Today's guest in our Listeners Lounge is, Dean Sharp, aka Dean of the Dead, who discovered a love of creating new and invetive hot sauces. Before Dean sits down with hosts Alan and Walt, Walt recounted a story of a friend who went to Jamaica. Someone had broken into their room and ransacked the place, but nothing was missing. The camera had all the pictures taken on the roll. The couple didn't really learn the whole story until the film was developed weeks later.

This is the "pilot" episode of our new format, which we are calling The Wilder Ride Listeners Lounge. We decided to try it without a guest and if all goes well, we look to add someone new to the line-up each week. The goal is to keep it to as close to an hour each episode. Today we spent a few minutes chatting about our lives since the last recording. We then jumped into some odd or funny news stories before launching into movies and shows we've watched. We wrap with a few podcast shout outs.
