In our second episode, Kate and Simon are joined by longtime collaborator and partner in crime Justine Smith to discuss the pivotal second and third episodes of Twin Peaks. The wide-ranging discussion veers into the origins of surrealism, the success rates of other series directors at adapting Lynch’s signature style, and much more. Also: sweaters, watching the show the “wrong” vs. “right” way, and our initial pet peeves.
Simon is a roving writer and editor who has been crawling slowly Westward across Canada for the last decade. (He currently resides in Toronto.)

He is a former co-host of the Televerse podcast. His favorite films include F for Fake, Brazil, Stroszek, The Fog of War, Grave of the Fireflies and In a Lonely Place. He can be found on Twitter (mostly yelling about far-left politics, ye been warned) at @hollowmines.
