About This Show
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!

Episode 488 - The Terrible & the Ridiculous
Chewie, Mike, Brian, and Dirk have been talking about Magic: The Gathering on the internet for almost 10 years (at the time of this writing). Since there are so many shows about strategy and tournaments, these dorks focus on all the fun you can have with the game outside of that, from flavor to philosophy to game design to history to whatever else we can come up with. We're funny, we're serious about what we do, and we love it!

More meat less bread...
I love Magic. I am new to the game and have been playing since April. It is by far the best game I have ever played and considering that I am 52 years old, that is saying a lot. Too many of these podcasts fall into the personalities filling the first quarter (or more) with personal or comedic filler. And while a bit of that is not bad, that is not what I am listening to a podcast for. I want info relevant to what I am here for... Magic the Gathering talk. If I want to here someone being funny, I will search out a podcast of that caliber. Chewie is generally very good about keeping the flow on task as well as the others. Keep up the good work.

I move a lot, so I don't get to hold onto a lot of long term friends. For that these guys make me sad, but happy because it feels like they will always be there. Sometimes I think Chewie maybe a lazy and obnoxious and I wouldn't want to hang out with him, but really I'm the terrible, judgmental person and these guys have hearts of gold. Thanks for all you do and I'll keep listening.
