    Young Lincoln and Intelligent speech in New York

    Saturday, June 29th 11 am – 7 pm The Centre for Social Innovation, New York https://www.intelligentspeechconference.com/shop/
    Podcasts entertain and inform millions of people every day. Coming through our headphones, podcasters are like friends joining us as we go about our daily routines and sometimes they’re even the last voice we hear at night as we put head to pillow. For years podcasts have been DIY labors of love but as the industry becomes increasingly dominated by celebrity personalities, professional broadcasters and large corporate production houses, in many places independent voices are being drowned out. But the Agora Podcast Network remembers what the beating heart of the podcast medium really is and so is proud to be the home of shows that are lovingly created in homes or sheds, places full of life and improvisation rather than sterile studios. Its proud to have hosts with individual voices of diverse opinion, discussing topics spanning history and politics, culture, literature and science. With over a million curious and discerning listeners downloading Agora podcasts each month, the proof of this winning formula is in the pudding.


    Saturday, June 29, 2019 for an event that will bring together many of internet’s best podcasters for a day of live podcast recordings, open tables, Q and As and seminars at The Centre for Social Innovation, Chelsea in New York. It’s an opportunity for listeners to meet the creators of some of their favourite podcasts and to maybe even get on mic.

    State of the podcast address and American Innovations.

    What a tumultuous last three months I’ve had. Unbeknownst to just about everyone, my Visa application to live and work in the US was turned down in May, simply the immigration officer said I didn't have strong enough ties to the UK! This prompted a prolonged period of panic, when I thought, the walls were literally closing in... For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Ep: 19 Young Lincoln part 1 with Jonathan F. Putnam

    Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernised the economy.


    Born in Hodgenville, Kentucky, Lincoln grew up on the western frontier in Kentucky and Indiana. Largely self-educated, he became a lawyer in Illinois, a Whig Party leader, and was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives, in which he served for eight years.

    Sarada Peri is a speechwriter and communications strategist. She was Special Assistant to the President and Senior Speechwriter for President Barack Obama. Prior to joining the White House, she was a Principal at West Wing Writers, where she worked with corporate, political and nonprofit clients on speechwriting, speech delivery, op-eds, books, and message strategy. She was also a member of the 2012 and 2016 Democratic National Convention speechwriting teams.


    As the political season heated up in the fall of 2015, the rhetoric against minorities and immigrants got ugly. Many people, including the White House, were concerned and even fearful. So when President Obama was asked to speak at a naturalization ceremony at the National Archives, we speechwriters saw an opportunity. On this episode she discusses the speech she wrote for President Obama and what it meant for her.
