Professional actor Marc Winski joins Chaya Goldstein to challenge the ongoing narrative of “overcoming” stuttering. Marc and Chaya discuss the latest Marie Claire article and People magazine article where stuttering is once again described as something to overcome. Chaya and Marc engage in a frank conversation about what needs to change in how we think and talk about stuttering.

Marc is a professional actor, singer and dancer in NYC, and a person who stutters.  Some of his credits include National Tours such as Grease and Hairspray. He was also a Mainstage Performer with Disney Cruise Lines. As a member of the stuttering community he is currently striving to give a voice and be an advocate for people who stutter in theatre/film/media/television. He recently appeared on an episode of “What Would You Do?” on ABC where he portrayed a waiter who stutters. Marc is fortunate to have been a member of the stuttering community for over 8 years and helped to start and reignite the new Midtown Manhattan chapter of the NSA. He leads an improv workshop for people who stutter and he hopes to give many more opportunities to show stuttering in the arts. He wants to thank his amazing ‘Stamily’ for all of their constant love, friendship, and support.
