Episode 106 – Money Magic with Josh Janousky

You know him from his incredible Instagram presence – we’re super excited to have @JustJoshInMagic on the show this week. Josh became obsessed with magic as a teenager. It was an interest that started as a diversion from his rigorous training as a musician. But soon enough he had traded the saxophone for a deck of cards. As he entered college he could no longer afford buying magic and so began to create his own tricks – all of which were horrible. He would perform for kids at various daycares and preschools but realized he preferred the magic he did for his friends. He went to school at UCF which is the largest university in the United States.

Episode 101 – Real Magic with Jared Kopf

Our guest this week is a brilliant mind in the community. He’s a magician, a priest and a raconteur – we’re really excited to have Jared Kopf.
