This week we have an AWKWARD family reunion as Jessica and Gurney return to Arrakis. Alia might be off the rails but at least Irulan still looks sexy? Meanwhile, Leto makes Ghani listen to his emo baliset playing while he shares some pretty major revelations about himself and the ecology of Dune. Join us!
High quality podcast
I was recommended this show because I was looking for a Dune podcast that was simultaneously insightful, entertaining, and that didn’t acknowledge the Brian Herbert fanfics. I have not been disappointed.
I’ve tried listening to several podcasts about Dune and this is by far the best. The hosts are funny and charismatic, and as I don’t know to many people like that in my real life it’s a real treat when they put out a new episode.
Hopefully they continue the show through at least the original series, I can not wait to hear what they have to say about the last couple of books.
Making my reading experience even more fun!
I’m having a blast reading along with you ladies and hearing your thoughts on the book (and many other things!) after each chapter. I’m looking forward to continuing to listen and tackling the sequels for the first time!
