Exceptional, passionate analysis

If you call yourself a Tolkien fan, don't miss out on Alastair's gift to brink you deeper into the world of Middle-Earth with insight, humour, and charm. I have read LOTR annually for 20 years and this podcast has given me an even greater appreciation for this magnificent book. I look forward to each episode!

A great way to spend your time

So loving this podcast! It feels like a mix of the best undergrad lit class and a lengthy, pithy argument in the pub afterwards.
