A podcast where we typically discuss and celebrate the films of Gene Wilder, one minute at a time. Season one was dedicated to Young Frankenstein. Season two we looked at Blazing Saddles. With Season three, we moved in a new direction, taking on more of a talk-show format with guests.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Tyson Clabo
Hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray get a chance to talk with long-time Atlanta Falcon, Tyso Claybo, about his career and retirement from the NFL. The conversation starts with Tyson Clabo's college years. When things were not falling into place, he began to question his abilities. While recovering from an injury, the Atlanta Falcons said they wanted to see him again. Atlanta brought him on and he played from 2005-2013. The interview wraps with a discussion of how Tyson and his wife adopted their children.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Mike White
Alan and Walt sit down with former Alabama football player, Navy Seal, Actor, body guard and businessman, Mike White. The conversation opens with a discussion of how Mike was recruited to play for Alabama. A chance look at a magazine is what sent him to the US Navy, where he became a Navy Seal. After serving, Mike started to get into acting. After four years, he had the chance to perform security for Bill and Melinda Gates and Bruce Springsteen. We end the interview segment with where Mike White is today.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Autumn Fischer
Hosts Alan and Walt are joined by voice-acting talent and radio personality, Autumn Fischer. We open learning Autumn fell into the radio business somewhat by accident. Catching the ear and mind of radio host Eric von Haessler got her on when he was with The Regular Guys show. After that show fell apart, Eric began to reinvent himself. He invited trusted talents to join him for a daily podcast show from his home. Years of plugging away led to a return gig on WSB radio in Atlanta and a number one show!
TWR Listeners Lounge - Veronica Harrell
Hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray interview radio personality, Veronica Harrell. Veronica actually started her college career with a desire to be a movie director. As fate would have it, she got a job in radio at a conservative talk station in Jackson, Michigan. That role led to another in Detroit. Before she knew it, her husband was transferred to Atlanta and she found another radio job, which led to a full-time traffic reporter in Atlanta. She also likes positing messages of positivity on social media.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Bryon Lockhart
Hosts Alan and Walt welcome Bryon Lockhart, a former Marine and one of the hosts of The Marine Corps Movie Minute. Alan and Bryon recounted boot camp stories. Bryon also talked about growing up in Rochester, NY, home of the Garbage Plate. The discussion moved to podcasting. Bryon and his partner decided to look at films based around the Marine Corps. Their first season looked at the Clint Eastwood film, "Heartbreak Ridge." They even had one of the actors, Peter Koch, join them on a handful of episodes.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Welcome to Season Four
Welcome to season four! We open the episode with Alan and Walt recapping their holidays and activities since their hiatus. After nearly 30 minutes of nonsense. the hosts decide to weigh-in on their plans for season four. The Listeners Lounge will continue as a secondary cast along with a show about a Gene Wilder film. They do not discuss their selection, but they do drop a few hints. If you have missed Alan and Walt, even though they have been a break from this show, they have been very busy elsewhere.

Strap in for a wild ride
Alan and Walt are superb hosts, who are not only passionate and knowledgeable about their subject matter, but also coney it with a sense of humour that has me laughing along with them in every episode.
Season 1 about Young Frankenstein has opened my mind to a hell of a lot of stuff about the movie that I was never aware of...and this is a movie I've watched MANY times over the years too.
I await with great anticipation the beginning of Season 2 all about Blazing Saddles.
Funny, informative, entertaining...The Wilder Ride is a slice of audio goodness that everyone should get into their ears ASAP.
