The Mana Pool
Join Brian, Mike, Dirk and Chewie as they discuss all things Magic: The Gathering. Since there are plenty of tournament and strategy podcasts out there, we've decided to focus on the fun of the game in all its many forms, from Prereleases to multiplayer free-for-alls to whatever else we can come up with. Give us a listen!
After an unexpected hiatus last week, most of the dorks are back with a vengeance this week! Dirk is unforunately unable to join us, but we've got a replacement that is very much suited to the topic at hand. Chris Lansdell, former podcasting whore, is with us to talk coverage. Magic coverage has been a thing for a long time, and it's been a fairly regular thing for a pretty good amount of time. But what would it take to get Magic coverage on mainstream sports stations? We're tackling that discussion and all the tangential nonsense that goes with it!

There are several bits of news to cover first, and you'll find all the links below! And don't forget to follow Chris on Twitter @lansdellicious and check out his articles on SCG!
