The tale of Túrin Turambar is one of the great stories of Middle-earth — Tolkien even mentions it in 1951 as a possible publication after finishing Lord of the Rings. But it’s COMPLETELY different… Túrin isn’t really a hero–he makes bad decisions and runs from them. He refuses forgiveness. He ignores wise advice.

Join Jonathan, Michael, and Dan as they discuss this tragic counterpoint to Beren and Luthién–a tale of woe, sorrow, grief, death, and not much of a happy ending.

Don’t forget to join us in our extended episode where we discuss why this is Jonathan’s favorite (non-LOTR) Tolkien story too! To get the extended episode, become a member at ($4/mo and free for the 1st month)!
