Show Notes:

Find out if hosts Jakob and Stuart crown the final Lord of the Rings novel a success, or pitch the dense tome into the fires of Mordor, in the one podcast to rule them all!

Author JRR Tolkien spent three books, and over a thousand pages, creating a dense Middle Earth mythology.  Now he brings that age of folklore to a thunderous close with Return of the King.  Here all of the saga's major characters are granted an opportunity to fulfill their destiny.  Among the questions answered:    

Can vagabond king Aragorn gather the army he needs to return to Gondor and reclaim his royal birthright from invading hordes?  

Will shieldmaiden Eowyn earn the respect of King Theoden and the other warriors by disguising herself as a man on the battlefield?

And most centrally, will ringbearer Frodo have the inner strength to escape Orc captivity and finally reach Mount Doom?  And will there be a Shire for the Hobbit to return to should he succeed in destroying the One Ring? 

Join Jakob (who grew up on Tolkien) and Stuart (who previously only knew the story from Peter Jackson's work) as they dig deep into the original text in preparation for the Now Playing Silver and Platinum donation reviews of all Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film adaptations.
