Welcome to Kitchen Table Magic! A storytelling podcast featuring the amazing people of the Magic The Gathering community.
I’m your host, Sam Tang. Join me and my guests as we share stories about what MTG means to us. How we got started playing Magic. The ups, and down, the hilarious stories and everything in between.
This is the Season 2 premier! And there’s ton of amazing people this season and I’m super stoked to be sharing their stories with you!
In this episode, I’m talking to Tim Shields, tournament organizer and founder of Cascade Games.
Tim and his crew put on a myriad of different large scale events, such as comic cons, MTG Grand Prixs, events for PAX as well as Dreamhack.
As a community, we don’t get to hear from Tournament Organizers very often, so I’m very grateful that Tim was able to find time during his busy schedule to share his stories with us.
Special thanks to Liz for setting up the interview. And special thanks Kris Ferderer for suggesting that I go talk to Tim.
