Radio Free Acton: ‘Partying with Hobbits and Jonathan Witt’
I flew to Grand Rapids, Michigan recently to give a talk on a book about J.R.R. Tolkien by me and my Stream colleague Jay Richards. While I was in town I sat down for an interview with Radio Free Acton host Marc Vander Maas:
On this edition of Radio Free Acton, your humble host bravely battles a late-spring cold to bring you an interview with Jonathan Witt, Managing Editor at TheStream.org, and author of The Hobbit Party: The Vision of Freedom that Tolkien Got and The West Forgot. Was Frodo a small-government type? Was Tolkien a card-carrying member of the local Republican party? Or were the hobbits short-statured hippies who really enjoyed their pipe weed and the free healthcare provided by the Shire’s smooth-running, benevolent bureaucracy? Find out on Radio Free Acton!
