Hey, how’s it going! Stuttering is Cool is a podcast produced and hosted by me, Daniele Rossi. I stuttered since I was a kid and try never to let it hold me back. In fact, that’s the mission of my podcast— to encourage the same in my fellow stutterers.
I know how stuttering can make you feel like you’re the only one in the world who stutters. So in this Internet age where we can not only meet, but also see and hear other stutterers who share the same unique experiences that we do, we feel a little less alone!
I encourage you to participate in my podcast
Record an mp3 of yourself speaking and e-mail it to me. Talk about whatever you like! Your positive and negative experiences with stuttering, any tips you have, how your day went, what you day job is, your favourite colour, whatever you like. Send me your audio as often as you wish. You can even sing if you want to. You don’t even have to reveal you’re name. Then I’ll play your submitted audio on my podcast.
As of writing, there is no cure to stuttering
So why not have some fun with it? 🙂
By the way, the photo above was taken by my friend, EvaBlue. Check out her work! No, she does not stutter.

Episode #206: It isn’t easy living with a stutter! Chatting about how stuttering gives us extra challenges to overcome and how the world needs more awareness.
Episode #205: Happy New Year! Join me and my friends as we ring out 2016 in Montreal, Canada, over Facebook Live while chatting about speech goals and stuttering tips. Then we take you along for our walk towards the waterfront to watch the fireworks as we ring in 2017.
Could stuttering be more than a speech issue? What about the rest of your body? Dr. Greg Snyder returns to chat about some pretty cool research his lab at Ole Miss is currently conducting on stuttering in sign language, handwriting, and even touch typing! We also talk about a remarkable app that shows promise in reducing stuttering through your smartphone.
Episode #203: 1) Get yourself a community. 2) Realize that people don’t care that you stutter. They like the real you!
Don’t strive for complete fluency. Do the best you can do everyday. Whatever that is for you. Be it to stutter openly and freely or keep speech tools in practice. Be comfortable in your own skin.
