Growing a business and producing a live show using the art of magic and theater with Tobias Beckwith

Podcast Farm

This week on Be On Air we had the honor of speaking with Tobias Beckwith. He is an author, producer, director, manager, magician, teacher, and speaker. Together we explored the power of words, identified ways to train for better communication, discussed what skills are valuable when growing a business and producing a live show and most importantly how magic can help everybody reach their dreams. This is a truly inspiring conversation, and we are delighted to share Tobias Beckwith’s insight into the magic of voice and theater. 

After earning his master’s degree and teaching theater arts at the University of Pittsburgh for several years, Tobias moved to NYC to discover what the real world of theater might be like. He landed on the management and production teams of the long-running Fantastiks and Oh! Calcutta!, and spent two years working on the original Broadway and first touring show of Sweeney Todd. Tobias began helping Jeff McBride develop his first full evening show in 1976, and in 1988 became Jeff’s manager and producer for all his shows. He has worked as manager for Jeff McBride and Marco Tempest for many years and has worked as both director and advisor for many other magicians.

"Communities, churches, organizations have to come back together again and become the village to help keep our children safe. We have to."

This week's episode of Be On Air amplifies the voice of leader, entrepreneur, surthrivalist, minister, author and publisher Dr. Marlene Carson. Her righteous devotion to helping the youth and adults affected by a life in trafficking represent how important this issue is for the world.

She has dedicated herself to inspiring people everywhere to take action against human-trafficking for the good of everyone.

In this interview we discuss how Dr. Carson founded Rahabs Hope of Ohio and became CEO of the Switch anti-trafficking network. She is one of America's foremost authorities on the subject of human trafficking as well as a member of the United States advisory council on human trafficking.

Growing your podcast is an internal battle just as much as it is an external one. So understanding self, shadow and what our dreaming subconscious does to balance our awake psyche can be key to developing confidence in your brand and amplifying your truths.
