The 42cast Episode 69: One Podcast to Rule Them All Part Three – The Return of the Host


Our epic length recording about the life and works of legendary author, J.R.R. Tolkien, comes to a close. In this episode we ask whether The Hobbit truly needed to be three films. We also discuss the musical language of the Lord of the Rings movies. Bree mentions what it’s like to live near so much Tolkien history. Anji laments missing her chance to hear Billy Boyd sing in person Stephanie discusses similarities between names in Babylon 5 and Lord of the Rings. Stick around, because we have outtakes after the episode!

As this is part three of a single recording, there is no five-minute controversy this week.

This week Anji, Stephanie, and Bree stay with the cast.

Show Notes:
