Join Joey and Caitlin as we journey through the Lord of the Rings, horse by horse.
This is a special episode in which we talk with Ben Moxon and get really inspired about horses. You can find him (@glenatron) and the actual play podcast he GMs (@CrudestSwords) on Twitter. He is also the assistant editor of Horsemanship Magazine (http://www.horsemanshipmagazine.co.uk/) and his wife blogs about mules at www.mulography.co.uk.

Next episode will cover chapter 7 of Book 4 and chapter 1 of Book 5 (yes we're skipping over chapters and it's weird!) and the first 42 minutes of the Return of the King film.
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:
