We Deal in Lead – Episode One: Introduction to the Podcast and a review of Open Range

Welcome to the Busted Trail Saloon. Behind the bar there’s whiskey, there’s ladies yonder, and the men at the poker table are from the We Deal in Lead Podcast. Folks from out of town may want to sit down and play a hand, or mayhap listen to an old timer spin a yarn or two. Whatever the reason for comin’ in, stick around, holster yer weapons, and rest your boots.

A part of the Movie Podcast Network, We Deal in Lead is a podcast focusing on westerns, big and small. From the golden era, featuring John Wayne, Glenn Ford, and James Stewart, to the Spaghetti’s with Clint Eastwood, and then off to hills the modern westerns like Silverado, Tombstone, and Appaloosa, we review and discuss the great wild west until the cows come home. Hell, we even get into some TV here and there.

In the first episode, the posse talks ’bout what the podcast is about, why come westerns, and then finally get around to choppin’ up and chewin’ on Open Range, starring Kevin Costner and Robert DuVall. Think ya’d like to contribute? Give a holler in the comments section.

Hey guys
I love the new show. I really enjoyed the segment about real life slingers of lead (Wild Bill Hickok).
My must see recommendation is Brimstone. It is my favourite movie of the year so far. Very dark and disturbing though.
Great first pick, I love Open Range too. I own it and have always said that it is underappreciated .
Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to hear more episodes.

The Proposition is a great movie too.


I second Brimstone. Great flick.

Nice work on the podcast!

Woah, woah, woah! Hold yer damn horses! Why it ruffles my tail feathers to read “Golden era, featuring John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, to the modern westerns like Tombstone and Appaloosa” in the podcast description, above. John Wayne and Clint Eastwood are generally seen as comin’ from two totally different cinematic movements. It’s true that Clint could be found in shows like Rawhide and Maverick, early in his acting day. And Eastwood’s career overlapped with Wayne’s for about 20 years, but the Golden Age Westerns where John Wayne found his biggest success in the ’40s and ’50s are completely different… Read more »
