    Episode 215: Trauma in the Aftermath

    Episode 215: Trauma in the Aftermath

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast!

    TW: trauma, PTSD, sexual violence, rape, combat violence, death, social anxiety, depression.

    Way back in Episode 2 [https://zencastr.com/z/DJ5927RB] of the show we discussed what trauma is and how it differs from – but relates to – post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), and describes the resilience people find to work through a traumatic experience. While we have revisited elements of the topic we are doing so today explicitly in discussing the recent fall out of the War of the Machines and the various trauma responses we have seen. This episode focuses a lot on the topic of avoidance and while definitely a heavier topic, one we find important to discuss.

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore Podcast!

    Episode 210: Kaya is Burning Out

    Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore Podcast! Today is a very special miraculous episode (aka we are back form our break). We took the month of December off to recharge and it was needed. So why not come back with a topic that's important to us (so much so that we talked about it previously here [https://t.co/HSTjen4OHC] and here [https://t.co/wbyWjMk5Cz]). That's right Burnout! This time we are looking at the journey of Kaya who has been summoned back to Ravnica by Teysa Karlov.
