Don't Fear the Vocal Fry

Heben Nigatu from BuzzFeed's Another Round, at the Werk It festival in the Greene Space.

It's a thing. Or is it? We're talking about so-called vocal fry, and we're joined by a group of women who could give a s**t. We hear first from Manoush Zomorodi, host of the podcast Note to Self. Then, Radiolab producer Molly Webster leads a conversation with Brooke Gladstone of On The Media, Heben Nigatu of Buzzfeed’s Another Round, Lulu Miller of NPR’s Invisibilia and Mary Harris of Only Human.

Recorded live at The Greene Space in downtown New York on June 8, 2015, the event was produced as part of Werk It, WNYC's first ever women's podcasting festival. Werk It was funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, whose president and CEO, Pat Harrison, kicks things off at the top of this episode.
