The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0258 – Defeating Evil » A Middle-earth Guide

In episode 258, we continue our exploration of what Tolkien meant by Lord of the Rings being “fundamentally religious and Catholic” as we explore the connection between Middle-earth mythology and key Christian ideas.  

Also, we’re joined by Michael Jahosky as our guest co-host! You can learn more about all of Michael’s work at  

By the way, I interviewed Michael back in Episode 247 about his book, The Good News of the Return of the King! Definitely check both of those out!
