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!”

Still listening and loving the show. Peter reminds me so much of my son and I look forward to the updates. I really liked the reviews of Love on the Spectrum. Keep it up, guys!

Good while it lasted

The podcast as a whole is light and comforting for those with autistic family members. I enjoy Graham’s anecdotes about his brother. Kirk’s constant travels to Sweden to see his son are admirable.

The last episode has been too much. Kirk Smith mentions numerous times that he’s Christian, then complains about Sweden spending their tax money on caring for their society (including social programs that benefit and support his son) instead of using it for military defence is ridiculous. As if the US would have a philosophical shift and spend money on social programs if it wasn’t for those pesky Swedes needing propped up. I’ve enjoyed the podcast for a while but I think I’m out now.

GREAT PODCAST!

Both Graham and Kirk are the best! This podcast is as hilarious as it is thought provoking. Both hosts are able to take an awkward conversation and turn it into a great conversation. Highly recommend!
