N.Y.N.E.R. (Not Your Normal Entertainment Review) Noah Berlatsky can dish it, but can't take it.

The Alex Kirsch Project

I read an article written by Noah Berlatsky on Dune, and how Paul Atreides is the Ultimate Mighty Whitey. Completely ridiculous. I initially wanted to talk to him on the issue. Instead he is a critic who won't take criticism and instead of engaging in me, he called me a name. So now I am going to talk about how wrong his article is, and how he isn't expressing an opinion, but a statement of fact on his point of view. Here's the article if you're interested. https://www.escapistmagazine.com/v2/dunes-paul-atreides-is-the-ultimate-mighty-whitey/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
