My absolute favourite podcast, and no danger of it ending any time soon!

Recoded under water?

Tried listening to a couple of episodes. Two people talk about whether their microphones work, whilst accompanied by a hiss.

Exploring Lord of the Rings

An incredible podcast! So much interesting detail for any Tolkien fan. Professor Olsen is extremely knowledgeable and manages to involve the listeners - whether they be experts themselves or new to Tolkien.
