This week saw the launch of The Friendship Onion, a double act podcast with Lord of the Rings hobbits and real-life friends Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd. Of the many celebrity podcasts coming out, I am pretty excited about this one for a couple of reasons:

- Dominic Monaghan has been into podcasts for a long time.
How do we know? Well, he says it in the first episode of The Friendship Onion. But Dom was also our celebrity podcast fan in our For The Love of Pod article from Issue #002 of the Pod Bible magazine. We’ve pulled his suggestion out of the archives…
