Samara chats with the Tony Award-winning performer and TED talk star known for chameleoning into characters, about how each of us invents and reinvents our voice—to stand out, to fit in, to stay safe, to take risks. She shares the secret to public speaking, how to overcome perfectionism (which is “a form of self-abuse and abuse of the art”), and brings with her about a dozen extra pod guests to drop their own mind-blowing wisdom.
