David Hira is calling it quits. He has taken a long, hard look at his life and decided that now is the best time to retire from actively performing regular magic shows. This week’s podcast is a fascinating look not into the career of a successful performer (if you want to hear that, then listen Click Here to hear that podcast), but rather the reasons why he feels he is ready to retire from performing. If you are one of those “older” magicians who wonders when it is time to hang up the proverbial cape, then you will find some great advice in this podcast.
