Sorry if this is the wrong place for this comment, I’m new to all this! A thought struck me at the end of the podcast, regarding Sam’s habit of secrecy. Surely this narration is one of Sam’s additions to the Red Book, especially in light of Alistair’s comment that Sam’s contribution would tend to the self-deprecating!
Thanks for all the brilliant insights, not only into LotR but stories and narrative in general. May there be many more!
