Welcome to But Why Tho? the podcast, where we talk about the parts of popular culture that people say matter and ask the question but why tho?

 

Kate, Adrian, and Matt answer this question with through passion, geekdom, history and even some scholarship.

Jun 6, 2018

This week Kate brings us through her favorite trilogy in existence: The Lord of the Rings. As a follow-up to our J.R.R. Tolkien episode, we explore the world of Middle Earth, talk about our fears for the Amazon show, and talk about how this genre series won the Academy when all other genre films struggle to get a nomination outside effects or costuming. We talk about our connections to characters, the story, and ultimately where we see The Lord of the Rings fitting into contemporary fandom.
