Informative and inspiring
As a British Columbian, I was thrilled to find a local podcast on autism and it has introduced me to so many inspiring individuals, programs and resources. Tallie is a great hostess, putting her guests at ease and asking great thought provoking questions. Her enthusiasm and passion for her advocacy work come through in every episode.
Thank you for providing these resources and for your disability advocacy..
