Always Informative and Educational

I really enjoy Discourse in Magic. The variety of performers interviewed is staggering and the wealth of information they share is astounding. Jonah is an extremely well prepared interviewer. It's clear he does a lot of research on each person before the podcast in order to ask the best questions. Keep up the great work.

Make Better Magic

This podcast has had a lot of interviews that go very much in depth, while others just don't go far enough. Has helped me think more deeply about the magic I like to do but why I do it in the first place. Jonah is an enthusiastic host who's love of magic and performing shows through. I can't wait for who will be on the show next.

Constructive Criticism

I’m only writing this because the host, Jonah, implored all of us subscribers to the show’s email list to bury a recent negative review saying he got a “good laugh” out of it. Honestly, I think that reviewer’s criticism had a lot of truth to it and it actually echoed the critical thoughts I had of the show.

I agree that without the guests, I wouldn’t listen to this show. I also agree that Jonah often times seems to not really be listening to the guest or will repeat the same thing that the guest just said without adding anything to it, or he will derail the guest’s story by trying to top it with a story of his own. In particular, I find it frustrating when he will ask a guest a question and they give a great answer and all Jonah has to say in response is, “I love it, I love it” or “Wow that’s great” and then he’s rolling right into the next question, making it clear that he didn’t actively listen to the response. I know that it’s hard to be thinking of questions and thoughtful responses while recording the show, but plenty of other podcasts or talk shows do this better.

That previous review probably could have been written more positively, but there is truth that there is room for improvement on this show. That being said, I’m happy that this show exists and I enjoy learning from the wonderful guests that appear on the show. Listen to the constructive criticism and use it to make the show better, just as we listen to our audiences!
