Dancing Denman ,

Thank You!!!!

Great podcast. Thank you so much Becca and Dr. K!
I have been binge listening to this podcast since discovering it a few weeks ago. It's so amazingly wonderful to be able to hear other Autistic women's voices and perspectives.

So much great information you provide and tips to help point me in the directions I need to better understand myself after 50 years of being "weird"!

If you are Autistic then this is one of the podcasts you really want to subscribe to!
