I love this podcast! Still catching up on the series, but it’s too good to rush through the episodes. I blame/thank you folk for drawing me into the LOTRO world. I love a good book in my hand, but when you need more Middle Earth, this hits the spot!
Thank you and God bless!

A podcast of special magnificence!

These guys really enjoy Tolkien’s Middle-Earth world and having already read The Fellowship of the Ring, it has been so much fun revisiting the chapters they discuss in the book, as well as discovering things and hearing perspectives that I didn’t think of. That’s what I’ve enjoyed most. It’s a fun and relaxing listen and has made mowing my yard much more bearable while I listen. If you enjoy The Lord of The Rings and talking about it, then these are your podcast homies. Please keep them coming and I look forward to the next books.
