An Unexpected Podcast: Talkin’ Tolkien


Welcome to “An Unexpected Podcast: Talkin’ Tolkien”. We invite you to join us in an adventure as Ezra and Lane delve deep into Middle Earth. Each fortnight we will gather for a book re-read, show speculation, and much more! So grab your book, a highlighter, cup of coffee, and keep a pocket-handkerchief close at hand. Remember, “Not all those who wander are lost” and we intend to let our imagination wander far and wide. Speak “Friend” and ENTER!!!

“Mutton, what’s up with you?!” ~ We move from Hobbits to Trolls as we dive into The Hobbit Chapter 2 Roast Mutton? Take a listen as we tell you all about them! We are excited to have you along for another adventure!!! Don’t forget your pocket handkerchief ~

The Bywater Post: please send your “Tolkien Stories” to We will read and share those on the podcast! Also; if you enjoy singing, send us an audio clip of you singing one of the songs in our story! We’d love to play it on the podcast.
