The Voice Catchers: How Marketers Listen In to Exploit Your Feelings, Your Privacy, and Your Wallet Audiobook

The Voice Catchers: How Marketers Listen In to Exploit Your Feelings, Your Privacy, and Your Wallet

Author: Joseph Turow Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: May 2021

Your voice as biometric data, and how marketers are using it to manipulate you The first in-depth examination of the voice intelligence industry, The Voice Catchers exposes how artificial intelligence is enabling personalized marketing and discrimination through voice analysis. Amazon and Google have numerous patents pertaining to voice profiling, and even now their smart speakers are extracting and using voice prints for identification and more. Customer service centers are already approaching every caller based on what they conclude a caller's voice reveals about that person's emotions, sentiments, and personality, often in real time. In fact, many scientists believe that a person's weight, height, age, and race, not to mention any illnesses they may have, can also be identified from the sound of that individual's voice. Ultimately not only marketers, but also politicians and governments, may use voice profiling to infer personal characteristics for selfish interests and not for the benefit of a citizen or of society as a whole. Leading communications scholar Joseph Turow places the voice intelligence industry in historical perspective, explores its contemporary developments, and offers a clarion call for regulating this rising surveillance regime.

He follows the rules, keeps his head down, and never causes trouble. Grant does everything for everyone else and wants for very little. The mission always comes first, until she waltzes into his life. Taylor Maxwell is a wild card. A thrill seeker. A rogue wolf. She lives her life only looking out for number one, there’s little she won’t do for the next paycheck. When she gets contracted to steal a priceless heirloom from the vault of a well-known drug lord, she readily accepts. This time it’s personal as she knows the prize contains ancient knowledge of shifters, and its current owner is about to exploit it. Taylor has spent months cultivating the perfect cover for the assignment and embedding herself as close as possible. But the sudden appearance of Westin Force, a well-known shifter paramilitary group, could destroy all she’s worked for. She has two options: work with them, or against them. Joining forces sounds easy, but there is nothing easy about the strong, silent wolf shifter with the smoldering gray eyes who’s overbearing presence throws her off her game. Grant’s focus has always been on the team, but not this time. For him the mission has changed, and his eyes are firmly focused on the one thing he never thought he wanted—his true mate.
