The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0268 » The Goblin Wars!!!

Have you ever heard of Tolkien’s GOBLIN WARS? (HINT: you won’t find them in the Middle-earth legendarium).  

These are the stories of Goblins invading the North Pole and stealing gifts intended for the children of England from Father Christmas’ cellar. Join us as we explore how the “Other Fellowship” of Father Nicholas Christmas, the North Polar Bear, the Red Gnomes, and others join forces to save Christmas!
