One of the most requested episode topics I’ve received here at Idea Channel is for Magic. The Card Game, not, like, Mind Freaks. I’ve hesitated because Magic is ... complicated ... and while I used to play a lot, I don’t anymore. So ... I’m out of practice. BUT! After some research, and TONS of help from Patrick–Idea Channel’s consulting producer–we’ve put together an idea about Magic. And it has to do with Jazz. If you’re familiar with EITHER I wanna be clear: we’re painting with a REALLY broad brush–both Magic and jazz are huge subjects difficult to summarize in any amount of time, let alone a fifteen minute video–so go easy on me with the WELL ACTUALLIES. And if you’re familiar with BOTH, you’re probably thinking - OK HERE WE GO MAGIC IS LIKE JAZZ BECAUSE IMPROVISATION and yes… but also we’re gonna get beyond that idea; what we’re gonna try to do is use each to explain the other, in an effort to understand some similarities, and one big difference, in how they work as systems. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
