Dune Cast #3.1: Children of Dune (1976)

by Dune Cast

Children of Dune is so intense that we had to break our discussion into two parts.

Distrans message incoming from planet Arrakis: Dune Cast #3.1, discussing the first part of Children of Dune, is here!

Children of Dune is a monumental work of science fiction – so much so that after two hours we had only covered the first part of Frank Herbert’s masterpiece! In this episode, Joe and Rod get into the motives and the implications within Children of Dune, and start to set up the phenomenal events to come in this story.

This is the Dune Cast.

Next Month

Next month we’re covering God Emperor of Dune! To get the audiobook for free, just go to http://www.audibletrial.com/dunecast.


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 also how important Dune is! Read along with us, listen to the podcast, and turn a new person on to the books and the podcast!
