Hope everyone is having a great weekend! On this week's episode of Expose, we mentioned an upcoming television special on the History channel called Lost Magic Decoded. The special stars Steve Cohen, a friend of theory11 and one of the most successful performers in magic today.

Steve performs weekly at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, and his sold-out performances have continued for over a decade. The special airs Thursday, October 18th at 9pm EDT on History.

Tonight, you have a rare, exclusive opportunity to learn from one of the best as Steve joins us in hosting a roundtable discussion podcast. Each time we do this, we feature a different artist, and we answer questions submitted by YOU directly in this forum thread. Find out more about the upcoming special here, then post any question you'd like in response to this post.

Your questions can be about the show itself, the research, the process of getting a major television special, his shows at the Waldorf Astoria, or anything else that comes to mind. Limit THREE questions per member, so make 'em count! We will try to answer as many questions as possible in the podcast.

You have 24 hours to submit your questions - the deadline is tomorrow (Sunday) at 7:30pm EDT. One random member whose question is asked during the podcast will win 1,000 Elite Member Points and a six-pack of Players by Daniel Madison, our newest playing cards released this past week.

Excited and energized to host an amazing discussion based on your submissions! Go for it.

UPDATE :: Time is up, and the podcast has been posted! See the results here.
