Insightful and Brilliant!

This Harry Potter and the Sacred Text-inspired podcast does a wonderful job at guiding new (and old) readers into the magical world of Lord of the Rings. The regular podcasters, Rich, Chris, Matt, and Nathan, do an amazing job at close reading the text by talking about language, landscapes, poetry, and all things JRR Tolkien. Special guests also do an amazing job at applying their area of expertise to the trilogy. If you are a huge fan of LoTR, I highly recommend this podcast! Can't wait to finish this journey with them.

Not a big Tolkien Fan, but...

Be patient with the first few episodes, the sound quality isn’t great. I’m more of a Game of Thrones kind of guy but I thought I should know more about Tolkien since he’s so influential. I’ve never read the book but these guys make the content really accessible. They mix their nerdiness with banter and pop-culture references which makes the mid insights all the better. I can recommend it!

I’m impressed

I don’t really do podcasts but my nephew is on here and so I thought I’d give it a shot. Tolkien isn’t really my cup of tea but I’m impressed with their conversations and the production.
