Joel Korte

CARYN HERRING, ROISIN MCMANUS, and JOEL KORTE (the “Stuttertalk B Team“) discuss Joel’s current struggles with stuttering as well as “Speech Tool Guy,” a concept he made up and introduced in episode 374. Joel loosely defines “Speech Tool Guy” as a character who is never ashamed of stuttering, using speech tools, or being fluent. Roisin shares a “healthy skepticism” of Speech Tool Guy while Joel tries to figure out the best direction for controlling his stuttering.

Joel shares that, “Every time I try really, really hard not to stutter, it’s a disaster.
