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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
