Best swallowing podcast out there

I am 100% in love obsessed with this podcast. Theresa is so real and tells it like it is. I am so appreciative to have her and her guests on every week and have learned more from this podcast than my 20 years in the field. Keep it up!

Game Changer!

This podcast has helped me to take my clinical practice to the next level. I’ve learned things I didn’t know I needed to know! (Have you heard of fast and slow-twitch muscle fibers? Yeah, I hadn’t either.) Theresa and her guest experts discuss a wide range of topics related to dysphagia using EBP- so you don’t even have to double check the internet to make sure what you’re hearing isn’t opinion, preference, and/or total BS. More importantly though, it’s super entertaining to listen to. Theresa is hilarious and the discourse is relaxed and conversational (but still organized and cohesive, much like a well formed bolus.) Simply put, I cannot get enough of Swallow Your Pride!

Comprehensive, Engaging, and Valuable

Every Sunday I have to drive for three hours to get my son to his father, and have gotten in the habit of listening to Swallow Your Pride. Those drives used to be spent feeling (honestly) sad, and scrolling through terrible radio. I finally downloaded Swallow Your Pride. I have been practicing in acute care for six years, and consider myself well-trained and knowledgeable about dysphagia- Swallow Your Pride makes me laugh, generate questions, and and think critically. It is an absolute treat.

While listening, I often have the urge to pull over and take notes (consider measuring cough strength with that client!), and it *literally* has changed the way that I have managed some of my cases as a medical SLP.

I highly recommend Swallow Your Pride - Theresa's interviewing skills and open-ended questioning of each esteemed guest gives listeners the opportunity to experience so many valuable perspectives of our field. We can hear Dr. Martin Brodsky's views on social media, learn about diagnostic criteria of Muscle Tension Dysphagia, and hear from some of the best clinicians at varying levels of care.

If you're a medical SLP or you work with medical SLPs, download this one. Because how can you know everything?
