Fire the Canon

Time for some Dune analysis, y’all! (For more plot-centric discussion, check out our previous episode Dune: Our Friends the Worms.). We brought on our good friend Jack Morgan, former comedian/current doctor, to discuss his favorite(?) book. If you want to hear us dig in to the meat of the book, this is the episode for you. Jack doxes his own baby. Rachel schedules a guest well in advance. Jackie owns and leans into her hunger. Theo lets out a well-timed Lord of the Rings quote.

Topics include: The Turning of the Screw, The Taming of the Shrew, The Name of the Wind, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, vanishing twins, Reddit nonsense, feminism, Zsa Zsa Hoochie Coochie, GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow’s head, Duncan IdaHos, the Atlanta Braves, the age of Rashida Jones, Orphan (2009), Lord of the Rings quotes, Darth Maul, Star Wars, unironic “what the fuck?!?!?!?!?”s, the fourteenth century, and the JEDI initiative.
