    ACP Rewind #1 (Supporting Transitions)

    Join Assoc. Producer Alie B. Gorrie and rewind to April 24th, 2018...a time before social distancing...a time before Dr. Fauci….and a time before Phil understood anything about his recording equipment. On the very first episode of The Access Champions Podcast we sat down with Aliza Greenberg & Alison Mahoney to chat about The Supporting Transitions program. Hear/Read an update from Aliza on the program and it’s growth over the last two years. And then we head into Episode 1 where we chatted about how Supporting Transitions was launched by The Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium and how Aliza & Alison became attached to the project. Listen/read about the incredibly high unemployment rate in the autism community and how the cultural sector can be an asset in solving that issue. Finally, learn about the different facets to the project and how they’re hitting it from several angles. All of that and more as we flashback to Episode Number One of The Access Champions Podcast!
