The Swallow Your Pride Podcast was created with the purpose of diving deeper into the issues that speech-language pathologists face when working with patients with swallowing disorders. We’ll discuss many controversial topics in order to provide the LATEST evidence-based treatment strategies, and create a community of dysphagia clinicians who want to consume incredibly valuable insight and information. Our goal is to allow you to #swallowyourpride, and be open and willing to try the latest in evidence based treatment approaches by learning from experts and researchers in our field in order to create the best outcomes for our patients who need it most. The Swallow Your Pride Podcast is hosted by Theresa Richard, M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-S, a Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. Theresa owns a mobile FEES company that services all of NY, PA, and NJ. She also provides FEES training and consulting. Theresa has a unique way of spreading digestible, evidence-based information so that clinicians of all levels of experience can implement it with their patients immediately.

Motivating and educational
For a medical SLP, this podcast is wonderful!! I’ve been a practicing SLP for over 20 years, and it can be easy to get into a rut feeling comfortable that I know what I need to know. But I DON’T want to be that therapist. I have listened since the beginning, but often found it hard to carve out time for it. Now I listen on my way into work, and I arrive energized and passionate to start the day. I can neither confirm nor deny that I recently changed jobs just in order to have time to listen to Theresa and her guests on my commute, but it works for me and it will work for you too!
Want to learn about swallowing? Be ready for career changing knowledge 🤯! The amount of information here is ridiculous. And it’s all FREE! If you love what’s offered here, go join the MedSLP Collective as well. You will NOT regret!
Love the info! But not “awesome”
Great variety of topics and appreciate what I have learned to apply directly to my practice. However, the continuous use of the word “awesome” to respond to the guest is over used and distracting. In the first few minutes of the High Flow episode, it was used numerous times. Please keep sharing the knowledge but find a new word as an interviewer!
