    Especially Interesting! At last Spencer returns and we talk: Coffee!

    David and Tigger meet, yet again, the amazing Spencer of Yo-Yo fame! At the end of our last podcast together we knew we had to do another and here it is!

    The three of us discussing our love of Coffee. At the end of this recording David and I just wanted to jet over to Kansas to  enjoy a coffee with the lush Spencer:)

    Spencer Hunley is an autistic professional based in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, where he currently serves on the Executive Committee for the Kansas City League of Autistics. His advocacy efforts focus on improving healthcare outcomes for autistics and other neurodivergent individuals through advocacy and policy change, as well as improving communication and collaboration between the autism & autistic communities through the lens of Neurodiversity. His work is on display at spencerhunley.com.

    In addition to his autistic advocacy, Spencer is a strong proponent of free/open-source assistive/accessible technology, previously presenting on topics including: how accessible and assistive technology would benefit from more Linux and open-source contributions, the inclusion of people with disabilities in the Linux community, and how people with disabilities can be an asset for Linux and other open-source projects.

    In his spare time he enjoys ‘throwing’ (yoyoing), playing board games and assists in production of a podcast called Neurologic (you can find it wherever you listen to podcasts, or at neurologic.libsyn.com).

    Especially Interesting meets Bobbi Elman For a lush natter about the 80s!!!!

    Bobbi discusses her amazing experiences of the 1980s, music, fashions events! A lush discussion, especially for Tigger as he remembers it well! This is definitely a part one with more to follow!

    Bobbi, is an awesome autism consultant, advocate and trainer
    "Many years ago I became a parent of 2 beautiful children and my career as a professional makeup artist ended. Then my journey into the autistic experience and the "SEN" system began. . I decided that I was going to be as expert as I possibly could be about my children. I devoured every book I could find, attended every seminar, workshop, conference I could and kept going." 

    "I provide presentations, workshops, webinars and contribute to conferences.  I create and deliver my own content and bespoke the content to what is required, needed or wanted."
