Audrey Mann Cronin is on a mission to stop the epidemic of filler words such as “like” and “so” that our kids sprinkle throughout their speech (and, well, some of us adults do it too). Audrey has created an app called LikeSo, which is a personal speech coaching app that uses speech recognition technology to help you get ready for speeches, interviews, auditions, even dates! We’re talking with Audrey today about what prompted her to develop this app, how to use it, and what’s in the app’s future. Plus our Bytes of the week!
