26: The Laughing Academy with Mike Lawton
0:00 -:--
Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast! In our twenty-sixth episode, Milwaukee Public Schools teacher Mike Lawton joins Hobbes, Alex, and Joe to discuss the education systems that exist in the Magic: the Gathering Multiverse and explain how he brings Magic to his students in the form of a high school gaming club. The guys discuss social-emotional development, how to get someone interested in playing the game, and what it means for young people to have representation in the media they consume. This episode touches on the lore topics of the Tolarian Academies, Urza Planeswalker and Barrin, as well as a bit of minor speculation on other systems of education in the Multiverse. ____________________________________________ We have launched our new Patreon!
