This is a video from WIRED of The Tolkien Professor Cory Olsen explaining all the races that inhabit Middle-Earth (men, elves, hobbits, dwarves, dragons, ents, orcs, etc.) as well as Tolkien’s creative process throughout his writing career. The video is almost forty minutes long though, so COMPLIMENTARY PROTIP: be sure to go to the bathroom and make yourself a snack first. I went with cold Pop-Tarts. “What flavor?” The foil pack said ‘Greg’ in Sharpie.
