In this episode, Whase Boothi (Sean) and Delph Fibre (Phil) spoil the heck out of the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens – go watch the movie before listening to this. We can’t even provide notes here because they will spoil events and characters in the movie, but we do talk a little bit of Magic: the Gathering – and where else can you hear such a fine Carrie Fisher impression?
Nate, Phil, and Sean talk with Jason Alt about value white cards, #MTGFinance, and many other topics! This is part 1, part 2 is coming soon!
