Excellent community! Not for the faint of heart!
This is a podcast for the extreme Tolkien fan or the insomniac! If you are looking for a community of like minded LoTR nerds who enjoy deep dives and literary analysis, word etymology, alliteration, medieval history, rabbit trails, and tangents, you SHALL PASS! Once you’ve binged the near decade worth of broadcasts, you, like the Nine Walkers, are invested in a quest to see it through to Mt Doom, or as far as you may wish to go. This journey is not for the faint of heart, but if you choose to invest, you will find a community of thoughtful, witty, fun, and friendly fans, who will come to feel like family. Perfect for interesting background conversation listening during daily tasks, or falling asleep at night. This is genuine Tolkien fandom at its finest: people who love Tolkien and talking about Tolkien, no matter how many episodes we spend on Weathertop. Thank you, Dr Olsen, and all the participants who make these broadcasts so much fun.

Great podcast but the host always clicking his tongue between sentences and saying ummm every couple sets me on edge so unfortunately I can’t continue to listen after 2 episodes I was ready to break my phone lol keep up the good podcast I’ll try again from time to time to listen as long as I can.

The instructor’s repetitive lip smacking & “ums” is really distracting
