No need to pinch yourself—you’re not dreaming. The very special guest for this episode is none other than Mr. Aaron Forsythe (@mtgaaron) himself. How can the gang cope with having a larger-than-life figure on their humble podcast? Will they manage to sneak in a Pick of the Week? What information can we glean about future sets, the future of Magic Online, and the upcoming Magic: The Gathering film? Is a third Un- set confirmed? Can they get Mr. Forsythe (as Jason insists that he insists on being called) to comment on the future of the Reserved List? There are quite a few lines to read between, but don’t pretend you don’t love to speculate. The typical format is abandoned this week in an episode that will have you sitting in your driveway to hear the end of. Join us for a very, very special Brainstorm Brewery.
