    This has me so excited. If I get my hands on a copy I'll definitely do my best to give impressions! I believe I heard on NPR once that Tolkien and his peers used to gather at a pub on weekends, and they'd recite to each other their old english poetry and compare notes on the meaning. These men were true badasses.Jamie - Beowulf member's episode? hmmm???

    I think a Beowulf members episode is a great idea.
