The HOVG Podcast: April Matthis


This week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen are joined by April Matthis.

The star of the off-Broadway play “Toni Stone” talks to the boys about how she prepared to take on the role of one of the legendary Negro Leagues player and what it meant to her and her family personally, shares what it was like hanging out with Negro Leagues Baseball Museum president (and good friend of the podcast) Bob Kendrick in Kansas City, offers up what she knows about whether or not a Toni Stone movie could be in the works and, yeah, dishes on that recent Drama Desk Award nomination she received.
