This week we do something a little different – we have gathered together interviews from three content creators. All three come from different positions within the sphere of Magic content creators, different mediums, different audiences, and, most importantly, different experiences. In this episode we hope to give everyone an idea of what it’s like being a regular content creator for magic and give some advice for anyone thinking of getting into it or anyone who has just started out.
