“Humans of Magic” interview series: Bryan Gottlieb

“I love Magic so much, I want it to be presented for what I know that it is — and that’s the best game on the planet.”

I broke my recording hiatus after REALLY getting into the GAM Podcast, one of the finest competitive Magic podcasts around. Bryan Gottlieb co-hosts the show and is a poker-player-turned-bartender-turned-lawyer. So when the opportunity to interview Bryan came up, I knew that I had to go for it.

Here is our full conversation, in which we discuss:

  • Bryan’s childhood
  • The art of content creation
  • Career and life choices
  • Helping others in unorthodox ways
  • Why Magic is the greatest game ever
  • …and much, much more!
