On the first episode of the Talking Tolkien podcast, co-hosts John & Greta Carswell provide an introduction to J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion and introduce some of the many themes they will be covering as they move through The Silmarillion chapter-by-chapter over the next several episodes. Come get lost in Middle-earth and explore the history of The Hobbit‘s world!
In this episode, we take a close look at the Waldman letter, in which Tolkien explained the broad sweep of the Middle-earth legendarium to a potential publisher.
