ADVICE TO MY DAUGHTER 7: MAGIC

by Lou Markos on October 9, 2014

There’s a wonderful moment in the TV movie, Merlin, when history’s most famous wizard impresses a young lady by causing the moon to disappear from the sky and then reappear as a shiny disk running through the fingers of his right hand.

The City Podcast: The History of Fashion

by Timothy Motte on September 29, 2014

Featuring: Megan Mueller, Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Cate MacDonald, Dr. Holly Ordway
