Succotash Chats Epi150: Sesquicentennialin' with Jordan Brady
Hello, friend, it IS I, Marc Hershon, your host and adorable Lapso Apso for our sesquicentennial installment – that’s Epi150 to you and me – of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. It’s also the 6th anniversary of this show being on the web! This particular listening experience is a Succotash "Chatisode", and features third time returning special guest Jordan Brady! Jordan has just started galavanting around the good ol’ US of A to show off his newest documentary, I Am Battle Comic, the third chapter of his trilogy looking at the lives and careers, and the hopes and dreams, as well as the pain and suffering, of comedians. The first was I Am Comic which, you might recall from just a couple of episodes ago, focused on the efforts of our guest Ritch Shydner trying to re-ignite what had once been a pretty successful standup comedy career. The followup to that was I Am Road Comic, about the trials and tribulations of a comedian working the road today. That film featured another triple visit guest, Wayne Federman. You can likely guess the focus of his new film, I Am Battle Comic – it’s about stand-up comedians who muster up the courage to head into some of the gnarliest war zones that our men and women of the Armed Forces are stationed. The only reason to do so is to bring a few laughs into the lives of the servicemen and women in these god-forsaken hellholes, some of whom are stationed away from home for many months or even years at a time.

Marc Hershon does a great job talking in-depth about comedy podcasts, big and small, he is like "Entertainment Tonight" for comedy podcasts. His format allows for everything from a detailed review of shows and their cast, as well as to a cornucopia of clips and promos.
