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

In our fifty-eighth episode, Joe and Alex discuss Memnarch’s Panopticon from the Mirrodin stories, how that relates to the philosophical discipline and surveillance idea of the panopticon by Michel Foucault, and what that all has to do with those handy-dandy video doorbells we all seem to have on our houses now.
