The Big Overt and Covert Discussion: Gallons and Glubs (Ep. 162)

stuttering, StutterTalk

Eric and Peter

Peter Reitzes and Eric Jackson discuss covert and overt stuttering. Peter suggests using, at least for this episode, terms such as completely covert, almost completely covert or successfully covert to describe people who stutter who are able to hide their stuttering from just about everyone in their lives. We play on air a short audio clip from this interview with Charles Van Riper from the Voices: Past and Present section of the wonderful Stuttering Homepage (next week, for episode 164, we will discuss the entire Van Riper interview).
