Great resource for mentalists

This podcast is a great resource for mentalists (as the title says!)
These guys are young, but don’t let that fool you!
They have an abundance of mentalism knowledge.
As well as vast experience of performing magic & mentalism.
Thank you guys this podcast is great.

Fantastic resource for mentalists

This is a great podcast that explores mentalism from every angle: why spectators might engage more with it than magic, why it’s fun to perform, how to go about it and advice on getting started. Ashley and Aidan are wonderful hosts and it’s really enjoyable to hear about their experiences as established performers – thanks guys, and keep it up!
