In the last month or two, we dropped our monumental episode on Frank Herbert. With DUNE resurrecting the blockbuster genre, we saw fit to excavate the life of its author, a humble Irish kid from the middle of nowhere who redefined science fiction through sheer force of will—and a White Witch by his side. In our bonus After Dark episode, a Patreon exclusive, we talked Frank Herbert’s role in the psychedelic community and eviscerated our favorite bad #DUNE takes.
October was a banger month at Art of Darkness. And we deeply appreciate all the support shown by our Patrons who are helping us improve the show day by day. If you haven’t signed up yet, just $3 a month gets you access to After Dark—20-30 minute bonus episodes we record after every free conversation where we riff, talk research, debrief, and share the single juiciest tidbit we came across while preparing.
