A *very* serious bookclub hosted by two friends who certainly haven’t been called the giggle twins before. Join them as they read the seminal sci-fi novel Dune for the first time! Will they like it? Will they even finish it? What is a Kwisatz Haderach? And will they ever stop laughing?

Stats: Statistics are produced by Soundcloud and Podtrac to help Very Serious Book Club to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and useragent is used to help calculate this figure. Podtrac is IAB v2 certified.

Very Serious Book Club is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

This uses an insecure connection. This podcast uses an HTTP, not HTTPS, address for its RSS feed and its audio files. These are not encrypted, and may allow people who can see your internet traffic - like your internet service provider, employer or even your government - to know that you listen to this podcast.

Here’s more about insecure links and unique domains.

Information for podcasters

Technical advice
Podfade warning: this podcast has not been updated in the past three months.
Podcast episode titles seem to include episode numbers, which is against Apple Podcasts guidelines and makes it harder to listen to your podcast on smart speakers. Here is what Apple wants to do, and why.
The audio of this podcast has an HTTP address, and not HTTPS. If it isn’t also available as HTTPS, it is no longer playable in any embedded player on an HTTPS site in Google Chrome.
This podcast’s RSS feed is not secure. Apple may require this in future.
This podcast’s audio is not on an IPv6-enabled domain. This isn’t an issue for now, but might be in future. (We tested the initial domain of dts.podtrac.com, which may be an analytics prefix.)

Directories
This podcast appears to be missing from Spotify, Stitcher, iVoox, Luminary, and iHeartRadio. We list all the podcast directories to be in.

Tools
