Vanishing Inc. is proud to share with you our magic podcast, The Insider. Interviews with the finest magicians in the world.

    Paul Vigil

    Today's guest is probably your favorite magician's favorite magician. 

    He’s considered one of the most influential thinkers in the world of magic.  He’s performed at The Magic Castle, every major Las Vegas casino and elite private parties and high end corporate dos. Penn & Teller refer to his performance as one of the most subtle and diabolical in the world of magic. It’s none other than Mr Paul Vigil.

    Paul and I chat about his time at The Retreat, a lecture for 3 people in a Las Vegas hotel bedroom (yes, really), he shares a Johnny Thompson story, a Channing Pollock story and talks about what it means to be "fooled by a gentleman".

    Richard Wiseman

    Today's guest is a actual real-life professor. An academic. A magician. A skeptic. A viral video creator. An author of best-selling books and proper scientific papers. It’s the one and only Professor Richard Wiseman.



    In this episode we talk about skepticism, viral videos, his early days in magic and books, a magic show with no performer, his appearance in a Queen video and the best hack you'll ever hear for checking your presentation software is working properly. 



    Here's the video he's in. Can you spot his arm?
