The ultimate podcast dedicated to Frank Herbert’s Dune Saga, and the Known Universe beyond! This is a podcast beyond your experience, beyond your imagination.

Greetings, travelers of space and time! Know then that this is the ultimate Dune Saga podcast— and will be a monthly series examining all things from the world of Frank Herbert’s legendary Dune universe, including the classic books, movies, miniseries, games, documentaries, and ongoing novels by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson. Whether this is your first foray into the Dune universe or you are returning like a Duncan Idaho ghola, join us for a show beyond your dreams and a podcast beyond your imagination.

The Dune Cast is hosted by avid science fiction fans and podcasters Joe Tavano and Rod Johnson, and is part of the RetroZap Podcast Network. We endeavor to create the most detailed and insightful examinations of every novel, and connect with other fans in the process to create a positive and active community.

Plus, we will look at all film and television adaptations, and present any and all news as this franchise experiences a renaissance with the forthcoming film series by Legendary Entertainment. Led by the groundbreaking, visionary director Denis Villenueve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) and starring Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, you don’t need prescience to realize that this franchise is alive and well, and we are here to talk about everything that has been and will be.
