Spoken word... What's the ideal loudness?

Just curious about this. I've never really done anything outside of musical recording. I'm assuming for a final mix, you don't want the voice to be up near clipping level... Or do you?

What is the final product? When I do podcast work I bring all the voices to avg -24 Lufs then mix everything in relation as I go. When it is all done I bring the mix up to Avg -18 Luffs. That seems to be an industry avg for podcasts at least.

We've been mixing our podcast to an integrated LUFS between -17 and -16.
