Hello and welcome back to The Insider! Nice to be here.  I think this episode is a rarity. It's the first of a 2-part interview with the amazing mentalist Doug Dyment. When I was researching him for the show, there's very little online to go on. He keeps himself to himself. So I hope you enjoy spending some time in his company.  As promised in the show, here's a link to his site: https://www.deceptionary.com and here is the link to the questions to ask yourself about your character: https://www.deceptionary.com/performance.html If you'd not noticed, we're also trying video of the show now, so the video of this will be on the VI blog and on our YouTube channel. Let me know if you like the video, or if you prefer just the audio. You can drop me a line at damian@vanishingincmagic.com
Michael and I continue our conversation from last week. 
In the first of a two-part episode, Michael Close and I talk about memdeck work, an incredible video from the 90s of him performing what clearly is the best card trick ever seen on TV, how to get on Fool Us, mistakes people make when applying to be on the show and the thing about the ring… And sorry, I accidentally recorded using the in-built mic on my laptop rather than my lovely one. But, Mike sounds great, so hope that makes up for it.  Links: Demystifying The Memdeck - https://www.michaelclose.com/pages/demystifying-the-memdeck-targeted-training Best card trick ever seen on television - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zYLyjFwagk Garret Ring Situation explained in detail - https://www.patreon.com/posts/43691718
Ever wondered what Andi's first magic book was? What Josh's favorite book that VI published is? What George thinks is the most challenging book to produce was? All this and more will be answered in this episode.  Sorry about George and Joshua's audio. I tidied it up as best I could.

Welcome to this special episode of the show. Recorded live, yesterday evening. This was live streamed out to Facebook and YouTube and is an AMA with Andi and Josh. They were asked from really genuinely tough questions and some really interesting ones too. Oh, and I clicked the wrong button in the software at one point. Please let us know if you enjoyed this and if you'd like them to do it again. We really had so many more questions that we had time for. So let us know!

Ricky Smith has some chops. From creating the Cherry Control to the classic Any Card At Any Vowel, Ricky is super talented, but doesn't come into the spotlight much, preferring his underground bunker.  To celebrate the release of two sets of notes, we persuaded him to chat with us. Enjoy.

Today's guest started off as a street performing mime and ended up as one of the most-loved stage magicians in the world. Find out how Tina Lenart went from a raggedy ann doll to where she is today. Along the way we talk about creativity, character, the time she spent with Andy Kaufman and so much more. 
OK, yes, it's slightly shorter than the usual 30 minutes. But that's just the way it goes with a 2 parter.  It's part 2 of the interview with Piff. It's Piff. It's hilarious. That's all you need to know. 
The single most chaotic and hilarious episode of the show yet. The initial recording ran for almost an hour, so rather than cut out any, I've decided to break tradition and make this a two parter. Tune in next week for part two.

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".

John Lovick is my guest today. We talk about what a director brings to a magic performance, what good magic looks like, his Penn and Teller memorabilia collection, why being limited by a character is good for creativity and The Magic Castle.
