Winning The WMCQ Feat. Lee Marino


In Episode 34 we discuss our joint pilgrimage to the WMCQ which included a great road trip, some Suicide Zoo and Burn stories, and exploring the new Eldritch Moon format on the fly.

We then talk a little Prerelease, followed by having on special guest Lee Marino of Denver, CO, who won the WMCQ in Lincoln, NE with Burn. Lee shares his battle to victory with us and talks about what it takes to be a Red mage at the highest level. We close things out with a Madness Red brew and our usual Loose Change segment where some new movies slide into the dock. Enjoy!

We’re looking to expand our current segments going forward, so please stay tuned for some positive development. Lastly, if you have any suggestions please let us know, you can find us here:
