“Twin Peaks” Podcast for NERDSoul Sunday’s

This past week I was invited to contribute to the NERDSoul Sunday’s podcast by The Comic’s Bolt, and in the podcast I talk about Twin Peaks (of course) and why I love the series, what made it viable for primetime broadcast TV, and the show’s use of melodrama to hybridize other genres. If you have the time, take a listen and let me know what you think! If you’re a Twin Peaks fan, do you agree with some of my points or take a different stance? And if you haven’t watched the series, maybe it will pique your interest?

I’ve also included a link to the video essay I made in 2016, which is the source of much of the research I reference in the podcast.

    omg! one could argue that season three had no context at all! haha jk! I got into twin peaks last year and fell in love with it immediately! And that soundtrack though, sometimes I just listen to it when Im driving or walking around. lol! I enjoy the twin peaks related stuff you post! those videos are so funny and I especially love when the llama snorts at Coop! I’ll def listen to the pod, watch your video essay & report back! oh boy now I wanna watch the series all over again! thanks julia!
