Ok.. so I am working on several new interviews for the Magic Newswire "Sprit of Magic" Podcast. One of those that I may be fortunate enough to have as a guest is Uri Geller.

If you, as a performer in this field, had five minutes with him to ask a question or two, what would you ask? Has he influenced you? Has he not? What would you be most interested in hearing him talk about keeping in mind that we do our best to keep these chats on a positive note?

Side Note: I am guessing that we will not be discussing the possible future release of any products discussing methods, but knowing the type of interview that I like to do, I was hoping that this community might offer some positive feedback and question that would help to benefit and inspire future generations of performers.

Did he keep in contact with Puthoff and Targ?
when was the last time he bent a lampost?
who would win in an arm wrestling match - him, or Randi?
whats the most moving magical moment he's witnessed (non family/friend related)?

Where did he get his balls from? Seriously how did he deal with the pressure of being Uri Geller. How did he get into and keep in character?

Great questions.

In fact far better than most would ask any magician.

Does he still considers himself a psychic?
What´s better a clear conscience or owning a island?
Has he ever been contacted again by aliens since he got his powers?

How does he REALLY feel about his interactions with Randi over the years?
Blessings on thee, little man,
barefoot boy with cheeks of tan...
Outward sunshine; inward joy,
Blessings on thee, barefoot boy! :-D

What has changed most in the Psychic arena since the 70s?
Does he see the changes as positive or negative?
Why?

I'd like to hear him answer why he is appearing on a magicians podcast when he has implicitly denied any knowledge of or involvement with the conjuring community throughout his entire career.

Cheers,

Chris

Can't wait to hear the interview! I have to agree with mindpunisher... how did he keep his wits with all that incredible controversy around him.

Chris, I don't think he denies any involvement in the conjuring community. If you read the "What magicians say" section on his site its pretty clear. Plus he wrestled with Criss Angel on TV Smile

And don't forget that the Berglas Foundation presented him with an award in 2008 for "Services for the Promotion of Magic."

This is news to you, Iain?

My question to Chris is why he's in a magician's forum if he doesn't believe in magic?

My question to Uri pertains to rumors about another television show in the United States ... maybe it's too soon to mention this...?

1. Has he ever considered being a mentor/teacher for a "new kid on the block"? Like Randi was for Banachek/Steve Shaw 30 years ago?

2. Does he think that it´s possible for another person to repeat such a career - of course with a different back-story and different "manifestations" - in todays life with all the wide-spread knowledge, internet access, betrayal of magic secrets...?

Has he ever had someone in the audiance shouting out his exact methods, and how did he cope with them?

Whats his favourite coin bend? Does he sign them?

How does he make people "care" about the bends?

Why did he present himself in the beginning as a psychic and not as a magician or mentalist?

What is he today, after all that has been said about him, a psychic or a magician/mentalist?
