Stuttering conferences in India and Australia

Episode #131: We take a trip around the world in this episode! But first, my friend and Stutter Social teammate, Sam Dunsiger, opens the show in an Italian restaurant here in Toronto. Sam shares a story about bumping into an old friend and for the first time being able to openly talk about his stuttering. Then we travel to India where I speak with JP Sunda who shares his experience co-organizing the India’s first stammering conference. Then we hop over to Australia to chat with previous Stuttering is Cool guest, Grant Meredith, who shares his experiences at, well, a recent stuttering conference in Australia! And a bit of stuttering research Down Under that’s making practical uses outside of stuttering.

  1. I saw your comment on today’s Stuff Christians Like. I think about that a lot how I’m God’s matrespiece even though I have ADD, OCD, and Anxiety Disorder. So much is hard for me it’s taken me five years to graduate, no extra majors or minors, just a normal program. And this morning it took me three hours to take a test. (But then, that was also because I hadn’t prepared for it very well.) 🙂 And the OCD makes it very hard for me to resist picking at my skin, so I have scabs and scars all over my face, which of course makes me even more self-conscious than I already am. And the anxiety disorder I have to take a lot of precautions to make sure I don’t get freaked out. I take medicine for all these, too.Basically, I guess what I’m trying to say is I feel so different, in a bad way, and then God allowed me to have these disorders, and yet I am his matrespiece. It’s humbling to think about. Thanks for giving me a chance to think about it, though!Here is a skit you might enjoy, about being God’s original matrespiece.
