Too fast for words

Episode #254: I chat with Rutger Wilhelm, author of Too Fast For Words: How discovering that I don’t stutter but clutter changed my life. Rutger had recently discovered that his lifelong understanding of the way he talked wasn’t stuttering after all but cluttering.

While people who stutter know what they want to say but struggle to get their words out, people who clutter struggle with formulating what they want to say. While stuttering deals with speech mechanics, cluttering deals with the planning of language.

Rutger and I talk about the remarkable inverse differences between living with cluttering and stuttering.

  1. Excellent podcast, thanks!

  2. Very cool podcast. You ask great questions about cluttering,, and Rutger was an awesome guest..

    My answer to your question that you asked about what people say to me, that’s not helpful is….”Joseph, just tell me what you’re thinking,” misinterpreting my cluttering as that…well, I don’t know…maybe they think I’m just super nervous…too nervous to actually say what I’m thinking.
