About This List

"Look's like meat's back on the menu, boys!"
  1. Explore J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth book-by-book, chapter-by-chapter from a Christian perspective. According to Tolkien, the Secret Fire that was sent to burn at the heart of the world was the Holy Spirit. Join our Fellowship as we seek the influences of Tolkien's own Christianity in his Legendarium.
  2. As they explore the work of J. R. R. Tolkien, hosts Alan Sisto and Shawn E. Marchese welcome readers of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and the other works in the Middle-earth legendarium to tune in as they discuss favorite passages from the books and films that started the worldwide fantasy phenomenon. Alan and Shawn engage in plenty of in-depth study of Tolkien's books, but with a healthy dose of self-effacing humor, pop-culture references, and bad puns. These are the two guys you'd want to hang out with at a pub and talk Tolkien with.
  3. The Legendarium exists primarily as a book club for fantasy and sci-fi, both the classics and the new classics. Authors discussed have included Tolkien, Brandon Sanderson, David Eddings, Ernest Cline, Robert Heinlein, Michael Crichton, and more. You'll also get the occasional movie review or Star Wars discussion. (Anything in the realm of the fantastic is fair game!) Check out past episodes and other content at
