Instead of moving through the movie in sequence, hosts Alan and Walt, along with guests, Susan Delmonico and Brad Stephens, just 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 to our regular subscribers as well as Patreon.
