Simon is doing just fine. He is living in an apartment outside London and selling his decoupage artwork.
After getting helpful assistance from a lot of people in the U.K., I was able to find and record a conversation with our longtime friend, Simon Lovell. Many of you have been asking how he is doing and whether or not he might be gracing the shores of the U.S. again anytime soon.
This podcast was made possible with the able assistance of Scott Penrose, James Cooper and Jack Blackbourn who helped facilitate this Skype call on the meeting night of the Mid-Essex Magic Society where Simon was attending their weekly meeting.
