I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'where one might speak' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I don't see how one could define the other.

'ill-will under pressure' is the wordplay.
'ill will' becomes 'odium' (I've seen this in another clue).
'under' says to put letters next to each other (below, in a down clue).
'pressure' becomes 'p' (abbreviation).
'odium' put after 'p' is 'PODIUM'.

'with' is the link.

(Other definitions for podium that I've seen before include "'Rostrum, dais (6)'" , "Stage" , "Platform or pedestal" , "Speaker's platform" , "Soapbox" .)
