Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me, Laura Palmer, Synchronicities, Ron Garcia & David Lynch Symbolism with Scott Ryan!

Spread the love

On today’s episode of the Occult Symbolism and Pop Culture with Isaac Weishaupt podcast we are joined by a well known figure in the world of Twin Peaks: Scott Ryan! He’s literally written the book on “Fire Walk With Me” and interviewed just about everyone in the universe of Twin Peaks so he joined me to discuss his book and the synchronicities that drew him deeper into the world of Twin Peaks! We’ll start out exploring the fandom of the show and fan festival history, what hooks all of us in, how Laura Palmer’s death affected us, the bond of Twin Peaks fans and artists and more! We’ll hear an AMAZING story of how Scott snagged a copy of the “Fire Walk With Me” script (YES- the SCRIPT) and Ron Garcia & David Lynch putting symbolism into the show! We’ll talk about Sheryl Lee’s performance as Laura Palmer and the toll it took on her, the depression of the character speaking to us and the meaning and origin of the angels in “Fire Walk With Me!” We’ll wrap up with some theories of Season 3 including Laura’s visions in the woods and who Judy is!
