I have been very lucky to have Mike Caveney make an occasional appearance here on the Magic Newswire podcast. During those coversations, he has made mention of the Egyptian Hall Museum, but in this episode we get some of the real back story that we hadn't touched on before. In addition, Mike has just released a new book, "Classic Correspondence from Egyptian Hall."  Reading this book is like being taken on a guided tour through the historical files of Egyptian Hall Museum.

As a native Atlantan, I have very fond meories of seeing Tom Mullical perform at his magic bar on Peachtree Street, The Tom Foolery.  By now, most of our listerners will know that Tom has been battling lukemia over the last year and has been out of touch while he undergoes treatment.  The good news is that the cancer is now in remission and Tom is preparing to  renew is Red Skelton tinute show in Branson next year.  In this interview, we talk about Tom's love of magic, why he left it behind and how he became the living incarnation of  Red Skelton.

One of the highlights of my year in magic for 2010 was the opportunity that I was given to participate in Jamie D. Grant's "Send Wonder Campaign" in which I participated in his street art experiment by dropping off bottle #79.

Since then, Jamie has started yet another "Impossible Bottle Campaign", but there is yet another question to be answered. What ever happened to Bottle #100?

In this interview, Jamie discusses his interest in street art, how he combines his career in magic with is day job as a paramedic. Oh... and don't forget that he also writes a popular blog reviewing magic effects as they are released, "Magic Friday!"
