"Diane...": The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper

Your host John takes a quick detour into the 1990 “Diane…” audiotape collecting any number of internal thoughts of Agent Cooper and connective tissue for the plot leading into Season 2 of Twin Peaks. The insights into Albert and Audrey make this a worthy listen, and the rest of the recording is a good time too.
