    This Week In Voice (Season 6 Episode 9)

    This Week In Voice (Season 6, Episode 9) is a very special episode - an interview with YouTube sensation / freestyle rapper Harry Mack.

    Sponsored by our friends at Deepgram (https://dpgr.am/projectvoice): the leader in automated transcription and speech-to-text for conversational AI, sales and support enablement, voice analytics, or any use case that requires super accurate, usable transcriptions.

    WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE THROUGHOUT THE INTERVIEW

    The interview touches on how Harry uses voice assistants in his personal life, and then proceeds to re-trace some moments from his career that Project Voice CEO Bradley Metrock discovered that led to him booking Harry to play Euphonious, Birmingham's music and tech festival taking place June 17-19.

    Metrock and Harry Mack "react" to some of these previous videos, which include:

    Harry Mack Freestyles Get A Standing Ovation | Omegle Bars 37 (REACTION) from YouTube reactor Scru Face Jean

    TRASH or PASS! Harry Mack (IT'S A PARTY ON OMEGLE - Omegle Bars 30 [REACTION!!!] from YouTube reactor LayedBak

    Inspirational | Harry Mack Freestyle (Omegle Bars 43) from Harry Mack's own Harry Mack Clips YouTube channel

    BEST FREESTYLER EVER! | Harry Mack Omegle Bars 52 (REACTION!!!) from YouTube reactor NoLifeShaq

    The interview concludes with Harry Mack creating a spontaneous song out of three words discussed over the course of the show...one of which is, of course, Euphonious, where Harry will open for Collective Soul at 7 PM Central on Sunday, June 19.

This Week In Voice is a must listen to podcast for voice industry insiders — and, for that matter, anyone interested in voice-first. Host Bradley Metrock curates a great set of questions and leads an insightful discussion among a varying set of panelists each week. This podcast is one of the key ways I stay up to speed on what’s happening in the industry, and I always appreciate the diverse set of viewpoints I get as a listener. Five stars!
