Nick Mason, from the Weekly Planet Podcast, returns to help me deal with my complex feelings about the 2016 film Now You See Me 2. The sequel to the surprise 2013 hit, Now You See Me 2 features more magic, more heists and more confusing plot twists than the original.
Maso is an infuriating guest. He answers my questions with more questions and loves nothing more than getting under my skin, pointing out the ridiculous depiction of my profession on the big screen. He also loves taking me on tangents so expect rambling conversations about Amy Poehler, how the magic industry is like porn and why some people hate magicians.
In fact, I got so caught up in the chat that I didn’t notice the faint crackling under our voices. Sorry about that.
