Unprofessional, unoriginal, self indulgent
I really wanted to enjoy this podcast/live chat, but it wasn’t possible.
First off, there’s the issue of professionalism, or lack thereof. The classes are late or cancelled regularly, and technical issues were rampant (why not test your setup on your own time? Considering this creator is Patreon-supported that extra prep would be appropriate).
The conversation in the chats was always a good time, but the content was very beginner-level despite advertising as “expert” and little was said that hasn’t been said a few times over by many before. Very self indulgent, fluffy, and a bit of a bore, this host seemed to ignore every question asked despite choosing a seminar format for discussion, using it more as a way to find people who agree with him. Would not recommend.
Very Fun and Very Informative
I love this podcast! I look forward to every new episode. They do a great job researching and explaining everything middle earth related. In addition the hosts are fun to listen too and the over all quality is pretty professional. If you are a Tolkien fan like me I highly recommend this podcast!
