Here are a handful of reviews from people who have listened to the show, which still has a 5.0 rating with 43 reviews on Apple Podcasts:
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.
I will pay the ultimate compliment to this podcast. They use good equipment so it sounds great. And the content is spectacular. It’s like listening to your friends sitting around and talking about movies, but just listening. Easy to listen to, and they deliver the goods.
Great listen and lots of fun
Alan Sanders and Walt Murray do an amazing job bringing out the most minute details of the films of the late great Gene Wilder and making them an interesting and entertaining listening experience. They take great care to find a wide variety of guests to cover all aspects of their content and to discuss the genius of greats like Mel Brooks, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman, Cleavon Little, Richard Pryor, Slim Pickens, and many more. Well worth subscribing and liking on Facebook too!
It plays like a lit fuse torching bright to the climatic conclusion. The Wilder Ride is THE place for Gene Wilder fans. A fun and informative podcast that focuses on all things Wilder, from the dazzlingly brilliant Blazing Saddles to the genius of The Woman in Red, and Young Frankenstein. The hosts: Alan Sanders and Walt Murray leave no stone unturned in their mission to explore the depth and humanity so evident in Gene Wilder’s masterful movies. Drop by and listen to their podcast today. But be warned––this stuff is addictive.
Not just for Gene Wilder fans
As part of the Movies by Minutes family, this show is another in a long list of highly entertaining podcasts. I stopped listening to music in the car years ago; it’s now all podcasts all the time. Alan and Walt deliver high quality amusements with every episode. If you’re not yet a Gene Wilder fan, you will become one by subscribing and listening to the show. Keep up the great work guys!
A lot of fun
Alan & Walt take a fabulous movie & make it even funnier with their take on it. The banter between the two is great & prepare yourself to take rides on their tangent trains of thought too. Keep it up, guys!
