The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

“Leaf By Niggle” with Bellator Colloquium Podcast

Hey there fellow travelers!

I was honored recently to be a guest on The Bellator Colloquium podcast, where we discussed Tolkien’s incredible short story “Leaf By Niggle”. We talked about Leaf back in 2015 on the podcast, but honestly, my understanding of this story has expanded and deepened so much since then. So here’s a sample of my conversation with Bellator, and I’d encourage you to head over to check out their podcast and listen to the whole thing. While you’re at it, you should subscribe to their show and check out some of their other content!
