About Talking Tolkien

Talking Tolkien is the brainchild of Katie, Chase, and Jon. We began the Silmarillion on January 3rd, 2015—J.R.R. Tolkien's 123rd birthday—with a mission to read through his works chapter by chapter and capture our discussion so anyone could read along. The three of us capture a whole host of views, as Katie is a lifelong fan raised by a Tolkien scholar, Jon is a childhood fan revisiting the books for the first time in a decade, and Chase is a complete newcomer whose only Middle Earth experience was Peter Jackson's movie trilogy.
