Disappointed

I’m a therapist who is getting more & more neurodiverse couples coming to me & I was so excited fro find this podcast & to listen to the episode about treating neurodiverse couples in counseling. It was obvious that both the hosts and the guest were just reading directly what must’ve been pre-written questions & answers. Although the content was so interesting to me & I so much wanted to continue listening, the stilted & inauthentic nature of the interview on both sides was painful to hear & after 5 minutes I had to turn it off. I will try another episode in hope that it feels more real. Looks like you’ve got some content, please work on the delivery (for us neurotypicals, at least, it’s hard to engage when you’re reading something pre-written rather than interacting in the moment).

A guy on the spectrum

I know this show is geared toward women on the spectrum, however it has been a great help to me as I am struggling to improve my interactions with nuerotypicals and be more accepting of myself.

Thank you for this wonderful podcast!

Great conversation about ASD

I just heard about this podcast last week and have basically binged it. As a teacher and undiagnosed aspie, I love listening and getting more information about ASD, especially in women. Please keep them coming. :)
