163: The podcast of illusion
October 05, 2016 Steve Davis

The Podcast of Illusion is all about the great traditions of circus entertainment. Why do most of us love illusion? I think it is because most of us don't believe it is possible and enjoy being surprised, again and again, as master illusionists play to our weaknesses and trick us time after time. I know I was expecting to crack the code of illusion at the Circus Of Illusion, but I didn't. The man behind the illusion is Michael Boyd, illusionist, and he joins us now ... well, he was here a second ago ... We also meet, Daniel Gorski (juggler), Duban Nickol (visual, comic clown), Elissa Cadwell (Aerialist), and Stephan Le Forestier (mime artist).
