    S4 E46 Thomas A. McKean: A Fantastic Advocate for Autistics

    S4 E46 Thomas A. McKean: A Fantastic Advocate for Autistics

    Autism advocate and comic lover Thomas A. McKean does not consider autism a superpower. Still, armed with his brilliant, open mind he pens a voice of reason amongst a universe of controversy. Thomas is “puzzled” by the epic autism battles other “advocates” choose. His story is a rare edition and his page-turning adventures prove the good advocates always win.

    S4 E45 Jill Escher of the National Council on Severe Autism

    S4 E45 Jill Escher of the National Council on Severe Autism

    Jill Escher is the president of the National Council on Severe Autism and has prepared a strong message for the world: every autism parent is in a state of panic, and the “unaffected,” should be too. Yes, could this mean you. 
    “Severe” or “not-so-pretty” autism voices demand a place at the table, and no noisy, lame attempt to shame the advocates over semantics will “cancel” the grim statistics. Severe autism is coming for all of us, actually. It’s time to listen.

ASD with a whole lot of Laughs and Love

This podcast offers honest perspectives from two South Florida autism moms who truly “get it”. I love the variety of hosts and topics to help me expand my knowledge of all things ASD. Beyond the podcast, Kristi and Brenda have created an amazing community of other autism moms to learn from and relate to one another. I really appreciate hearing the once a year “Dads” interview too. These moms are talented, bright, and downright hilarious. As a mother of a child with significant special needs I feel like I have two friends “walking the walk” alongside me. Laughter, sometimes tears, great conversation, and an occasional adult beverage makes every episode a must listen.
