Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! Did you know that we have a whole series based around Profiles about Goblins? Apparently neither did we as we have only really Profiled Krenko and Slobad so far… So we felt we needed to rectify this by talking about one of our favorite Goblins (and the winner of Mark Rosewater’s Head to Head of Famous Goblins) Squee. Did you know a lot about Squee? We didn’t and when we went to look we were kind of saddened by the amount of Squee Lore that can easily be found. In fact his MtG Pedia entry is a single paragraph. So… what do we know about Squee (shout out to Jay Anelli and his amazing book you should go buy)? Let’s explore that as the hosts tangent from Squee’s Hidden Super Power to talking about how he was done dirty in our return to Dominaria. Hopefully we have not seen the last of the Goblin who rose to the rank of Nabob and is now Immortal. Oh also the Return of Squee/Bolas Buddy Cop and the amazing art of Tappy!
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.
