Help us build a great show by just showing up!

All of us will be offering segments on diverse areas of magical arts, new works, books, film, video reviews and all of this with a focus on YOU our home viewers! Yes we have a chat feature that allows YOU to talk with us and we will be taking questions and doing our very best to make this a great night of magical wisdom.

We encourage you to prepare a question or two for us to answer. You will have the opportunity to log in and talk with us via a chat feature on the website. The best part is that it is all free, complements of your friends here at the Magic and Mystery School and Murphy’s Magic!

On a related note:
