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!

Well, here it is.  We've been at it virtually nonstop for six years.  We started 300 (plus) episodes ago in November of 2007 and haven't looked back.

And that's the reason for this episode!  We've actually never looked back, and that's ridiculous.  So this episode is all about the past.  It starts with a look back at the various firsts and notable things we've done, be it segments or popular episodes or whatever.  Then we've got to discuss all the various and sundry guests we've had on the show over the years (yes, all of them).  Almost a full third of our episodes have involved a guest host of some sort after all.  We finish it all up with the first actual look at our annual bizarre reality-twisting episodes.

We hope you guys enjoy this.  It's pretty light on Magic content, but it's loaded with plenty of fan service, nostalgia, and nonsense.  Thanks for everything!

Special thanks:
Tosus for the intro
K.I.L.R.O.Y. for the absconding
