Episode Info

Episode Info:

If you’re listening to the latest episode of “Wrapped in Podcast”, you may have won a jitterbug contest! The full four-member complement of America’s favorite legal podcast is back in action to review the David Lynch film that one panelist’s Amazon Echo referred to as “Mulholland Doctor”. Host J.R. Parker speculates about Justin Theroux’s apparent second puberty and leads a unanimous cabal of critics who are wholly unsympathetic to current complaints concerning the lack of chapter stops on latter-day DVDs. Non-lawyer Jeff Fallis provides professorial insights into the combustion of the film’s 88-minute cut, the extraordinarily absurd oddness of dream logic, and the director’s cinematic send-off of the 20th century. First-time viewer T. Kyle King louses up the introductions by engaging in premature explication and briefly flummoxes Ken Walczak with a wildly unconventional theory. For his part, Ken hates the slapstick hit man scene, sees significance in the rictus grins of the tiny elderly pod people, and offers a thorough overview of “Gilda” and its resonance for “Mulholland Drive”. During their deep dive into Lynch’s 2001 film noir, the crew engages in a wide-ranging exchange including allusions to the age before cell phones, apex narcissism, Bikini Atoll, “Blue Velvet”, “Bye Bye Birdie”, Nancy Drew, Doctor Faustus, gigantic copper fish, “The Godfather”, “Inception”, “Jackie Brown”, karma, Elmore Leonard, “Lost”, “Lost Highway”, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, pixellated genitalia, psychosexual foreplay, quantum physics, Paul Revere, “Riverdale”, “The Sopranos”, “Sunset Boulevard”, Melania Trump, “Twin Peaks” episodes from the European pilot to the Showtime finale, “The Usual Suspects”, and the Venn diagram of perverts and purists. Join the gang for the first hour of their examination of “Mulholland Drive”, complete with Ken’s tantalizing cliffhanger conclusion designed to whet the audience’s appetite for the second installment of Episode 26 of “Wrapped in Podcast”!
