I'll bet you didn't know that Shawn Farquhar used to have a rather "rough" side to him and knew how to handle hecklers. Well, one heckler followed him home one night and burned down his apartment. Shawn rushed back into the burning building nine times to save people before the fire department arrived. And believe it or not, his heroics got him on the TV news which landed him some work on a movie set. That led to more work as a special effects consultant for many years in television and the movies. Along the way during our chat, Shawn shares one interesting story after another.

In this first chat of our two part podcast, Shawn focuses on his early years prior to competing and winning magic awards and his work as a cruise ship entertainer. You can read the blog, watch a couple videos from his appearances on "Ellen" and "Penn & Teller Fool Us", see some photos, listen online to the podcast, or download the MP3 file all at:

If you are an Apple user, then you can download the podcast from iTunes.

As always, your feedback and support is appreciated. You can leave a comment on the blog or with a five star rating in the iTunes store. And thanks for listening!

Scott, really loved your interview with Shawn. I also got a chance to spend some time with him in January, and he's a great guy. Enjoyed your great questions and hearing some more of Shawn's stories.

Thanks for the great job you do producing these podcasts!
