Season 1: Dune
My name is Thomas. I’m fifteen years old and this is my podcast about movies, books, and TV with my mom, Jennifer. This season we’re talking about the book, Dune, by Frank Herbert, as we anticipate the new movie coming out in October 2021. Each week we’ll unpack a new chapter together on Paul’s coming of age journey. After all, he’s fifteen years old, just like me. So grab the book, subscribe, and read along with us on season one of The Mama Media Podcast.
