Episode 91: Keep Calm and Think of Frodo

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book VI, Chapter 1, The Tower of Cirith Ungol

In this chapter we are back with Caitlin’s favourite Hobbit! But that still isn’t enough to save this chapter from being mostly boring.

There’s architecture. And orcs!

There’s more architecture and more orcs!

There’s a touching reunion!

Also, uh, stay until the very end after the sign off if you want to hear us continue that Redwall discussion.

Episode 90: Acute Depression of the Arm

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 10, The Black Gate Opens

In this chapter the army spends a lot of time getting to a battle…and then not much time on the battle.

Merry is left behind!

We were wrong last week about miles. Which is just typical us.

As the army retraces Frodo and Sam’s steps, how much have we forgotten from The Two Towers?

And Hobbits, man. They rock.
