Fantastic

Come for the Tolkien and stay for Lane and Ez. Travel through the adventure; bats, dark riders, and more. Enjoy the laughter, the sniffing, the beer in the throat. These guys are awesome and they bring their genuine selves, which is more than can be expected. I found this Podcast during a difficult time in my life and their joy and positivity mixed with the wonder and glory of Lord of the Rings truly carried me through the darkest of days. Take a listen and enjoy and bring a positive and open attitude to this truly great Podcast.

Just Awesome!!

I found your podcast when I googled best Lord Of The Rings podcast and this one came up and I have not been disappointed. I love your reviews of the shows and tie ins with the books. I am not as informed on the books since I have only read the fellowship years ago. You have inspired me to dive into the realm of LOTR. Thank you for what you do and keep up the awesome work.
