Episode 23 – Alex (Retropals) – Part One

Hello listeners, we’re back with another exciting episode of Audible Autism, this one is special, as it is the first 2 parter episode we’ve had for the podcast.

On this episode Odai goes solo to interview streamer, video editor/ephemera collector Alex. Alex is one half of streaming duo “The Retro Pals”. On this episode, you get to hear talk about the differences between living in Texas and California, life as an autistic trans man, and also a touching discussion on being in a relationship with a non-autistic partner.

Fun fact: if you listen closely you can hear Odai’s barely contained excitement during the interview

Episode 22 – Ditte Rose Andersen

Ditte Rose Andersen – Intensive Interaction Coordinator

Hello listeners, Season 3 is here!

On this first episode our hosts Sarah and Odai have an interview with psychologist Ditte Rose Andersoen looking into Ditte’s interests and research into the sensory aspects of autism. Both Sarah and Odai came away feeling like their heads were swimming with loads of new information and perspectives in regards to communication and better understanding in what people with autism want and how they’re not as disinterested as neurotypicals may first assume. We think this is a great start to the season. If you would like to be on an episode of Audible Autism, please fill out our form here, and we’d love to chat with you.
