The Magic Word
Scott Wells, a full-time magician and the brains behind this podcast, releases episodes of this show several times a week. On it, you’ll hear magicians talking about their craft, their experiences, and news on the magic scene today. One of our recent favorites is the four-episode breakdown of Scott’s annual visit to the Magic Castle in LA, interviewing all kinds of people who make the place tick.
The Business of Magic
Ken Kelly and Julian Mather are the hosts behind this podcast, which brings magician entrepreneurs all kinds of advice from other professionals. Marketing strategies, best practices, how to get the word out on social media, building audiences—it’s all there, and it’s all tailored to magicians and similar performing artists. It’s a new podcast, with the first episode airing in May 2014, but they’ve released episodes on a near-weekly basis ever since.
