Please educate this goofus me. I have a regular computer, and older Dell desktop model. It plays with no problem youtube videos, etc.. But when I go to play the FCM "podcast" on my computer, nothing happens. How do I get a "podcast" to play on a "regular" computer that has only "Windows" player, etc.. If you could let this non-computer savy magish know how to do that, it would be much appreciated...
By the way, as a side bar, see the Grand Rapids Press last Sunday article on Michigan's old FISM winner Rick Merrill. The article is posted on the paper's web site. It mentions his going to Taylor University. Rick's act, in addition to being of an incredible skill level, is totally clean as well. Glad to see he is going to be on the new nationally broadcast Masters of Illusion series beginning in January on my Network TV.

MagicBus -

Download iTunes...then go to http://www.themagicpodcast.com and find the "subscribe" button. Then they will download.

That's my advice...being a mac guy. (and that works on my Dell at work).

If that doesn't work...we may have to create a CD service. Suppose we can put out "Season 1 - 2008 edition."

The webpage uses QuickTime to play the podcast. The most likely problem is that you either don't have QuickTime installed on your computer, or you have an old version. You can get it free, with or without iTunes, here: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

Thanks Brad, that is the information I needed. I will download it right away! By the way Brad, you were FANTASTIC on Now That's Magic! shows #1 and #2 (www.ChristianMagician.org). Program number 2 has been airing all this week locally on Comcast Channel 12 in SW Michigan at 4PM, 9PM and 4AM. I cannot thank you again for the wonderful footage you provided to us to use!

You're welcome!

On the original topic:

Sam, I appreciate the tip on the snowstorm loads you use. I'll definitely try them out.

True and sorta a funny story. Just a note on the snowstorm- we did a charity program once on our area. Our last performer did the "snowstorm"- then walked out into the barn like theatre with the snow still streaming from his hands. I thought the theatre janitor/manager (sitting at the back) was going to have a STROKE as he in horror watched the confetti fly all over the theatre seats and floor... Anyway, be sure to stay on the stage if you do this... I ended up sweeping with the janitor for at least an extra 1/2 hour afterwards although I still thought it was hilarious at the time. Maybe that's why some performers when doing the salt pour often have a sheet underneath their performing area...

Sam offered some great advice. I ended up ordering $50 worth from Seo and I am sooooooooo HAPPY with them. THANKS SAM!

I know the interview was really good, but if Daniel DROPPED $50.00 on snow then it really was a GREAT interview!
Sam, thanks again for taking the time to share with the PodCast staff and FCM your words of wisdom... it is always great when people are willing to openly share what they have learned, practiced, worked and used to bring pleasure and delight to a crowd.

So many in this business always want to keep ALL their secrets!

God bless
