Amen brother!

My friend is an avid listener to your podcast told me about this episode. I stutter, too. In fact, I produce a podcast called Stuttering is Cool over at stutteringiscool.com and co-founded Stutter Social using G+ hangouts.

Would love to have you come on my show some time.

Another thing I hate about the misconceptions about stuttering is people who are compelled to finish my sentences. But nothing beats "Did you forget your name?"

Thank you.

I think your telling this story will undoubtedly encourage others to try to come out of the withdrawal that perceived inadequacies can impose.

I knew a guy who could barely read and write, through no fault of his own; I know the energy and effort it took for him to admit it, then to do something about it.

Any testimony that such can be confronted is valuable.

You did good.

Love your honesty. It's hard dealing with people who don't understand stuttering.

This was a great episode.

I don't think I could call this a "fun" episode, but it was certainly an important one. You did a good job of covering a difficult and personal topic, and you expressed some ideas in a way that I can only describe as "beautiful." Well done, Door.
