Whyjohnny ,

A Tremendous Platform !

I had the great opportunity of being on StutterTalk recently to discuss my film WHEN I STUTTER. Chaya took painstaking care to ensure that my experience was first rate. I felt extremely comfortable and I think that allowed for a really free flowing exchange of ideas and experiences. Thank you Chaya and Peter!

Excellent podcast about stuttering

This is a thoughtful, well-made podcast by and for people who stutter and those who care about stuttering. It's also essential listening for any student or professional in the field of speech-language pathology.
