The Wilder Ride

In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray sit down for a chat with the host of the Von Haessler Doctrine, Eric Von Haessler. Although the goal was to start at the beginning, the discussion took on a life of it's own.

It's impossible to know the fullest extent of social media and the internet, but it's hard to ignore the impact on society.

The Wilder Ride

In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray sit down with Atlanta radio veteran, author and podcaster, Pete Davis. Well before Pete got into writing and podcasting, he thought he was going to be an actor. He wanted to move to LA and be a star. That was until he saw a live radio show. From that point, he was focused on a career on the air waves. And, sometimes, being at the right place at the right time is all a person needs.

The Tell-Tale Heart show art The Tell-Tale Heart

The Wilder Ride

For many years, one of the traditions Alan brings to his radio show each Halloween, is a dramatic reading of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart. The story is very short and simple. It is only a few pages long. In it, an unnamed narrator is recounting his tale to some unknown audience. He opens asking why would anyone think he is mad? In the narrator's mind, because he can vividly remember the details of his activity and his crime, it should make him sane. He goes so far as to say his senses were all acute, especially his hearing.  As the tale unwinds, we learn about an old man with a...

More Episodes

In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray chat with body actor, Misty Rosas, who recently brought the character of Quiil to life on The Mandalorian. Misty first started her career as a gymnast, working to stay flexible and dynamic. She also spent time working as a dancer. As luck would have it, being a few inches shy of five feet tall, she learned she could play characters at Disneyland. She rapidly began to grow her craft as a character performance artist. One of her first block buster rolls was playing the ape in Congo. When the chance came to audtion for Kuiil, she jumped at it. That role has opened up new opportunities for Misty, including a chance to do more acting outside of the body costumes. While continuing her acting career, Misty is also an accomplished pop singer, working on her music between gigs. She is a talented performer on multiple levels and she has really only just begun to hit her stride.

After the interview, Walt was once again forced to review a film selected by the listeners in The Wilder Ride LIsteners Group on Facebook. After the painful review, Alan and Walt each shared a pair of crazy news stories from the past week. Then, Misty joined the guys as they jumped into their entertainment segment.

Walt highly recommends Wind River starring Jeremy Renner. He also enjoyed watching the documentary, If I Leave Here Tomorrow about Lynyrd Skynyrd. Alan just saw RUSH Cinema Strangiato at the movies and loved every second. He rewatched Dances with Wolves and Tombstone, two fantastic Westerns. Alan is also hooked on the YouTube channels Ashleigh Burton and The Daily Doug. Misty is really liking the Apple TV show, Ted Lasso. She also likes The Leftovers and the documentary, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? about the BeeGees.
