Zach, I think that's way out of line. How many episodes has Chapin been on the Magic Show? He was THE reason that I watched those videos. He has also appeared on the Taps podcast more than a few times.

If you are replying to me, Nina, then I think everyone is stretching my "more serious" line way too far. A more serious podcast than the Eh Team, the edgiest show on the Internet, is not going to be a podcast that's on the other side of the spectrum. If you liked my Gary Wise interview, which I think you did, that's the type of vibe I am aiming for in my future project.

Don't get me wrong. The format of THIS show will never change. We have been one of the most popular podcasts because of who we are and we are not looking to change that. However, it is crazy to assume that as the owner of Mana Deprived, I will only be looking to develop one podcast.

Thanks for listening. Seriously, I think the Eh Team podcast has become so popular that it has completely overshadowed this interview that I am extremely proud of, so again, thank you SO MUCH for listening. And I will try my best to revive Canadian Magic. You can count on that.

Thanks for the kind words, Madd Mattt! I personally did not like the cast as much as our previous episodes, but I am glad someone else did!

Naw, the podcast was not SO bad that MTGCast had to take it down. The people over there are on vacation.

Nice to see you here, Ian. This is probably not your type of podcast. I am in the works of getting people to do a more serious one and hopefully, that one will be more to your taste.

You can get our latest episode at MTGCast.com. I never thought this would happen so soon, but so many people have been downloading episodes of our podcast this month that the bandwidth has been exceeded. I am looking into upgrading my hosting plan as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.
