Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast and welcome back to our special guest DeQuan Watson (one of the hosts of the Color of Magic podcast). In part one of a two part series Hobbes and DeQuan discuss Content Creation and the need for Intentionality and Marketing. When DeQuan met with the cast back in 2020 he had moved to full time content creation and continues in this role. We approached DeQuan after the SCG announcement cutting back on their competitive content in particular. While this is more of the focus of Pt 2 (sorry DeQuan hi-jacked the show!) today we look at ways for content creators to expand their audiences and improve their product!
We also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!

As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too.
