Bonus Episode

Release Date: Nov 10 2021


Dune by Frank Herbert



This entire episode contains spoilers!

Your hosts are joined by Connor Caplan to discuss the various adaptations of Dune through the years, including the 1984 movie, 2000 mini-series, and 2021 movie (one of two). They compare main characters, or more specifically, if there even is one, as well as the depiction of Bene Gesserits and whether they are evil, scheming, conniving witches (hint: they shouldn’t be). This episode also includes a Words are Weird segment courtesy of Herbert. “Sphincter” might be a real word, but we all know it means butts.
