Before the Rings of Power, there were the Silmarils. Before Sauron, there was his master Morgoth. Before Aragorn and Arwen, there was Beren and Lúthien. Join Jonathan Watson, Michael Grumbine, and Dan Coats as they explore all the ages of Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
Jonathan, Michael, and Dan first met while co-hosting The Babylon Bee’s Lord of the Rings podcast that read through Tolkien’s masterpiece from 2020 to 2022.
