In the first podcast ever to be picked up to series from the Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project, Dalton Wilcox, the self-described “Poet Laureate of the West”, will re-watch the classic TV show Bonanza! Dalton and his co-hosts, country music legend Mutt Taylor (Matt Gourley) and Biblical home and garden accessories entrepreneur and Bonanza superfan Amy Sleeverson (Maria Bamford) will welcome special guests each week for a deep dive into an episode of the beloved and enduring western series that, in Dalton’s words, “did more to teach people about the western lifestyle than anything else until me and my poems and stories came along”. High praise indeed. Hello friend, come on in, the gate is open wide - Bonanza!
