Dune Cast #2: Dune Messiah (1969)

by Dune Cast

We explore Dune Messiah, which explores what happens after the good guy wins.

Distrans message incoming from planet Arrakis: Dune Cast #2, discussing Dune Messiah, is here!

The year 1969 was the summer of love. However, on the planet Arrakis, more commonly known as Dune, Emperor Paul Atreides reign was coming to an end. Join us to discuss the shortest Dune novel, but perhaps the most important to the greater Dune saga.

Dune Messiah is an achievement of science fiction, of world-building, and of escaping the norms for a road less traveled and a story more creative. This is the Dune Cast.

Next Month

Email the show: dunecast@retrozap.com. We are trying to do more than just talk about a book once a month. We hope this podcast will inspire you to read more of the amazing work of Frank Herbert and start more conversations in today’s fandom. Dune is an essential piece of the fabric of today’s pop culture, and there are as many fans as there are Fremen: untold numbers by all accounting!

Thank you so much for all the support since the announcement of the show. Let’s show the world how many of us there are, and how important Dune is! Read along with us, listen to the podcast, and turn a new person on to the books and the podcast!
