Podcast Notes

Calvin is a fascinating person with a lot of talent.  A young man that has spent his life learning about illusions and crowd control.  He is a master at knowing how to control his environment, the outcomes and all the while, entertaining everything from small to giant crowds.  We asked Calvin some intriguing questions:

  • How do you deal with hecklers and nay-sayers?
  • How can you control your environment and the outcome?
  • Did you use cold reading on us or no?
  • What books would you recommend?
  • And so much more….
