Make Room For The Stuttering

Being Cool With Me – Male Episode 10

Posted on: May 1, 2012

Episode 10 of the conversations with men who stutter features Landon Murray, who hails from New Orleans, LA. Landon is in school studying process engineering. He has also been the leader for the New Orleans chapter of the National Stuttering Association for the last two years.

Landon shares the story of how his fiance got him to go to his first stuttering support meeting and how that first meeting changed his life. He also talks about how he and she met!

We talk about confidence and self-image. Landon didn’t always have such an easy time, and shares how tough it was for him when he was younger. He also shares how he would sometimes “change himself” in order to fit in. And he shares about the “tons” of fights he’s had due to stuttering.

Listen in as we chat about dealing with being made fun of, educating others about stuttering, being comfortable in your own skin and acceptance.

Feel free to leave feedback in the comment section, or just let Landon know what a great job he did.

(Producer note: There was background noise/echo in this track that I could not edit. However, the conversation with Landon was so great that I dropped my usual standards of perfection. As I’ve said in the past, sue me!)

Hallo Landon! I’l quote Pamela: “– what a great job you did”. I admire your way to fight for your rights as a stuttering boy. Besides; I think there are many Murrays in the world, but I ones had a chief, a colonel by name Murray. You once all came from Ireland, a tough peaple. I wish you a good life. Bengt
