Jason Died and He Knew My Secret (Ep. 479)

StutterTalk_iTunesBob Quesal joins Peter Reitzes to discuss the recent death of a person they refer to as “Jason.” Jason figured out that Peter was a stutterer “passing as fluent” during high school and would occasionally mock Mr. Reitzes’ stuttering. Dr. Quesal and Mr. Reitzes discuss issues relating to stuttering and bullying, forgiveness and acceptance and dealing with feelings of pain that may reemerge when remembering past experiences.
