I loved the discussion in episode, as with all the Silmarillion episodes, but if I had any complaints about this episode it's that I do wish there had been a little bit more moderation of the participants. it did feel like one participant was dominating and going on and on.
Hi, are the Hobbit lectures not available anymore? They will not play for me. Thank you
What drew me to this show were the lecture series, class recordings, and interviews with fellow academics. The show had turned into a typical, bland, editorial discussion of the Hobbit films. Corey Olsen is a true academic and I miss his concise, always-on-topic episodes. They used to challenge me to think differently about Tolkien by considering the other works served as his inspiration. Now, instead of a 60-90 learning session, episodes are clocking in at almost 3 hours and are mostly joking around. Add the constant feedback hum of Trish's microphone, background interruptions, and Dave's desperate need to talk about how he loves to be contrary for the sake of being contrary and I just don't enjoy it anymore.
Brilliant! It has rekindled the passion I once had for the written word. I've missed Middle Earth and have just started rereading the Hobbit. I hope to hear more about The Lord of the Ring. I am especially appreciative of the intro and how Mr. Olsen defers to what Tolkien himself states about his writings. It takes a true understanding of literature to not let ego or personal ideology interfere with the reading and interpretation of Great Works.
I enjoy these podcasts, more the ones with Corey in it than Digest episodes. I understand and appreciate Dave and Trish's contributions, but between Trish's manic laugh, frequent interruptions by her screeching or barking animals in the background and mike hangups, I am close to giving up on the Digest episodes. I hope this will be taken as consturctive criticism- it would be nice to maintain a professional quality in these podcasts.
