Jake Fogelnest returns to discuss the most substantial, "Lynchian" episode yet, coming just before Twin Peaks goes on a two-week break before the final ten episodes start airing. Does this episode deserve the "one of the great episodes in TV history" praise that Jeremy and others gave it the night it aired? Are the questions it opens up more fascinating than the ones it does/doesn't answer?
Does it convince us that we all really need a serious Transcendental Meditation practice?
Jake Fogelnest previously appeared on Episode 2 of Fire Talk With Me. He was our first guest, and is therefore better than the rest. Read More
Allie and Jeremy are joined by the one and only FilmCritHULK to discuss the continuing dividends paid from watching the original series as well as Fire Walk With Me, new micro-mysteries revealed as we continue on through season three, and the revelation of how "Lynchian cops" differ from many in modern media (and potentially real life?).

Allie and Jeremy have both just seen a new episode of Twin Peaks together for the very first time! A lot changes in 25 years, but in Twin Peaks, it's fascinating what stays the same. Spoilers start quickly (there is a warning) as we revisit Allie's early hypotheses about split timelines and realities, her demand that her Cooper/Audrey thirst be validated, and most importantly...the coffee and donut situation in the 2017 of Twin Peaks.
Covered here: Episodes 30 & 31 (31 & 32 including The Pilot, or S03E01 and S03E02)
Fire Talk With Me will return very soon with coverage of The Return, Parts 3 & 4. Read More
After 2 years instead of 25, Allie and Jeremy return to discuss Fire Walk With Me. They reflect on the podcast's journey so far, the unconventional choices made regarding the focus of the Twin Peaks feature film, and the texture it adds to the series.

Dana Gould joins Allie and Jeremy to discuss the final episode of what we can now call the original series of Twin Peaks.

Covered here: Episode 29 (30 including The Pilot, or S02E22)
Fire Talk With Me will return, and...more than likely do so in less than 25 years. Read More
Ray Wise is a fan of monsters in the movies, and has played his own share of them...including Leland Palmer. Last August, Fire Talk With Me producer (and Electric Shadow host) Moisés got a few precious minutes with Ray to talk about Twin Peaks, Swamp Thing, and the roles he still hungers to play.
As a bonus, hear Ray record the show intro you now know so well...and in a single take.
Scheduling our very special guest for the podcast covering the final episode of the TV show has proven tricky. We were going to hold this interview for later, but here it is to tide you over until we have a new, "proper" episode. Read More
