33 - FOTR Part 9 - Caradhras - with Luke Shelton

April 29, 2022

"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."

Today we go mountain climbing with Luke Shelton from the Tolkien Experience Podcast as we discuss 1:45:38 - 1:57:00 of the Fellowship of the Ring (Extended Edition). The Fellowship sets out from Rivendell, tries to escape Crebain from Dunland by climbing the world's angriest mountain, and Gandalf has a shouting match with Saruman. We are also joined by resident musical expert Jordan Rannells to talk about the Fellowship Theme.

28 - SPOILERS - Vanity Fair’s First Look at LOTRROP

February 12, 2022

When it rains, it pours! Amazon has opened the floodgates on promotional materials for The Rings of Power, and we are eating it up. Today we talk about Vanity Fair's article offering a first look at the series: "Amazon's Lord of the Rings Series Rises: Inside The Rings of Power." In the process, we talk about some questions that apparently have whipped the fandom into a tizzy: (1) Do female dwarves have beards? (2) Do elves have long hair? And (3) Do elves have pointy ears?

26 - SPOILERS - 23 Posters to Rule Them All

February 5, 2022

Barely a week has gone by and already we have more promotional material from Amazon. This time, they gave us 23 full color character posters. In each poster the subject is holding something in their hands, but we don't see their face, so they gave us plenty to chew on while leaving a lot to the imagination. Michael and Jen discuss each poster and provide translations and explanations for the iconography they reveal.
