Don't you put a shitload of work into this forum?
All you'd need is a couple hundred dollar mic set-up. (If you're worried about costs I know a couple podcasters who have setups that work very well but did not cost them much at all - (Dylan Schuck @schuckster on Twitter) - and ask him how he does it on a shoestring budget. But Nekhrun, I would wager, would know exactly how to set this up.
Be in a room with blankets to deaden the sound. It can also be done remotely from two different locations.
2 guys to break down the first Dune book, in one hour segments.
The subject matter may seem obvious to to you, but your audience is the person who's only read the book once or twice, or is in the midst of reading it. Or someone like me, who doesn't have a very in-depth understanding or memory of the books in comparison to you guys, and hasn't read them in a while, but would like to revisit them.
Talk about all of the great ideas and the depth of the characters, the implied backstories, (without spoiling the next episodes).
Do all of the real Dune books first, and make references to the Dune Encyclopedia.
I think people would love it.
Your costs are your hosting fees and bandwidth. Put it on Sticher and eventually get it on iTunes. It wouldn't be that hard to do.

I stand corrected. This is an amazing idea.
