JudgeCast #107 – Code of Conduct

On this episode, we have frequent guest, L4, former Regional Coordinator, Smooth Voice Champion 6 Years Running, JudgeCast co-creator Sean Catanese on to talk about the new Code of Conduct document.

We cover why the document exists, what it says, how to report breaches in code of conduct and what it means if someone were to report a breach against you.

JudgeCast #106 – JAR of Knowledge

On this very special episode, we finally dedicate an entire episode to the JAR. This is must-have knowledge for L1 hopefuls, and really something every judge needs to know at all levels as the nearly all sanctioned Magic events that ever happen are run at Regular REL.

To help us, we have special guest L4 and JAR Boss Kim Warren on to guide us through.
