Lord of the Rings book cover

75 episodes and 100+ hours of listening! From 2015 – 2018, we covered the greatest novel of the 20th century in its entirety in chapter-by-chapter fashion, including the Appendices as well as Peter Jackson’s films based on the novel. Join our discussion and get lost in Middle-earth along with us!

The Hobbit book cover

Join us as we go there and back again with Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves on their quest to defeat the dragon Smaug, restore the kingdom of Erebor, and get fabulously rich in the process! We covered the entire book in chapter-by-chapter fashion, as well as Peter Jackson’s Hobbit film trilogy, the classic 70’s animated film, and a number of Hobbit “mathoms” such as the Quest of Erebor from Unfinished Tales.

The Silmarillion book cover

In the beginning, there was The Silmarillion! We’ve covered the entirety of Tolkien’s Middle-earth “Old Testament” in chapter-by-chapter fashion, from “Ainulindalë” to “The Darkening of Valinor” to “Beren and Lüthien” to Eärendil and the “War of Wrath”. Oh yeah, and the story of Númenor’s downfall with “Akallabêth” as well. Whether you’ve read it before or not, if you’re a Tolkien fan, you won’t want to miss this!
