The West Wing Weekly Tickets
The West Wing Weekly TicketsIt might seem unusual that a podcast dedicated to a show actually started a decade after that show wrapped up, but it was welcomed by millions of fans, who are sometimes known as Wingnuts, who couldn't get enough of the show and tuned into the podcast. The podcast gained a lot of steam thanks to the person at the helm: actor Joshua Malina, who played Will Bailey on The West Wing and has had roles on other shows. He's joined every week by Hrishikesh Hirway, host of Song Exploder, to painstakingly pick through each of the show's 154 episodes to discuss the plot, occasionally inviting creatives and actors from the show to join them for the session. Although The West Wing Weekly will soon wrap up, there are still two live shows planned for superfans.
The Insider's Scoop to The West WingOn March 22, 2016, The West Wing Weekly debuted. Hosting the podcast were Hrishikesh Hirway and actor Joshua Malina. Malina, who had appeared on podcasts in the past, wanted a project that would be his own. The podcast hosts chose to release their first episode on September 22nd, which was the same day that the political drama it was based on had aired. Right from the start, The West Wing Weekly appealed to fans. The first guest was another actor from the show, Dulé Hill, who had played Charlie Young. Over the past three years, the hosts have discussed one episode of the show per each podcast episode, playing clips from the episode and bringing on guests and appearing live along the way.

For the podcast's very last episode in LA, actors Martin Sheen, Bradley Whitford and Mary McCormack will appear. More stars may join the live podcast recording.

Unlike some live podcasts, there is not a lot of audience participation. A live recording of The West Wing Weekly simply gives fans the chance to put faces to names and voices.
