Customer Reviews

This podcast is...wonderful!!

The utter passion and excitement Vasilios has for the subject is absolutely contagious! Whether a Tolkien fanatic or not, one can truly appreciate his extensive knowledge, careful thought, poingnant remarks, and—most of all—deep love for the content. Pulling out themes, qualities in different characters, and more, he presents it all in a way that speaks to our own life, and we walk away having gained something other than facts.


I’m a big fan of the LOTR movies but never had a desire to read the books until this podcast.
Vasilios reminds me of the coolest teacher in my high school, whose eyes lit up with passion no matter what topic he was teaching. His enthusiasm for Tolkien is infectious, as I now have the desire to dive into all the written works to see what I’m missing. A great listen. Love the Hobbit Hole!

A Very Personal Journey into Tolkien

With a faithfulness to both author and universe that would rival that of Gimli to his fellowship, Vasilios dives into the deep mythology of Tolkien, while exploring much of his own.
Referencing landmarks in his own life the host trudges on with the earnest of Frodo and the adventurous spirit of Legolas.
One does not need the wisdom of Gandalf to see the wealth of potential within him and the quest he's chosen for himself. Great job, great pod!
