The World’s Most Popular Inaccurate And Sometimes Squirreled Retelling Of Pop Culture History Podcast

 

JRR Tolkien sat down and wrote a book. A big book. A really big book. And then he wrote another big book and a third big book. These series of books would change the fantasy genre for all time, bringing it to the fore front of pop culture. Today we learn where Tolkien would get his inspiration from, and also how to properly say Tolkien. And not only do we tackle the book, but we also talk about the Peter Jackson film trilogy, and the animated version of The Hobbit.  Explicit Language thanks to Faraz.
