Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark, co-founders of Vital Voice Training, are excited to share "Voice (is)" - a podcast where they have conversations with people whose voices they love to dive into the good, the bad, and the messy of what makes your voice YOURS.

Expect actionable advice about public speaking, confidence, nerves, in-office communication, etc, as well as deeper discussions on what power looks (and sounds!) like, how to let go of perfectionism and use fear to your advantage, and how to show up as your authentic self in a world full of unconscious bias.

Vital Voice Training is a voice, public speaking, and communication coaching company founded to help clients communicate with savvy, charisma, and confidence. Whether you are giving a speech, leading a sales appointment or a brand new team, pitching your big idea for funding, or just finding the courage to make your voice heard, co-founders Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark’s extensive backgrounds in speech coaching and professional acting give them a unique perspective on what makes people want to listen. For the client, the result is your voice: amplified (not just louder).

Casey and Julie sit down with Monica McCarthy - talented actor, entrepreneur, writer, and philosopher - to talk, well, all the things, from good acting to theatre history to the meaning of life, to favorite philosophers. 


  1. You can change your mind- whether you feel called to do something else, or something in your life just feels constricting, you have the right to change your story.
  2. Theatre is a playing ground for exploring humanity.
  3. Philosophy can help us build better, more self-aware lives.
  4. Studying structure, whether in language or ideas, gives you something to embrace or push against.  
  5. If you don't see what you are looking for out there, create it. 

Monica McCarthy is an actress, emerging playwright, Shakespeare coach, podcast host, community impresaria, public speaker, and messaging consultant. She is the creator and host of the live monthly events series and podcast The Happier Hour: Philosophy To Help Your Life Suck Less.

Monica frequently speaks on the topic of purpose and with organizations on the value of philosophy and community, including her TEDx talk Philosophy: The Life Hack Of The Future. Monica has facilitated numerous workshops on the topic of Creativity, Purpose, and Collaboration for organizations including: the United Nations Development Programme, AirBnB, Eileen Fisher, Starwood, Global Citizen and more.
