If you're a Seth Godin junkie like I am, you've probably listened to dozens of interviews, and live speeches. I think you'll find this conversastion is truly unique, as we approached many of his favorite topics from a completely different perspective.

We discussed marketing in relation to magic and professional magicians, the state of the education industry and where it might be going, what it means to be a teacher, how to connect with someone you don't understand, and Seth shares his story of a chance encounter with lasting impact. It's the first time he's ever told this story publicly, and trust me, it's bananas.
