Interview With Teller

Wonderful interview with Teller about many things; including the utility of card tricks, the philosophy of love, and a moving tribute to Johnny Thompson.

Well worth your time:

It is the best series of podcasts in magic.

There is a hundred in total, and the 100th one (next week) will be an interview with David Copperfield. What is nice about these podcasts is that they are carried out in person rather than by phone. It makes for a much richer experience.

The inteerview with David Williamson is another great one worth checking out.

PapaG: Many thanks for posting this...I really enjoyed the interview, especially Teller's thoughts on the Magic Circle, "exposure", how to make card tricks stand out, and his affection/appreciation for Johnny Thompson. Teller's comment comparing himself to a cat cracked me up. For the time challenged, it's safe to skip the first 14 minutes of the podcast, which is mainly (and annoyingly) about a series of exciting interviews coming up. Still, a very worthwhile listen.
