In-depth readings

Dr. Olsen is a joy to listen to and study with. You’ll get more out of a book than you ever imagined possible. There’s a whole community of people who are as passionate about speculative fiction as I am, and it’s so cool.

Excellent Content

This is a great podcast! It’s taken from a series of discussions/lectures by Mythgard Institute regarding classic works of science fiction and fantasy novels. The lecturer, Dr. Corey Olsen, is thoughtful, articulate, passionate and very familiar with the material. These are University level analyses of literature available for free. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in “The Lord of the Rings,” “Dune,” and other related works.

Infrequently uploaded

The content is first rate, but although podcasts are apparently recorded weekly, they are only uploaded to iTunes about once a month, so if you subscribe you get 6-8 two hour episodes all at once.

It’s too much to listen to all st once, and they take up a lot of space on your phone and clog up your podcast queues and it’s not worth the bother. It would be better if they could be uploaded more frequently.
