    Hey folks,

    First time poster on TMD, despite being a longtime member of The Source. My name is James Hsu, I'm the co-founder of CardBoard.Live and creator of the Humans of Magic podcast.

    A few years ago I interviewed Roland Chang for Humans of Magic. We kept in touch. Fast forward to March 2020. In the midst of COVID-19, I decide to step into Vintage for the first time AND catch up with Roland. 2 birds, 1 stone.

    Here's our playthrough together. I run Roland's 75. He tells me how to actually play the deck. Much fun was had.

    If you like this sort of stuff, please follow my YouTube channel and/or Twitter @james_hsu. Cheers.

    Recorded March 23, 2020

  • For episode 44, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) join David P. Baum, longtime owner of a card and comic book store in Northern Ohio. He doesn’t have a personal Twitter account, but (Pop! the store has one, as well as a Facebook page and Discord, if you’re interested.

    Here’s the timestamped table of contents for your listening ease and enjoyment:
    02:29 – Dave Discovers the Magic
    17:39 – The First “Grand Prix” and SandCon
    32:18 – Origins 1995
    Total runtime – 45:39

    As just a taste of the content, here's one of the first things we talk about: Dave gets his first boxes of Unlimited from a sports card dealer and sells them at a little sports card convention without knowing what they are. He opens some starters and “auctions” some singles, including Demonic Tutor. Did he sell a Black Lotus?
