Partying with over 800 stutterers!

Episode #200! What a great way to celebrate this milestone: with stutterers from all over the world! Join me at the World Congress for People Who Stutter/National Stuttering Association joint conference which took place in Atlanta, U.S.A. There are a lot of stories from people who stutter in this episode!

I speak with old and new friends including Kylie Simmons who was recently detained at the Atlanta airport due to ignorance towards her stuttering; learn about the famous names in the dawn of stuttering research and therapy by Frederick Pemberton Murray, author of A Stutterer's Story; hear from first timers, "internationals"; someone who told a potential employer that she would do a better job than the other candidates because she stutters – and got the job!; porky pig tattoos; cultural attitudes towards stuttering; and more!

Episode #195: Stuttering and Mental Toughness - Whether you're keeping your speech tools in practice or letting yourself stutter openly, living with stuttering requires building up and keeping mental toughness. In this episode, I share my take on a superb article I stumbled upon about how mental toughness training is beneficial in all areas of our lives. Including dealing with the embarrassing moments a communication disorder can create.

After all, not everyone understands or knows what stuttering is when they see it. We still need to raise awareness.
