03 Jun Lord of the Rings
One rad to rule them all? This week Kyle and Matthew have a wide-reaching conversation about the Lord of the Rings with their expert guests Clifford Broadway and Justin Sewell from TheOneRing.Net. Clifford has read all the books a zillion times over, while Justin got into it by watching the movies. They join forces to talk about the films from the first Hobbit movie to the modern-day remakes (with a detour to discuss Ralph Bakshi). They also discuss Professor J. R. R. Tolkien and his invention of languages, as well as The Silmarillion, and of course, the Beatles movie that never was. Watch Clifford and Justin on “TORn Tuesday” every Tuesday afternoon at 5pm PST on theonering.net or call them anytime at 1-530-6-4FRODO. You can also catch Clifford on ShopXSN.com.
