What’s this all about?Welcome to the Patreon page for the magicians advice podcast. A podcast focussing on giving real, honest advice from working magicians. Phil and Ian host the friendly fortnightly magical podcast and are often joined by other working magicians from around the globe. All the conversations are aimed at helping out those who want to develop their magic.
Who are Phil and Ian?Phil Taylor and Ian Brennan are both working magicians based in Birmingham. They met around 6 years ago at a small magic club called 3SM and have shared a passion for making the magic they perform the best it can be. Phil is from Birmingham and is a father to two girls (Nel and Fern), Ian is also from Birmingham and father to two girls (Florence and Matilda). Both are family men and magicians who are passionate about pushing our art forward, learning from others and sharing that advice with the community.
The pitch:We love making podcasts and sharing advice with you and we learn a huge amount ourselves as we continue to do so. Unfortunately producing podcasts requires time and the equipment and hosting costs money. In order to continue to do what we do we are looking for support financially to help cover hosting costs and continue to upgrade the recording equipment. Rest assured the podcast will always remain free but if you contribute a small amount each month we could really start to expand the operation.
Why should you help us?At the moment we are running at a huge loss. Hosting fees and equipment all costs money and we don’t want to have to cut back on quality or number of uploads due to financial reasons.
Your donations will ensure we have the hosting space to upload the content and get it to all the correct places, as well as helping when we need to buy equipment like headphones or microphones.
If we are able to raise enough funds we can set up a dedicated website and produce resources, merchandise and various other things for you the listener to enjoy.
Finally the feel good factor, every donation showing support helps motivate us to continue to produce good content.
Ok, I can donate, what do I do now?Thank you so much for helping us magic the magician’s Advice Podcast the best it can be. There are a range of donation tiers on the right of the page, take a look and see which one takes your fancy. Thank you in advance, you’re brilliant.
Thank you for your time and your support.
