LEO’s most recent cover story, “The Wizard of Old Louisville,” profiles Devin Person, a Louisville transplant with a very unique career. Today, Nov. 30, marks the eight-year anniversary of the ritual he did to “become a wizard” in 2014.
Person also hosts a podcast called “This Podcast is a Ritual,” where he interviews guests about magic and magic-adjacent topics. On today’s episode, “Four Year Anniversary Spectacular!!!! (Part One),” Person sits down with LEO’s own Carolyn Brown, the staff reporter/photographer who wrote last week’s story.
In the 51-minute episode, Person and Brown talk about how the story began (and almost didn’t happen) by chance in a Louisville coffee shop, how it developed, and what it’s like to report about wizardry.
If you’re interested in meeting Person and other local wizards face-to-face, Old Louisville Brewery (625 W. Magnolia Ave.) is once again hosting Wizard Wednesday tonight from 6-10 p.m. This, too, will be an anniversary celebration of the original ritual — with another ritual of its own, which will be recorded live for Part Two of the upcoming episode.
