Joining our spicy all-in-the-family episode this month are substitute co-host Fran Hoepfner and special guest Sarah Welch-Larson! Listen in as Sarah, a long-time Dune-thusiast, absolutely schools us on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two (2024). We get into: the finer points of adapting Frank Herbert, how all the Bene Gesserit are sexy, space gravity, Rebecca Ferguson’s jaw, the secularization of Chani, are thumpers biodegradable, and more. Special shout-outs to Sarah’s prescient piece on Dune (2021) and Max Read’s encyclopedic annotation of Part Two.
