A NEW Kind of Tolkien Podcast with Wonderful Dynamics!

There are plenty of Tolkien podcasts out there, but it's exciting to see one intentionally delving into the wonderful lesser-known writings of the corpus. The dynamic between the hosts is perfect: both are knowledgeable in their own ways, but each certainly contributes something unique to the conversation. I'm always excited to see another episode come out!

An accessible, entertaining look at Tolkien

This show is entertaining in a way that I wasn't sure I'd get out of a podcast about the works of Tolkien. The hosts are a perfect duo of knowledge and humor that bring both a scholarly and a relatable perspective to the material. I don't see myself digging into the obscure corners of Tolkien's writings myself, but I love hearing about all the wonderfully strange and interesting things to be found there. Definitely check it out!

Fun and Informative!

I’m a fan of the Lord of the Rings movies, but always found Tolkien’s writings to be too dry. This show does an awesome job of making the deeper, history stuff accessible and interesting! I really like the hosts’ dynamic together, and the humor they bring! I can’t wait for more! (Also, they are responsible for putting the image of Sauron in a tankini in my head, which is something I don’t think I will ever be rid of!)
