Ep 014 – Twin Peaks – The One-Armed Man


The One Armed Man

 

If you’re struggling to fall asleep a sleep aid podcast may be the solution for you. Let me tell you a story in a way that slows your spinning mind and allows you to relax and drift away.

 

In tonight’s episode we return once again to the sleepy Washington town of Twin Peaks as Dale Cooper and his companions seem to be getting closer to finding out who the real killer is.

 

At the same time Audrey Horne and Donna are also following their own paths to find Laura’s killer.

Buddy Digs Deep


*Two apologies to start with. The episode is going up pretty late because I had a bit of a torrid week trying to outline tonights story, and the sound quality is a bit off because I was very SMRT and forgot to turn off the fishtank filter before improvising the whole episode*

 

Buddy has been visiting the gnomes for some time now, and he is curious about the lives of the goblins that the gnomes tell him about, and that he caught a glance of once before.

Twin Peaks – Rest in Pain


*After I’d finished recording the audio for this episode news came out about the passing of Peggy Lipton, the actress who played Norma, the diner owner.

 

Even if one has never seen Twin Peaks you will recognise her from one of her many roles in television over the decades.*

 

So who killed Laura Palmer, as revealed in Dale Cooper’s dream? Oh, he forgot. Oops.

 

But Laura makes it to her funeral on time, despite the FBI forensic expert’s attempts.

Obviously there will be spoilers for the show, and while Twin Peaks does have some disturbing content, the intention of Sleepy Time Tales is to help you sleep, so I’ll avoid those bits as much as possible.

Amazon has some very interesting media for Twin Peaks, besides the show itself, including the apparently rather excellent book The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost, the show’s co-creator, so take a look.

Tales of Bellerophon


Tales of Bellerophon

An ancient Greek parable against arrogance

 

How does one make a story about an epic battle between a man on a flying horse and a fire-breathing Lion/Dragon/Goat hybrid boring enough to fall asleep to?

 

Give this a listen and find the answer to that question.

Zen, or the Skill to Catch a Killer


This week we find out about Agent Dale Cooper’s strange method of investigation, learned in a dream about Tibet.

 

I’m starting to see why this show has such a reputation for weirdness, because it starts to get strange with this episode.
