Episode 12: Journey Into Paid Performances. Close up magician Phil Taylor and Magical entertainer Ian Brennan discuss about how they got into magic and their journey to becoming paid working magicians. Phil and Ian talk honestly about growing up into magic and their very different stories and reasons for performing. They talk about how they first met and that they probably never would have given each other the time of day if it wasn’t for the power of magic to bring people together. They also talk about getting their first gigs and more importantly, first paid gigs, and how they moved on from there.
