You don’t need Lord of the Rings explained to you. It’s a series of books from the 50s adapted into movies in the 00s. And they’re good. Like REAL good. Like 11 Oscars in one year good. Even if you only got into the movies, LOTR has been a part of your life for almost 20 years.
There is a reason we’re doing an episode on it now though. Here’s a brief history lesson: When Kristin and husband/editor Will were just friends they decided to spend a day watching all of the Lord of the Rings movies. After the long day, Will, in the most dude-ish way possible, said he “like likes” Kristin so they started dating. That was ten years ago this week, and they’ve celebrated every year since by hosting a party for watching the movies, but mostly hanging out with friends and eating delicious food.
