So I was thrilled to have the chance to listen to a few podcasts in recent weeks. I must admit that sounds like the oddest thing for me to say, and it really is, but frankly the truth. First, Dean and Matt from the Magnificast interviewed me about my book Reforging a Forgotten History: Iraq and the Assyrians in the 20th Century. That was part of episode 102. Maybe it was all of 102. In any case, there was some incoherent babbling by me. I chalk it up to my recent indoor soccer-related knee injury that has forced me to limp through life the past week and not sleep as well. Secondly, my friend and brother, Father Greg Christakos just turned me on to Amon Sûl: Exploring the Tolkien Legendarium with the Christian Faith a sort of an Eastern Orthodox Tolkien love-fest. Great work on both folks – excited to hear upcoming episodes.
