Rekindled my love for this incredible book and by the end of the first episode I’ve become hooked

I first read The Hobbit about 12 years ago and it immediately became my favorite book. Secrets of The Hobbit has not only rekindled my love for this amazing tale but it constantly makes me want to go back and reread the book over and over again. The crew does a fantastic job of getting the listeners hyped up and ready for Peter Jackson's movies. Mixing humor with facts and some speculation from time to time they break down the latest and greatest news about The Hobbit and deliver a truly awesome podcast. Keep up the awesome job guys!

Attention to details

The very least you could have done is to know the names of the characters in the story of which you speak about. Your speculations are so atrocious that I'm embarrassed for you. I can't say you know nothing of which you speak about but much more research could have gone into this which is too bad because I started off liking your pace and banter. Overall not a bad attempt but need more attention to details.

A Hobbit fan's must listen!

I truly love listening to all the Hobbit (and even LOTR) talk, getting the newest information about the movies, and behind the scenes. A great podcast, looking forward to each and every new episode!
