Amanda Mammana’s America’s Got Talent audition put a national spotlight on stuttering. At first, I couldn’t understand why it made me feel so uncomfortable watching it. Shouldn’t I be happy for a fellow woman who stutters getting this opportunity? And then I read Courtney Margulis’ post. She put words into what I had been feeling while watching the video of the audition.In Season 2’s first bonus episode, I speak with Courtney and TikTok star Marc Winski about the audition, how it perpetuates stigma around stuttering, and what we can do about it. Courtney’s post can be read here: An open letter to America’s Got TalentYou can follow Marc Winski @marcwinskiTIKTOK: https://www.tiktok.com/@marcwinski?_t=8UVRwcjQ83G&_r=1INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/marcwinski/?hl=enReach out and donate to Marc at https://linktr.ee/MarcwinskiEpisode Overview[6:45 - 13:00] Inspiration Porn and Perpetuating Stigma[13:10 - 15:30] Educating via social media comments[15:30 - 16:48] Singing and stuttering[16:50 - 18:50] Pointing out the stigma[19:04 - 20:37] The varying responses to the audition[27:20 - 34:00] Calls to action to spread awareness to end the stigmaWant to support this work? Tell us what Proud Stutter has meant to you by leaving a voicemail (415-964-0140) or writing (info@proudstutter.com).Make a monthly or one-time donation on FlipCause.Leave us a rating or review on Apple Podcasts, Podchaser, or Spotify.Sign up for our newsletter.

Eli Taulman is a teenager who has had a stutter since he first started talking. While he is proud of his stutter today, he didn’t always feel that way. He hid from the world by self-isolating and was deeply ashamed of his stutter growing up. A key turning point was attending his first National Stuttering Association conference where he met other stutterers for the first time. Maya and Cynthia chat with Eli, Proud Stutter’s youngest guest, about how he became proud of his stutter and offers advice for teens who may be struggling with their stutter.

There is no definitive answer to why a person stutters. However, thanks to Frank Guenther and his research lab at Boston University, the mystery of stuttering has become a little clearer. With advances in brain activity monitoring technology, neuroscientists like Frank are able to explore stuttering in exciting new ways. Frank joins Maya and Cynthia for a conversation about his research on the underlying causes of stuttering and how it may be related to speech production. Other topics mentioned in the episode:History of stuttering research and early misconceptionsCorrelations between behavior development in childhood and fluencySimilarities between stutterers, neurotypical children, and adults with Parkinson’sIs there a connection between being bilingual and having a stutter?Stuttering differences in males and femalesOpportunities for future stuttering research Quotes from the episode: “There are probably subtypes of stuttering that we will eventually need to separate out if we truly want to understand the behavior because otherwise we will just keep seeing variability from study to study.”“Relatively little research has been done in females who stutter so one of the things that we hope to learn from our collaboration with Dr. Chang’s lab is whether there are different developmental trajectories for males and females that might give us more insight into what's happening and why it's more likely that a males will continue to stutter, compared to a female who stuttered as a child.”Mentioned in the episode:Guenther Lab at Boston UniversitySpeech Neurology Lab at the University of MichiganNIH Policy and Guidelines on The Inclusion of Women and Minorities as Subjects in Clinical ResearchBE PART OF THE SHOW:Rate this pod: https://ratethispodcast.com/proudstutter Have a question or comment - Leave a voicemail for Maya & Cynthia at (415) 964-0140 - this is a voicemail-only line, so we promise you won't have to talk to someone in person!Be a guest on the show - we would love to talk with you!

The movement to expand diversity and inclusivity in newsrooms is growing. Yet stuttering, a speech disability affecting nearly 1% of the population, is seldom talked about in the newsroom.This week, Mariam Elba speaks with Maya and Cynthia about what it’s like to have a stutter in the newsroom. Mariam, a woman who stutters, is a research reporter at Pro Publica and an adjunct professor at CUNY’s Craig Newmark Journalism School. Mariam talks about her journey to becoming a reporter and how she didn’t let her stutter get in the way of pursuing journalism as a career and teaching.“Don't be afraid to kind of go after what you feel really passionate about. Like if there are stories that you like, that you're seeing, and that you want to write about and report on that you're not seeing elsewhere, you should be the person to do that reporting. And that like, you know, your stutter doesn't like make you any less qualified to be someone speaking in like a public-facing setting.”Other topics mentioned:Power of mentorshipHaving a stutter and teachingMeeting other people who stutter in the newsroomBeing around other people who stutter for the first timeAdvice for aspiring teachers who stutterTips for introducing yourself as a person who stutters in a groupAsking about a person’s stutter: a positive real-life exampleThe challenges of following up with sourcesMaya’s experience working in PR with a stutter Dealing with stress at the workplaceMentioned in the episode:CUNY’s Craig Newmark’s School of JournalismPro PubilcaThe NationBE PART OF THE SHOW:Rate this pod: https://ratethispodcast.com/proudstutterHave a question or comment - Leave a voicemail for Maya & Cynthia at (415) 964-0140 - this is a voicemail-only line, so we promise you won't have to talk to someone in person!Be a guest on the show - we would love to talk with you!

Blackness, stuttering, music, and religion are all complex topics in their own right. Yet, Jerome Ellis combines them beautifully in his work, like when he uses academic and theoretical language to parse out the relationship between blackness and music.In the second part of our interview with Ellis, we talk more about his album, The Clearing, and how he draws out the beauty of stuttering through various mediums – history to show the connection between music and blackness, and comparing waiting birds and trees to the unknowingness of stuttering.“If I were...if I were repeating the first syllable of a book title than they…then [people] would be less likely to hang up because they would hear like, and they might be like – Oh, he's stuttering right now – but, because [my] glottal block so often sounds silent…people don't know what's happening, and…it's been so painful for so many years, but I gradually I’ve been able [to see there is something important there] in the not knowing.”Other topics include:How Blackness and stuttering play next to each otherHistorical knot of blackness and music Mosaics of differenceVoluntary and involuntary stutteringHerons and stutteringHonoring the mystery and beauty of the stutterStuttering and the state of unknowing Tress and stutteringGlottal block stuttering vs. repeating syllables in TV and film“Stuttering is an occasion to be present in complex thought”Mentioned in the episode:“We do not live single-issue lives” - Audrey LordeHistorian Saidiya HartmanTrack 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 of The ClearingHistory of the word grallatorialThis American Life episode featuring Jerome“The Cloud of Unknowing”Jerome’s forthcoming projectsUpcoming Live Performances:April 10, 2022: Rewire Festival in The Hague, NetherlandsMay 7, 2022: XJAZZ!

JJJJJerome Ellis talks with Maya and Cynthia about the intersections of being a black person who stutters and a musician, how his views of his disability evolved since childhood, and why it was so important for him to connect his stutter to his ancestral history of slavery in his work. He also highlights how the stage is a safe space for stuttering and music is a source of healing the pain he experienced as a child.“Growing up I felt so much of the pain and also the beauty of the stutter. Over time I’ve come to feel the stutter alters time, and music is another way that we can alter time. Part of what I was trying to do with The Clearing is to try to undo some of the things that have been told to me about stuttering and to transform the stuttering narrative through poetry, music, history, and philosophy.”Other topics include:Stuttering easily with animalsIntersectionalityPain in not being able to connect with peopleThe stage as a safe space Comparing stuttering to being frozen in timeMusic as a source of healingBeing at odds with languagePoetry allows for so much freedom to explore languageGetting through interviews with a stutterLINKS FROM THE EPISODE:Jerome’s album The ClearingJerome’s accompanying book to The ClearingThe Guardian article, Artist and stutterer JJJJJerome Ellis: ‘So much pain comes from not feeling fully human’More about the collaboration between James Harrison Monaco and Jerome EllisPerformance at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern ArtBrittany Cooper’s Racial Politics of Time TED TalkJoshua St. Pierre, Canada Research Chair in Critical Disability StudiesJerome's upcoming live performances:April 10, 2022: Rewire Festival in The Hague, NetherlandsMay 7, 2022: XJAZZ!

Not everyone who stutters shows it all the time. There are people who become very good at hiding it by substituting words, avoiding high-octane situations, and choosing to remain quiet to avoid stuttering. People like this are often identified as having a "covert" stutter.Both Maya and guest Sarah Nelson identify as covert stutters. In this episode, they talk about passing as fluent, disclosing to their families and friends, and analogies that describe their experiences.

Did you know there is a community of Speech-Language Pathologists who stutter? Bailey Levis, a speech therapist and proud person who stutters, is the founder of the San Francisco Speech and Fluency Center.

But we don't have to let it stop us from living our lives to our fullest.”At 10: 37 - “[Stuttering Therapy] is about identifying uncomfortable situations and helping people to be comfortable in those uncomfortable situations…it's all the things that we avoid doing in our lives or the things that we avoid saying, that's the disability.”Mentioned in the episode:Tik Tok clip - This Woman With A Stutter Is Going Viral After Filming Herself Ordering At A Drive-Thru, And Her Videos Are Raising Awareness About The DisorderSan Francisco Speech and Fluency Center - www.sfstutteringhelp.comBE PART OF THE SHOW:Rate this pod - https://ratethispodcast.com/proudstutterHave a question or comment - Leave a voicemail for Maya & Cynthia at (415) 964-0140 - this is a voicemail-only line, so we promise you won't have to talk to someone in person!Be a guest on the show - we would love to talk with you!

Maya and Cynthia talk to James Hayden, a person who stutters, a Tedx speaker, and the author of “Dear World, I Stutter.”Many stutterers like James and Maya have been discriminated against because of their stutter, whether it be in a job, during an interview, or at school.So often, we pass judgments on people by our first impressions of them, often without giving it a second thought. But how often do we take the time to look beyond our first impressions of someone?In this episode, Maya and Cynthia talk to James about first impressions and how to let go of self-judgment when stuttering in front of new people.LINKS!Purchase Jame’s book here.Read writings by James here, here, here, and here.Support us:DonateBuy cute merchEmail: info@proudsutter.com

Maya and her mom have a raw and emotional conversation about her stutter. Before this interview, Maya had never shared with her mom how she really felt about growing up with a stutter, how exhausting speech therapy was after school, and how hiding her stutter took so much out of her mentally.“Having all these tools to practice was just another kind of thing I had t-to think about when I never really wanted to do it in the first p-place. But at th-the same time, I really appreciate you going above and beyond t-to help me especially b-because at that time I really did hate my stutter...I felt so alone in it.”Support us:DonateBuy cute merchLinks!Therapy referral lists of speech-language pathologistsInternational Stuttering Association Events

Cynthia asks Maya about what it was like to date with a stutter. Maya’s perspective may surprise you. Hint: Filtering system.
After hiding a part of herself for most of her life, Maya reveals things about her stutter she has never told anyone, not even her family. She became an expert at avoiding certain words and passing as fluent, all in the effort to assimilate, fit into societal norms, and succumb to ableist expectations. How did Maya get from doing everything she could to hide her stutter to now embracing it? What happened when Maya started disclosing her stutter for the first time? Find out in the first episode of Proud Stutter with hosts Maya Chupkov and Cynthia Chin. Maya is a proud person who stutters and Cynthia does not have a stutter. Join the journey to changing the conversation about stuttering so it is better understood by society and lifts more stuttering voices.

Intersectional identities overlap, connect, disconnect and can even attempt to cancel each other out. During a live interview at the National Stuttering Association's 39th Annual Conference in Newport Beach California, I talked with multiple people who stutter about their intersectional identities and how these different identities show up in their lives. Interviewees include Christian, an Asian American man who stutters and a film and TV producer, Sam, a multi-racial queer woman who stutters in the mental health field, Alicia, a Latino also in the healthcare field, and Eugene, an African American, Irish and Native American man who stutters. Mentioned in the episode:Maya and the Three (Netflix show)Once Upon A Time In HollywoodThe King’s SpeechBehind Porky Pig’s VoiceToday’s Episode:[3:56] What is Intersectionality?[8:12] TV & Film & Shifting The Stuttering Narrative[8:27] Characters Who Stutter & Examples of Representing Stuttering Right [13:46] Covert Stuttering[17:04] Creating A World Where We Stutter Freely[19:50] Mini Interview with Alicia[21:24] Mini Interview with Sam[24:12] Mini Interview with EugeneConnect with Maya and Proud Stutter: Twitter | Instagram | Website | LinkedIn | Support | Subscribe | E-Newsletter | ShopSUPPORT PROUD STUTTERSupport Proud Stutter By Signing Up on Ko-Fi [Similar to Patreon]OR Make a One-Time Donation
