Episode 184: Let’s meet the Broca Brothers! Hailing from the Netherlands, Hille and Stuart have been producing fantastically useful tips on how to keep in control of your stuttering as well as dealing with all the emotional stuff that comes with living with stuttering. We chat about how the Broca Brothers went from severe, quiet stutterers to confident YouTubers.
We are living in a smaller world where thanks to affordable digital media, software, and social media,
anyone can be a publisher! Because of this, anyone can touch the lives of people who share the same struggles
and challenges no matter where in the world they may be. I even wrote an ebook about this back in 2009. Thus, you can feel less alone in your stuttering – and learn coping techniques – right from your digital device. Speaking of which, have you heard about Stutter Social? Chat with others who stutter in Google Hangouts! We currently host 4 Hangouts a week (full disclosure, I’m a co-founder). Check the Stutter Social website for details and our Hangout schedule.
Anyhoo, back to the Broca Brothers. Below are a few of their videos. See them all at youtube.com/brocabrothers.
