Season One of The Rings of Power is over, but there’s still more Tolkien to talk. David and John continue their conversation with Tolkien scholar Marilyn R. Pukkila in this bonus episode.
The first passage for the Silmarillion read-along will be “Ainulindale.” You can find it in the first few pages of The Silmarillion.
