It’s great to see young ventriloquists take part in promoting the art of ventriloquism and that’s why I was very pleased to receive this note from Matt Bailey:

Hello Mr. Willinger

As a student of Ventriloquism for well over four years now, I have loved our art and enjoyed becoming friends with many members of our community. Vents have helped me tremendously, so I decided to give something back to our large family.

I decided to start doing a weekly podcast regarding all things ventriloquism. I want this to be a place where other vents can talk shop and enjoy each others’ ideas regarding our art. This first episode contains just my thoughts on character development as well as my thoughts for what the show could become.

I want people to call in, email, send in thoughts or topics for discussion. There are many podcasts where magicians get together and talk about everything pertaining to that art, but nothing on a consistent basis for Ventriloquists. It is my hope that this program becomes a forum for creativity as well as a teaching tool to all newcomers. The email I have set up for the podcast is

I have always respected your work and Ventriloquist Central. I enjoy reading the site as often as I can, and I know that vents like to communicate through you. It is my hope that you would be willing to post this podcast on your website for all of your visitors to listen to.

One last thing, I would absolutely love to interview you for a future episode. If you are interested please let me know.

Thank you for your time and I hope you like the Podcast!

Take Care,
Matt Bailey
