    Carl,

    I enjoyed this interview but I was wondering if maybe you were a little nervous that day or something, you seemed to be talking very fast and not allowing Joe to speak.

    Perhaps this was only my interpretation but I thought I would ask as you could explain it of course.

    A thought that went thru my mind is that you were talking fast and interrupting a lot in order to challenge Joe with his speech tools.

    Was this it?

    Thanks,

    Steven

    I think you’re being a little hard on me! Isn’t a guy allowed to be a little bit nervous in front of a camera? I’m not sure if I was actually feeling nervous that day or not… it was a while ago.

    I can assure you one thing, I was not trying to challenge Joe with his speech tools. Joe was not in a speech therapy session with me in that moment, so it wouldn’t be my role to challenge or encourage his use of any speech tool. In that conversation, it was completely up to him to speak however he wanted.

    The purpose of the interview was to talk about life after an AIS program. What are your thoughts on the message of the blog post?

    Steven,

    I’m the dude from the video, I can tell you that desensitization is key, just forcing yourself to do things outside of your comfort zone is huge in your development. I used to dread making phone calls or introducing myself to girls at the club, now I do it every day and feel much more like a “normal” person.
