    Thank You for Listening to Kitchen Table Magic

    Thank You for Listening to Kitchen Table Magic

    I want to thank everyone who’s listen to, shared, and supported Kitchen Table Magic throughout the years.
    I want to thank our sponsors, who have been so kind to me and the show, Brian of Paragon City Games, and Terra of Card Kingdom. I’ve always been so grateful for the unwavering support from both of these companies. They embody what all retailers in the Magic community should be.
    I want to thank the guests on Season 4: Aaron Forsythe, Meghan and Maria of Good Luck High Five, Reuben Bresler, Ashlen Rose, Matt Sperling, Seth Manfield, Andrew Magrini, Ian Dixon, David Williams and Gavin Verhey.
    I also want to thank all of my wonderful guests from all of our past seasons who generously shared their lives with us on the podcast.
    There have been so many wonderful stories shared in my past episodes, so if you haven’t listened to them, they’re all archived on KitchenTableMagic.org and HipstersoftheCoast.com.
    I want to thank all of my Patreon supports. Your generous support helped to pay for the audio equipment, editing software, web hosting, and postage for all the signed cards I sent out.
    I want to thank the Magic community at large for your kindness and friendship. Thank you for having me, and thank you for listening to the stories I produced.
    I want to thank Wizards of the Coast for helping me set up interviews with all of the WotC staff over the years.
    I’ll be working on a new project and traveling the world. I’ll be continuing to tell stories around the world with my camera, this time with photos and videos.
    You can stay in touch with me on Twitter @samotango, where I will announce my new project soon.
    If there’s one thing I’ve learned after interviewing four seasons worth of the Magic community, it’s that this game is nothing without its people. The Magic community is so vast and so diverse, that you could spend the rest of your life talking about it and still not know everything there is to know about Magic.
    I hope this show has inspired you, to try playing new formats, to meet more people, or to start your own podcast. Whatever it may be, I hope you know, that you matter, and after listening to the stories of everyone I interviewed, you see how much people can truly inspire each other.
    I’m your host, Sam Tang, and thank you for listening to Kitchen Table Magic.

    Let’s welcome Senior Magic Designer for Wizards of the Coast, Gavin Verhey to the show.
    Gavin has been making Magic for over 7 years and is the one to carry the creative torch into the future.
    Gavin has a background in creative writing, and he loves to bring new ideas to the Magic multiverse.
    He’s worked on so many modern era Magic sets and is bringing new mechanics to the game with Commander and multiplayer centric sets such as Conspiracy and Battlebond.

    David Williams Will Out Play Out Bet And Out Cook You - Ep 409

    David Williams Will Out Play Out Bet And Out Cook You - Ep 409

    In this episode, I’m talking to the talented Magic player, poker player, and MasterChef finalist, David Williams.

    David first time play poker while at a Pro Tour many years ago. Through his love of strategy games and incredible skill, David went on to win a World Series of Poker bracelet and made a career from professional poker.

    David is fiercely competitive, and smart enough to dismantle any game he gets his hands on. And that’s how David got onto the show MasterChef, and beat out a room fill of competitors to make it to the finals.

    He’s been a pillar of the Magic community for a long time and I’m so happy to have him on the show.

    It was really cool hearing stories of David’s journey.

    It just goes to show that being competitive and thinking strategically bring success in many situations, from Magic, to poker, to competitive cooking shows.

    David is active on social, and you can connect with him on Twitter @dwpoker and also on Instagram dwpoker

    I hope you enjoy my interview with David Williams.
