Last Week In Twin Peaks Podcasts, Week of September 4th to September 10th (Part One)

This week's podcasts all happened in the immediate aftermath of the finale's debut, and there were so many, and so many with a run time beyond two hours each, that I am splitting this column into two parts. This is part one of two, and part two can be found here. In both posts you'll find …

You're going to see new names in parentheses after a number of write-ups this week, and they're names you'll see regularly from now …

Last Week in Twin Peaks Podcasts, Week of July 30th to August 5th

Part Twelve was a tricky one, and the podcasters ran the gamut from "not my favorite of the bunch but still had great moments" to "what in the world was THAT?" Everyone had something to say about the awkward introduction of Audrey Horne and it wasn't just "why?" The two strongest scenes of Part Twelve …
