I wanted to enjoy it. The segments are too long. 7 minutes in and they still haven't started actually discussing The Hobbit on that episode. Also one of them always talks over the other making it difficult to hear. And the ads!

Totally awesome podcast with some of the funniest hosts! They might have a penchant for musty musical references and dusty dry humour but man, this is a must if you are slightly interested in Tolkien. 👍

Amazing.

Description

The Prancing Pony Podcast is a weekly show about the Middle-earth legendarium of J.R.R. Tolkien, hosted - for six seasons - by Alan Sisto and Shawn E. Marchese. As the show returns for its seventh season, Alan welcomes an all-star cast of co-hosts to join him as he explores the first part of The Return of the King!

Alan and all his co-hosts are passionate Tolkien enthusiasts, and they invite listeners to enjoy their detailed exploration of Tolkien’s work, with smart but straightforward discussion and a healthy dose of self-effacing humor, pop-culture references, and bad puns. These are the folks you'd want to hang out with at a pub and talk Tolkien with.
