    Episode 73: We're All in Recovery

    Episode 73: We're All in Recovery

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast. Today we have a solo episode with HobbesQ discussing Mental Health Recovery and Asking for Help. We had originally planned to discuss Stigma this week but that topic ended up being bigger than our prep time and also fitting for the end of #MentalHealthAwareness Month! Hobbes also tried out his fancy new microphone sound booth and realized that it works... almost too well... his very inhalations could be heard. He apologizes and we have decided not to eat him...

    Episode 71: What did you just ask us?

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! Today we kept things simple, which is good for our Goblin Brains. We answered questions from all of you out there!

    Episode 70: Angrath and the MtG Dad

    Episode 70: Angrath and the MtG Dad

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! For today's episode Hobbes is running solo and somehow barely mentions Bolas at all (and at least it's kind of relevant). Using what we know so far about Angrath, Hobbes discusses what being an MtG Dad means to him and how his relationship with the game has changed in the past 15 months.

    Episode 69: Davriel's Entity Distorts the Cognitions

    Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! For today's episode Alex and Hobbes discuss Cognitive Distortions/Common Mistakes in Thinking. We frame this in the context of Davriel's "Entity" which we know little about so far, but is a good analog for the mind. This episode really is all about thinking about thinking. This article is used as the jumping off point for discussion and can be a resource to learn more!

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.
