Tolkien Would Hate This Podcast Pt 1: Fans, Interpretation, and Adaptation
Alica, Grace, and Leah tackle the criticism that “Tolkien would hate this podcast” for a whole host of reasons: We (and our listeners) are too Queer, too Progressive, not Catholic enough, too ‘woke’, or too willing to accept multiple and even contradictory readings. In this first episode of a series, we talk about Tolkien’s attitudes about his fans, reader interpretation/response to his works, and adaptation.
Episode 17 Talking "Angbang" with Cameron and Mercury Hosts & Guests(she/her) By day: a graphic designer and artist working in the visual and performing arts. By night: a Tolkien fan and scholar currently focused on researching Sauron, his development, his fandom...

Help us mark our first birthday with a bit of reflection as Tim asks a few questions about their experience thus far.
