In the mid-70s Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempted to bring Frank Herbert's science fiction novel to the screen. The space opera would have pre-dated Star Wars. Jodorowsky’s ambition was extraordinary. But the movie was never filmed. The documentary’s director Frank Pavich tells Jesse why. Then Jesse talks to Dee Dee Penny, the frontwoman of Dum Dum Girls about turning a small recording project into a full on garage rock girl group. Plus, Matt Fraction tells you about how Bruce Lee taught him to write comics, hear some picks from the folks at NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour, and Jesse tells you about one of the least braggy rap songs ever made.
