On this episode, Maria and Meghan record live from Honolulu, Hawaii ahead of the Magic the Gathering World Championship! Get all the info you'll need before the big event ($1,000,000 is on the line, people!) including deck predictions, who our hosts think will win the whole thing, and speculation about Theros Beyond Death draft. LET YE BE WARNED: this episode was recorded on fully jet-lagged brains and there is lots of off-topic discussion about Mary Poppins. How does that happen? You know, no one's really quite sure. But it is delightful, if you're into that sort of thing. A nice off-the-rails episode if there ever was one.
