“Share Of Voice” is a podcast about the power of discovering your voice and sharing your truth in the process. Hosted by journalist Karin Eldor, each episode features compelling conversations with the wave makers and game changers on our radar. Less “how I built this” and more “how I make noise,” guests will share how they amp it up in their work. Do they express themselves boldly in their OOTDs or beauty looks, on their social media channels, or in every way, on the daily? It’s about creating ripple effects. Feeling heard. Shaking up the status quo and breaking way out of the boxes that society has imposed on us. We’ll discuss doubling down on yourself unapologetically, and raising your frequency so much that you take up ALL. THE. SPACE. Prepare for inspiring soundbites and mic drop moments, from the disruptors who have made a living from living out loud. You ready to get loud af?

Pip Edwards & Claire Tregoning, Cofounders Of P.E. Nation, On Building A Global Fashion Brand, Disrupting Athleisure And Finding Your Voice
In 2016, former co-workers and forever best friends Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning joined forces and launched their street-meets-sportswear brand, P.E. Nation.
While the Australian-based activewear label has garnered a massive following and “It factor” status thanks to its sleek yet functional, fashion-inspired silhouettes and styles, its capsule collection with H&M that launched in March 2020 catapulted them onto the global stage. (The partnership marked H&M’s first collaboration with an Australian-based brand).
The athleisure phenomenon took on new meaning when everyone around the globe leaned into wearing comfortable clothing at home: COVID-19’s lockdown inspired P.E. Nation to launch a genderless, unisex collection, called “UNI-form.”
They have also recently expanded into swimsuits, always inspired by sustainability and street style.
I spoke with Pip and Claire about the evolution of athleisure, how Pip pivoted from a corporate career to fashion founder, how they choose their fashion looks before posting to IG, and finding their voices (spoiler alert: it’s a constant work in progress…)

Madison Utendahl, Founder of Utendahl Creative, on The Power Of Letting Go Of Perfection, Toxic Clients & Fear
Ever since Madison Utendahl launched her own creative agency in April 2019, Utendahl Creative, she has infused her brand of empathy, storytelling and curiosity into every project. And she has been making noise: the creative work that her agency developed this past summer, as a response to the BLM protests and the new conversations about race and racism being had, was featured in "W" magazine, among "The Graphic Designers Defining the Aesthetics of Black Lives Matter."
Madison, whose impressive resume includes HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver", Refinery29 and Museum of Ice Cream, is vocal about her leadership style (she leads with empathy), and the need for a new kind of storytelling.
Madison will inspire you to start 2021 -- or even next week -- with a new mindset. She talks about letting go: letting go of toxic clients (and why you also need to know when it's time to quit, if you have a toxic boss), letting go of the need for perfection, letting go of distractions, and instead embracing self-love, transformation, showing up for oneself, and presence.

Simon Huck, JUDY Cofounder & PR Pro, On Making Sure You're Prepared For Emergencies & The Power Of Asking For What You Want
Simon Huck is the real-life example of a Canadian with big dreams, who made his way to the Big City when he moved from Ottawa to New York City in the mid-2000s. Today, after more than 15 years in the PR industry (he is currently the president of Command Entertainment Group), Simon felt the entrepreneurial itch to create a new product, in the emergency preparedness space -- of all places. He cofounded JUDY in 2019 with Joshua Udashkin, and in a 2020 that has been filled with a pandemic and wildfires, the brand JUDY is dedicated to ensuring people have the education, and the actual tools to survive emergencies and be ready for anything.
On the topic of emergencies, Simon also recently launched the podcast, "Emergency Contact" with his cohost and IRL emergency contact, Melissa Gray Walsh, which features celebs and their emergency contacts.
You might also recognize Simon from episodes of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and from the celebrity pages of the magazines Simon used to read as a kid growing up in Ottawa.
I chatted with Simon about taking a leap of faith, using your voice and asking for what you want, why everyone needs "JUDY" in their life, and his fiance, "Pip the Rip."

Jenna Owens, Founder of Fitish, On Pivoting From Morning Radio To Building A CBD-Infused Skincare Empire, Finding Fulfillment & What She Is “-Ish” About
I sat down to talk all things career pivots, CBD-infused skincare, seeking fulfillment and balance, and how to find your voice, with the always inspiring Jenna Owens.
It’s especially awesome to chat with a woman who has not only learned how to use her voice as a successful entrepreneur, but who first became famous for using her voice -- literally -- as the former cohost of the nationally-syndicated radio show, “The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show,” where she served as an on-air personality for 12 years.
The entrepreneurial venture Fitish, which Jenna launched in April 2017, began as the Fitish30 fitness program, and has since become known for its CBD-infused skincare line, which is sold on Fitish’s website as well as at major retailers like Urban Outfitters and Neiman Marcus. Fitish’s hero products, the “Tone Down” CBD facial mist and the makeup setting spray, “Don't Sweat It”, have become instant classics, while the “Dewing It” moisturizer is a constant best-seller. Fitish even has some CBD-infused products for pets! And although Fitish has a range of skincare products, Jenna loves that the CBD component of her brand goes beyond beauty and skincare -- it has healing properties, making her career as a founder even more fulfilling.
Owens might have left morning radio to manage her business full-time, but fans of her magnetic voice and authentic nature can now catch her on “Fitish: The Podcast,” with former radio cohost J-Si, where they talk about all the stuff they couldn’t on a nationally syndicated radio show (they don’t keep it G-rated, guys.)

Jessica Lanyadoo, Astrologer, Psychic Medium, and Host of “Ghost of a Podcast” Shares Her Experiences With Dead People, Setting Boundaries With Spirits & Launching Zodiac The Vote
Jessica Lanyadoo has been working as an astrologer and psychic medium for over two decades now -- but don’t get it twisted, not all astrologers, psychics and mediums are created equal. Based in San Francisco, Jessica has earned an engaged global audience as a one-on-one intuitive consultant and as the host of the Q&A podcast, Ghost of a Podcast. We dive into her gift of serving as a medium between the living and the dead (she sees, hears and feels dead people -- NBD, right?), what it physically feels like, and what actually scares her. (Spoiler alert: she’s not afraid of ghosts).
We discuss why she co-founded the movement, Zodiac the Vote (an inclusive platform providing people, activists and astrology fans with reliable content that highlights the connection between spiritual integrity, social justice, and civic participation), finding her truth as a member of the queer community and leaning into her gifts, some tips on flexing your intuitive muscle, and what rituals to partake in (and avoid!) this coming Halloween.
PS: Zodiac the Vote has created dope merchandise, with proceeds going toward supporting organizations fighting for voting rights, especially within marginalized communities. (And let’s be real: what better way to encourage people to use their voice than by voting?)
Hold up, there’s more: Jessica is the author of Astrology For Real Relationships, and contributes to many magazines and publications. Read her work and stay up to date on all her latest projects, here:

Koreen Odiney, Founder of We’re Not Really Strangers, On Creating A Global Movement With A Card Game And Instagram Feed, Finding Your Why & Speaking Your Truth
When Koreen Odiney launched the game We’re Not Really Strangers (also known as WNRS, pronounced ‘winners’) in November 2018, she was equipped with a laser-focused ‘why’: “To empower people to make meaningful connections.”
If you haven’t seen the card game, which is highly identifiable thanks to its signature red box and minimalist-yet-strategic design, then you’ve likely stumbled onto one of the Instagram account’s compelling posts. With a current reach of 2.4 million followers (and growing), the @werenotreallystrangers Instagram account’s images have long struck a chord with its followers, as evidenced by the amount of comments in each post. And with quotes like “One day at a time,” “Tell someone how much they mean to you, we all really need it right now” and “I’ve been better,” the account is resonating even more deeply during this climate of uncertainty.
After the murder of George Floyd this summer sparked much needed conversations around racism and unconscious bias, the We’re Not Really Strangers team dropped this quote: “If A Converastion Is Hard, It’s Probably The One Worth Having.”
Koreen and her team have become known for saying what’s on all of our minds -- without us even knowing it.
I sat down with Koreen to discuss how the WNRS movement came about, how she creates the threads and questions, and what’s up with her OG Instagram account, @chickenandwaffles.
