Iris talks with David Shipman, Ringmaster for Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus
One of the best things about my job has to be the opportunity to talk to so many amazing people! From listeners on the phone in the studio to rock stars, and even the Ringmaster of the Ringling Bros/ & Barnum & Bailey Circus…The Greatest Show on Earth! David Shipman learned about the auditions through Facebook, but completely missed the audition. He called Ringling Bros. directly to see if there was any chance he could still try out... and look where he is now! He talks about the circus, how he got the gig, his favorite act, and how the childhood dream of running away to join the circus came true.
