comment How do you punctuate a list of titles and names?
I appreciate the advice, but I'm not asking about the best way to formulate the sentence (it *is an awkward sentence, but that's because I just whipped it up to illustrate my question, I'm sure given a moment I can come up with a more natural example that still suffers from the same problem). So, I think I have my answer now; to use semi-colons as list separators.

Thanks! I was wondering that very same thing. I appreciate not having to use a bunch of parenthesis.

This is what I was after. I understand how to rephrase the question for clarity, but I wanted to know what the right punctuation would be if I had to use the formulation of the question as stated. Thanks all.

yeah, I think this is right. I also thought of acid burns after I posted the question, which is entirely correct looking usage, and obviously has no fire involved.
