Published on Jan 28, 2013

Paul and Jason continue their trip across the country interviewing magicians about art, performance, friendships, rivalries, and other topics. This week however, we center the focus around a discussion on the public's perception of magic. While we felt confident that we knew what most of our guests would say, we were consistently amazed at the quality of the thinking and the terrific ways in which some of them managed to express themselves. Yeah -- we're all basically on the same page. But if you think you won't learn something from listening to these guys talk about it, you're crazy.

As with our first video on the subject of magic and art, we hear from Danny DaOrtiz, Brad Henderson, Richard Kaufman, Chad Long, Eric Mead, Lance Pierce, Gary Plants, Johnny Thompson, Michael Weber and Asi Wind. Any of these men could carry an entire interview by themselves, but hearing the "group" (such as it were) discuss the topic brings an extra dimension that can't be achieved with any single interview.

For us the highlights of the video are comments made by Weber regarding a soda can, by Eric Mead regarding "buying an act", and by Brad Henderson regarding the pitfalls of the "brotherhood" mentality.
