The Wilder Ride

Our guest is radio talk host, BK on the Air. We open discussing one of Alan's dogs, Riley, deciding to eat a bottle of Advil. It was a crazy, dare we say, wild, few days following the incident. We are happy to say, Riley is still alive and with us, which only helps to make the story more entertaining. Once BK joins, we get to learn about his passion for talk as well as when and where it began. The episode moves to some funny news items and they wrap with some podcast shout-outs.

The Wilder Ride

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.

In this first episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray are joined by their wives, Susan Delmonico and Amy Murray, to discuss the beloved film, The Princess Bride. As part of our Patreon season, instead of breaking the film down minute-by-minute, we opt for a more relaxed and open discussion of the film, the actors and some of the behind-the-scenes stories we have researched. We hope you enjoy this month's Patreon special as we bring you a new episode each and every Wednesday during the off-season.

This season, we opted for a new approach. Instead of moving through the movie in sequence, hosts Alan and Walt, along with guests, Susan Delmonico and Brad Stephens, kick back and talk about the film. It's a new and refreshing way for the listener to enjoy hearing our Wilder Ride take on this classic Cohen Brothers movie. The first episode is going to be available as a bonus episode.
