Hey everyone!

It's Saturday night, and THAT means it's time for a fresh edition of a Saturday Night Contest. This week's event is a roundtable discussion podcast. Each time we do this, we are joined by a different artist or artists, and we answer questions that YOU submit right here in this forum thread. You ask. And we answer. You can check out past roundtable discussions here.

This week, we are joined by daniel+Madison, creator of Dangerous, Lethal, and star of Penn and Teller's "Fool Us" in 2011. Madison's signature style of magic and cardistry has been an inspiration to performers around the world, and tonight, you are invited to ask questions and gain advice from one of magic's best.

Post your questions in response to this forum thread. Limit of THREE questions per member, and you have 24 hours from right now to submit your questions. The deadline is 7:30pm EDT tomorrow: Sunday, September 30th. Ask d+M about magic, cardistry, his experience with Penn and Teller, and his upcoming project at theory11. During the podcast, we'll answer as many questions as possible, and the final recording will be posted tomorrow night.

One random member whose question is asked during the podcast will receive 1,000 Elite Member Points and a pre-release package containing Madison's upcoming (huge) release at theory11. So make your questions count!

UPDATE: Time is UP, and the podcast has been posted! You can listen to the 30+ minute podcast right here, right now.

3. Do you miss the life on the 'dark side' (as a poker cheat ;) )

If you were to go on 'Fool Us' again, what would you do differently?
Will cardistry ever come to a point that, like magic, there can be full-length shows based upon it?
When was your first time being filmed in color?

You say that you stay away from general magic, is there anybody who has influenced you more than others?

1) What goes through your head when you create flourishes? Do you have a creative process?
2) Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

What or who do you draw inspiration from when creating flourishes?
That being said; How did you eventually craft your own unique style in the realms of Cardistry and Magic?
Rumour has it that you got yourself in trouble at casinos a while back, can you elaborate on what happened there?

Good luck with your next project.
