Trans 2008-10-05: “The Whole Truth”


This episode of “The Transmission” takes a look at “The Whole Truth,” the 16th episode of the second season of “LOST.” We recap the story in eight minutes, then spend some time discussing it in greater detail. Then, we turn it over to You All Everybody, featuring our brilliant listeners and readers. Before we get to the Forward Cabin, we share a song from “The Others LOST Band.” Then, we report on the last two weeks of production here on the island (including Jen’s first “LOST” shoot!).

    re: the others band: wow! i need to hear this record. it’s funny though, because the music is so good i kind of want some serious lyrics, rather than the lost recap ones. i love that song though. thanks for playing that song. wow wow wow

    Hi Ryan and Jen!! Let me tell you that im from Buenos Aires, Argentina and i have to congratulate you for you podcast!! Its awesome!!
    I always listen to it while i in the subway going to class and i really dig the way you analyse each chapter.
    Plus, the spoilers are great.
    About this chapter, i really think it was great, because, it gives more perspective into Sun and Jin’s relationship and it also shows that Sun is not as innocent as she appeared to be in season one.
    Moving forward to other seasons, i really think that you are right when you say that babies are a key to the show. I have a strong feeling that we’ll defintely see more about Ji Weon and Aaron in Season 5.

    Keep up the great work!!

    I was listening to your podcast, and the song played caught my memory! It sounds like another song that I know.. currently trying to recall the name. The Others Lost Band did a great job.

    Parts of the song sounds a little like Life in Disguise by The Slip.

    Just wanted to say thanks for feeding my lost addiction!

    I’ve been watching the previous seasons from the beginning and it’s amazing how many things are starting to fit into place (well, not as many as we would like, but it’s interesting to see more connections being made).

    For this episode, I think you were right to point out Sun’s comment to Kate about “a mother should never leave her baby”… That’s playing such a big part now that Kate has taken Aaron of island.

    Very cool heads up on the spoilers – that gives us a little bit of insight into how quickly the group is going to be getting back together for the next season. I can’t wait to see how they actually find / get back to the island.

    One of the many things that has me scratching my head is why Ben is getting everyone together. It appears as though Ben’s motivation is to kill Widmore’s daughter (Penny) out of revenge. Ben has never been the altruistic sort, so whatever he is doing is likely serving his own agenda. The fact that Ben can’t return to the island (as far as we know) would seem to support that he either cares more deeply about the island and its future impact on the world, or he is doing whatever it takes to flush out Penny. Or maybe he can somehow accomplish both at the same time.

    Ok, my head hurts. Keep it up!
