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.
