Audible Autism – Podcast Co-Host Wanted

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 Neurotypical people to ask them for acceptance into their world. Other people do that. This is for us.

In the last 5 years, we have released 34 episodes of Audible Autism, covering a huge variety of topics. We have released interviews with autistic therapists, dancers and civil servants, held discussions on autistic parenting, autistic pride and autistic art, hosted talks on autistic stories and lives, and produced guides to self-organisation and black history month. We aim to showcase autistic life across a wide spectrum (ahem) of experiences and interests.

Our episodes are released via Anchor which has now been acquired by Spotify. The majority of our listenership find our episodes via Spotify’s algorithm, although we would like to increase our marketing.

Our team turns over but currently involved are Odai, as co-host and producer, Luke, as co-host, and Simon, as our sound editor. Episodes are produced on a schedule that suits the current team – formerly fortnightly, they are now released as and when our team has time and availability, or for special occasions.

Due to health reasons, Odai is stepping back from his role as a co-host to focus on his role as a producer. We are therefore looking for a new co-host who can contribute to the team. The current team has talked about what new skills they would like in a new member of the team and we are particularly looking for a co-host who can demonstrate interviewing skills, who can attentively listen to our guests and ask insightful, relevant follow-up questions.

In addition to working on pre and post production, co-hosts can work with other co-hosts or by themselves to produce episodes that suit their interests. You might be asked to interview a particular guest on a subject the producer has identified as important or timely, or you might want to produce your own audioessay on a subject that is meaningful to you. We will accommodate whatever you are interested in.

Audible Autism is an autonomous project hosted within and supported by the Autistic Empire. Please read our five principles and our values to ensure you are aligned with our perspective of autism. Audible Autism team members are strongly encouraged to enrol as citizens but this is not a requirement. However, you must identify as autistic – self-identity is valid.

The team organises via Whatsapp, Basecamp and an FTP server where the audio files are stored. Episodes are recorded on Zencastr, and edited in Logic Pro.

We are not necessarily looking for long-term commitments but we would expect anyone who is interested to be with us for at least a year.

If this interests you or you have further questions, please email For qualified applicants, we have prepared a follow-up test on preparing a sample interview to display your skills.

Black History Month Transcript

Hi everyone,

we are having technical issues with our latest episode release, so we are going to be delayed by a week. However, we are pleased to be able to offer you a transcript of Episode 24, our Black History Month episode, to tide you over.

Transcription is a necessary tool to make our content accessible to a wider audience, but it is an expensive process and we cannot afford this for every episode at the moment. We have set up a Patreon for our listeners to support our work and providing transcription is our number one priority – please donate and help us bring Audible Autism to more people! Link:
