Now Peaking Episode 38: Gotta light? - For Annual Subscribers

June 28, 2017

Forty-four years before the death of Laura Palmer, the first nuclear weapon was detonated in White Sands, New Mexico. How is it possible that act had a direct impact on the small town of Twin Peaks, Washington? Maybe this episode explained that in forty minutes of trippy, black and white, mostly silent film. All that is discussed, plus the shocking turn for Mr. C, and the performance by The Nine Inch Nails. Hear it all on this Now Peaking!
