Episode 71 - Haldir

Episode 70 - The United States of Isengard
Fantasy helps us to make sense of a chaotic reality, and Sam shows us how Lord of the Rings can help us make sense of the protests and know how to be on the side of good.
When the Ents marched on Isengard, Gandalf checked his privilege and didn't stand with Sarumon.
Episode 69 - We are all Gimli
We are all Gimli, and that’s a good thing.
Episode 68 - But They Were All of Them Deceived
Sam talks about consequences for our actions and what to do about a second wave of troubles.
Her knowledge of the extended trilogy’s special features would be concerning if she wasn’t putting it to such delightful use. Always has a great angle with which to approach tough questions, and always with the heart that only a hobbit gardener could have.
