    It's Saturday night, and that means it's time for a new Saturday Night Contest. This week's event is the latest in a series of Roundtable Discussions. Each time we do this, we are joined by different artists who host an interview podcast. Who asks the questions? You! You can listen to past recordings in our archive.

    This week, our podcast will be hosted by yours truly and theory11's VP of Production (and all around cardistry super-ninja) Andrei Jikh. In tonight's event, you can submit ANY questions you want me or Andrei to answer live during the podcast. Your questions can be about magic, cardistry, our latest releases, upcoming projects - or anything in between. This is a rare opportunity to gain advice and ask questions, so make it count.

    Limit THREE questions per member. Questions must be submitted in response to THIS forum thread on or before 11:00pm EST tonight. At that time, our podcast will start recording, and at midnight, we will post the link in this forum thread where you can listen in and hear your questions get answered. We'll get to as many questions as possible.

    One random member whose question is asked during the podcast will win 1,000 Elite Member Points, 12 Holiday Contest Tokens, and a brick of our upcoming Animal Kingdom Playing Cards, available this Monday at 11:00am EST.

    UPDATE - The podcast has been posted. See the final post and link to listen here.
