Bandwidth: Talking Sense by John Bannon


A BBM EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD - Talking Sense is one of the most insanely impossible self working tricks we have EVER seen! You literally never see or touch the cards. The spectator shuffles their own deck. They cut a bunch of cards and count them to generate a secret number. They use the number to select a card and then it’s buried in the pack.

Now you empty your pockets and use the change you find to help you locate their card. Really!


  • It’s their deck.
  • It’s genuinely shuffled.
  • You NEVER know their secret number OR the card they pick.
  • There are no sleight, peeks, or ANY need to see the cards at any stage!!!
  • Works with a borrowed, shuffled deck in use
  • No sleight of hand
  • You NEVER touch or see the cards
  • Works over video call / phone call / in person / on stage!
  • Perform from the other side of the world

“So what can I say?  This trick is the best of Bandwidth and they are all super. Big Blind Media really nailed the fourth and final trick with the help of our favorite card magician. This is a money back guaranteed fooler. It’s a winner. Best of class! You won’t regret it… thank me later.  10 OUT OF 10!” Straight Talk Magic Reviews

"When you perform this, you will end up being just as amazed as your victim." The Magic Portal

"Talking Sense is a really strong, inexplicable effect that has all the hallmarks of John Bannon cleverness." Mark Leveridge, Magicseen Magazine

“One of the rarest of magical beasts: a beautifully crafted, totally self working, highly entertaining, magical masterpiece that will fool EVERYONE!!” Cameron Francis

“It’s another winner from John Bannon. ‘Talking Sense’ is a beautifully constructed mental miracle.” George McBride

“Talking sense is so explicitly fair that it appears like no magic or secret moves happen at all. And you still blow them away! This will work equally well on zoom and in the real world. I can't wait to use it.” Alan Rorrison

“Another killer, straight out of the mind of John Bannon and into your repertoire. Minimal handling (the spectator does everything) and maximum impact (you get all the credit). This is a fooler even AFTER you learn the method! Commercial, practical card magic simply doesn't get any better than this.” Mark Elsdon

"I've always loved the principle behind Talking Sense and just when I thought nothing further could be done with it, John Bannon created this routine! No moves, but maximum impact. Your audience simply doesn't have a chance!" Iain Moran
