Guest spot on DSRA Podcast!

After welcoming a few guests to the Prancing Pony Podcast over the past 18 months, we’re pleased to announce that for the first time ever, we’ve had the chance to guest on somebody else’s great podcast!

A few days ago, we sat down with the team from the DSRA Podcast (Dragons, Sexy Robots, & Adventures) to talk about Beren and Lúthien. They’re big fans of Tolkien’s work, and we had a great time talking to them about the new publication. They even let us read some of our favorite passages!

Go check out the episode here, and then visit their website and feed for further explorations of all things nerd at Dragons, Sexy Robots, & Adventures Podcast

The newest outtakes are on page 4, starting from #34. Or view all of them starting here, and check back regularly for more laughs at our expense!
