I shall not keep you long — I have called you all together for a Purpose. Indeed, for Three Purposes!  First of all, to tell you that I am immensely fond of you all, and that one year is too short a time to podcast among such excellent and admirable listeners!

Introducing Prancing Pony Ponderings!

Beloved listeners – we hope you are as excited as we are to hear about the debut of a new section of our website: Prancing Pony Ponderings!

Before Alan and Shawn embarked upon the Prancing Pony Podcast, we were discussing our ideas in a Facebook group through short essays focused on specific themes in Tolkien’s work as illustrated in favorite passages from the books. We’ve always wanted to take this idea to the next level, and now we’ve decided to do just that.

New podcast episodes are released every other week, so follow this blog and our social media feeds to catch Prancing Pony Ponderings on the weekends between episodes! The first essay is by our Man of the West, Alan Sisto, and will be released this Sunday, October 2.
