True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E7 After You’ve Gone

We’re a little late this week so it’s a good thing we’ve got a special episode in store for our listeners! First, we speak to author Michael Hughes, who wrote The One Literary Reference You Must Know to Appreciate True Detective, which quickly went viral and ignited a wildfire of fan interest on the web.

Then we discuss ‘After You’ve Gone.’ Eek! So many of our listeners provided such spot-on theories, it’s almost eerie! We discuss the storage shed and the disgusting new evidence, Hart’s motivations for taking such an active part in the investigation, and the mental space this episode finds our heroes occupying. And obviously much much more…. including lawn-mowing.

True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E6 Haunted Houses

Haunted Houses has us mourning the end of a marriage, a career, and our favorite buddy cop bromance. But take heart, because life is a flat circle and we can rejoice in what promises to be a fascinating reunion of Hart and Cohle in 2012. We talk about Maggie and Cohle gettin’ busy, Beth 2.0, a disturbing interrogation, and more.
Additionally, we explain the delay this week (sorry again!) and share our plans for podcast releases moving forward.

If you’d like to skip the (numerous and awesome!) listener feedback and jump straight to the discussion of Episode 6, go to 44:03.

True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E5 The Secret Fate of All Life

This show is blowing our minds! Not only was the plot advancement sensational, but your listener feedback and predictions were truly top notch! Join us as we learn more about the intersections between the personal and private lives of Hart and Chole, The Yellow King, and the circular nature of life. We also take time to go through all of the Truth Squad listener feedback and begin to cautiously develop some cohesive theories of our own (without any promises that they make any sense!)

NOTE 1: If you would prefer to get right to the recap, please start listening around 25 minutes and 50 seconds.

NOTE 2: The song ‘Eli’ that we reference during the discussion and was played during the ending credits of this week’s episode is by the Bosnian Rainbows.

True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E4 Who Goes There

This episode had us so flustered that I couldn’t even remember the name of our podcast (note the use of Truth and True interchangeably, haha)! The cinematography was absolutely incredible, and the plot took turns that honestly have our theories completely up in the air. The only thing that is certain is that Hart’s family is over it (well, at least temporarily) and Cohle’s past is coming back to haunt him in a very real way. Please join us for this nail biting, insanely great episode, “Who Goes There”, and email us to let us know your theories!

True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E3 The Locked Room

Biggest takeaways from True Detective S1 E3: life is just a dream imagined in the locked room that is our mind, there’s a scary beast-man donning tighty whities in a field, and Martin Hart will *not* be hiring the neighborhood boy to ~mow his lawn.~ We spend a lot of this episode hashing out the increasingly complicated interactions between Hart and Cohle along with examining each characters relationships with women.

True Detective Podcast: Truth Squad - S1E2 Seeing Things

Well, good ol’ family man Marty Hart is starting to look a little different from the boy scout that he presents to his interrogators. While the chinks in his armor start looking deeper, we learn that Cohle’s involvement with the HIDTA has caused serious psychological and physiological damage. We try to put together the pieces of the murder mystery as well as the nuanced personal conflicts that seem to be more and more the focus of this incredible drama.
