'Orientation: Ryan Station' talks the end of 'Lost' with Time Magazine's James Poniewozik

ryan dharma station 4 leaf clover.jpgAs promised, here's our mega-podcast about the series finale of " Lost." Joining myself and my usual podcast partner ( The Chicago Tribune's Maureen "Mo" Ryan) is returning guest James Poniewozik. Having met both of them in person for the first time in the week leading up to the finale, it was great to meet virtually after "The End" to discuss our thoughts on the show, the overall reaction to it, and trying to figure out the ultimate meaning of "Lost" as a whole.

The podcast runs about 75 minutes in total. We didn't do our usual thing of watching the episode while discussing it, since that would have been too monumental a task to produce as well as to absorb as a listener. So instead, we hit broader topics raised by the episode itself, with a primary focus on the sideways world and what its meaning says about everything we've watched up until this point. It's a frank, honest discussion, and we hope you enjoy listening to it.

As we mention at the end of the podcast, we're going to do one more of these this week, centered around reader questions. So for the last time, give a great big "WAAAAAALT!" before your query below to be considered for inclusion in our podcast later this week.

In the meantime, enjoy!
