Corey Olsen (@TolkienProf) teaches in the English Department at Washington College (in Maryland). He has a podcast as The Tolkien Professor and we talk about The Hobbit movies v the books. You'll want it to go longer. Me too. We'll do it again. 

Happy NEW YEAR! Feel free to donate to The Dork Forest at or Order merch from my standup website, check my standup dates and feel free to order from Amazon through the banner there as well. I get a kickback.

I know that the intro and ads are still from December... so, sure, STILL go to and buy geeky cool stuff. For it IS really great. Go ahead and don't donate this week to TDF, donate to the food bank of your choice instead. Turns out people are still hungry and will still help you find your local foodbank.

All Things Comedy is the Podcast network I'm in and they're great. Check it out.
