Episode 175: #ChallengeYourself is a motivational project created by Dublin-based Simon Walsh of the award winning diaryofastutterer.com. The premise is simple, write down a speaking challenge for yourself, take a photo, share it on social media, and hashtag it #challengeyourself. Simon then takes a bunch of the photos and creates a collage which he posts on his blog and shares on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.

“I wanted to create a board of inspirational messages that could be used to show others how people are challenging their stutter every day in many different ways.”, share Simon on a blog post about the stuttering challenge. “What has happened since has shown me that the stuttering community around the world are far more inspiring than I had ever imagined.”

On this episode, I speak with Simon about the challenge, his favourite submissions, and podcasting!
