Good info, but fast

Great If you’re looking for someone else to do the nitty gritty of finding and reading the research on autism so that you can just listen to the important parts! host speaks very quickly and to grasp the presented research you likely need some solid background understanding. Science and research focused (as the podcast name suggests) and perhaps less useful for parents/educators working with autistic individuals.

that’s what hooked me to listen further; knowing that i rarely listen to a podcast or use a podcast app like Apple Podcasts unless i choose to!
