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!

Chewie enjoyed asking people Three Questions at GP Charlotte so much that he decided to truck up to Pittsburgh and do it again! As always, Chewie's asking Three Questions to anyone willing to answer them, whether they're a listener, judge, pro player, innocent bystander, or just someone that catches his eye. 

The real purpose of this show, like most of the stuff Chewie does, is to entertain you, the listener.  Rather than asking the same old questions that everyone else does, he's looking to give you a slightly more off-the-wall look into these Magic players and judges and what-have-you by catching them off guard and putting them on the spot. 

This episode covers the Friday of GP Pittsburgh.  The event was sort of dead by the time Chewie got there, but after being filled with glorious Indian food he was more than willing to wander around and talk to people.  He got some of his tournament buddies, a mess of judges, the judge manager, G-Fabs, and even a whole Commander game full of Twitter folks like Norbert88 and Brainstorm Brewery's Jason Alt.

Hope you enjoy! Let me know what your answers would be!

This is the first episode after Chewie got back from his listener-supplied trip to Grand Prix Las Vegas!  So of course, he has to talk at great length about GP Vegas.  Because it was amazing in so many ways.  Like, SO many ways.  So I'm gonna go ahead and apologize for how long that took, because apparently no one realized just how long we went on about it.

Then there's all the other stuff!  Here are some handy links for you:
