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 - MalaniKai
In today's episode we meet up with MalaniKai, former basketball star and current talk host on WSB. She discovered a talent for basketball at the age of 12. By the time she graduated high school, she was courted by colleges around the country. She knew she wanted to be a broadcaster since she was two years old. After graduation, MalaniKai made her way from one radio assignment after another, eventually moving to Atlanta. She eventually became one of the principle voices on the show, "Word on the Street."
TWR Listeners Lounge - Shane Kimbrough
In this episode we welcome NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough to our Listeners Lounge. We open our discussion discussing Shane's earliest recollections about space flight. Though he didn't think he would get into NASA, a path opened for him and he applied. Since that time, he has flown multiple Space Shuttle missions. He also flew on a Russian Soyuz and spent months on the International Space Station. Shane Kimbrough is now in preparation to be the Commander of a SpaceX launch sometime next year.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Kyl Cobb
In this episode we get to spend time with Kyl Cobb, someone who is much more than a ghost hunter. Kyl has an extensive background in research, language, history and exploration. He is very much a modern day Indiana Jones. Whether exploring the remains of Tanis in Egypt or getting lost in the Amazon jungle, his exploits border on the extraordinary. Now throw in his passion for ghost hunting and assisting in exorcisms and you are only just scratching the surface of who Kyl Cobb is.
6th Annual Halloween Spooktacular
Every Halloween, we get to play on the radio, from 9PM until midnight. We love chatting about how it has evolved over our lives. We discuss our earliest memories, worst candy to get, movies we re-watch and the scenes that still creep us out today. We also chat about "haunted" places we'd love to visit and what we would love to dress-up as if money were no object. In the midst of all the fun, the three of us had a chance to interview Kyl Cobb, an actual ghost hunter who has also participated in exorcisms.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Steve O'Donnell
In this episode we are joined by long-time comedy writer, Steve O'Donnell whose credits include Late Night with David Letterman, The Chris Rock Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Norm Macdonald Live and more. Steve O'Donnell's latest work was with Norm Macdonald on his podcast before the pandemic and now he's wondering if he might be semi-retired. It was an amazing two hours spent with a person with four television Emmy Awards and who has been nominated 17 more times thus far in his career.
TWR Listeners Lounge - Ryan Waters
In this episode we are joined by Ryan Waters, an international, worldwide mountain climber, pole skier and owner of Mountain Professionals. We open with how he first got into climbing and how it led him to abandon his career in geology to become a full-time guide and climber. Ryan has climbed all of the Seven Summits, which includes Everest, multiple times. He also skied to both the North and South Poles. He filmed a documentary called, "Melting: The Last Race to the Pole."
Customer ReviewsSee All
This is a fantastic show. Alan and Walt are easy to listen too and keep me in stitches. I've learned a plethora about Gene Wilder and his films while being completely entertained. Their guests add variety and tears of laughter. The Listeners' Lounge features interesting guests and feels like I'm relaxing and chatting with friends.
Perfect for winding down
Need a break from stress? Just want to relax & maybe add a little silly humor after a long day? This is a good podcast for you. Alan & Walt discuss entertainment (movies, TV, etc), with a humorous slant. They frequently feature relevant guests who not only add to the topic in question, but add to the humor as well. Take a break from the crazy, all-too-serious world in which we live. Maybe even have some beer or wine & let these guys provide some goofiness to remind you that it’s okay to take a break from the real world every so often.
I am currently rewatching Ghostbusters because of the “seasonal” content that Alan and Walt are discussing now. I haven’t seen that movie in years and I can’t tell you the pure pleasure of just watching a movie for fun and then hearing the inside takes and things I might have missed from the guys. I also loved when they brought in Amy Murray and Susan Delmonico for the “Wilder Wives” discussion of The Princess Bride. These are 2 smart ladies and 2 smart guys to bring them aboard. Definitely do it again. Fingers crossed for “A Christmas Story” episode or 2?!? Well done guys. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
