Act Two

Special Effects Story

Kevin Murphy is a college student in Idaho who stutters. Using the power of radio editing, he and the production staff of This American Life removed his pauses, stutters and repeats so that he could record a message in which he doesn't stutter at all. This allowed him to tape a message about something that's been bothering him, to send to one man...a pizza guy, in Idaho. Visit the National Stuttering Association website. (6 minutes)
