Episode 79: Interview with Michael Drout, Part 1

In this episode we talk to Professor Michael Drout from Wheaton College. We learn why so many scholars think it is important to talk about how to read Tolkien. We discuss how Tolkien created an “impression of depth” through his vast size and intricate detail in his writings. And we learn about Dr. Drout’s first time meeting Tom Shippey.
