Ten years ago (almost exactly to the day) I documented my history of cinephilia through a series of movie books; today I continue that tradition in podcast form with a rundown of the books that guided my Twin Peaks journey since 2014, in the order I read them. The emphasis tends to be on how they shaped or intersected with the themes or approaches I was exploring, but I'd love to hear your general thoughts on these books (and others) - I'll include them with future listener feedback, and perhaps share some more of my own too. And I've linked my interviews with several of these authors below the covers.

This will be the last random "Twin Peaks Reflections" section before I take a brand new approach to be announced in June (albeit already previewed on Twitter). I'm quite excited to begin presenting that.

For $5/month patrons, I continue my Lost in Twin Peaks podcast with the episode on Laura's funeral, again over two hours and with room for plenty of additional context on other shows and news stories of the period as well as in-depth exploration of the ongoing investigation and the episode's events...



And for the main podcast, in addition to the Twin Peaks books, I cover other podcast recommendations (including a few Peaks specials amongst the usual political suspects) and cross the halfway point on my archival 100 Favorites series, including at least one movie you may have seen me discuss before!


Here's something to look at while you listen...
