Amazing interview on progressive HR initiatives!

I loved the episode interviewing MacKenzie Martin! Super informative and insightful, makes me so happy to hear about progressive initiatives happening in the professional world. I really resonated with MacKenzie’s passion she has a unique insight and is very inspirational. Thank you!

Great podcast, a few critiques

Very educational, helpful, and easy to follow. As an autistic adult I would appreciate if you could refer to the autistic community as autistic rather than people with autism. This is what autistic self-advocates prefer and respecting the disabled community is important as you are non-disabled hosts of a podcast about disabled people.
