    Metropolitan

    Metropolitan

    This week we are covering our second Whit Stillman movie, his first, Metropolitan. This movie is listed as a modern adaptation of Mansfield Park even though it really isn’t. It does however talk about the novel and works with some of its themes, which leads to us having a lot to talk about.

    Lost Highway Pt. 2

    Lost Highway Pt. 2

    This week we finish our coverage of Lost Highway. We spend a good amount of the episode speculating on what it all means, how much is real and where it fits in with the recurring themes of David Lynch’s work.

    Lost Highway, Pt. 1

    Lost Highway, Pt. 1

    This week we are on to one of David Lynch’s seminal movies, Lost Highway. A movie about memory and murder, where every character and even the film itself seems to be divided and doubled at the same time. We get into the spirit by dividing our coverage into two parts so be sure to come back next week for more.

Blackshafen ,

Love this show.

Love the show and love their dynamic. I was expecting it to start with one Austen fan and one Lynch fan but Maya was the fan of both and Christian was the newcomer to both. The show is a fun not too serious look at both subjects in depth but they down drown you with minutiae. My only complaint is the audio levels are not the most consistent but they have rereleased a few episodes with improved audio as they became more experienced. There are a lot of Twin Peaks podcasts and Jane Austen podcasts but this is I’m pretty sure the only one that does both. Their dynamic is what makes doing both work without feeling jarring or forced. 5/5 -Blake

Came for the Austen, but now curious about Lynch!

As an avid Austen reader and lover of anything period drama, I’ve so enjoyed this podcast, and it’s entertained me through many a long drive! I’d never watched anything David Lynch before this, but am now easing into a couple of his works out of sheer curiosity after listening to about all the Austen related episodes :)

Wonderful

Just recently discovered this podcast and am already in love! I’m a Stitcher user, and for some reason there are only 4 episodes of this show on Stitcher, but this podcast is worth using a second app for, that’s how much fun it is! Never would have thought to combine Austen and Lynch but it really works wonders seeing their work juxtaposed like this. High recommend!
