EP143: Magical Scandal, Failed Romance, & World of Pigeons


Today we are discussing a scandal that is rocking the world of magic. Apparently a magician is trying to steal the tricks from another magician. We discuss intellectual property and patents, and why it’s hard being a magician, but how we don’t know what to believe. Is it all an illusion?! We also rant about whoever the asshole is that broke up a child’s lemonade stand, and fined them for running a business without a license. We also talk about a viral Twitter thread about what it’s like to fly as an overweight passenger. We talk about the shame, frustration, and embarrassment that comes with being a larger flyer. Plus, we learn about the “butt bump phenomenon” that makes consumers uncomfortable when they’re in stores and don’t have enough space. We also get the chance to talk to Danny Goldberg who wrote the book In Search of the Lost Chord, which explores the magic of the Sixties. We’re wondering if we can get back to the time in history when people felt they could make a difference through peace, love, and even music.
