It’s June, and for all you clinicians that work in a medical setting, you know that June is National Dysphagia Awareness. So with that in mind, episode number 6 of SLP Trivia Fun revolved around the topic of swallowing. I was lucky enough to be joined by my good friend Rinki Varindani Desai who is a clinician that really knows her stuff, with regard to dysphagia. Also, Rinki is the co-founder of the Swallowing Training and Education Portal, also known as STEP, so that right there shows ya that she TOTALLY knows dysphagia.
Let’s chat about some world records, baby!
Recently, I’ve been a bit obsessed with Guinness World Records so I made it a point to unearth a bunch of world records that have to do with the tongue, teeth, throat, and such. All in an effort to pay a bit of homage to the subject of dysphagia. Some questions I threw Rinki’s way were:
- How long is the world’s longest tongue?
- How many tongue piercings does it take to hold the title for having the most tongue piercings?
- And more!
In closing . . .
You won’t believe some of the world records we talked about. And hey, if you every wanted to learn how to speak Hindi, you’ll find this episode especially interesting. I don’t want to give TOO MUCH away, but yeah, we did speak a bit of Hindi during the episode. So what are you waiting for? Give episode number 6 a listen HERE and let me know what ya think of it. Thanks! You’re the best!
