This was a deeply personal conversation for me because, like Jordan Scott, I grew up stuttering. Jordan has embraced his stutter and made it part of his art in a unique and beautiful way. I’m grateful to Jordan for having this conversation with me and I hope you enjoy it. As always, thanks for reading and thanks for listening.
