Boradcast on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 – 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern.

Hosted by Ryan Pilling, Inside the Ring aims to highlight the magic and magicians featured in the pages of The Linking Ring magazine, past and present.

This month Nikola Arkane, as seen on the cover of the May edition, will be joining in live from Ireland to share some magic with us. We will catch up on what has been a very busy year of video creation, performances, lectures, writing multiple books, and continuing her rapid growth as an international performing magician.

From The Linking Ring column Craft Store Magic, David Arch will also be live in the studio to talk about simple DIY magic, and how he looks at every object through the lens of a creative magic maker.

Card Corner columnist Mike Powers demonstrates “One-Eyed Palm,” an efficient and direct card transposition.

In between all that, as per usual, Ryan digs into The Linking Ring archives looking for hidden gems, and sharing interesting ideas. All this coming up on “Inside The Ring!”
