  1. I just discovered this podcast by finding this episode! I enjoyed Tracy’s breakdown and comparison, especially the insight about Frodo’s journey as a tale of growing up (and I agree about him sending Sam away in the film … not a great moment).

    Tracy, if you decide to start The Silmarillion one more time and you’d like to listen to some chapter-by-chapter analysis from a couple of Tolkien geeks, look me up! I’m co-host of the Prancing Pony Podcast ( and we’re going through the Middle-earth legendarium, starting from The Silmarillion and … well, the beginning of the universe. 🙂

    Glad to find you guys!
