Episode 266 – Getting Inside Harry Houdini with Clayton T Stewart

May 25th, 2020

Seanorama and FastFretFinger welcome magician and comedian Clayton T Stewart to the podcast to talk about the late Harry Houdini. They break away the myth of the master illusionist and escape artist and cover: influence on the wrestling and vaudeville beginnings, how heavy his immigrant status played into his show and his everyman superman mystique, the supernatural and trickery, his escapes and comparing them to wrestling finishers, how he died and his history with Spiritualists.

The gang also talks about Corey Toews’ Meet The Geeks.
