    Episode 83: Toxic Masculinity with Michelle Rapp (Pt2)

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast as we are once again joined by Michelle Rapp (aka KilnFiendPotter). Michelle was the first guest of the Goblin Lore Podcast way back in episodes 8 and 9 when she discussed the Color Pie and Art with us! We welcomed her back as we were struck by the discussion in this article she wrote for Card Kingdom. In Part 1 we discussed her cats, the before times (pre-COVID), and Jace the Mindsculptor and now in Part 2 we pick up that discussion with looking at a more recent character Lukka (from Ikoria) as well as talking about the Real World Implications of Toxic Masculinity.

    Episode 79: 1051200

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast, pull up a chair and pour yourself a cup of your favorite drink as we stroll down memory lane. In today's episode Alex and Hobbes are taking things back to the very beginning, 2 years ago, when they were both approached by Joe about a new cast idea. This episode pulls back the curtain to talk about the growth and changes that the cast have had over the past two years. From the beginning to looking forward, this episode is an ode to those that have allowed us to get to where we are today.
     
    We want to give a special thanks to our "unofficial" co-host Chase as well as our very first guest Michelle because without them this would not have started or continued. We also want to give special thank yous to Erin Campbell, Tappy, Olivia, Jackal Costuming, Titus Lunter, and all of the guests and our Patrons.

Great MTG podcast

The Goblin Lore Podcast always delivers with great content related to MTG lore and how it relates to real world issues. They have great hosts and guests and are always worth a listen.

Gobbos for Life

What can I say about the Goblin Lore Podcast that hasn't already been said about the wheel, sliced bread or penicillin.....this is one of the greatest inventions ever. It makes me feel like I’m doing cocaine with Jeff Goldbloom while riding a velociraptor over the rainbow.

If you don’t listen to this podcast, you’re an idiot.
