So much richer having read Dune series with the book club

Amazing!! This podcast has me hooked! Thank you.

Extremely informative - highly recommend!

I don’t feel so alone tackling the Dune universe with this podcast and I am able to glean much more depth from the pages than if I were reading alone. Thank you Abu and Leo for all of your time and dedication. Their spoiler warnings are always accurate and never give away or allude to spoiler material which is greatly appreciated. Some of the content when they go a little off-script with their school boy level humor may have you rolling your eyes at times, but their insight and perspective of the dune lore is so valuable for first time readers and long-time fans. You can tell they love what they’re doing and are very good at it. I applaud the book club episodes, especially how they slowed down for dune messiah and really break down the episodes and deep dive into the take-always. I highly recommend this podcast for established or aspiring dune fans.

Informative but too many jokes

Leo and Abu have an immense understanding of the Dune universe, and when they share their differing perspectives it’s gets very interesting to how each idea connects to a wider part of the story. I’ve read the Dune books and know what they’re saying is spot on.

But their excessive forced joking and fake laughter really takes away from the experience.

Get to the point.

In the episodes I’ve listened to, they discuss how much time it could take them to cover some topics. They can easily save 15 minutes to cover other info or shorten the episode. I’m unable to listen to a single episode in one setting because of how they digress to joke. It’s irritating.

Some jokes and banter is good but it cannot be central to their storytelling approach.

I intend to continue to listen to them in the hope that similar feedback has reached them and they’ve evolved as a podcast duo. Only time will tell.
