    717: Erik Tait - The Voice Behind the Mic

    717: Erik Tait - The Voice Behind the Mic

    As the host of the Penguin Podcast, Erik Tait is the “Voice of Penguin Magic.” Each week he shares the mic with other magicians as he talks about magic and the occasional ad thrown in here and there. More than a “voice” Erik is the “real deal” as he has his own creations and proven “chops” as he teaches and performs close-up magic. Over the past few years he has set his sites on competing in the World Championships of Magic (FISM). That meant several, and I mean several, practice sessions and performances that all led up to his appearance as a competitor in Quebec this past summer. It was worth it and paid off as Erik took home third place in Card Magic against a sea of competitors from around the world.

    716: Reza - On The Edge

    Reza is changing the landscape of entertainment in Branson, Missouri. Long a tourist destination for tour bus groups, families and the geriatric set, Branson’s demographic is changing. And Reza’s cutting edge show is meeting and exceeding those demands with regularly sold-out shows. Reza is a name that is making impact far outside of Branson. His recent tour and television appearances have astounded over 30 million viewers from around the world on networks such as MTV, A&E, The CW, PBS, Reelz, CX, Fuji, and Telemundo as well as live venues including the Alamodome (San Antonio), Villanova Pavilion (Philadelphia), and Mundo Imperial Forum (Acapulco), to name a few.

    715: Paul Stone - No Stone Unturned

    Paul Stone has been a mainstay in the world of magic without gaining the true notoriety he deserves because of his work behind the scenes. Paul is the driving force behind his company, SHOWSTEALERS LLC. Paul is an experienced Producer of hundreds of Corporate Events and Shows, amongst them in the UK include shows at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Her Majesty’s Theatre and 18 shows at the world famous London Palladium Theatre, including the widely acclaimed ‘Tribute to Siegfried & Roy at the London Palladium’ in 2008. Paul has produced Shows in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace, Mirage, Harrahs, Orleans and the Suncoast Hotel & Casino.
    The working pros know him and go to him when they need help producing a gala event. Not only a producer, Paul is also a trade show performer and creator of magic tricks such as “Overboard” which is a quality prop with endless possibilities and is in my personal trade show.

Great podcast hosted by an outstanding person!

I have listened to this podcast for some time and have always enjoyed it. This past weekend, I had an opportunity to meet the creator in person at an auction. Class act guy, and super funny!

MagicDoug ,

Brilliant!

I rarely get free time to listen undisturbed to The Magic Word Podcast but today, I did and... WOW! The interview with John Pullum was full of interesting stories, helpful knowledge and advice and kept my attention during the entire 70 minutes. I plan on listening on my drive back home tomorrow to more. Thank you Scott for making this available to us! Doug Anderson ~ Oklahoma
