Dune. Arrakis. Desert planet.

With the premiere of the Villeneuve Dune just around the corner, Two Nerds have decided to revisit all things Frank Herbert. This first outing is a discussion of the book Dune and Frank Herbert’s work more generally. We touch on the Dune series, God Emperor more specifically, and The Dosadi Experiment. We also discuss Herbert’s complicated legacy: One of the reasons we both love Dune is because of Herbert’s takes on religion, ecology, and politics, while acknowledging his works may not resonate because of misogyny, fat-phobia, and homophobia.
