A last minute addition, Chad Bornholdt (Texas Tolkien Talk Podcast) freed up his afternoon so he could join his co-host Chad High on the podcast panel. I don't know which one to call "Other Chad"!

Also, for ease of remembering/sharing, I've changed the Discord link to be much easier to remember/share

(It's the same link behind the scenes)

Join us there for live chat during the event, submit questions to the guests, and maybe with a mathom or two!

As is usual I miss these sorts of things for the world encroaching on me but I wish you all a great night and I'll try to follow on YouTube as I can.

I was able to follow along for most of the night. Hearing Dick Plotz and Bob Foster talk was really cool. Even though they are both long retired from Tolkien activities they were still fascinating to listen to. And as others said, to put faces to the names.

The illustrators panel was great, I could listen to Ted and Donato all day.

Listening to James and Elise was especially interesting to me as their respective areas of interest are quite close to mine (although far ahead of my own plans that one day hopefully lead to a university repository focused on Tolkien research).

I caught up a little later on with the open mic, Marcel as always is the funniest guy, typically German in the best ways.

A really fun night. Thanks to Jeremy, Andrew and Chad for putting it on and getting some great names to come talk.

Definitely a fun time. I’m glad it was recorded as I didn’t think I’d see any of it live, but fortunately I did actually manage to catch nearly all of it.
