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!

This was recorded six months ago on Dec 17, 2020. It was recorded on Chewie's old laptop because the dead computer. It was supposed to get posted a few days later, but then I was delayed because of putting the new computer together, and then getting bummed out, and then getting distracted, and then holidays, and and and. But here it is now!

Chewie tells the tale of December, that has focused all of its 2020 wrath on him at once. We reflect on the frustrations that come from watching our fellow humans not take the massive global pandemic seriously. We all share personal stories of what this horrible hell year has been like for us. We head into Magic territory to discuss what WotC has been up to this year and why that's got us all vaguely (or in one case, specifically) disillusioned with it. Then we turn to the current political landscape in the US, but luckily not for long. Then we look at what we would all like for 2021 to make it a better year for everyone.

Sorry for not getting this out in 2020, but crap happens and decided to happen to me. I hope you're all being safe in 2021 since this first week has been the longest 3 months ever. 


Come join us in the future! The show is live on Thursdays around 8pm(ish) Eastern time on Twitch!
