This week Jackson and Daniel talk about goblins! One of the staple races in pop-culture fantasy, goblins have experienced a long evolution from their roots in folklore to their varied modern uses. Using goblins as a starting point, your hosts talk about the problematic ideas behind the concept of an “evil race” and how painting your world in broad strokes can lead to a boring story.
And of course, they wrap things up by telling you:
This week you should watch Better Call Saul
This week you should play Castle Shikigami 2
This week you should read Dragons by Graeme Base (or all of his books, really)
