You’re listening to The Starkington Podcast. I’m your host Bill Stark of TheStarkingtonPost.com. You can find The Starkington Podcast on TheStarkingtonPost.com, Blackborder.com, TCGPlayer.com, MTGCast.com, andTJCollect.com. On this week’s episode I sit down to chat with Ethan Fleischer. After weeks of competition, Ethan outlasted over a thousand competitors to be declared the champion of the Great Designer Search 2. For his efforts, he’ll be given an internship with Wizards of the Coast to work on designing new Magic cards. I can speak from experience, it is an awesome job and you’ll hear Ethan explain what his biggest challenges were, what he’s looking forward to, and how you can snag yourself a job at Wizards of the Coast.
Featured Band: Pagliacci
This week’s featured band is Pagliacci. You heard them to kick off the show, and you’ll hear them throughout. The tracks you’ll be listening to are off their EP “Death Worship,” and they are not for the faint of heart. The cousin duo features Shuyler Leehey (left) on percussion and Cameron Leehey (right) on vocals. I used to battle with Cam back in Iowa City when he was cutting his teeth on the Junior Super Series and I was trying to make it onto the Pro Tour. Cam is a good guy, and if you’re interested in a heavier musical endeavor, you can download the EP for free by contacting him here.
That’s going to do it for us this week. I’d like to thank Ethan Fleischer for taking the time to chat with us, and Pagliacci for being our featured band of the week. To find out how you can become the featured band of the week, contact us through the liner notes for the show or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Being featured is free and we’re always looking to highlight more bands with Magic backgrounds!
