You can’t trust anyone.
Particularly not author, entertainer and collector of scams Nicholas J. Johnson.
Scamapalooza attempts to separate facts from fraud as Nicholas explores the worlds of deception, illusion and swindles with the rogues gallery of writers, magicians, comedians and confidence artists that are his guests.
“Nicholas J. Johnson is the man to talk to about scams.” - ABC Statewide Drive Victoria.

46 - Women In Magic with Carissa Hendrix
I have always assumed that it must be hard to be a woman in magic. It’s an industry dominated by men and populated by old guys with outdated ideas of gender, young boys who got into magic to pick up girls and antisocial men of all ages who struggle to talk to ANYONE, let alone members of the opposite sex.
We have the organisations like the International 'Brotherhood' of Magicians and The Magic Circle that didn’t allow women to even join until the 1980’s.
But is the magic fraternity at hotbed of misogyny who see women’s only value as being sawn in half?
On this episode of Scamapalooza I talk to magician Carissa Hendrix about her extraordinary life and the challenges and benefits of being of a woman in magic.

A seedy look into the world of the swindler! I can't recommend it enough!
