Most People Don’t Give A Crap Episode 12

Posted on: July 6, 2010

Episode 12 welcomes Victoria Benson Schutter, from Houston, Texas. Vicki is a long time NSA member,and in fact, was with the organization when it was still known as the NSP, National Stuttering Project.

Vicki works at Rice University in Houston, and is a NSA chapter leader, chairing meetings from her home. This week, Vicki will be attending her 25th consecutive NSA conference. Vicki was the 2009 NSA Member of the Year. She has also been actively involved with community theater for over 35 years.

This episode really drives home the power of women sharing their stories. Vicki shares several stories, illustrating the importance  of having a  good sense of humor and not taking self or others too seriously. This is an especially helpful episode for young people.

Fun Fact: Vicki tells us about how she came to marry her husband, who happens to have a last name that rhymes with stutter.

Listen in to an engaging, funny and inspirational conversation. Feel free to leave comments or ask questions.

“I did not perceive the southern accent, but I did get the sense of humor! Excellent installment.”

What a great episode. Vicki was so honest and human and funny.
This one seemed really conversational, as if you had been telling stories with each other for a long time.
Pam, you are really doing a nice job and the diversity of stories is just great. Good for all of us to hear, women and men!

[…] am so glad I had my trusty Flip recorder with me when Vicki Schutter got up to speak at one of the general sessions at the National Stuttering Association conference. […]
