Jason Ladanye

Episode 22: Elliott sits down with card magician and author of Confident Deceptions, Jason Ladanye. They discuss everything from his childhood as a touring blues musician in high school to their shared interests in suits and the NBC show Hannibal. Along the way, Jason shares insights into how to present gambling material, making consistent character choices, and storytelling in magic. Even though this one is long, you’ll want to listen all the way to the end, where Jason shares two fantastic stories from times he was fooled by his mentor, Darwin Ortiz.

Great episode! Listened to it twice.

The tension generated by Ladanye’s Split Second routine is almost too much to take.

Great insight’s into character development.
