We’ve been trying to get Tony Chang on the podcast for a long time and it’s finally happened! Jonah and Tony spent some time together and NYC recently. But this is the first time we have had the chance to talk to him about his history. Tony first fell in love with magic when he saw a clown magician as a kid. He got curious and he went to the public library in Idaho, where he grew up and found some books. They were incredibly discouraging. So he turned to some magic rooms on IRC in the early days of the internet. He ordered a Hank Lee book and read it repeatedly. His goal with magic is to create something incredible with imperfect means. You can create an illusion using blunt mechanics to achieve something impossible.
