||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 8: Omega Station||True Detective Season 2 is over, and it went out with a bang. Well, lots of bangs. It was an unusual season, and an unusual season finale—and as it turns out, we had more than a few conflicting thoughts about it. Tune in, then let us know what you tho||8/11/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 7: Black Maps and Motel Rooms||In the penultimate episode of True Detective season two, every step someone takes towards the truth, the tighter the noose cinches around their neck. When each character finds who is holding their rope, will they charge at them with full force, hunker d||8/4/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 6: Church in Ruins||With an impressive infiltration-gone-wrong setpiece spanning much of its final third, this episode of True Detective Season 2 was among our favorite yet. The investigation chugged along, and our principal characters got to dive into some heady emotional||7/27/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 5: Other Lives||After last week's climactic gun battle, pieces of the mystery are coming together like they never have before. It's a big reset for True Detective Season 2—for its characters, for their investigation, and for the show as a whole. And that feels refres||7/21/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 4: Down Will Come||By the end of this episode, we were left just as lost as our detectives were following their very bloody shootout. There were a lot of strong character moments in "Down Will Come," but overall we didn't find it to keep up the momentum of the preceding t||7/15/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 3: Maybe Tomorrow||The plot threads keep piling up–but now we know the characters of True Detective Season 2 well enough to trust them to guide us through.

||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 2: Night Finds You||After the second episode of True Detective Season 2, we're bought in. Despite some lingering misgivings from the season premiere, the show has firmly staked its claim in pulpy conspiratorial Southern California noir fiction, and the character relationsh||6/29/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 1: The Western Book of the Dead||True Detective Season 2 is off to a contentious start. Nobody is quite sure to make of what appears to be an even bigger departure from Season 1 than was expected, but we still find plenty to like (and some to be cautiously optimistic about) in this wid||6/22/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitTrue Detective Weekly 0: Introduction||Welcome to True Detective Weekly! We'll be discussing each episode of True Detective Season 2 as it airs on HBO starting June 21. In the meantime, we sit down to talk about what we liked about Season 1, and why we're excited about the show's unusual ant||6/19/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
These hosts talk about media in a way I wish I could. They’re so deliberate, articulate and intelligent. Instead of a “this show is real good” approach, they actively try to dissect the reasons why they feel a certain way. They’re getting a feel for the show at the exact same time we are, and it feels like we’re all trying to figure it out together. I love it.
I don't watch True Detective. I don't even have HBO. I just love to hear these guys talk!
