The Lorehounds: The Rings of Power Lorecast – S01E01 & E02 – Shadow of the Past & Adrift

David and John explore the history of the Trees of Valinor seen in the prologue to S01E01 of The Rings of Power. The Lorehounds then do a deep dive into the life of Finrod, Galadriel’s brother and her primary motivation in the show. And what in Middle-earth did Meteor Man say to Nori? The guys have some ideas.
