Interview with Seinfeld crew member Thea De Sousa

Thea had some cool stories, and even an unexpected Twin Peaks connection. You can follow Thea on Instagram at the fantastic reality TV meme page @yourmomsarewatching.

Interview with Twin Peaks guest star Sara Paxton

Interview with Twin Peaks guest star Sara Paxton

February 4, 2022

This week I'm talking with Sara Paxton, who appeared in Part 4 of Twin Peaks: The Return as Candy Shaker, wife of Dougie Jones' coworker Bill. Sara shared her strange (and perfectly Lynchian) experience auditioning and acting on the show, and it's everything you'd want and more from a David Lynch production. We also talked about Sara's life growing up as an actor, her love of dogs, and the Seinfeld character she was nicknamed while filming The Inkeepers

This week’s musical guest is Luca De Paoli, an Italian singer-songwriter who’s released four self-produced albums and performed around the world. His latest album, Into The Night, is a tribute to the great composer and David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti. Stick around after the interview for Luca's cover of Badalamenti’s “Sycamore Trees.”

The origins of Seinpeaks with Dano Dunham

The origins of Seinpeaks with Dano Dunham

October 22, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues: exclusive conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld (and sometimes Twin Peaks!).

This week, I'm actually the interviewee. I was invited to appear on The Drive Home with Dano recently to talk about Seinpeaks with Texas radio host Dano Dunham. Dano's a member of the Seinpeaks community and a big fan of both shows, and we had a great time breaking down what makes them work so well together.

This week’s musical guest is Antighost, a post-punk, emo/grunge band out of Detroit. Stay tuned after the interview for their track “I Can’t Feel The Sun.”

Seinfeld Composer Jonathan Wolff shares his favorite themes from the show

Seinfeld Composer Jonathan Wolff shares his favorite themes from the show

October 10, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues: exclusive conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld (and sometimes Twin Peaks!).

This week, I'm back with Jonathan Wolff, the mind behind Seinfeld's iconic theme. With Seinfeld's official soundtrack now available, Jonathan and I dug into some of the show's most memorable tracks and explored what made them work so well. We also talked about how his music has found new life in the age of memes, and how he learned a lot from the relationship between David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti (guess what--he's a fan!).

Watertower Music has recently released, for the first time ever, the official soundtrack to Seinfeld--including over thirty tunes Wolff composed for the show. You can purchase it on all the major streaming apps, and listen here on Spotify.

This week’s musical spotlight is a collaboration between musicians Star Madman and Brian Sangmeister. Stick around to the end for their single "Eyes on the Horizon."
