Announcing the Tolkien Experience Podcast!

Hello everyone,

I can finally tell you the exciting news that we have been working on! Today is the official announcement of the Tolkien Experience Podcast!



I [Luke Shelton] have partnered with The Prancing Pony Podcast and Dr. Sara Brown to put together a podcast that compliments the Tolkien Experience Project! The Prancing Pony Podcast hosts, Alan and Shawn, have been so gracious in teaching me how to be a podcaster (my poor interviewing skills aside) and partnering with me to help promote and support the idea. Sara has been equally gracious in agreeing to co-host the podcast with me!

The Tolkien Experience Podcast (TEP) is an attempt to bring the fan and scholarly communities together around our shared passion: the works of J.R.R. Tolkien! Each episode features a notable scholar or member of the fan community sharing their responses to the original Tolkien Experience Project questions.

The official page for the Podcast is up now!

Our first episode will release on The Professor’s birthday: 3 January 2020.

New episodes are scheduled every other week, guest availability permitting!

The first episode will feature Dr. Dimitra Fimi answering the Tolkien Experience Project questions and sharing her first and fondest memories of Tolkien with us!

We will be setting up the streams over the next week, and the podcast will be available from all of your favorite streaming services, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher!

You are also able to receive emails when new episodes are published (along with my other Tolkien-related content) by following my blog using the email bar on the right side of the page (the bottom of the page on mobile)!
