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!

The dorks get together to talk about Halloween! Trick or treating, candy, costumes, tv specials, what scared us when we were kids, just whatever we can think up. Let us know what you think of Halloween!

Who knew Halloween was so divisive?


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

The dorks return to take another look at the murky waters that are video game genres! We'll be rattling off a genre, giving some examples of it, and discussing pros and cons of each one. We're hitting less of them this time around because some of the ones we did hit are much bigger this time around. Be sure to tell us what games you love or hate in any given genre!

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!

The announcement of the 30th Anniversary thing really rubbed Chewie the wrong way, and none of the other dorks understood it either. So here's an episode about WotC's decline into the role of Evil Corporation, with lots of talking points provided by you, the fans! 

Sorry we didn't actually get to the positive things we wanted to talk about. But damn WotC, could you just not be so horribly money-grubbing? That would really make things easier on us. Just sayin'.
