Episode 215 of 322 episodes

Trish Lambert and Breana Melvin talk through a video that Breana compiled of all of Peter Jackson's public videos (prior to release of the first movie trailer) about The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Breana cut and spliced to put everything into as close as chronological as she could, and she and Trish consider the meaning of it all.
