twin peaks, as interpreted by ashley brandt and mathew olson

  1. Thumb 1505224578 artwork

    Parts 17 & 18

    Ashley and Mat discuss the finale of The Return.

  2. Thumb 1504063173 artwork

    Part 16

    Returning guests Jess Lane (@notjesslane) and Brendan James (@deep_beige) join us for our 50th episode to talk about father-son bonding, texting etiquette, finger sandwiches, and dancing like nobody's watching.

  3. Thumb 1503464272 artwork

    Part 15

    Scott Benson (@ImSoSurePodcast) joins us once again as we approach the end of Twin Peaks: The Return.

    It's time to talk about Judy.

  4. Thumb 1502858762 artwork

    Part 14

    Joel Bocko (@LostInTheMovies) joins us for a Parisian dream, some sandwiches with cheese, one hell of a Twin Peaks clip show, misophonia triggering noises, a superhero origin story, and... the best scene ever.

  5. Thumb 1502287005 artwork

    Part 13

    Conga lines, gym sets, Mormons, existentialism... and a place called Drape Runner Corner. On top of all that, the return of our "favorite" piece of Twin Peaks music. What a week.

  6. Thumb 1501961360 artwork

    Part 12

    We talk about Agent Preston, Sarah Palmer, the long-awaited — and oddly frustrating — return of a beloved character, and we brainstorm the perfect way that Mr. Todd could be taken out (it involves a Wendy's).

  7. Thumb 1501078439 artwork

    Part 11

    Jess Lane (@notjesslane) joins us to discuss allusions to art, parallels to True Detective, and straight-up references to Se7en in this week's installment. Oh, and we talk about the Briggs situation... you know we do. Apologies for the echo-y audio — the Woodsmen may have interfered.

  8. Thumb 1500518854 artwork

    Part 10

    Part 10 wasn't our favorite, but it was a useful jumping-off point to talk about larger concerns with the new series. Plus, how can you not love Albert and Constance?

  9. Thumb 1499836855 artwork

    Part 9

    Three investigations. Two Coopers. One sweet, sweet boy. It's the Frostiest episode of the new series yet, and we're here to gab about it.

  10. Thumb 1499734093 artwork

    The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

    Our discussion of The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer — which assumes you've seen the original series, Fire Walk With Me, The Missing Pieces, Parts 1 through 8 of the new series, and that you've read The Secret History of Twin Peaks. Got that all down? Good.

  11. Thumb 1498626263 artwork

    Part 8

    Brendan James (@deep_beige) of Chapo Trap House joins us to discuss Part 8. We ponder woodsmen, soul orbs, gross eggs, Kafka critters, and "The" Nine Inch Nails — plus we take a moment to consider Lynch and Frost's original plans for a third season.

  12. Thumb 1498102396 artwork

    Part 7

    Part 7 feels like a real return to the town of Twin Peaks and this episode might feel like a return to the old Twin Peaks Peeks — longer discussions, goofier tangents... and some last minute dunking on Billy Zane.

  13. Thumb 1497466048 artwork

    Part 6

    Scott Benson joins us to talk about loss. About getting to know people. About mysterious messages... and... about swearing in the rain.

  14. Thumb 1496841034 artwork

    Part 5

    Reckless kids. Shady dealings. Mysterious phone calls. There's a lot of shit to dig through this week — good thing we've got our golden shovels.

  15. Thumb 1496234405 artwork

    Parts 3 & 4

    Familiar faces. Unfamiliar spaces. Good fortune. Bad smells. Thumbs up. Furrowed brows.

    Our dharma? Podcasting. Your dharma...

  16. Thumb 1495651548 artwork

    Parts 1 & 2

    The stars turn. A time presents itself. Intros are nailed. "Lost" is discussed. As is "Scooby Doo." Billy Ray Cyrus is invoked. A new member joins the Silver Fox Club.

    In other words, Twin Peaks Peeks is back.

    The Georgia Coffee Ads

    New episodes of Twin Peaks are just a few days away. We're still here. Today we're talking about coffee ads. Join us.

  19. Thumb 1463609902 artwork

    The Missing Pieces

    Our discussion of The Missing Pieces (deleted scenes from Fire Walk With Me) and our initial thoughts on the casting news from Showtime!

  20. Thumb 1463006905 artwork

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

    Our discussion of Fire Walk With Me. We also delve a little bit into our thoughts on what the film might mean for season 3 and have a comment or two on the recently released casting news from Showtime, but our extended discussion of the latter will accompany our episode on The Missing Pieces.

  21. Thumb 1460747246 artwork

    Beyond Life and Death

    Twin Peaks Peeks finishes Season 2 with guest Scott Benson of I'm So Sure Podcast. This week's cover art is a comparison of the Owl Cave petroglyph with a real petroglyph in Washington, sent to us by Christian Hartleben (@prophit19701).

  22. Thumb 1458415224 artwork

    Miss Twin Peaks

    A rocky start to what aired as the first part of the Twin Peaks finale in 1991.

  23. Thumb 1456714746 artwork

    The Path to the Black Lodge

    We credit a particular writer for putting the entire Twin Peaks team on their back this week as we approach the season 2 conclusion. There's also a murder offscreen this week, because Twin Peaks.

  24. Thumb 1456110594 artwork

    Variations on Relations

    The show starts picking up threads to weave together in the finale. Oh, and Donna makes the least impactful threat ever.

  25. Thumb 1455330702 artwork

    On the Wings of Love

    Things are looking up on this week's episode. It's a miracle. A massive, massive miracle.

  26. Thumb 1454724179 artwork

    Wounds and Scars

    We try to figure out the motivations driving each character in the show. It only goes sort of well.

  27. Thumb 1454320382 artwork

    The Condemned Woman

    Even though there's another new face in Twin Peaks, all eyes are on Ben's FILA jacket.

  28. Thumb 1453528903 artwork

    Slaves & Masters

    TPP is back from hiatus with (1) some news about the new series (2) serious discussion (3) Dana Ashbrook talk (4) Chris Pine talk and (5) more Dana Ashbrook talk.

    Mat got lazy about updating the podcast. If you've already watched the episode, you've got one guess as to what kind of scene we spend time ranking this week.

  31. Thumb 1449243615 artwork

    The Black Widow

    Molly Shannon is in this one. In an alternate timeline, Leo would be starting a new business venture. Just pretend a writer's strike happened.

  32. Thumb 1448163672 artwork

    Masked Ball

    A wealth of new characters helps us add to the ever-growing pile of Twin Peaks spin-off ideas.

  33. Thumb 1447468600 artwork

    Dispute Between Brothers

    Are you on the Twin Peaks "list?" You don't know what the list is? Oh, then you weren't invited.

  34. Thumb 1446873053 artwork

    Arbitrary Law

    Fair warning: this episode temporarily becomes a "Lost" podcast. But then again, by the Tommy Westphall Hypothesis, wasn't it always?

  35. Thumb 1446296495 artwork

    Drive with a Dead Girl

    Does Twin Peaks let us have private moments with characters? Will Ashley's dream of a Twin Peaks sitcom starring Norma ever be realized? Is Seattle really that far from Twin Peaks?

  36. Thumb 1445660076 artwork
  37. Thumb 1444377115 artwork


    Audrey returns. Josie leaves. The One Armed Man speaks. Bobby and Shelly raid the only party store in all of Twin Peaks.

    [Bonus] Season 3 Filming Field Trip

    Ashley and Mat discuss their trip to check out the Washington towns where the show was (and is being) filmed! No casting spoilers! #KeepTheMysteryAlive

    Laura's Secret Diary

    Hey, while you're listening to this episode, pop open your browser and donate to Planned Parenthood. Podcasts about TV shows are nice and all, but real peoples' real healthcare is at risk:

  41. Thumb 1442708375 artwork

    The Man Behind Glass

    The hosts return from North Bend, but there are no from-set spoilers for the new series of Twin Peaks. Instead, there are spoilers for Mulholland Drive and a few other things. Whoops.

  42. Thumb 1442032384 artwork


    Ashley and Mat discuss: does this show not make room for women in the humorous supporting cast? They watch: Blue Velvet. They eat: creamed corn.

  43. Thumb 1441379111 artwork

    May The Giant Be With You

    It's the Season 2 premiere! This week, Ashley and Mat are joined by special guest Scott Benson. All three set out to answer an important question: Who's your favorite Hayward?

  44. Thumb 1440398530 artwork

    The Last Evening

    The season one finale of Twin Peaks. There are so many cliffhangers we found a list of them all (warning: list may exaggerate the number of substantive cliffhangers).

  45. Thumb 1439585448 artwork

    Realization Time

    The Mystery Teens are particularly busy in this week's episode... but should they be focusing on the mystery of the grapes instead?

  46. Thumb 1438397631 artwork

    Cooper's Dreams

    The Icelandic investors arrive in Twin Peaks... but the question is, did they time travel to get there?

  47. Thumb 1437793653 artwork

    The One-Armed Man

    There are two really long parts of this REALLY long episode. No, neither of those parts is "Drape Runner Corner."

  48. Thumb 1437175942 artwork

    Rest in Pain

    Ashley and Mat discuss funeral fashion and the internet's inability to form good theories around this episode.

  49. Thumb 1436560340 artwork
  50. Thumb 1435832077 artwork

    Traces to Nowhere

    Cooper and Audrey flirt, Donna does Laura dirty, and a fish goes for a swim in some coffee.
