Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast!
Back in our forty-ninth episode, Alex and Joe discussed a goblin character that we had not physically seen yet in Magic: the Gathering lore – Krark, of the Mirrodin goblins – and the clan he founded and inspired. This episode looked at the Gambler’s Fallacy in the real world! Hobbes had been unable to join and was particularly upset as Krark is very dear to him.
So last week we returned to this topic with a very special guest (Orcish Librarian). We start our discussion of why we all suck at identify randomness and had to endure Hobbes’s wild theories on the development of Krark as it relates to a famous Mathematician who flipped a lot of coins. This week continues with tangents, wild theories about another Magic Character and a lot more on chaos.
Again we would like to state that Black Lives Matter (with a link to where you can offer support both monetary and not).
We also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!
As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too. For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI’s site.
