Love this!

Learned about this podcast after seeing Kirk’s show on a cruise. Love the personal stories and real life talk of living with Autism in the family. The light hearted banter and spontaneous jokes makes me laugh out loud!

Love and understanding

I started listening to the podcast after hearing Graham on an episode of Stop Podcasting Yourself. What a great podcast if you have anyone in your life with special needs. As a special education teacher it is refreshing and exciting to hear people talk about acceptance and understanding without judgment. The jokes that Kirk and Graham make are obviously filled with love. I find this both fun and educational. I love hearing from a father and a brother. Keep it up guys. You are doing it.

Great show.

As a mom of a teenager on the spectrum, I love listening to these two. Graham’s perspective as the sibling gives me insight to what my other son may be thinking and Kirk’s perspective as a parent is relatable. I’ve been listening for years and I finally figured out how to write a review. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comedy with us.
