3: Trippin’ on Tropes
0:00 -:--
Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast! TW: trauma, PTSD, sexual violence, rape, combat violence, child abuse, death, suicide, social anxiety, depression. In our third episode, we continue our discussion of trauma in the Magic Multiverse. Alex Newman explains where Magic: the Gathering – like a lot of media – both succeeds and fails in using trauma as a “superhero origin story”. The guys then discuss how that functions in relation to the neo-walkers sparking in Magic Origins. Finally, the guys offer a little “goblin guid-ance”, as we have the first show mailbag and things get goofy. You can find the hosts on Twitter: Joe Redemann at @Fyndhorn, Hobbes Q. at @HobbesQ, and Alex Newman at @AlexanderNewm.
