The Elven Padawan #1: Of Beginnings, Balrogs, and Bucketheads

Welcome to the first ever episode of The Elven Padawan podcast! In this episode, Shay introduces the show and what it’s all about. There’s a great segment on the Maiar of Middle-Earth. Then we dive helmet-first into quite the monologue on Stormtroopers: who they are, what they do, and why they can’t hit a stinkin’ thing!

Please subscribe to the show on iTunes and leave me a review! You can also follow this site, and get updates on every new post. Also, leave comments below with your thoughts on this first episode, as well as the topics covered in this episode, and if you label them #EPno.2, I’ll read them on the next episode of the Elven Padawan podcast!

*something I forgot to mention in the episode itself: this podcast, at least for now, is also  available on SoundCloud! So check it out there, too (that link will take you directly to the page for “The Elven Padawan”.)
