Pop Medieval Ep 48: Where There's a Whip...

Doc and Nina try to record an episode without giggling, but the lord of the lash says, “nay, nay, nay!” They are back in Nerdhaven studios together and, propelled by the new Lord of the Rings series called “The Rings of Power,” discuss some Tolkien adaptations. Stay for a serenade. 

Topics discussed: Overpromising book deadlines, selective rotoscoping, a shocking dvd discovery, Rankin Bass’s confusing start and bizarre flashbacks, Nina’s need for a map, Frodo-mon, the fourth wall break, and justice for the felbeast.
