An inebriated exploration of Frank Herbert's Dune. Join our hosts Mike and Derek each week as they open a new bottle of wine and have a bit of a buzzed book club.

Never read Dune? No worries, neither has Mike.

Whether you are new to Dune, or you already know how to wear your stillsuit desert style; this podcast has something to offer.

Pulling from the long out of print, Dune Encyclopedia, we can tell you stories such as: Who was Holtzman? What is it like on a Guild spaceship? How did the Baron come to power?

We will be revealing some spoilers along the way, but Derek promises not to ruin any great twists in the book. After all this is Mike’s first time reading the book, and part of the fun is letting this world and its mysteries grow around you.

    Dune - Chapter 46

    We are staring down an oil lens at the end of the book. Paul had gathered everyone, fremen and sandworm alike, along the shield wall for one last battle. When the storm hit, Paul left his mark on the shield wall and history. The day of maximum struggle. Everyone begins to make their way down, and we see Paul stop by the radio operator. By the look on his face and the muffled words from the speaker, we know it's all bad news...

    Dune - Chapter 45

    Detective Chani arrives in style because she's allowed to use a thopter. We meet her with Otheym and get her caught up on the last thirty days. Inside, Jessica makes Chani jump through some formalities for no real reason before we get to Paul. Chani solves the problem in about the same amount of time that Jessica wasted. Paul steals the scene when he wakes up though; the Kwisatz Haderach has arrived. We eavesdrop with Otheym at the doorway and hear Paul’s plan...
    -Oh I get it, Cave of Birds
    -Melange Spicebeard is still here
    -Otheym son of...Uliet!
    -We relax in some Axolotl tanks for our trip to the stars

BEST Dune pod!!

Seriously the most educational and entertaining Dune read along pod ever! I have been blowing through these episodes and hope you continue to book 2! Take care xo

Great read along

Great podcast! They helped me get through the beginning of the first book which is a little overwhelming.

Not bad

It’s an enjoyable podcast, though it’s not really feasible to follow along with them as you read the book, as the episodes are two hours long! Even with short chapters, the discussions can go on for a long time, which feels rather burdensome to keep up with. You get the impression that these guys are really good friends, which is lovely, but I think this podcast feels a bit unrelatable at times. Also, the ear-splitting laughs can be a little annoying at times. I enjoy the podcast, but some slimming down would be appreciated.
