out to any of the folks featured here on Twitter, why not tell them you heard them on Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast? If you'd like to include our show's Twitter handle so we know that you've tweeted at them it's @succotashshow ... and please be sure to us the hashtag #PassTheSuccotash because hashtags are fun to use.

So, for Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, I'm signing off while once again gently imploring you to please pass the Succotash!

Succotash Cips Epi192: Reviewin' Like Crazy

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner, your host for the duration of this extra-stuffed edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for deciding to choose us for the next bit of listening entertainment in your life.

On the topics of life AND decisions I'd like to point out how the two are inexorably entwined. Life is full of decisions. Sometimes I have to make the agonizing choice of doing anything other than spending time with my newborn son. As a result, most of the work I get done is at night when he is sleeping. That's my decision to make and I happily make it.

I've also decided to make an entire episode comprised of clips that were found with the help of our friends at the Laughable app because it helped me find some fantastic shows to clip for you this episode. I've got clips from Gettin' Better with Ron Funches, Oprah's Master Class: The Podcast, CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley, s.

I've also got a double dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment. I will be reading another selection from our sponsor

And in this episode we introduce a special new segment from our very own Executive Producer Marc Hershon called "Let's Review", where he reads recent reviews he's written for "This Week in Comedy Podcasts" on This episode he's covering Girls Gotta Eat and Inside Conan.


Oprah's Master Class: The Podcast
In this episode, Emmy-, Grammy-, Oscar- and Tony-winning actress, TV host and stand-up comic Whoopi Goldberg talks with Oprah Winfrey candidly about her childhood in New York City, her most valuable life lessons and her defining screen roles. Whoopi explains how she landed her two most iconic roles: Celie in "The Color Purple" and Oda Mae Brown in "Ghost." She shares how she learned to accept success and open up doors of opportunity in her life. Whoopi also describes the moment she made peace with her mother's death. In our clip, Whoopi discusses her mother's approach to parenting.

Gettin' Better with Ron Funches
After listening to Hannah Gadsby's episode of Monsters of Talk (a now-defunct soundcast hosted by Margaret Cho and Jim Short), I really wanted to find a soundcast that featured some more conversation with Margaret Cho. Thanks to the Laughable App I found Gettin' Better, hosted by Ron Funches. In our featured clip Laugh-In is discussed as well as  Margaret's early comic role models as well as her current favorite comedy personalities.

The New Yorker Radio Hour 
David Remnick is joined by The New Yorker's award-winning writers, editors and artists to present a weekly mix of profiles, storytelling, and insightful conversations about the issues that matter — plus an occasional blast of comic genius from the magazine's legendary Shouts and Murmurs page. Our clip is from the episode that dropped on November 23rd last year (2018), entitled "Jim Carrey Doesn't Exist (According to Jim Carrey)".

The Mike Lupica Podcast 
Mike Lupica, one of the most prominent columnists in America, brings his experience and insider's knowledge, coupled with a provocative presentation that takes an uncompromising look at the tumultuous worlds of professional sports, and politics to this weekly podcast. Every week join Mike and a special guest as they tackle the topics of today! The clip we're featuring is from Mike's chat with Larry David back in 2017.

CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley 
CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley is the top-rated Sunday morning news program in all the key demos, and features stories on the arts, music, nature, entertainment, sports, history, science, Americana and highlights unique human accomplishments and achievements. From May of last year, Lee Cowan hosts this part of the soundcast. I was specifically looking to clip the segment with two of my all-time favorite funny people, Steve Martin and Martin Short…so I did.

Congratulations with Chris D'Elia 
Comedian and actor Chris D'Elia sits down every week to talk about what's on his mind. THe clip we're featuring comes from Epi116, "Open Up the Limit", where Chris responds to the local Albuquerque news covering his reaction from the week previous.

And that's the lineup for this episode. There only remains for me to thank you for making us your destination listening for however long this episode turns out to be. I can't emphasise more the gratitude I feel every time you decide to make the decision to listen.

If you could do this show a solid and leave us a review on iTunes it would really help us out. It's another type of word-of-mouth that is apparently very effective in helping us grow our audience and eventually perhaps landing us a real sponsor.

When you tell others about us, you show us love in that particular fashion that is what we mean when we gently implore you to Please... Pass The Succotash?

Succotash Clips Epi191: Baby Daddin' It Up

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner, your host and extremely anxious new father for the duration of this episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I'm writing this late at night and probably recording it during the daytime depending on whether or not I'm stage whispering or speaking at a more comfortable easy volume.  Thank you for listening.

In addition to clips I've got other special content for you. I've received submissions, ladies and otherwise, and I couldn't be happier about that…but you may not be able to tell through my stage whisper or perhaps I'll be at a comfortable volume and that joke won't land the right way. (Maybe I won't read this line and it will still be on the blog at as an Easter egg…) Well, I HAVE to read it NOW...


Let me take you on a journey through our menu of items tonight: We've got a DOUBLE dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment. We've got another reading from our wonderful FAKE SPONSOR which is a one hundred percent REAL WEBSITE that I'm sure will be linked somewhere here because it's awesome! It's a brilliant and eloquent achievement of what poetry created by our producer Joe Paulino, and is supposed to do for people who read it…and write it…when times are uncertain…or more certain…or less certain… It's supposed to put that in perspective. And, occasionally, it's supposed to remind us that two plus two is indeed four even if some folks want you to not only believe but state openly that it is five.

That's what I suppose... but I am no expert. 

I'm going to list the clips purely for presentation order here and then I'll explain a couple things after that, presumably. I've got clips from: Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited, The Rad Dudecast, The Slashfilmcast, Not A Huge Fan, and Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson.

Okay so, I've been using the Laughable app a lot lately because I really don't have as much time to hunt for sounds around the internet as I used to and it makes it easier for me to find the specific content that I look for…which, in this case, is comedy soundcasts. It has Featured Comedians of The Day and, if I search for a specific comedian it will show me a list of podcasts that that comedian is associated with in some fashion. i.e. Host? Guest? ...Producer? Spokesmodel? ... anyway, it's a useful tool. Three of the soundcasts you will hear clips from tonight were found with the help of the Laughable app.

Two of our clip segments feature those submissions I mentioned before and am very grateful for. Let me say a "Thank You" up here at the top of the show to Darren Staley and Dylan Brody of Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited and Charles Disney of Not A Huge Fan for their submitted contributions. I will explain more as we go…

Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson
Our clip, from March 5th of this year, features outrageous comedian and actor Joey Diaz (The Longest Yard and The Degenerates on Netflix) stops by Tyson Ranch for this hilarious episode of Hotboxin' with Iron Mike and Big Eb. (Be sure to check out Joey Diaz' podcast The Church of What's Happening Now!)

The /Filmcast (AKA The Slashfilmcast)
The Slashfilmcast is the official podcast of Hardcore geeks/bloggers/journalists David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Jeff Cannata debate, pontificate, and delve into the latest films, film news, television shows, and entertainment-related items from the past week. Our clip is from Epi 511, The Matrix 20th Anniversary Retrospective, with guest David Sims, film critic from The Atlantic. (GUEST: David Sims from The Atlantic)

The Rad Dudecast
Our next clips is from Epi 220, "It's Racially Enhanced," of The Rad Dudecast, featuring New York standup comedians and best friends Anthony Devito, Brendan Eyre, and Greg Stone. Greg got a new character from Scotland, the boys break down how to podcast, and Brendan talks about his album recording.

Not A Huge Fan
I'm not sure exactly which episode of Not A Huge Fan our next clip is from, as it was submitted directly to us from Charles Disney, a standup comedian and the host of the show.

Here's the note he sent along with the clips: "Hello — Our podcast Not A Huge Fan is not categorized under Comedy, but I'm a standup comic and we have a number of comedian guests so sometimes it is funny. Attached is a clip from a popular episode from the end of last year. Thank you for supporting other podcasts! Sincerely, Charles"

And thank YOU, Charles, for supporting this soundcast with your contribution. If you are a comedy soundcaster and would like to submit a clip to Succotash, we make it SO easy! Just get your 3-5 minute MP3 or WAV clip ready then upload it at!

Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited

Recently, myself and former-host-now-executive-producer Marc Hershon were guests on Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited, a "podcast about a podcast" as it calls itself.
It's hosted by longtime podcast personalities Darren Staley and comedian Dylan Brody whose names would be familiar to longtime listeners to Succotash (as well as anyone who just heard me mention them in the introduction that I wrote after having written everything before this sentence up to the word "Recently"…)

This is going to be kind of a "three-fer", with two clips submitted by Darren (aka @Crobama on Twitter) via our Hightail upload link. The first features part of a visit with comedian Craig Shoemaker, while the second has Darren chatting it up with Kelly Carlin. (Both of those worthies have been guests on Succotash, BTW — Shoe way back in Epi29 and Kelly way WAY in Epi9!) The third clip features me and Marc from a very recent episode of DBNCR.


And there it went! One more episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, in the archive at . Where you can hear past episodes of the show featuring original-host-now-executive-producer Marc Hershon planting and tending to the crops that would grow to yirld this current and also aformentioned soundcast.

For their contributions I'd like to again thank Darren Staley and Dylan Brody of Dylan Brody's Neighbor's Couch Revisited (or DBNCR as I will think of it from here on out.) And Charles Disney of Not A Huge Fan for taking time out of their day to send me content to help a fellow soundcaster out. It's a pretty big deal and I appreciate it.

It's late and I must try to capture sleep when I can. I apologize if some of these recent episodes have been more than two weeks apart as was my original goal. My current goal is to have episodes for you that post two weeks apart when it works out that way... at any rate, I'll shoot for more often than not.

I do enjoy making this program and I appreciate your kindness, patience and support. Thank you again for listening and, if I could, might I intrude upon your kindness the teensiest bit more and ask you to Please, Pass The Succotash?

Succotash Clips Epi190: Spring Clippin' with Tyson

Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Thank you for making us your destination listening for this next interval in your existence. With all the available choices you have to choose from as far as doundcasts go - or "podcasts" as many people still refer to them - you chose us, and it is an honor.

We've got an episode stuffed with content including clips from:  My Best Break-Up, Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, Broadway Baby, Mega, A Funny Feeling, and Fear Initiative.

We've also got a rare triple Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst and selected reading from

So much to listen to, so little…uh…well, really there's as much time as there is, isn't there? So let's crack on!


My Best Break-Up 
Sometimes, the best beginnings start with an ending. Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine bring you My Best Break-Up, hosted by the charming Maeve Higgins and featuring a different break-up story each week. Our clips features Hannah Gadsby, from a recent episode where she explains her deep unease with success, coupled with the invisibility she often felt as a queer, autistic woman. She's made a conscious decision to view the world in a new way - without a filter of shame.

Broadway Baby
Join host Kimberly Schmidt and her husband Jay as they try to transform their friend Alex Fossella from casual theater goer to full-out fan boy. The clip we're featuring is from the show's pilot, where Kimberly and Jay explain Alex's first homework assignment: The cast album from Hair.

This soundcast is an improvised satire from the staff of a fictional mega church. Starring
show creators Holly Laurent and Greg Hess as hosts Hallie and Gray, the clip we have is this past January and guest stars Edgar Blackmon (Alone Together, Popstar) as Edward Blackthorn who's talking sports, Game of Thrones, and falling in love.

Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast
Every episode of GGACP, host, comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried, along with co-host and fellow pop culture fanatic Frank Santopadre, welcomes an astounding guest from the business of show. Our clip from a recent episode features guest Joel Grey, talking about being Joel Grey!

A Funny Feeling
Hosted by comedians and paranormal enthusiasts Betsy Sodaro and Marcy Jarreau, A Funny Feeling, invites the hosts' comedian friends and celebrity guests to tell their true paranormal experiences and hear spooky stories submitted by listeners. A clip from Epi69, entitled NorCal Mysteries, features guest storyteller Jessica Jardine, discussing her Northern California upbringing with stories of serial killers and the Winchester Mystery House.

Fear Initiative
A weekly horror role-playing game podcast, Fear Initiative features Game Master David Ian McKendry as he takes players Morgan Peter Brown, Cara Mandel, Jeff Seidman, Megan Duffy, Rob Schrab, Josh Forbes and Clarke Wolfe on a weekly horror inspired RPG adventure. Our clip is from the very first episode from August of last year, when the FI crew comes together seemingly by accident, meeting late one night at a tavern.

Cracked on and gone: one more episode of Succotash. Thank you so much for listening to us. I hope you have been entertained...and maybe you've got another soundcast or two to seek out and listen to more episodes of that you hadn't previously been aware of…so then I can say that at the very least you've been informed in some way... specifically that there's a whole world of soundcasts out there in a world (that still mostly calls them podcasts as of this point in history.)

What our show, this "Comedy Soundcast Soundcast" is doing, is saying: "Try this, you might like it in larger amounts" and then letting you decide. We also interview some of those people when they are willing and able. We here at Succotash are empathetic with those who create content and understand the time it takes to make it all happen. So, if you do enjoy our content, why not share it with others so that they also might have a few more choices presented to them in easily consumed and, presumably, digestible portions? (To keep the food metaphor going...)
So again, thank you for listening and if you wouldn't mind taking a little time out to rate and review us on iTunes we'd be forever grateful because in addition to telling others about us, the iTunes rating is another form of "word of mouth" that might even land us a real sponsor someday... one can dream.

Good night, and until next time won't you please, pass the Succotash?

Succotash Clips Epi189: Daddyin' Around

Saluton estas mi: Tyson Saner, your returning host and, as you might have heard (unless this is your first listen to our program in which case, welcome), I am a new father. I must thank executive producer Marc Hershon for resuming hosting duties for the most recent 3 episodes while I was adjusting to having a newborn. I'm still adjusting but I'm not complaining because I'm pretty sure that's what parenting is...constant adjustments.

It's been great so far. I have no jokes to make. It's totally worth it. 

So what I've got for you this episode is a collection of clips I made before I went on leave in early January. All clips from this episode are from December 2018 or before so take a trip with me back in time, won't you…?

I've got clips from TigerBelly, The Ramble, The Smartest Man in the World, Comedy Bang Bang, The Mike O'Meara Show and Open Tabs.

I've also got a Double Dose of raging moderate Will Durst's "Burst O' Durst" segment... and keeping with the time travel theme BOTH Bursts are from February of 2019... first timers to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, should note that there were NO Bursts from January 2019 and this episode will have released about halfway thru March... hopefully actually on the IDES... again we shall see... or will have by the time you hear this... wheee!

And to prove I didn't record this very long before release I've selected two very recent entries from our sponsor from early March for those of you playing along at home, or wherever your head happens to be when my voice hits your ears...

Let's get started!

Bobby Lee and Khalyla
A no-holds-barred arena for half truths, social no-nos, and animal behavior-featuring comedian Bobby Lee and his best friend Khalyla. Every Wednesday. Clip is from Episode 172: Christina Pazsitzky & The HOV Gooch. In this clip, the group discusses the cycle of popularity that comedians of various race and gender enjoy and/or miss out on depending on the part of the cycle they are experiencing.

The Smartest Man in the World 
Greg Proops 
Comedian Greg Proops is smarter than you. I understand that former host and current executive producer of Succotash Marc Hershon clipped "SMITW as recently as Epi186: "Subbin' For Tyson", which is a great episode BTW as are all of Mr. Hershon's episodes... they are my template after all... the thing is, I don't really share what my clip choices are going to be with Mr. Hershon so... I already had a clip ready to go... I feel like maybe more information should be shared from my side of the table sometimes... we'll see.  in the meantime, I wanted to feature  this clip from Pennies, released Dec 20, 2018, because this clip is of Greg's farewell to Penny Marshall who passed away on December 17th, 2018, and features his wife: Artist, photographer, activist, and podcast host Jennifer Canaga.

Bertcast's Podcast

Bert Kreischer
Comic and man-of-the-world Bert Kreischer shares his wisdom and life with you. From Epi5 "Open Tabs", in our clip Bert speaks of Michael Rapaport, the actor and filmmaker who directed the 2011 documetary "Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest". Bert also speaks about his experience of the musical group "A Tribe Called Quest...".

The Mike O'Meara Show

Well, there's another episode sorted and served up. I hope it was to your liking. Remember, it's a tasting plate of just a small portion of the type of comedy content or alleged comedy content you could find if you happened to be looking for an alternative to terrestrial radio.
