The Bookening discusses the second half of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.

Show Notes

Oh boy, our heroes had to record this one late at night, after recording another episode, and their brains were fried. So if you like that kind of Bookening, this is The Bookening for you. But we got in some good talk about Mirkwood, the power of forests and woods, Smaug the dragon, how to make a good villain, and other Hobbity things. Next week, we'll finally get to Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.

By the way, Nathan says something confusing about episode order at the end of the episode. What he means is not that Sense and Sensibility Part 2 is coming up next (skipping Part 1). But that we recorded out of order, so Part 2 will contain more compliments. If that makes sense.

What is The Bookening?

3 guys—a pastor, a scholar, and their gleeful provocateur—discuss the great books. We take God and literature seriously—but the second one not overly so.
