A History of Stuttering in the Movies with Barry Harbaugh (Episode 247)

Barry Harbaugh, assistant editor at Harper Collins, joins regular co-host Eric Jackson to discuss a piece he recently did for Slate.com called “A History of Stuttering in the Movies: It hasn’t been pretty.” This great piece is a survey of the history of stuttering in cinema (including a really cool slide-show!) and was written in anticipation of the release of the much hyped film, “The King’s Speech.” Barry and Eric also discuss stuttering related topics including answering the phone at work, Colin Firth’s stuttering in “The King’s Speech,” stuttering around the holidays, and much more.
