Riddles in the Dark 2.16: You Be Dragon?

November 17th, 2013

Episode 236 of 366 episodes

Checking out a flood of material released by Peter Jackson for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, with a little dissension amongst our Riddles in the Dark co-hosts to spice things up. Note: This was a highly visual episode, as Corey et al. tracked back and forth through the videos being considered. If you prefer to watch the episode rather than just listen to the audio, go to http://www.mythgard.org/?p=5060.
