The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0053 – The Silmarillion – Ch21 – Of Túrin Turambar – Pt1

Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien. On this episode, we begin our discussion of Chapter 21 of The Silmarillion, “Of Túrin Turambar”. The tale of Túrin is a long one, so it’s definitely going to take more than one episode to cover. It’s also quite tragic and sad, so make sure you’ve got a box of tissues nearby. Speaking of tragedies, it would certainly be tragic if you missed this opportunity to leave The Tolkien Road a rating and feedback on iTunes. It’s easy to do, only takes a moment, and is the best way to show your appreciation for what we’re doing here. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
