Hey there fellow travelers! John here to let you know that it's time to get on the road again!

Beginning in September, we will begin our journey through The Hobbit. This 8 episode podcast series will include in-depth, chapter-by-chapter discussions of the first 6 chapters of Tolkien's 1937 fantasy classic, and conclude with a discussion of Peter Jackson's film The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey. We'll also take a special look at the character Gollum, and consider his overall significance to the stories of Middle-earth.

However, we need your help to make this season as great as it can posssibly be! While we've produced over 140 hours of discussion about Tolkien's works over the last several years, when you add in all of the time preparing and producing the episodes, it actually adds up to quite a bit more. We want to make this series as great as possible, and every dollar you send our way is more wind in our sails!

And if we can double our target, we'll produce 2 extra episodes along with this batch!

Of course, when you do contribute even $1, you'll be registered for a grand prize drawing of an amazing Tolkien-related prize. And higher tiers of giving guarantee you even better perks, like free books and contributor-only bonus episodes!

Thanks for listening, and until next time, the Road goes ever on!!!
