Day 1 - MINDvention 2012 in Las Vegas, NV

After a little bit of a travel difficulty due to a layover in San Diego, I finally arrived in Las Vegas for the first day of the annual MINDvention at the Palace Stations Hotel & Casino. I missed the first couple of lectures but Gregg Lancaster and Bob Patilla filled me in on the details that you will hear in this podcast. I then chatted with Roy Zaltsman from Israel who will lecture for us tomorrow plus he will be one of the featured performers in the final night gala show. Roy talked a bit about the MARS convention (Magic At the Red Sea) he produces in Israel. One of the things he offers is a webcast of unpublished videos that is more of a sampling of some of the tricks extracted from the lectures featured at MARS. You can learn a lot from these free videos by subscribing to his newsletter at:

We wrapped up the day with an interview with Paul Draper who talked about his upcoming lecture tour and his long association with MINDvention as one of the emcees.
