Session Feature: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

By on


“Talking to Mark Frost is like talking to a wise leprechaun that took you a really long time to track down and capture. Having worked alongside David Lynch as a writer and co-creator of one of the most widely pondered and tantalizingly confusing TV shows, Twin Peaks, he holds in his brain the answers to everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the fictional town and the characters who live there, and a great deal of them will stay in his brain.”
