Permission to Speak

An education podcast from iHeartRadio

Permission to Speak is a fun and fiery romp through how we talk and what our voice says about us with Samara Bay, speech coach to the stars and public speaking adviser back when there was a public to speak in. Each week she interviews people who specialize in how we use our voice and people in the public eye who are USING it—what it took to find their voice, when it still wavers, the crap comments they’ve gotten for being too loud or too soft or too millennial or too anything because PEOPLE HAVE OPINIONS, and how to give ourselves permission to speak like we belong in rooms of power just as we are. Let’s destabilize the patriarchy together! Let’s talk about deep AF societal dysfunction and how it plays out on our bodies and voices, but, like, have fun doing it! Hi. This is for you.

Stats: Statistics are produced by Megaphone, Podtrac and Chartable to help Permission to Speak to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening.

Tracking and attribution: Megaphone and Chartable or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of Permission to Speak later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to Permission to Speak also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Megaphone may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Permission to Speak may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Permission to Speak is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
