About This Episode
To celebrate our first ‘Tolkien Reading Day’ as a podcast, we each chose a favourite poem from Tolkien to read. Grace selected ‘The Mewlips’ (1962), Alicia chose ‘Progress in Bimble Town’ (1931), and Leah’s pick was ‘Errantry’ (1933).
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...
We discuss the landscape of Queer and Intersectional Tolkien studies and what these important and fresh outlooks can contribute to Tolkien scholarship.
Help us mark our first birthday with a bit of reflection as Tim asks a few questions about their experience thus far.
