My second "Drive to Work" podcast (#113) is called "A Day In The Life" and it answers one of my most frequently asked questions.

My "Drive to Work" podcasts today (#114 & 115) are a two-parter based on a column I wrote called "Twenty Things That Almost Killed Magic" where I talk about twenty of the biggest controversies in Magic's history.

Every time anyone asks about the RL lately the response has been "I can't talk about it, and I can't talk about why I can't talk about it". Which, in my non-expert opinion, is a phrase that reeks of lawyers from On High killing the issue. Unfortunately.

I hold out hope that one day this will be reconsidered.

Introduction
Grew up in Cleveland.  Went to school in Boston.  Tried being a television writer in Los Angeles (with a little success).  Moved to Seattle in 1995 to join Wizards of the Coast to become a game designer and have been there ever since. Since 2005, I have been the Head Designer for Magic: the Gathering.  Met my wife Lora at Wizards. We were married in 1998.  We have three kids (2000 - Rachel , 2004 - Adam & Sarah - yes twins). We built a house in a suburb called Issaquah. All in all, things are going pretty well.
