Bob Quesal with Jesse

Robert “the Expert” Quesal joins Peter Reitzes to discuss how much time should you spend working on stuttering.

Here is a little background to today’s episode. Recently on StutterTalk, Episode 455, the B Team discussed what they referred to as “the hypothetical (and entirely unrealistic) question, ‘How many hours a day would you put into working on your stuttering if that work guaranteed a cure for your stuttering?’” On today’s episode, we put fluency aside for a moment and ask, How much time a day should you work on acceptance of stuttering, stuttering openly, stuttering differently, educating family and friends about stuttering and being open about stuttering?
