The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Episode 60

Release Date: September 21, 2022

Your hosts discuss a childhood classic, The Hobbit. Turns out, it’s pretty different from Lord of the Rings. They talk a lot about Tolkien and dwarves and how Bilbo is just like you and me (or, Sara and Lilly, at least). They also spend a lot of time defending the Hobbit movie trilogy. The new tv show “Rings of Power” comes up despite good intentions. “Worms” features in this episode’s segment of Worms are Weird.

Big huge thank you to Fellowship! The Musical Parody of Fellowship of the Ring, for use of their song “Happy Birthday Bilbo” as the intro and outro to this episode.
