d'Archive Episode 50: Hippie Hobbits

The 50th episode of d’Archive is the first of a new format that will appear periodically on the podcast which integrates my field recordings from the archives doing research into selected topics. This episode features a deep dive into archives and library collections that relate to the high fantasy world of Middle-Earth created by author J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973) and it’s intersection with the counterculture in the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
