Episode 9: Dave Hammer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
This very special episode of SLP Trivia Fun is from the live taping that took place on Thursday, November 15th, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. During this wild ride, we were joined by Dave Hammer from Apraxia Kids (a leading nonprofit organization that supports children with childhood apraxia of speech). We had a good ol' time talkin' about one of the most popular board games that can be found in almost every speech-language therapy room - Scrabble!
Terrific Scrabble facts were shared such as what was the original name of Scrabble and how many tiles are in the American version of the board game (and the Italian and Portguese versions, too)? All of that and so much more. Trust me, you're not going to want to miss this 9th episode. Enjoy!

Episode 8: Sarah Lockhart and Sarie Wu from Ashland, Oregon
Did you know that August is National Coffee Month? Oh yes, it is. And we all know how much us speech-language pathologists love our coffee. So, it makes total sense that on this 8th episode of SLP Trivia Fun, we went all in on coffee - that magical beverage that brings so much joy (and energy) to clinicians. Joining us on this coffee-themed episode is not one but two speechie coffee fans, Sarah Lockhart and Sarie Wu from Ashland, Oregon. When the pair are not doing spectacular speech-language therapy with their clients, they host a spectacular podcast called SLP Happy Hour.
Did our contestants know how much is the world’s most expensive coffee? Or how about what is the only state in the United States that produces coffee? Find out the answers to these questions, and so much more, after you listen to episode number 8 of SLP Trivia Fun. Enjoy!
Episode 7: Jeff Stepen from Chicago, Illinois
The hot summer heat is upon us here in New Jersey, and what better way to beat the heat then with another cool episode of SLP Trivia Fun? Jeff Stepen from Chicago, Illinois is this month's lucky contestant. He's a pediatric speech-language pathologist with 20 wonderful years of experience in the field. Working with kiddos often means integrating board games into therapy, whenever appropriate, so that's why we created board game-related questions just for Jeff. In addition to the terrific clinical work that he does, Jeff is also the host of the wildly popular podcast called Conversations in Speech.
Board games are competitive and so is this trivia show! How does Jeff stack up? Does he know about the origins of some of the most poplar games like Twister, Operation, etc.? You will know all of the answers to these questions, and so many more, after you listen to episode number 7! So, what are you waiting for? Dig in!
Episode 6: Rinki Varindani Desai from Dallas, Texas
It's June and that can only mean one thing, it's National Dysphagia Awareness Month! Rinki Varindani Desai is today's contestant on SLP Trivia Fun. As a medical speech-language pathologist, she's a wizard when it comes to all things swallowing and she's also the co-founder of STEP, a subscription-based dysphagia education and training library STEP.
How does Rinki stack up against all of the unique (and silly) dysphagia-related questions? Does Rinki speak Hindi during the episode? Does Erik crack a bunch of corny jokes? The only way to know the answers to these questions is to listen!
Episode 5: John Gomez from Los Angeles, California
The 5th episode of the first ever season of SLP Trivia fun is here! John Gomez, from Los Angeles, California, joins us on this latest installment to talk about all things SLP movie related. In addition to chatting about fun (and random) movie subjects like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Star Wars, he tells us about the work he does as a documentary filmmaker. Yup, you read right - not only is John a spectacular SLP, he's also the spectacular filmmaker behind the award winning documentary called When I Stutter.
Does John answer all of the SLP Trivia Fun questions correctly? Does John join Erik in an impromptu singing of Aladdin's "A Whole New World?" All of these question, and more, will be answered once you give episode 5 a listen!
