We are once again squeaking into a liturgical season. Before (or as) we switch from white (to red) to green, join me as I ramble though The Return of the King, which I think you'll find is pretty liturgically appropriate. Thanks for listening!

Join me on this low-energy ramble though The Two Towers. It is very late and I am very tired. I did my best. German listeners: I know you're from Frankfurt. I don't know why I said Munich. It was late and I still love you. Please don't leave me. Thanks for listening! Support the show or follow me around the internet: Twitter Instagram Website…

I may have missed the entire (quite long) Christmas season, but I squeaking in there with Ordinary Time. Join me as a muddle through The Children of Hurin. It's not my finest work, but you'll at least get a chance to laugh at me. Join me sometime in Lent for wherever I happen to be in The Lord of the Rings! Thanks for listening! Support the show or…

This time said point is about which language I should dedicate my precious free time to teaching myself. Thanks for listening! Support the show or follow me around the internet: Twitter Instagram…

I am a big fan of the Loki series that just concluded its first season on Disney+. Give a listen as I go through the show episode by episode with my takes and reactions. There will be spoilers. So many spoilers. I think the only thing I don't spoil is Alligator Loki. ...whoops. Thanks for listening! Support the show or follow me around the internet…

You may have noticed there was no episode last weekend. Was it because it was Independence Day? Was it because I forgot? Or am I trying to buy myself time because I don't have anything else recorded? Who's to say? Whatever the reason, feast your ears on some poetry, both proper poets' poetry, read badly by me, and some other poetry, written badly b…

What is it that makes you see yourself in a fictional character? Or, what is it about a fictional character that makes you feel represented by them? I take issue with the popular understanding of representation in media in an episode that might get me in trouble if, you know, anyone were listening. Thanks for listening!
