Magicians Phil and Ian are joined by Magic Circle President Scott Penrose. As well as talking about illusions, nuclear bunkers and the magic circle Scott explains the importance of professionalism in our craft (or lack of). The magicians discuss the familiar topic of books Vs DVDs (and Scott's YMC lecture on books!). As well as all that the conversation touches on the future of magic and where you should invest your time to make sure you are set for changing trends and technology, and, tips on how to shape your character so that you can entertain anyone from CEOs one day to teenagers the next. Also on a deeper note the conversation talks about the importance of creating wonder and how this is the cornerstone of magic.
