Succotash Clips Epi179: Equinoxin' in Autumnal Style

Saluton, estas mi: Tyson Saner. Welcome to this early October edition of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. Yellow, brown and orange are the colors associated with this time of year, colors also reflected in the corn, bacon and carrots that are often core components of the dish for which this program is named.

Without succotash, this show might have been called something very different...perhaps Hodgepodge,  Mrs. Murphy's Chowder, Everything Stew...

I'm sorry, I've just been informed that the core components for a  succotash consist of sweet corn, (ok, got THAT one correct) with lima beans...which are neither brown nor orange. I'm also being informed that tomatoes, green or sweet red peppers, and okra might be other ingredients in a succotash...

Carrots aren't listed in the Wikipedia entry for succotash - although there is a photograph that shows a succotash with carrots...and one with some kidney beans but no detectable bacon...  Oh, but apparently, according to Wikipedia, "in some parts of the American South, ANY mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans, and topped with lard or butter is called succotash. I can see where the bacon would stand in for one's non vegan additional fat/flavor component...


AT ANY RATE…


Without succotash the show would just be called "The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast"... Except no, that's not entirely accurate either. Without the creation of this soundcast by former-host-now-Executive-Producer Marc Hershon in collaboration with Joe Paulino, Bill Heywatt, and Scott Carvey, there wouldn't be a Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and I wouldn't be talking to you about it right now. There might not even be the term "soundcast" which was coined by former-host-now-Executive-Producer Marc Hershon. It's hard to imagine. It's nearly as hard to imagine as it is - for me at least - to imagine a succotash without bacon. Ahh, bacon...

ANYWAY…

This epi of Succotash has a selection of fresh ingredients,  snippets of audio goodness from Adult Sh1t, Jeremiah Wonders, Blank Check with Griffin & David, Jordan, Jesse GO!!, You're Making It Worse, and WOMP it UP

In addition to clips we've got a Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst...a seasonal selection of advertisements from Henderson's Pants AND and selected reading from TrumPoetry.com

By the way, if you Google "succotash recipe" — first of all, congratulations on being able to spell both those words, "recipe" is the one that always gives me trouble — and second of all:  many of them seem to include bacon. So that might explain my idea of what succotash is supposed to contain...through a sort of digital morphic resonance I suppose.

Before we get to the clippage, leading the charge tonight is "The Bobsled Run", this episode's B o' D from political comedian and social commentator Will Durst.


CLIPS

You're Making It Worse 
Although ​performing ​stand-up comedy ​was what initially united ​Eliot, Brent, and H. Alan over 10 years ago​, it’s their ​openness ​(​and ​sense of humor) about feeling ​totally ​lost ​and disconnected from the gay community that’s truly bonded them. ​On YMIW, ​the hosts get down and dirty, exploring the ​good, bad, and ugly ​tropes of contemporary gay life, often the stuff that no one -- especially ​​​straight people -- discuss for fear of being labeled homophobic. (Don’t worry. ​They’ll do that for you.) Our clip is from a recent epi from August 2, 2018 with guest renaissance woman Mamrie Hart (and her beloved lap dog Beanz) talking BDE: Big Dick Energy.


Blank Check with Griffin & David 

Not just another bad movie podcast, Blank Check reviews directors' complete filmographies episode to episode. Specifically, the auteurs whose early successes afforded them the rare ‘blank check’ from Hollywood to produce passion projects. Each new miniseries, hosts Griffin Newman and David Sims delve into the works of film’s most outsized personalities in painstakingly hilarious detail. We've clipped the epi entitled "Running Scared with Paul Scheer" from March 11th of this year. One of the hosts of the How Did This Get Made? soundcast, Paul picked a favorite film from his youth: 1986's underrated buddy cop movie Running Scared.

Adult Sh1t
Buzzfeed's Kelsey Darragh and Kate Peterman give their unfiltered take on life as they know it. From diva cup maintenance to maybe not going home with that guy even though he's got the whole Eminem 8 mile vibe ("wait, are you into that s**t??"). They hope you can, if not learn from their mistakes, at least laugh at them. The podcast where they f*ck up so you don't have to. The clip featured on our show is from the
"Hannah Hart Talks Mental Health" episode from February earlier this year and features a bit of talk about different types of meditation with America's Sweethart, Hannah Hart, to talk about (*drumroll*) mental health!

Jeremiah wonders...
Jeremiah wonders... is a weekly podcast where Jeremiah Watkins interviews guests with some of his favorite original characters and impressions. You never know who's going to call in! Brody Stevens is featured in the clip we have, having appeared in their episode 34 just a couple of months ago in August, and features some "Between the Bits" discussion following an improvisational phone call with "Larry Bird".


Jordan, Jesse GO! 
What is the dumbest show you can imagine? This award-winning show may be dumber. It has no content. No format. Yet it's going on ten years of delighting hundreds of thousands of people. It's been an iTunes editors choice, and Rolling Stone picked it as one of the world's best comedy podcasts. It's light in the dark, comfort in the cold and a penguin in the pants (long story). Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR's Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central's @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a raucous, vulgar and warm-hearted romp that will probably leave you a better person. And will certainly make you dumber. Our clip is taken from their Epi548, "Deez Nuts Woof Woof" with guest Ben Blacker. From September 11, 2018, it features a selection from the "birthday party talent show" section of this soundcast's episode. (A little Succotash trivia: Ben was a guest on this soundcast WAY back in 2012, in our Epi37 with OG host Marc Hershon.)

WOMP It Up! 
Slather cream cheese all over your Digiorno and get ready to get WOMPED cause everybody's favorite intern, Marissa Wompler (Jessica St. Clair) is throwing on the cans for her brand new school project podcast Womp It Up!. Her teacher/mentor/co-host/former sniper, Charlotte Listler (Lennon Parham), will be there to DJ and divvy out love advice. Plus other special guest stars. Get a front-row seat to the madness of the Marina Del Rey lifestyle! We're snippin' a clip from their "Live from Largo w/ Jason Mantzoukas, Matt Walsh, Brian Huskey, Lauren Lapkus" show, from May 15th, 2018.


OVER AND OUT


Thus concludes this early autumn edition of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. In the words of Johnny Mercer, "A winding country lane all russet brown" if you will of selected sounds from folks all over the Comedy scene taking time out from appearing onstage (except, in this case that clip of "WOMP it UP!" which was very much onstage...literally some might say if they were to be using the word "literally" in the correct fashion...) taking time out from appearing onstage or writing or making video content for YouTube or perhaps their own website to, presumably sit with some other people, have a conversation, record it and post it on the internet.

If you liked any of what you heard and it leads you to seek out any of the Soundcasts featured on this program so that you can spend more of your time listening to people have these conversations then my job has been done correctly. I may never know.

I'll talk to you in a couple weeks, until then please visit visit www.tysonsaner.com to see links to some other projects I'm involved with and please frequently visit our homesite www.succotashshow.com for the blog posts for each episode which includes links to all the shows we feature, plus the archive of every episode we've done. Be decent to each other and, whether or not you like bacon, could I possibly impose on your kindness the eenciest teenciest bit more and ask you to please Pass The Succotash?

Succotash Clips Epi178: Endin' September with Snippets

Saluton, estas mi Saluton, estas mi Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast...the soundcast that features clips from other soundcasts that have something to do with comedy. I swear to you.

That is to say that all of the soundcasts featured in nearly every episode of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast will be comedy-related in some way. I cannot stress that enough.  Or maybe I can and/or have. It's hard to tell without feedback.

Did I mention there are clips?

We've got clips from Ear Biscuits, Science Fiction Rating System, Am I An Asshole?, Comedy Pop-Up Podcast, The Kevin and Bean Show from KROQ, and Hello From The Magic Tavern!


We've also got a double Burst o' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst, another reading from TrumPoetry.com, and there may or may not be time for a Henderson's Pants ad...

Let's find out, shall we?

THE CLIPS

Science Fiction Rating System 
Join Sam, Alex & Chris as they rank every science fiction film EVER. Three films an episode are discussed and added to the ranking, until they run out of films. (See the current list at sciencefictionratingsystem.com!) From July of this year, they are into their second year running celebrating Bug Week, this time with the help of some GIANT ANTS.  In a wide ranging episode we dissect the film itself, and also get into projection techniques, an in depth ant quiz, the wonder of a Victorian man in Hollywood and much, much more!

Ear Biscuits
Join Rhett and Link, hosts of the popular daily YouTube show Good Mythical Morning and authors of the New York Times bestseller "Book of Mythicality" in a candid weekly conversation for your Internetainment. In a clip from the spisode entitled "When Is Fun Too Dangerous?", Rhett and Link sit down to discuss when fun stops being worth the risk, dangerous hobbies they use to partake in, and the time Rhett almost went down with the "SS Merle" on this week's Ear Biscuits.

The Kevin & Bean Show on KROQ 
The soundcast of The Kevin & Bean Show is made up of bits and segments from The Kevin & Bean Show. In this episode, that includes not just guest Bert Kreischer but "What's Happening?", Afro Line, Bean Makes Us Guess, and Extreme Commuting. Are the remnants and roll-ends of terrestrial radio the stuff of soundcasts? Listen and decide for yourself.

Am I An Asshole?
Comedians @JackieViscusi & @RosieGu + a special guest dig deep w/their resident therapist to analyze their asshole tendencies. In the episode from back in the beginning of this year sub-titled "For Being A Straight White Male?" (You have to do the math yourself there, and connected the title of the show to the sub-title to get the full message, see?), Jackie, Rosie, and guest comedian Jono Zalay touch on Women's Marches. Black Lives Matter. Gay rights. Are straight white dudes just hanging out and waving their privileged dicks around or do they actually want to help? Their special guest & comedian Jono, and their therapist, Jen, try to work it all out.


Hello From The Magic Tavern 

Quick background: Arnie Niekamp fell through a dimensional portal behind a Burger King into the fantastical land of Foon. He's still getting a slight WiFi signal, so he uploads a weekly podcast from the tavern the Vermilion Minotaur where he interviews wizards, monsters and adventurers. It's a major discovery! In our clip from Helo from The Magic Tavern (consistently in the Top 100 comedy soundcasts on iTunes), from way back in 2015, Arnie and his pals Chunt and Usidore meet a new guest: A common, dirty traveler named Tom. (Arnie hopes to hear what life outside of Hogface is like from someone who has traveled across Foon.)

Comedy Pop-Up Podcast 
Live from the CPU Studios in beautiful Los Angeles, this is the official soundcast of Comedy Pop-Up, normally hosted by comedian Ron G. Join them as they interview some of the top comics in the business and create another outlet for some of the best in the industry. Our clip is from Epi42 from just earlier THIS month, guest-hosted by Paul Antonio and featuring guests Brent Sullivan and Vinny Fasline.

And there you have it. September is nearly over and Halloween is just around the corner. In fact if you would like a headstart on Halloween why not pick up one or more editions of "Combat Radio Halloween The Album" available from cdbaby? You can pick them up by going to store.cdbaby.com , typing "Combat Radio" into the search field and clicking on any of the album icons adorned with very distinct shades of black with yellow lettering.

If the image of the headless horseman holding aloft a flaming pumpkin to presumably hurl at some poor soul isn't enough of a tip-off that you're in the right place, the white skull peering from behind the red shield with the black cross that is Combat Radio's logo should be a dead giveaway...

If you'd like specifically to buy this year's edition...this year being 2018...you can go to https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/combatradio8. The funds generated by album sales go to benefit social services, homeless children and other causes that have been adopted by the central figure of Combat Radio and an old pal of Succotash, Ethan Dettenmaier. I would also recommend checking out a track called "The Haunted Tour" from the 3rd annual "Combat Radio Halloween The Album" because it's something yours truly put together with the assistance of my co-host from Anti Social Show, Hunter Block, and we're frankly pleased with the way it turned out.

So until next time, I bid you a fond farewell and thank you for spending some of your time with us here at Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I hope it was entertaining and informative, and I hope that if you did enjoy yourself here that you might find the time to tell others about this program so that it might assist them in their own personal "I'd like to listen to a comedy soundcast but I'm not sure where to start" journey.


That, after all, is the simplest way you could grant our most humble of requests that can be summed up in the four words: "Please, Pass The Succotash".

Succotash Clips Epi177: Fallin' For Clips

Saluton, estas mi, Tyson Saner welcoming you to Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. The podcast that dares to call itself a soundcast that features clips from other soundcasts...allegedly of the comedic variety...sometimes merely comedy-adjacent.

That is to say, if you have a soundcast and it can be considered a comedy related soundcast I may have listened to it, I may have already clipped it...former-host-now-executive producer Marc Hershon may have clipped it...or I have yet to hear it.

And when I do hear it, I will probably clip it and feature it here on Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast" because that's what this soundcast is all about.

You want clips?  We've got clips. This epi features content from: Awards Chatter, Broad Topix, Just Joshin', Entry Level with Brooks Wheelan, About Last Night and Come To Papa.


But wait - there's more! In addition to clips, we've got our Burst O' Durst segment with political wag and social gadfly Will Durst which is opening our show this time around and another reading from our still-pretty-new sponsor TrumPoetry.com...

DAS CLIPS

Awards Chatter 
Moderated by The Hollywood Reporter's Scott Feinberg, Awards Chatter features in-depth interviews with the most interesting and accomplished people in show business. His guest back on May 7th of this year, which this epi dropped was Samantha Bee, the host of TBS' Full Frontal. Our clip features her talking about the chronology of former host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show Jon Stewart's departure, and the beginning of her own show.

Entry Level with Brooks Wheelan 
This is a podcast about all those jobs we've had that sucked. Each episode host Brooks Whelan interviews a guest to find out what garbage they had to put up before they got to the position they're in now. John Roy, winner of Star Search in 2003, was Brooks' guest back in April of this year, talking about his run of bad managers.

About Last Night 
We've clipped About Last Night on Succotash before but it's always fun to hear what hosts and comedians Brad Williams and Adam Ray are up to — as it says on the iTunes description: "From sex, to sports, to booze, when a dwarf and a Jew come together the results are unpredictable but always entertaining." Their guest in July was the great Bill Burr, who covered a gamut of topics - being a parent, bullying, high school days, and more. Our clip shaves off a slice of that action for you…

Broad Topix
Hosts Kim Congdon and Alex Scarlato use their soundcast Broad Topix as a platform to cover everything from near-death experiences to naming their vaginas. We clip from an episode released just this month, where the hosts recount their adventure-filled trip to Vegas, baby!

Savage Henry Magazine Radio Network

After a mighty long slumber, hosts Chris Durant and Daniel Amaral welcome the rebirth of the Savage Henry Magazine Radio Program, a new special producer and ringleader, Michelle Meyers, as well as a the show debut of guest Just Joshiní. Host of Just Joshiní, Joshua Barnes is joined by studio hosts, Evan Vest and Matt Redbeard. Our clip features conversation about host Josh Barnes's recently discovered appreciation for Fleetwood Mac.

Come To Papa
A positive podcast from stand-up comedian/actor/writer/bread maker/friend to all Tom Papa. This clip is about a special promotion during a live epi of the show from July featuring guests Judy Gold, Robert Kelly, Colin Quinn, Keith Robinson, Dave Hill, Bonnie McFarlane, Olivia Vessel, and Rick Crom.


And just like that...the show is near over. I close another chapter of the audiobook that is Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It's time to sweep up the eyeballs...oh wait I used that one already...didn't I?  Ugh I...I can't remember...a wiki for the show would be so handy as a reference tool ...sadly the rules of Wikipedia wouldn't allow me to do it myself...as far as I know...I don't understand how Wikipedia works really...is there a Vox video?

I'll look it up after I get done here. Thank you so much for joining me whenever you are listening. If you like us here at Succotash and you'd like to help us out, it would be great if you could write a review on iTunes or anywhere they let you write reviews really...online that is...well, you know what?  I'm cool with print media...

Also there is Succomerch available at our Succotashery (https://www.cafepress.com/succotashshow) and I imagine that's another great way to show us love by showing off your love of us to others...sharing us with others...loving us together...It's a huge and wonderful favor you'd be doing us, being our mascot of sorts...sharing images of yourself on social media with our shirts on...being featured on our Social Media sites...that sort of modern reciprocal love that is just another fantastic way that you could ...if you were to be so inclined to make a fashion statement AND (Please) Pass the Succotash...

Succotash Clips Epi176: Harvestin' Primo Clippage

Saluton! It is I, your host Tyson Saner, and welcome to Succotash The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. This one is chock full o' content as folks used to say...

The "chock full" part...not necessarily the content...

ANYWAY -- there's plenty to hear on this episode besides me editing myself: Aside from clips — and yes, don't you worry, we've got those — we also have a double Burst o' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst: "Battle of the DC Network Stars" & "All the President's Con Men"


We've got another reading from our recently acquired sponsor TrumPoetry.com AND a spot from Henderson's Pants to round things out. It will be nice to hear from Henderson's Pants...as it is nice to hear from any sponsor that will have us. I'm glad they've decided to throw their pants back into the ring as it were and enjoy some healthy competition for your attention span and/or any other time-currency that is the the life blood of any soundcast...or, as some still call them: podcasts.

The clips I've selected for you on this edition of Succotash include : You Know What Dude!, Your New Favorite Movie, The Kimchi Chronicles, Opie Radio, Legion Of Skanks Podcast, and Kill Tony is the name of the last featured soundcast that isn't a call to action.


Please don't take that literally...

CLIPS

The Kimchi Chronicles
Friend of the show Samantha Pett is based in South Korea, from where Pett happily discusses differences in society, culture and personal hygiene. This clip, taken from Epi21 - An Extraordinary Guest - features the wonderful Baz Henderson, the host and producer of the awesome Extraordinary Stories Podcast. In this clip Samantha and her guest Baz discuss the controversy surrounding the use of "swear words". Enjoy!

You Know What Dude!
Hosted by Robert Kelly, the You Know What Dude! soundcast provides you a seat at that back-of-the-room table where comedians new and old try to one up and out wit each other. Taken from the "Wooden Spoon" episode, where host Kelly welcomes Rich Vos, Paul Virzi, and Gary Gulman, this clip has Kelly revealing his love of fireworks as well as the reason for this episode's title.

Opie Radio
The iTunes description of the show: Opie has been synonymous with irreverent and hilarious radio for decades. Opie has come a long way from his shock jock days and his talent as a curator of captivating conversation is undeniable. Opie Radio is a blend of current events, comedy, and talking to real, everyday people. In this episode, Opie and Vic Henley go on a road trip...sort of. This is the first in a series of "recorded while driving in a car" episodes and, in the clip we're featuring, Opie and Vic make an unexpected navigation adjustment!

Your New Favorite Movie
Two independent filmmakers pitch their outlandish movie ideas to AAA Ryan (Average American Audience) who will decide if their films will be a success or not. "Ever since Han Solo tanked at the box office, Disney has cancelled any future spin off Star Wars movies," goes their blurb for this episode. "Your New Favorite Movie is here to change their minds! Hear our team up movie with Jar Jar and FDR, but probably not the FDR you're thinking of!" This clip features the very beginning of the pitch and answers at least one question...

Legion of Skanks
According to the iTunes logline, "Legion of Skanks has been called "the most offensive podcast on Earth" and the hosts and creators wouldn't want it any other way! Stand up comedians and real-life best friends Big Jay Oakerson, Luis J. Gomez, and Dave Smith host their weekly "podcast party" from the Creek and Cave in Long Island City where they invite their loyal fans in studio to hang out and listen in as they discuss anything and everything in a hilarious and extremely uncensored way." The episode we clipped from also features guests Eric Bergstrom and Shane Gillis, and the clip starts out as a plug section that turns into an origin story.

Kill Tony
The weekly live show Kill Tony is recorded at the world famous Comedy Store with hosts Tony Hinchcliffe and Brian Redban. We clipped Epi263, featuring guests Sara Weinshenk, Ali Macofsky and surprise guest "Uncle Ron". (If anybody remixes Uncle Ron and sends me a link or a file of it not only will I listen to it but it is very likely to be featured in a future episode of Succotash…)

EPILOG

Whew!  ThIs is a sizable epi if I do say so myself. If you make it through the whole thing I'm grateful to you. Anytime you listen, anywhere you listen, any way you listen - I am grateful to you for it. I'm going to go listen to some more soundcasts for the next episode and I have some pretty good ideas of where to start...

So, rest easy those of you who may have been concerned. BTW, speaking of getting things underway, why not go to www.succotashshow.com, click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page and shop as you normally would. Amazon kicks us a portion of that and this ship keeps afloat for a few more months... or weeks... It's an ideal way to donate because after making sure to click that banner first and seeing your selected purchases thru to the end you have the added benefit of receiving stuff for donating! ...AND it's stuff you ALREADY want because YOU JUST BOUGHT IT... Isn't that nifty?

You know what else is nifty?  You — the listener. Thank you for being nifty and thank you again for listening. And while you're out there this pre-holiday season could I possibly intrude upon your good natures ever so slightly and gently remind you to please...pass the Succotash?

Succotash Chats Epi175: Kickin' It with Korey Epps

Saluton, Succotash the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast listeners!

It is in fact I, Tyson Saner, your humble host for the duration of this Chats edition of Succotash. My guest is podcaster (or soundcaster, rather…), singer, and actor Korey Epps.

Korey was the host of The Evil Teddy Bear Podcast for many years and over a hundred episodes. I was even a guest on his show in Epi67, entitled "Fights Like Tyson", back in 2013. (Click the link in this epi's blog entry on on our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite if you want to hear what I sounded like as a Boy Podcaster…)

The ETBP went defunct last year but recently Korey has come back on the soundcasting scene with the appropriately titled The Korey Epps Show. We'll be discussing that and other things so stay tuned, won't you? (Spoiler Alert: We experienced technical problems toward the end of our chat so had to cut our conversation a bit short more suddenly than intended…)

We've got our Burst o' Durst from political comedian and social commentator Will Durst in which In which our intrepid correspondent goes slightly mad and babbles on and on about the shady, depraved and transgressive administration.

I'd like to bring YOUR attention to a special event that Mr. Durst brought to MY attention. It's called "Comedy Celebration Day". They had their first one back in 1981 and this year - in 2018 for you time travelers - , it's being held on September 16th from Noon to 5pm. It features 40 comics, it's in San Fransisco in Golden Gate Park's newly named Robin Williams Meadow... and it's free to attend. They recently reached their gofundme goal but you can still see the promo for the event (and continue to donate!) at https://www.gofundme.com/comedy-day-2018

I've also got another selection of TrumPoetry from our almost-brand-new sponsor TrumPoetry.com...

Thank you for spending your time with us for the hour or so which this installment ate up. I appreciate it a great deal. If you like what you're hearing I'd like to invite you to tell people about us here at Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It doesn't cost you more than a moment or two of your time to leap over to our page in the Apple Podcasts section, search for Succotash Show, and give us a 5-star rating and a tasty little review. Sharing is, after all, caring...and it's the most direct way to honor our request that you please Pass The Succotash!

Succotash Clips Epi174: Clippin' The Summer Away

Saluton! Estas mi, your host...Tyson Saner. Welcome to Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I'm so glad you chose to join me for this clips episode featuring soundcasts that are chock full of current events...

Or at least they were current events when they were being commented on by people in the more-or-less recent past. One might recall some of the topics and/or events discussed ahead in the program...others may not.

I thank you for listening either way.

Apart from clips, we have a single Burst O' Durst from raging moderate Will Durst. AND we've got some premium advertising coming your way. Henderson's Pants will delight us with a particularly classy commercial later in the program. We also unveil a new sponsor: TrumPoetry.com, featuring the daily news…in rhyme!

As I mentioned before, I've got clips and helping me introduce them is my co-host for Anti Social Show and the guest for Epi 173 of this very program, Hunter Block! Since you can't hear him here, those clips are from soundcasts SModcast, Let's Get Shitty Show, This Past Weekend, Movie Sign With The Mads, Salty Language, and This Or That.

Let's get to the clippage, shall we?

CLIPS

This Past Weekend
Host Theo Von is joined by that "solid 8" Whitney Cummings, where they talk about Roseanne (the TV show and the woman), dating comics and "classing it up". She also plugs her book I'm Fine…And Other Lies which you can get at Amazon - and for your convenience, you can just click on the banner at the top of our http://SuccotashShow.com homesite. Not only will you be able to order her tome but you can contribute to your favoirte soundcast soundcast in the very same click.

SModcast
Kevin Smith and Scott Moser commiserate and celebrate with the cast of Comic Book Men (Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Michael Zapcic, and Ming Chen) as the seven seasons on AMC TV fades but their new Patreon-based soundcast begins!

Salty Language
Our longtime social media buddies behind the Salty Language soundcast, Bryan Stewart and Tony High, are finally back! Last heard on our show way, way back in Epi82, we clip from their "No Garbage Tiddies" episode from back in June, specifically the "Instagram TV" segment of the show.

Movie Signs with The Mads
Clipped from the very first episode of Movie Sign with The Mads. Hosts Frank Conniff, Trace Beaulieu, and Carolina Hidalgo fight back against the alien invasion of the senses that is Independence Day: Resurgence. (Spoiloer Alert: Our clip contains spoilers for the movie Independence Day: Resurgence!)

This Or That
From their iTunes description: "You've played Would You Rather before, but never like this. Welcome to the world of This or That, the podcast where no subject is off limits and no option is left unexplored. You can't help but play along as Chris, Joshua, and Danielle tackle each week's topics with humor, intelligence, and a touch of raunchiness." Our clip is from show 126 from June 25th, 2018 entitled "Knife Thrower's Assistant or Lion Tamer".

Let's Get Shitty Show
 Self-proclaimed "uninformed hosts" Eddie and Alyssa Jefferson guide listeners through discussions about new, culture, comedy, the arts, buttholes, and genitalia. Our clips comes from a recent episode entitled, "Butterdick". And that's just the title, so hang on.

BIG WRAP-UP

Well, that's about the size of it. This episode is posting at a pivotal point in my personal life so it has a greater potential for me to remember it if I ever were to have one of those "I wonder what I was doing when..." moments in my future.

I likely will have one of those moments because I'm extremely self-absorbed. "That's not likely to change unless I really want it" is a thing that I would say if I were a licensed therapist... but I'm not.

Anyway, I hope your listening experience was pleasurable. I like to think that if you were to enjoy it enough you might take a moment to subscribe to us on iTunes or perhaps give us a five-star rating and a review. That sort of thing lets the powers that be know that you would like the program to stay around... and if enough people do that sort of thing... I might find out about it... That would be most triumphant as the kids used to say when I was one of those... although I was never Bill OR Ted...

Back to the subscribing, the rating, the sharing us with others... that's how you show us love and when you do that, I say "I love you, too" and, also, thank you for doing that thing I gently urge you to do at the close of every episode and that is to Please, Pass The Succotash...

Succotash Chats Epi173: Bein' Social with Hunter Block

Saluton! Thank you for joining me on this Chats episode of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. My guest for this episode is someone I've wanted to have on since I began hosting duties…and that someone is none other than Hunter Block, my co-host on Anti Social Show, a soundcast that I've been recording with him for nearly two years now.

I always have a good time recording with Hunter when we record for Anti Social Show. If there's one bit of info I've absorbed from listening to so many different soundcasts over the years it's a particular similarity of nearly everyone who commits their voices to digital posterity in mp3 format…and that similarity is how at the beginning of what will become the life of a soundcast, so many of its creators and contributors have absolutely no idea how a show is going to evolve or how long they will continue to make and post episodes.

I'm not talking about radio personalities who archive their shows, I'm talking about people who just decide to add their voices to the ever-growing pool of audio personalities who you can choose to spend part of your day with.

In addition to my conversation with Mr. Block I've also got a DOUBLE dose of raging moderate Will Durst's Burst O' Durst segment, plus this 'sode is brought to you by our ever-present sponsor Henderson's Pants.

Oh! And we even have a soundcast clip featured in this episode…

Illusionoid
Before I get into my interview with Hunter I'm featuring a clip from Illusionoid, a soundcast out of Toronto, Canada, that recently launched its 10th season.  It should sound familiar to long-time Succotashians, as we have not only been featuring clips of the show for many years, but previous host and current Succotash executive producer Marc Hershon interviewed the cast — Paul Bates, Lee Smart, and Nug Nahrgang — back in January of 2013 in Epi48 when they were visiting San Francisco for the S.F. Improv Festival that year. The clip Marc provided for us is from the second episode of the new season, entitled "The Undersea Pawns."

Well, there you have it. Who knows what the future brings? Sasquatch, that's who. But they're moody and reclusive so it's difficult to gather their predictions with any degree of regularity.  Anyway, until next time I bid you a fond gxis poste and, if I could trouble you to do so I'd like to gently implore you to please…pass the Succotash.
