A little book was published in 1937 that went on to change modern fantasy literature.  Inspired by the stories he told his sones, J.R.R. Tolkein created a masterpiece of children's and fantasy literature.  Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sit down with Hobbit fans, Dave Farnell and Shaney Ivey to discuss the book, its history, its impact and express their hopes for the trilogy that will begin being released this Christmas.  There is a very important announcement about our boards and the Nerdliess thing, so this is a bit of a supersizer.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.
