Yes, Nina Conti Really Is On The Radio

Nina is a lovely ventriloquist and I’ve seen her several times on TV. The monkey and granny puppets are the most well-known but her reportoire does include a suitcase of others. Going on the radio is an interesting experiment, 50 years on from the last time anyone thought this mix would work. I immediately found that the lack of visual cues made it easier to pick up the “gottle’o’geer”s. The writing is very good and makes up for this so I recommend going to the R4 site and downloading the podcast (or email me as I think the BBC site has moved on to newer shows).
