Specialist Speech & Language Therapist Tor Spence joins us for a chat. She's become an expert on coughing - what it is, how we can control it and what it does to your voice.
We break down the physiology of a cough, and describe the technique of mindful coughing.
Tor also talks about the process of vocal diagnosis, both within the ENT structure and "sight unseen" in the 2-week wait clinic.
Find out what the cycle and the seesaw have to do with coughing, and why Jeremy loves filtering in diagnosis (and what that actually means).
Oh and we're talking mucus.
Lots of mucus.
