The conclusion of my conversation with the Magician, Christian Au
This is part two of a conversation started earlier this week with a Magician and full-time University student, Christian Au.
In the first part Christian talked about his passion, the Magician’s code, and a little about learning the craft.
But I had more questions, like,
How does a magician find a gig?
When do you decide to turn pro?
And why are people so receptive to magic?
Plus, at the end of the show, Christian will actually perform some podcast magic on me, it’s a great Made For This first!
