Mahdi Gilbert on learning magic without hands and how the internet is the future of magic - Genii Online

If you’ve seen Mahdi Gilbert’s YouTube videos or his performance on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us, then you know just how talented he has to be to craft his own methods in order to perform magic without hands. (If you haven’t seen it, go watch the video in the link above. We’ll wait.) In this week’s episode of the Discourse in Magic podcast, co-hosts Jonah Babin and Tyler Williams interview Gilbert on his background, how to present and discuss magic in the 21st century, his appearance on Fool Us, and what YouTube magicians need to do to break out into the wider public consciousness.
