The Vocal Fries is a podcast about linguistic discrimination, hosted by Carrie Gillon and Megan Figueroa. Each episode features one vector of linguistic discrimination (sexism, racism, transphobia, etc.).

We cover vocal fry (multiple times, but particularly in ep 1), Chicano English (ep 9), and interpretation requirements in the US (our most recent episode, ep 51).

The Vocal Fries is available on most podcasting apps via RSS, including Apple Podcasts (iPhone), Google Play Music (Android), Google Podcasts app (Android), Stitcher, and Spotify (if you already listen to podcasts on an app - it’s probably there).

You can find all the ways to listen at

Transcripts for some episodes are available at
