StutterTalk host Barry Yeoman is joined by David Mitchell and Harry Dhillon in Lunteren, The Netherlands at the 10th World Congress for People Who Stutter. Mr. Dhillon explains how he stopped seeing himself as a victim and began taking responsibility for making changes. Mr. Mitchell encourages people who stutter to be more engaged in the political process and explains why people who stammer are “empathy generators.” StutterTalk plans to quick-publish several more daily episodes from the 10th World Congress.
