Episode 17 Magic Podcast Teaser: The Time I Met Merlin The Magician

In this throwback teaser to Episode 17

I talk about my very first sighting of Merlin the Magician in Aspen, CO.

Traveling west that summer with a padawan in tow, we rolled into Aspen for two days en route to Las Vegas and Magic Live.

Seeing Merlin’s table propped up against a wall during the first day gave us hope we would encounter this mythical Aspen summer resident.

Contact established (eventually)… it was an epic four-hour visit which I will cherish as one of my favorite moments in my street performing and nomadic traveling life.

Spry and lively for a man who had attained an age considered elderly by most standards…

Merlin welcomed us to his table and set about drawing us into fascinating tales of a life lived adventurously.

made for a great episode of my magic podcast…
