    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore
    Podcast!  Today's episode is another a short talk about events and COVID
    precautions as Alex talks with his friend Tim Niederriter
    [http://www.timniederriter.com/] about their time at 4th Street Fantasy
    convention, which held it's first in-person event since the outbreak of COVID
    earlier this month.  Alex and Tim also talk about the event itself, and why they

    EPISODE 150: ALSO 4TH ANNIVERSARY!!

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore
    Podcast! Today we celebrate a double milestone that happened with some pure
    coincidental Goblin Chaotic Energy. It is our 4th Anniversary, and it is also
    our 150th episode (ish... there were a few unnumbered check-ins but shhhhhhhhh).
    The hosts went back through 4 years and 150 episodes and chose their Top 4. And
    in true Goblin Fashion there was a lot of cheating and there may be a few other
    episodes... and guests... and hosts... and series... mentioned. We hope you
    enjoy and we cannot wait to bring you more!!

    Episode 149: The Reflection of a Mirror Breaker with Mab the Queen

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore
    Podcast! Today we return with a Goblin Profile! But for this Goblin we are doing
    things a little different. This Goblin is so amazing that they are going to be
    getting 2 parts! The Goblin? Kiki-Jiki, the Mirror-Breaker. For part one we are
    joined by the Queen (Mab the Queen [https://twitter.com/MabTheQueenMTG] that is)
    to discuss a community that has embraced Kiki-Jiki. This specifically grew out
    of the cEDH Community and the trans-femme community. Part 2 will be delving a
    little deeper into the lore (though will have many call backs to this episode,
    we don't want to give too much away, but we are really excited to feature this
    Goblin as part of Pride Month).

    Episode 148: What even is time? Cognitive Distortions

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore
    Podcast! May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the plan is for all the
    episodes this month to relate to important topics within Mental Health. We are
    also participating (along with other excellent creators) in #MentalHealthMtG and
    attempting to raise money for MH Organizations!!
     
    Today's episode is a little different. Hobbes is still recovering from the MH
    Charity Event 2 Day Streaming Extravaganza (or something). He does a brief recap
    of that before handing it over to Alex to discuss Cognitive Distortions/Common
    Mistakes in Thinking. We discussed this way back in Episode 69 about Davriel's
    "Entity" and May seemed like a good time to revisit, This article
    [https://www.mindmypeelings.com/blog/cognitive-distortions] is used as the
    jumping off point for discussion and can be a resource to learn more!

    For today's episode Alex and Hobbes are joined by returning guests Taya
    [https://twitter.com/tayatranscends] and Reinhardt
    [https://www.thereinhardtexperience.com/]! We wanted more perspectives to tackle
    the topic of how to start conversations about Mental Health. With Stigma still
    being a significant barrier (even for our Planeswalkers) we felt it was
    important to put this out there. For story today we look to Elspeth and her Lost
    Confession
    [https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/uncharted-realms/lost-confession-2013-09-11]
    and we also learn that there is fanfic out there about a therapist to the

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.
