Lost in the Movies: Twin Peaks & the World w/ Discourse Collective: Lynch, Politics & Prestige TV

Twin Peaks & the World w/ Discourse Collective: Lynch, Politics & Prestige TV

(Francesco Bongiorni for The Washington Post
- I LOVE this illustration)

A few weeks ago, the left-wing cultural podcast Discourse Collective invited me to discuss Twin Peaks with them. The episode was released yesterday but recorded before the new series premiere, so we only discuss the original series and Fire Walk With Me. The series is contrasted with the present-day craze for "prestige TV" (as covered in Matt Christman's recent "How TV Became Respectable Without Getting Better") and we also dig into Lynch's tangled political history (which I also talked about on a recent episode of Twin Peaks Unwrapped if you want to hear more). Hopefully we can all return to the subject after the new series has wrapped up.

Some time in 2019 or 2020, the episode was taken down with most others from this podcast and there doesn't seem to be any prospect of it being restored. Unfortunately, I did not download a copy myself when it was available, making this and my next appearance the only online work in twelve years to disappear from this archive. If it ever re-emerges, I will cross-post it again here and in the directories.
