What We Took Away – Episode 61

Posted on: July 22, 2011

Episode 61 is a first for me. This is the first time I have recorded with several women at different times and attempted (notice I say attempted) to string the clips together into one cohesive episode. Here’s where we will separate the professionals from the amateurs. I am definitely in the latter category!

I started my journey with pod-casting saying that if producing these episodes became too much like work, I would quit. I have always tried to keep the episodes as simple as possible. That has not been hard to do, given my limited audio tech skills.

Sharing the unique stories of women who stutter continues to be very special for me, and I love to do it. So even trying something new did not scare me off.

This episode features three women who all were previous guests. We chat about their experiences at the recent National Stuttering Association conference.  One woman attended for her first time, and the other two attended their second conferences. All three share their thoughts, reflections and take home lessons.

This was a great way for us to process this shared experience. Although it was a shared experience, it impacted each woman differently. Listen in as I chat with Anna Margolina, Nina Zito and Sarah Bryant. We talk a little bit about a lot of things, but mainly how it feels to attend a conference where stuttering is the norm.

Thanks to all three of you for taking the time to share your thoughts and reminding us all how special it is to come together as a stuttering community.

Pam, you didn’t need to apologize for you lack of skills. This is a fabulous podcast. I loved hearing two other participants and their views. I only wished there were more women telling their experience. maybe next time you’ll make an interview with 4 or 5 of participants?
