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 the last thoroughly depressing episode of TMP, the dorks return with something hopefully more upbeat. We're talking about hobbies, and how we engage with them! We'll discuss the levels of engagement one can have with a given hobby, like Magic or Star Wars. We'll cover ways to disengage with a hobby when it becomes necessary or wanted. We'll talk about gatekeeping, which is the dark side of fandom.

All this is peppered with our usual personal experiences, tangents, and assorted nonsense of course. I know we missed some aspects of hobbies, but I think we covered the side of things we wanted to. Be sure to let us know about the ways you engage with your hobbies!

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