About An Unexpected Podcast

Dear Friends,

We don’t know half of you half as well as we should like, and we like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. If you enjoy listening to An Unexpected Podcast: Talkin’ Tolkien, then this is your opportunity to support the show and get involved! We really enjoy podcasting and want to take our podcast to the next level! We would love to upgrade our equipment, travel to conventions, conduct more interviews, keep the podcast ad-free, and most importantly provide you with a way to INFLUENCE the SHOW!

We love interacting with listeners and discussing Middle Earth! When you become our Patron, you not only support the show you become a part of the show! Our rewards are designed to give you additional content, exclusive access, and influence.

We invite you to join us on an adventure as Ezra and Lane delve deep into Middle Earth. Grab your book, a highlighter, cup of coffee, and keep a pocket-handkerchief close at hand. Remember, “Not all those who wander are lost” and we intend to let our imagination wander far and wide.

Join our Fellowship today!

Yours truly,

Lane and Ezra
