Because it absolutely had to happen, Craig and James finally make good on their by now bulging bank of Twin Peaks references and direct their attentions towards that unique Pacific Northwest locale for an entire episode, with more to follow. Yep, to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Twin Peaks: The Return, our hosts are embarking on a deep dive of the revival in future episodes, and here do all the prep by looking back on the original show, revelling on some of the aspects that have made it a touchstone in their cultural lives for over 30 years.
PLUS, the usual round-up of current cultural goings-on, including Sons of Kemet, Stephanie Phillips' excellent book on Solange, and a healthy dash of politics.
