Grab your spacebag and join us for this episode of Bookclub in which we discuss Dune by Frank Herbert. The conversation also covers topics such as the film adaptations of the book and Star Wars. We close it out with round 2 of Is It Kiss Or AC/DC? It’s some pretty raw stuff.

In this episode, the Bookclub discusses the Art of Star War with Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn. Naturally, the discussion finds its way to Star Wars at large. Also, we make an attempt to save local newspapers, we make an impassioned plea to Pauly Shore, and one member of the club literally loses his intestines.

This episode does run a good bit longer than usual, coming in at 2 hours and 30 minutes.
Also, we apologize for the poor audio quality at the beginning. Some doofus was recording with the wrong microphone. It gets better about 10 minutes in.

Will young Jim Hawkins find true love on the seven seas? Will Ansel’s Ohtani collection be enough to win the Fuchsia Badge? Will the club be able to go through an entire episode without resorting to reading KISS lyrics? Is Parmesan cheese truly a cure for baldness? To find the answers to these and other burning questions that consistently chew on the collective millennial subconscious, tune in as Bookclub: The Podcast discusses Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. There will be laughs, and ye may lay to that. Arggggh.

The birds are chirping, the bees are returning in diminished numbers, and Peeps are on sale because they’re disgusting. Let Bookclub warm your heart and bring you springing forth from your winter slumber with a tale of bravery, brotherhood and baseball… and then we have to talk about systemic American racism. We club Jackie Robinson’s I Never Had It Made. Play ball!

In this episode of Bookclub, we take a deep dive into Dr. Seuss’s sex-filled piece of capitalist propaganda entitled One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Did you know Dr. Seuss advocated the enslavement of the denizens of Whoville? It’s true, we swear.

Did you know Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space? Too many people don’t know that fact, and it makes us sad. Anyway, we take a look at Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis in this episode. We cover topics ranging from the American education system to American Family Radio to Wolfenstein 3D. So, basic Bookclub fare. Enjoy!
