Political puppet Chester Missing and his human Conrad Koch had a great lockdown
Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his “Other People’s Money” feature.
This week Whitfield interviewed political puppet Chester Missing and his human Conrad Koch.
Koch is South Africa’s most well-known ventriloquist and Missing is his most famous puppet.
Missing has interviewed most of South Africa’s political elite.
“The truth is,” says Koch, “with a master’s degree in social anthropology, talking to puppets was my only career option.”
