Mom Approved 👏

Great podcast for parents with children on the Autism Spectrum. I appreciate their candor and love their humor. Also being Canadian I like the Canadian perspective that Graham offers. As a Mom with a 5 year old ASD son I like hearing the articles they present and interviews with experts.

Honest and uplifting

An honest, simple podcast that truly helps me get a new perspective having a son on the spectrum. I especially like Kirk’s sign off of “You can do it!”

Exceptional Podcast

A great podcast by great comedians. I highly suggest Kirk Smith’s book Rice Krispies with Ketchup. Kirk does a great job at sharing his experience with an autistic child and puts a beautiful light on his experience.
