JudgeCast #158 – Work/Judge/Life/Player Balance with Nik Zitomer

It’s important, when you have a podcast, to come up with great memorable titles for your episodes.

On this episode, we have fungus expert, L2, and prolific judge blogger Nik Zitomer on to talk about balancing out your work, judging, playing, and family life. We also talk about some of the advantages that Magic can give in all of those!

JudgeCast #157 – L2 IPG Tester Coordinator

We spend this episode going over a mish-mash of policy updates and news!

First, we cover some of the new IPG updates. Nothing earth-shattering, but some new changes to HCE, tweaks to Missed Trigger, some clarifications on DDLP downgrades, and some changes to the MTR which apparently ruined Magic!

After that we cover the L2 Tester position and how you can certify for it. We also welcome a new Program Coordinator to the program!
