Promising and Sincere

Matt Bailey noticed how few resources in the podcast-verse are to ventriloquism and he chose to do something to help fix that. He plans to invite other ventriloquists and encourage discussion about this small, often misunderstood community. Especially now with Nina Conti bringing ventriloquism into a new light, this podcast has potential to be a desired and sought-after resource. This is a promising undertaking and Matt Bailey sounds sincere and positive.
