The Perfected Geek - Ep 01 - The Lord of the Rings - feat. Yoystan from Men of the West
In this episode, I talk to Yoystan from the YouTube Channel "Men Of The West". Every week he releases content about the legendarium of J.R.R Tolkien such as the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and other works. His videos have had more than 5.8 million views and he is subscribed to by over 60,000 fans. I found his channel as a recommended watch on YouTube. After watching the first video...I was hooked. By combining video, images, and music that are all from (or inspired by) Tolkien's works; he dives into super deep reviews and backstory history on the characters, places, and events in Middle Earth. Join us as we geek out about The Lord of the Rings and everything the Tolkienverse contains as well as how Yoystan has been able to turn his fandom into a solid side hustle career that helps support him while pursuing a college degree full time.
