Made me into a dune head

This podcast is sheer delight. I love the extensive discussion of lore, and most of all the humor and silliness balanced with thoughtfulness and sincerity. Abu and Leo are on the golden path!

Would have only been 4 stars but

the injection of real left-wing politics and the welcome I feel as a brainwashed SJW tips it to 5.

Seriously though, I am really enjoying the Book Club episodes after a recent reread of the first 2 books. I find their perspectives helpful in understanding the story at a deeper level. Looking forward to continuing the Book Club series for the remainder of the books.

p.s. I am also happy the hosts pass on including Brian Herbert’s additions. His works don’t seem to add intrigue or depth to the Dune Universe imho.

The best podcast I’ve ever listened to

I absolutely love everything about this podcast. The amount I laugh while listening to this is just absolutely incredible. It helps me sleep at night and keeps me company during the day. Leo and Abu become like close friends without even knowing them. I’ve never had so much fun learning before. This incredibly complex world becomes so much easier to comprehend with Gom Jabbar. I have and will continue to recommend it to anyone who is remotely interested in the Dune universe.
