SQPN launches ‘Secrets of the Lord of the Rings’ podcast

Secrets of the Lord of the Rings

CONYERS, GA - The Internet’s most popular portal for Catholic podcasts, the Star Quest Production Network ( ), announces the addition of a new show to its line-up of popular Catholic programming.

“The Secrets of the Lord of the Rings” is a thrilling audio podcast that takes listeners on a voyage through the mythological and religious themes that have made J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional work loved around the world.

Exciting moment

In the midst of the recent publication of Tolkien’s posthumous “Children of Hurin,” and the April launch of a worldwide online multiplayer game based on the world of Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” the new podcast is launched at an exciting moment for fans of Tolkien’s Middle Earth.

“People continue to be intrigued by these stories and want to know more about the events, the characters, and the mythology of the world that Tolkien created”, says Fr. Roderick Vonhögen, Catholic priest and host of the new podcast. “However, few people realize that the Lord of the Rings and other books by this great author are deeply rooted in Tolkien’s Catholic faith.”

Catholic perspective

“In his works, Tolkien expresses fundamental themes like love and hate, selfishness and self-sacrifice, loyalty and betrayal, good and evil, and shows the Catholic perspective on these matters in a subtle and non-allegoric way. In this new podcast, I want to highlight these deeper layers of the mythology of Middle Earth.”

Fr. Roderick is founder and CEO of SQPN inc., an international Catholic multimedia organization focusing on Catholic evangelization and education. Its website hosts nearly 30 catholic audio and video podcasts, and reaches a worldwide audience of an estimated 100,000 people.

It seems the podcast was discontinued. There are only five episodes and no more are appearing. It's a bit of a pity...
