Last Week in Twin Peaks Podcasts, Week of August 13th to August 19th

Part Fourteen knocked it out of the park. Very little disagreement out and about in podcast land. Even the most frustrated podcasts had to give Grace Zabriskie props on her performance. Most podcasts think Cole should've mentioned Janey-E by name when he called the FBI Vegas office, mentioned the international pilot being referenced in James' …
