The Last Podcast on The Left is known for covering serial killers, cryptids, crimes, the occult, and other horrifying topics.
However, this flagship podcast is just one of many to be found on the Last Podcast Network. Among these other podcast offerings is a hilarious, crude, and incredibly insightful deep-dive on Frank Herbert’s Dune series. And if you've just watched the new Dune movie, and are craving more Arrakis content, this should be your next listen.

Last Podcast on the Left co-host Henry Zebrowski, along with his friend and co-host Holden McNeely, spend 12 episodes discussing the plots, themes, mythos, and history surrounding the Dune book series. They don’t steer away from the more controversial topics found within the Dune books, nor do they shy away from demystifying the author.
If you’re a novice to the Dune universe, this podcast will introduce you to main plot points across the books, as well as expand on the motifs found throughout. If you’re fully immersed in the Dune-iverse, it’s like kicking back with two good friends and discussing the finer points of Frank Herbert’s expansive universe. Every episode ends with an edition of Dune Theater, spoofing a scene or what was discussed over the course of the episode.

Henry and Holden spend over 15 hours breaking down the motivations of the Bene Gesserit, the Houses of the Landsraad, the Fremen, and the Kwisatz Haderach—and that’s just the beginning.
The podcast is set to return for another episode to discuss Dennis Villenueve's 2021 adaptation of Dune.
