The Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of the Duneiversity have arrived in their mortarbards and identical gowns! To take you by the academic hand! And guide you on a bizarre science fantasy journey through the histories of the body and the folds of space!

We will be talking about Dune, a couple of chapters at a time (ish)! And our thoughts surrounding it from a young, queer, black lens and with a healthy skepticism for the science fiction literary canon! And Frank Herbert's "Cerebral, genius writing"!

    18: WE WATCHED THE TRAILER

    EYES AUDIBLY SNAP OPEN

    WE HAVE NEVER HEARD A PINK FLOYD SONG IN OUR LIVES!!!

    So, look. We aren't alive again but we're something more like undead creatures, rising from our graves with rotting flesh to deliver 45 minutes of barely edited content. There's a lot of background noise in this episode but it's called AMBIANCE and you're going to like it. Josie got me out of bed at 9pm (listen,,,) to record a podcast and I wasn't about to put together a good audio setup.

    We talk about the DUNE 2020 TRAILER which happened, we guess. Then we talk about the DUNE 1984 TRAILER which we enjoy much more. And then in between those things we talk about lots of other ??? stuff ??? that's seemingly unrelated to Dune if that's what you're here for, and then we talk about stuff we've been enjoying (???) recently.

    Thanks everyone so much for your PATIENCE with us, hoping very much to be back to you all with a chapter read soon!
    Here's links to stuff we talked about
    Music Theory To Explain God's Absence

    2 Hour Long RWBY Video Essay

    Big Top Burger

    Never Believe It

    We talked about some other stuff too but you can find that yourself

    16: DUNC

    HEY BITCH! BET YOU THOUGHT YOU'D SEEN THE LAST OF US!


    THE TWO CHANCELLORS OF THE DUNEIVERSITY HAVE AWOKEN FROM THEIR LONG SLEEP TO BARELY DISCUSS A SINGLE CHAPTER OF DUNE! MOSTLY WE TALK ABOUT HOW WE HAVE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST, UH, FIVE MONTHS AND ALSO ABOUT BAD TV WE USED TO WATCH.


    Join us on a journey of heavy-handed political machinations, genocidal plotting, and over-explanations, eh? Also we watch the trailer for the DUNE MOVIE, introduce two NEW SEGMENTS, and go on flights of fancy about being a HEDGEHOG who makes clothes for Timothee Chalemet, who is only ONE INCH TALL.


    We're anti-podcasting the heck out of this one, so if you appreciate bad ear experiences, including technical difficulties, a 9 minute cold open, and abrupt musical choices, you're welcome.


    What do I say at the end of these? Oh yeah, you can email us at duneiversity@gmail.com!
    Visit narutohead.band for another podcast that Ray is on, and check out Let's Get Weirding for a podcast where they actually talk about Dune! Thank's.

    15: WE LOVE THE TUBE

    WE ZAGGED ON YOU!!!! We did this by not releasing any episodes for another month, but you have probably come to expect this by now. What's up.


    WILL PAUL EVER CALM DOWN? WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO 'SNICK'? HEY UH, DID, UM, DID DUNCAN IDAHO JUST DIE? HOW TO PRONOUNCE PLANETOLOGIST? THESE ARE ALL QUESTIONS THAT WE RESOLUTELY DO NOT ANSWER, IN DUNEIVERSITY!


    In this episode, we recognise the fact that we have eyes, we go back to poetry school, we talk lots of irrelevant nonsense about our lives, and we only read one chapter. We also venture into a different kind of pickup artistry, establish a well known and beloved catchphrase to be used to many episodes to come, and we ľ̸̢̧̢̡̨̺͚̟̰̤͙̫̃̈́̄͒̈́͒̽̅͆̾̎̄̀͆o̶̜̯̪͑͋͌̇̍̉̂́̿̎̚v̷̨̠̱͍̗̯͉͍̜̦̮̼̈́̽e̸̜͉͔͉͍̟̒̽ ̴̝͖͖̺͓̳͙̖̗͎͍̟̓̍͒̐̓͑̈̋̀͊t̶̡̨̬̱̩̞̘̲̹͉̅̑̉̀̔̾͐̊̈́̚h̶̨̢͚̙̘̟͇͚͇̫̼͗̓́̃̀̄͋͊e̶̱̙̫͇̰͙͔͇̤͛̈́͐̓̋̒̕̕͠͝ͅ ̷̳̬̥̒̐̾́̽̓͗͜͝t̷̪̣̺͈̗̹̯̺͎̩̩͈͒̓͌͂̕ͅų̷̛̖͓̱͉̫͑̏̊̾̒̈͝b̶̳͖̺̋͛͝ͅē̸̡̧̨̟̟̰͖̩̪̥̺͉̥̖͜.

    14: Jessica Become Gregnant???

    14: Jessica Become Gregnant???

    And they don't stop coming...


    DOES JESSICA IS GREGNANT? WHAT HAPPENED TO DUNE VOICE? DO WE LIKE VELVET WORMS, OR DO WE NOT? DOES THIS SEXY FREMEN MAN HAVE A NAME? IS THUFIR HAWAT? A PIECE OF SHIT? AND FELLAS??? IS IT GAY? TO SPIT IN A BAT'S MOUTH?


    Welcome scholars to the 14th episode of Duneiveristy, in which we don't answer any of these questions, but we do have a wonderful brain genius guest, Sarah! On this be-guested episode, we drink our own nasty body water, sing songs, and are beautifully serenaded by the flute. We learn that cum is stored in the head, pay homage to the only movie that exists, and have a lot of fun learning terrible things through a DUNE QUIZ kindly provided by our favourite guy Dr Tim!


    If you'd like to join the VolCel sibling-hood, please email us at Duneiversity@gmail.com. You can find Sarah's wonderful Yu-Gi-Oh podcast Pod of Greed on Itunes, Spotify or your app of choice! You can find Sarah on Twitter @Sarahmccostumes.

    13: THE UNLUCKY EPISODE- featuring Worm Apocalypse

    13: THE UNLUCKY EPISODE- featuring Worm Apocalypse

    UH OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    GUESS WHO'S GRIEVING! GUESS WHO'S AWAKENED TO HIS PSYCHIC POWERS! GUESS WHO IS MEAN TO HIS MOTHER!


    That's right it's Paul Atreides! This episode, our foreheads split apart as our third eyes open, casting a ray of sight into the golden path of destiny, untangling the spaghetti web of future possibilities. That's right pals. We get woke. This episode, we ask the important questions- are em-dashes gauche? Is Paul BBC Sherlock? Is Paul Woke? Who is the dog who is a sword? What's the most visually powerful worm themed yugioh card? Is Paul a short king? I also wrote in my notes that we have some Extremely Important News, but I can't remember what it is!


    We hope you enjoy this highly depressive episode haunted by the specter of climate panic, where we do our best despite it all, to have a fun time and talk about grief.


    If you have any grand revelations of the universe and its manifold futures and you would like to convey them to us, please email us at duneiversity@gmail.com !

i before e, except in Duneiversity

This is an exceptionally good podcast, mostly about Dune. You also learn stuff about worms, both fictional and real. 10/10 stars.

magicalgirlkyra ,

Perhaps, the most perfect of podcasts

Duneiversity has done something many have said impossible. It has made engaging with Dune not just tolerable, but pleasant.

Do I understand anything that's going on in that book? No.

Do I eagerly await each new episode anyways? Yes!

Listen in and let them read Dune so you don't have to. They make sure to highlight all the gems hidden within the story while calling out all the rubbish as well.
