Marchese welcome readers of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and the other works in the Middle-earth legendarium to tune in as they discuss favorite passages from the books and films that started the worldwide fantasy phenomenon. Alan and Shawn engage in plenty of in-depth study of Tolkien's books, but with a healthy dose of self-effacing humor, pop-culture references, and bad puns. These are the ...

Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Kent Blue of the Roll to Play Network is our guest this week for a trip to the Ponyville Day Spa!

The Council of Elrond draws to a close, and options are finally debated about what to do with the One Ring. But the easy way is obviously the wrong way, the hard way seems impossible; and frankly, you know the committee is running out of ideas when “give the doomsday weapon to the guy in the yellow boots who sings all the time” is a proposal un ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Kate Harlow joins us this week for the most cartoony, clever, fun Rarity-centric episode ever. It’s a simple enough premise - Rarity’s opening her new Manehattan location and needs some help; hijinks inevitably emerge. But then there’s a newspaper reporter in a café and everypony’s giving interviews, a ...…
 
Frodo finally learns why Gandalf never came as promised: Saruman the (Until Recently) White has turned to the dark side!

Gandalf and Elrond come to terms with their own past mistakes while Aragorn reveals the lengths to which he’s gone to repair the faults of Isildur. As the story continues to unfold, the truth becomes clear to all at the Council of Elrond: Frodo’s ring is the One Ring cut from the hand of Sauron, and Gandalf isn’t afraid to use strong words — in ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube We were not prepared for a Rainbow Dash episode to be an early contender for best of the season, but this week’s episode might be a great candidate. Dash gets to live her dream with the Wonderbolts, then gets an unfortunate nickname, and HILARITY ENSUES. Watch as Rainbow Dash gives us the biggest smile ...…
 
The Council of Elrond continues with a brief history of Arnor and Gondor since Isildur’s time, and Boromir begins to learn the meaning of the riddle that brought him to Rivendell. He takes the revelation of Aragorn’s identity surprisingly well; but he still has questions, prompting another tale from Bilbo about the finding of the Ring. We hear ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube This week the Great and Powerful Specs joins us to talk about the return of one of Twilight Sparkle’s greatest nemeses: Trixie Lulamoon. That’s right, everyone’s favorite scheming, con artist, sleight-of-hand trickster Trixie is back, and this time…she’s humble and penitent? In fact, when Starlight get ...…
 
The Council of Elrond begins, and to help us bring the meeting to order, we welcome Corey Olsen — the Tolkien Professor himself — to the Prancing Pony Podcast! We start with a conversation about the nature of Rivendell itself, then dive into the text to untangle the various accounts at a pace none of us are quite used to. Along the way, we revi ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube It’s a Spike episode, and we’re joined by Jake from Snickles about everything dragons! It’s been a while since we visited the Dragon Kingdom, and we’ve got a great reason as Spike’s been summoned by the Dragon King, which involves bright glowing and a slight itching/burning sensation. More importantly, ...…
 
With his friends all gone, Frodo stays in the Hall of Fire listening to the minstrels of Rivendell. The Elvish singing speaks to him in sweet accustomed ways, and he wanders enchanted for longer than time can remember... returning only when he hears a familiar voice chanting. We give Bilbo’s Song of Eärendil the full Prancing Pony Podcast treat ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube This week we catch up with the Cutie Mark Crusaders post-cutie marks! Despite a lot of swooning over their shiny new flank decorations, the Crusaders are a little perplexed about what comes next for them. While Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo find some new activities to try on their own, Apple Bloom has a… ...…
 
Now taking a straight and stronger course to recovery, Frodo feels it’s time for food, drink, and merrymaking. He has a brief reunion with Sam, then with Merry and Pippin before they’re all moved on to the hall for a feast. Each way he turns his head, Frodo is surrounded by fair and powerful folk; but he has a pleasant (if cautious) dinner conv ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube It’s a very, very special this week as Lindsey Nelsen of Historical Hotties joins us for not just a Pinkie-sode, not just a Rarity-sode, but a Maud Pie EPISODE.

We return to the text of The Lord of the Rings with the first chapter of Book II! Frodo awakens in Rivendell after the incident down by the river to find Gandalf beside him.

Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube We’re back for part two of our premiere, and damn did things escalate quickly. It was all fun and games with the wild alicorn baby until THE CRYSTAL HEART GOT SHATTERED. Now, it’s a race against time to figure out how to fuse the heart back together or perish in a freak snowstorm. But with little to no ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Macintosh & Maud is back for Season 6! And what a season 6 this will be - lots of guests, tons of great ponies, and a whole lot of episodes that Macintosh & Maud aren’t as familiar with. We’re kicking off season one with a two-parter that starts off celebrating a new royal baby and Twilight planning St ...…
 
Alan and Shawn welcome a cozy group of listeners to the common-room for another round of live, unscripted questions about Tolkien, the podcast, and more! We return to the Ford of Bruinen to figure out exactly what happened, and even look back on the early adventures of the Hobbits in Book I of The Lord of the Rings. We court controversy with qu ...…
 
That’s what Vizzini told us to do, so we have. As we shake off the jet lag and learn to live again without full English breakfasts and a steady supply of fish and chips, we look back at Book I of The Lord of the Rings, revisiting the recurring themes in the story so far. Then we look ahead to Book II, and the new themes and tone that will emerg ...…
 
Alan and Shawn reunite in person for a live recording from Tolkien 2019 in Birmingham, England!

We've got our favorite Mane 6 episodes, our best and worst of the season, and, of course, the best RandoPony™ of Season 5. Plus we chat about our experience at BronyCon 2019 and the amazing things we learned there! It's one final walk around Pon ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon In the course of making these seasons, we tend to find a lot of joy, laughter, and silliness from this show, but on occasion it hits right at our hearts. This finale, though, hits so close and with such depth, that it might just be one of the best episodes of this show. To take a villain, a pony that Twilight ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon It's the first part of our season finale as Twilight Sparkle goes hoof to hoof with her greatest nemesis yet: Starlight Glimmer. Our whole season comes full circle as Twilight has to contend with somepony being even more magical than her. How much more magical? Let's just say somepony found Star Swirl the Bear ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon We're joined by the amazing Whitney and Lindsey Nelsen (Historical Hotties! Myth Takes!) to talk about the glammest pony pop star we've ever had on this show: Countess Coloratura. Turns out, though, that Applejack knows her from her days at Camp Friendship - as Rara. Thus begins a battle between Rara's manager ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon Twilight finally gets the chance to set off on a Cutie Map adventure, this time to the Smokey Mountains! Fluttershy’s getting called along as well, which she’s not terribly keen on, even though she puts her best hoof forward. Twilight’s in for a bit of a shock, though - her friendship playbook might not be the ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon You know you've been waiting for this moment, all you pony friends! We're finally reviewing My Little Pony: Equestria Girls! We're not as excited by this first movie as what's to come from the films and franchise, but your friends Macintosh & Maud still have a whole lot of fun recapping this first movie in a f ...…
 
We end Season 3 by welcoming Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull to the podcast! This renowned husband-wife team have co-authored some of the most essential books in Tolkien studies.

Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon Our pony guru Jon (Gumbie Cat Networks) joins us to talk all things Discord this week as our favorite chaos demon turns the tables on Twilight Sparkle! Everypony's got inside jokes with Discord, and Twilight makes some absolutely terrible assumptions about why. Friendship means trust and understanding and Twil ...…
 
Strider is remarkably not disappointed that the Elf who’s overtaken them on the road is not his girlfriend. It’s Glorfindel of Rivendell; and for listeners who remember our episodes on the fall of Gondolin, we’ll not only answer the question of whether this Glorfindel is really that Glorfindel, we’ll also delve into Tolkien’s essays to understa ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon It’s a very spooooopy week as Jen and Micah of I Never Saw That join us for Fluttershy's worst nightmare - having to be out and about on Nightmare Night. The Mane Six do their best to help Fluttershy join the activities, but she's a little too worried about impossibly rare monsters to enjoy herself. As creepy ...…
 
Strider’s path to Rivendell leads the hobbits through rough terrain; all the while, the days get colder and Frodo gradually succumbs to the evil effects of the Witch-king’s blade. A bad situation starts to look even worse when Pippin and Merry catch a glimpse of three trolls ahead — and if that sounds familiar to you, then you scored higher tha ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon This week, we’re off to celebrate Hearth’s Warming Eve at the Pie Rock Farm! Pinkie Pie and Applejack are celebrating being (maybe) cousins by bringing the Pie and Apple families together, but things get derailed pretty quickly. Applejack’s pretty dang judgmental about holiday traditions, while Pinkie Pie desp ...…
 
Frodo awakens, wounded and bewildered, after the attack on Weathertop. Believing they’ve been led into a trap, Sam is certain (again) that Strider is not to be trusted, but the Ranger proves himself useful (again) by treating the wound with athelas, a healing herb of the Dúnedain. The wonder drug doesn’t work wonders, but it eases Frodo’s pain ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon This week, Pinkie Pie has to keep a secret and nearly explodes from the pressure. Like, literally - it's taking everything in her power not to let EVERYONE know there's a royal baby on the way. And it doesn't make things easier as the Mane 6 prepare for Princess Cadence and Shining Armor's arrival and Pinkie k ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon This week Sarah Kinney (Little Realms) joins us again for the musical event of season five as the Cutie Mark Crusaders find their ultimate purpose and, just maybe, their cutie marks! To do so, though, they’ll need to help Pipsqueak get elected class president, re-evaluate Diamond Tiara’s bad attitude, and lear ...…
 
Alan and Shawn are pleased to welcome Greg Hildebrandt to the Prancing Pony Podcast! An iconic artist and illustrator, Greg (together with his twin brother Tim as the Brothers Hildebrandt) helped a generation of readers visualize Middle-earth in the Ballantine Books J.R.R. Tolkien Calendars from 1976 to 1978, and continues to create fantasy and ...…
 
Content Warning: We directly confront disrespectful and transphobic tropes used in this episode of My Little Pony (a stallion dresses in drag, which is used mostly for comedic purposes). While many of these moments are mild in nature, some of this content may be upsetting to some listeners. Please take care of yourselves and do not listen to th ...…
 
It’s our most Bombadilicious episode yet! Once again, Alan and Shawn open the common-room to listeners for live, unscripted questions that we answer on the spot as best we can. This time around we tackle several questions about Rings of Power (and the people who wear them), the optics of invisibility, and how not to purloin poultry. Also, some ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon Back to Manehattan this week after the Cutie Mark calls Rarity (AGAIN) and Applejack. Of course, it’s Manehattan, so the friendship problem isn’t clear until it literally smacks Rarity in the face. Turns out Coco Pommel is having trouble keeping a local community event afloat, and needs Rarity and Applejack to ...…
 
Evening falls on Weathertop, and our heroes make camp beneath the stars with the Black Riders not far away. Strider tells stories to chase away their fears, covering most of The Silmarillion in a lot less time than we did. But in the darkest night, the Black Riders sneak up on the camp, and Frodo is suddenly overcome by a desire to disappear. W ...…
 
Strider leads the hobbits through the mysterious (and not entirely comforting) ruins of ancient kingdoms of Men along the road to Weathertop, with the hope of meeting Gandalf there. The Ranger’s knowledge of ancient lore surprises the hobbits nearly as much as Sam’s does; and as they roll up to the hill, they discover they’re not the only ones ...…
 
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon We're back with Rarity this week as she goes full film noir with Rainbow Dash. After Dash gets picked as an alternate for a Wonderbolts performance, she gets embroiled in a controversy as Spitfire gets sent away on (gasp) false pretenses. Rarity's been deep in detective novels for her new fashion line, though, ...…
 
Black Riders attack the inn during the night, so Strider opts for an early check-out to get out of Bree quickly. They soon discover that Merry’s ponies are missing, delaying their departure; but Barliman, uh, ponies up the money to compensate their losses and buys them one underfed beast of burden for the road. Bill Ferny (now twelve silver pen ...…
 
p>Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon Kate Harlow a/k/a @ArgonKitten of Kids on Bikes Podcast joins us this week for our first official Rarity episode of the season! Rarity seems to have learned from her past friendship problems, and her fashion business is doing pretty great as well. So naturally, she wants to expand into the next adventure - t ...…
 
Frodo reads Gandalf’s letter, more concerned than ever at the wizard’s absence and the delay caused by Barliman. But at least the letter confirms Strider’s identity, and Frodo is wise enough to choose to trust him. Sam’s continued protests give the Ranger a chance to be tempted by the Ring, but he keeps his self-control; and before long Merry r ...…
