The host of the show, John Offord said “It’s been an incredible journey and I’ve been honoured to have interviewed such inspirational guests on the series, such as Chris Packham, Steve Silberman and Temple Grandin to name but a few. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my listeners, who without, none of this would have been possible and my sponsor, Aspire Autism Consultancy and former sponsor, Tiimo.”

Just what the world needs

I absolutely love this show and think it is so needed now more than ever.

John is a fabulous host, and I was honoured to have him guest on my show, Positive Changes: A Self-Kick Podcast, where he was equally fabulous and truly authentic in his story.

Highly recommend John as a podcast host and guest.
