A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

Tolkien Reading Day 2024 is upon us, and boy do we have a curve ball for you!

What do Tolkien and Quentin Tarantino have in common? Apparently more than you’d think!

Greta and I watched Tarantino’s 2019 film “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” twice this week, and found some fascinating synchronicities with Tolkien’s own vision of fairy tales from “On Fairy-stories”, including one that has me convinced that Tarantino MUST HAVE read Tolkien when creating the film.

We had a blast discussing Tolkien and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and you will too, so do yourself a favor and join us!
