You MUST listen to this.

If you are new to ventriloquism, or have been doing little shows at libraries for kids, or you've done bigger shows but you think u need to improve, this simple, nice podcast is something to which you must listen.

Great podcast

Tom, Mark and Ken are entertaining and informative. They impart years of experience to their listeners. If you are an amateur or just starting out in ventriloquism, this is a great resource. I would imagine pros will get a pointer here and there or get a chuckle while listening to their conversations, too.
