Last year, Luis de Matos and Marco Tempest introduced a revolutionary new concept, and online magic convention with a world renowned line-up of presenters.  In addition to being able to watch live as the event unfolded online, everyone that was a member of EMC received a complete DVD boxed set  of all of the presentations and several bonus segments. This year, they are doing it again with EMC 2011! Find out how to win a free pass and why you'd want to register when you hear what Marco & Luis have to say about the second installment of this amazing online gathering!

On this special edition of the Magic Newswire's "Magic Newscast," I am joined by Brian Danie of Creative Magic (CreativeMagic.net). What I love about Brian and his story is the fact that he thought outside the box, both literaly and figuratively, as a designer, manufacturer and builder known for light weight props. Yesterday, Brian announced that he will cease manufacturing of all Creative Magic products. On this episode of the podcast, Brian shares exclusive details on how he plans to wrap the company, a story that brings him to the cover of the latest issue of Magic Magazine.

Brothers Dan & Dave Buck launced an all new magic conference in 2010 and called it Magic-Con.  Their vision was to launch an interactive conference for those serious about the art of magic, where you can share ideas, insight, and a common experience while working together towards the advancement of an artform.  The goal of the annual Magic-Con is to  provide a platform for magic’s smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries, and top performers and to introduce an intellectual mentality behind the art, science and technology of magic.  The Magic Newswire was very fortunate to have two roving reporters on site to being us a taste of the experience. Thanks to Alejandro Portela, aka "The Cuso" and Doug McKenzie for helping with this episode of the podcast!

On this episode of the Spirit of Magic podcast I am thrilled to have as my guest one of the most creative minds in magic, Jay Sankey.   Among many other topics, we discuss the impending release of his latest project "Bending the Real."  Jay originated the 'bending movement' in the fall of 2009 and because of his unique performance style, this has become Jay's most anticipated project ever! 'Bending the Real' is an inspired collection of 'low sleight' deceptions, each designed to mess with human minds from a different sensory or rational angle.

We step out of the box a bit with this special episode of the Magic Newswire podcast. Gary Vaynerchuck has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, GQ, and Time, appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Ellen.  Vaynerchuk has been described as "the first wine guru of the YouTube era", "the wine world's new superstar",and by Rob Newsom, a Washington State wine maker, "outside of Robert Parker, probably the most influential wine critic in the United States".In the July 2009 Decanter publication of "The Power List" ranking of the wine industry's individuals of influence, Vaynerchuk placed at number 40, citing that he "represents the power of blogging".  Now he joins us on the Magic Newswire to discuss the power of social media in building individual brand identity and his new New York Times Bestselling book "The Thank You Economy."  Gary says, "I feel that we're living through the biggest culture shift of our time. The internet, itself, is 17-years-old. It's just hitting the social part of its life. It's just like growing up. As you get to 13, 14 and 15, you want to go out and go to parties. That's what's happening right now! The internet is growing up." Find out why this should matter to you as a magician!
