Shadowfacts

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

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!

This is a special episode in which we had the honor of chatting with Molly (@MollyOstertag or @hobbitgay) about Sam and Frodo being incredibly gay for each other and how much Sam projects on Bill the Pony. You can find her incredible fanfic here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/25095466/chapters/60793246

We recorded this episode before the Black Lives Matter protests started, but we unequivocally support that work and have been donating and engaging in local efforts to defund, disarm, demilitarize, and disband police forces. We encourage you to do the same as you are able. Also check out this document for a few resources on racism in fantasy:
