Customer Reviews

Great podcast!

I’ve always wanted to read through Tolkien but never had the patience. This is a fun, not-too-serious way to get through the books a chapter at a time. The hosts are smart and seem to know what they’re talking about but they’re also lots of fun and pretty funny.

Great Show

Super fun and intelligent look at the world of Tolkien. I seriously enjoy this show.

Fun and interesting

Good show for anybody wanting to follow Tolkien. I’ve been trying to read the Silmarillion for ages but could never get into it. Now I read it a few chapters at a time then listen to the episode afterward to help me understand what I just read. The style is very conversational so it isn’t boring, and it’s a lot like sitting in on a book club.
