Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien. On this episode, we continue discussing Chapter 21 of The Silmarillion, Of Túrin Turambar. It’s a pretty tragic tale, only slightly more depressing than the current election cycle. LOL! If you liked that bit of topical humor then leave us a rating and feedback on iTunes! Heck, even if you didn’t, leave us a rating anyway. It’s easy to do, only takes a moment, and is the best way to show your appreciation for what we’re doing here. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
