  1. If Amazon Prime has the rights to The Lord of the Rings, and the Appendices, they should be doing the history of Gondor, the Last Alliance of the of Elves and Men, the Dunedain, Aragorn, and what lead to the line of the kings of Gondor being broken.

  2. Yes, I have just read some articles and an obituary announcing the death of Priscilla, which marks the end of an era. Here are some links to look at.

    “So please forgive me, dear Priscilla,
    If I pretend you rhyme with pillow!”
    ― J.R.R. Tolkien, Letters from Father Christmas

  3. Pray for the repose of Priscilla Tolkien, she was the last direct link to her father and his legacy. This marks the end on an era. And also pray for the Tolkien family. Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord. And let the Perpetual Light shine upon her. Amen.

  4. Hi, I am fifteen years old, homeschooled, and live in Lebanon, TN. I love your podcast and am currently binge listening to all of your episodes. I am on the 80th one. I love Tolkien and always like to expand the knowledge that comes along with it. Thank you so much for doing this! Oh, and by the way, there is a new Tolkien book out called, The Nature of Middle Earth. I read it in four days. It was great and has a lot of backstory into the times and people of Tolkien’s world. I would love it if you would do an episode on it. Once more thanks for an amazing podcast! Yours’ was the first one that I ever listened to and I am going to stick with it!

      1. Thank you so much, Mr. Carswell! It will indeed check them out! I am now 90 episodes into the podcast and loving it as always!
