The Lord of the Rings trilogy is an epic adventure based on the novels written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Set in Middle-earth, the story follows the young Hobbit, Frodo Baggins, as he and the Fellowship embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring, to ensure the destruction of the Dark Lord Sauron. But what is the Lord of the Rings story really about? And, why is it so popular?

Whether it's The Ring of Power, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, or the original trilogy, Tolkien's words are filled with lessons and insight all can learn from. In this classic Pop & Locke episode, guests Jacob Levy, Paul Meany, and Paul Matzko join us to dig into the religious roots of the work, the nature of power, and whether or not the eagles would have actually helped destroy the ring.
