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

In our thirty-ninth episode, the goblin crew is back together to talk about the magical, mystical Planeswalker spark and what potential it holds both for Magic: the Gathering lore and our own lives. We discuss Space Jam, Malcolm Gladwell, defenestration, road rage, and one Mr. N. “Nicky B” Bolas’s machinations, as we give an overview of the evolution of the spark from its humble beginnings to today.

For some of the background research behind this episode, check out Joe’s article on Hipsters of the Coast.
