EP No. 18 — The 13th Secret: “What year is it anyway?”

To Listen, Punch It up to 88MPH: Screen Shot 2017-09-10 at 3.05.29 PM

In their first post-finale podcast about Twin Peaks: The Return, Karl and Jubel begin what will surely be the long task of parsing out what the hell just happened. Setting aside the cross-textual analysis for the most part, they look at how Lynch/Frost structured the Return, discuss some of their favorite (and least favorite) elements, the chances of another season, and break down that haunting final scene. Some outside tangents are explored: Orpheus and Eurydice, Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” and the phases of human sexuality are brought in as tools to understand both the text of Twin Peaks, and the phenomenon of such a challenging piece of art, and popular entertainment.

The Sixth Secret, bright with sinuous rills of “Starr Creek”

Listen to the Secret

Nathan Carson is the drummer for Witch Mountain, a Doom Metal band from one of our favorite Twin Peaks adjacent cities, Portland! He’s also (in no particular order) a Twin Peaks fan, a really cool dude, and the author of the Bizarro Fiction novel Starr Creek which is perhaps more Lovecraftian than Peakian, but is very, very good, which is the main thing, isn’t it?

We talk to him about music, the weird, weird things, writing, touring and really get down to the brass tacks about what kind of wonderful trees there are out there.

Also, his publisher is Lazy Fascist Press, which puts out many books that are enjoyed by us.
