LJ Rich is a classically-trained composer, music technologist and journalist who has recently started speaking publicly about her synaesthesia and perfect pitch. Everything in LJ's world is musical, and she shares some of her extraordinary experiences in this exclusive interview – which includes an original composition based on part of this conversation, and a 'glitching session' with Leila that transforms the streets of London into a gloriously strange living soundscape.

In this episode Leila meets magician Mike Stoner to talk weddings, podcasts, telepathy, making things interesting, choosing volunteers – and how magicians need to master the art of *selling* before they even pick up a pack of cards. Mike brings some tricks along, and needless to say, Leila's mind is blown. More about Mike at: www.magician-4-hire.co.uk and the Hack Circus project at hackcircus.com
