We began recording this week’s Firewall & Iceberg Podcast with me outdoors. Then a plane flew overhead, so I moved indoors, to what turned out to be a noisy day at the office. In other words, no matter where we go and what we do, there is background noise. But in the foreground, lots to talk about, with a bunch of new and returning shows premiering this week, the next “Twin Peaks” episode, plus our first dip into the mailbag in a couple of weeks. The run-down:

“Weeds” — 01:00 – 10:25
“The Big C” — 10:30 – 21:00
“The Voice” — 21:00 – 28:10
“State of Georgia” — 28:20 – 34:00
“Necessary Roughness” — 34:00 – 44:20
Listener Mail: Peter Falk — 44:30 – 50:40
Listener Mail: TV Directors — 50:45 – 56:40 
“Twin Peaks” — 56:45 – 01:11:10
