The Love for The Lord of the Rings

Hi guys, special thanks for delivering fantastic commentary and discussion on all matters of The Lord of the Rings. I am still early into the episodes and would like to let you know in difficult times such as this - you make my day a little better from listening to your podcast. I would like add if you would consider doing episodes on major events from the lore or character focus episodes?

Listen people! The Lord of the Rings lives on!

Truly incredible.

You guys genuinely saved my life. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I discovered this podcast in one of the darkest moments in my life, desperate to look for something to hold onto. In a daze I started listening and just ... connected. The way you guys make me feel included and just ... not alone is really a credit to your characters and I am eternally grateful for it. You took my mind away from the things and gave me something I enjoyed doing (picking apart literature and films) in a way that I could do it alongside friends. Truely, thank you.

In depth look into Tolkien’s world

Really enjoying this podcast, starting late! I’m in book one but I’m loving the deep dive into the books. Thanks Lane and Ezra.
