Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore Podcast! We wanted to let everyone know that September is Suicide Awareness/Prevention Month. As promised, we keep Mental Health Links available every episode. But For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI's site.
On today's episode Hobbes has to eat crow (not the literal bird but I mean maybe he should...). Over the past couple of years Hobbes has been known to rant about Squee and comments that Squee has been done dirty. Well with Dominaria United, our lovable friend Squee (and his toy) get their own story. We were fortunate enough to have Dan Sheehan (the writer of this storye and also the cohost of the Commander Sphere podcast) stop by and talk about the responsibility of creating the world around Squee.
Again we would like to state that Black Lives Matter
We also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!
We also finally have a Linktree with all of our discounts/resources
