Attention! This episode was recorded before we talked with Molly, so if you notice a lack of conversational continuity in subject matter, that's why!

This episode covers chapter 6 of Book 3 (the first half of Two Towers) and The Two Towers film from 1:12:40 to 2:01:30 (or 00:15:00 if you switch discs partway through). Next episode will cover chapter 7 in Book 3 and the film section from 2:01:30 to 3:10:14. 

Crucial protests against police brutality and broader issues of racism continue. Please find ways to participate/contribute as you are able. Also check out this document for a few resources on racism in fantasy, and let us know if you have any suggestions to add to it!
