Shadowfacts

a podcast about Lord of the Rings, but only the horse parts

Join Joey and Caitlin as we journey through the Lord of the Rings, horse by horse.

If you have questions about horses or anything LOTR-related, send them to us at shadowfactspod@gmail.com!

This is a special episode in which we discuss LOTR with Rayne Klar, who you can find on Twitter @smallsmallwitch. Next episode will cover the next section of the film, but we haven't recorded it yet so no minute markers, sorry!

 

Police brutality and broader issues of racism have not ended. Please find ways to participate/contribute to the abolition of policing and prisons as you are able. Also check out this document for a few resources on racism in fantasy:
