A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0007 – The Silmarillion – Ch03 – Of the Coming of the Elves and the Captivity of Melkor

Where did the Elves come from and what is their doom? What should the Valar do about Melkor? We explore these questions and more in our discussion of the 3rd chapter of The Silmarillion proper, Of the Coming of the Elves and the Captivity of Melkor. Come get lost in Middle-earth and explore the history of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings!
