Episode 22: LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring w/ Kate


IT'S KATIE'S BIRTHDAY! We're celebrating her birth all month, and today we're watching her most favorite movie, The Fellowship of the Ring. In this episode we call in Katie's cousin Kate — the Frodo to her Samwise — to bask in the the glorious awkwardness of their love for Elijah Wood, discuss what weapons we'd want for a quest, and hear exactly why they couldn't just take the eagles to Mt. Doom.


Meet our guest, Kate!

Kate is Katie's cousin and longtime fellow fangirl of Lord of the Rings. You can follow her on Instagram at @katiemadesthings and on Twitter at @CosmetologyKate
