Joshua Stenkamp and Jason Wethington recently authored an unusual and interesting book, "A Magician Prepares - Act One: Interview" that puts a lot of advice from some top professionals in one place. If you enjoy this magic podcast, then you should also enjoy this book because it is like reading a podcast. Even getting into the interview and after the chat is concluded, the authors talk about what they are doing to get to the interview and where they were going afterwards. As an overview of the book, it might best be described by Amazon:
"A Magician Prepares Act One- Interviews" explores the relationship between magic, art, and theatre through intimate conversations with 19 top professionals from the secretive world of magic. Each interview is an unscripted journey of personal stories, unique insights, and valuable advice in creating magical experiences for your audiences.
In the first part of this podcast, Jason brings us up to date on whatever happened to Kostya Kimlat's "Restaurant Magic Business", what is happening on the Portland, Oregon magic scene, then we get into the importance of working with consultants who bring you and your act to another level. After a while, Joshua jumps in as we talk about the book and their character development that is discussed in the book. The story of collecting the stories behind the book is almost as fascinating as the stories themselves.
