Episode 94: Dune

November 9, 2021

In the wake of Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune, Sunday Morning Matinee joins the conversation about the value of this story and its power in a new age. As the source of so many sci-fi and fantasy tropes, this movie is hard to talk about independent of all that came after. So in the first segment, pastor Casey Thompson joins the conversation to talk about myth, influence, and ideas of leadership in a broken world. In the second segment, the group discusses how Dune might help us understand the lectionary texts for November 14. Finally, Matt talks about children's lit and Adam reflects on a synth chord from an old Radiohead album.

Do you know what a Gom Jabbar is? What about the Bene Gesseret? No matter, all will be revealed on this week's Sunday Morning Matinee.
