Maya Chupkov once scrapped her dreams of working in broadcast journalism, because she didn’t think someone who stutters could handle a job that required talking in front of a massive audience. Now, she broadcasts her voice to thousands of listeners every week, as the host and producer of the immensely popular, award-winning podcast Proud Stutter, a show that puts the spotlight on “speech diversity”—and offers up room for an impressively diverse lineup of guests to share their experiences of living with a stutter.

For the latest installment of AIS’s Speaker Series, Maya sits down with LA Clinic Director Gregory Scott to talk overcoming fears, big life changes born in the pandemic, and the necessity of rendering more visible the “invisibility” of speech differences.
