Audible Autism is a podcast that aims to give voice to autistic people from our own internal perspective. It is made for autistic people, by autistic people. We’re looking to talk about autism, and things that would be interesting to autistic people. We’re not trying to explain ourselves to Neuro-Typical people to ask them for acceptance into their world. Other people do that.
This is for us.
Sarah is a mental health occupational therapist who lives in London. She handles the logistics of organising, uploading and distributing the podcast. She enjoys politics, reading, and patiently explaining to everyone who does not fully understand why Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the best. Until everyone understands.

Odai is 23 and lives in Wood Green. He graduated from university with a degree in Creative Writing and has been involved in helping to produce several other podcasts in the past before coming on board with Audible Autism. He handles the technical side of the podcast – the recording, the editing and the schlepping of equipment. Odai enjoys gaming, film, art, and listening to podcasts, which is pretty useful given Sarah doesn’t.

Jason is an experimental composer with a love for the wacky and weird. He is vocal about how his autism plays a part in his music creation process, but is adamant that his music is not about his autism. Currently a candidate for PhD at Canterbury Christ Church University looking at how a living definition of “indeterminacy”, “chance”, and “aleatory” can be observed in the realm of practical composition. One of his latest projects (Adventurers & Artists) involved a live Dungeons & Dragons campaign with live improvised music. Outside of the music world he has a proud obsession with Doctor Who.
“You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away!” – Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) in The Parting of the Ways [Doctor Who Series 1 Episode 13]
