Re: 346: Stan Allen is Not Mr. Nobody

Great podcast. I really enjoyed Stan's explanation of Magic Magazine's digital format strategy. Stan Allen, RK, Randy Pitchford, Kozmo and anyone else who publishes magic periodicals – my respect for what they do knows no bounds. It’s easy to take what they do for granted.

The Final Magic Magazine

The mail carrier just dropped off the final issue of Magic Magazine. I just thumbed through it. Everyone has their favorite part and mine is the Mike Bent column. A truly wonderful magazine and an amazing way to end 25 years. Magic magazines are like friends that come to visit each month. I'll miss ...
