    111 [S9 E6] A magnet pulling me out of darkness: thinking through my body into autistic expression

    111 [S9 E6] A magnet pulling me out of darkness: thinking through my body into autistic expression

    Dana Michel is a live performance artist and choreographer in Montreal, Canada, where she creates experiences based on a mixture of improvisation, choreography, hip-hop, cinematography, techno, poetry and social commentary. Now 47, she self identified as autistic in 2020. She also has a diagnosis of ADHD.
    Before graduating in Contemporary Dance in her late twenties, Dana was a marketing executive, competitive runner and football player. 
    During her career as a performance artist she has received several awards, including an award for outstanding artistic accomplishments, the Silver Lion for Innovation in Dance and an International Prize for Live Art. She has been highlighted among notable female choreographers of the year by the New York Times, and was the first ever dance artist in residence at the National Arts Centre, Canada. 
    Dana is currently touring four solo performance works.
     
    We talk about:
    ➡ Why 'autism pants' feel more comfortable to her than 'ADHD pants'
    ➡ Her reaction to being diagnosed as 'twice exceptional' and 'gifted'
    ➡ Needing people to believe and accept our autism
    ➡ Being in another world as a child, and struggling to fit into the professional world as an adult
    ➡ Burnout, and how Dana feels that she was saved from the professional grind by following her autistic joy, and how she's found ways to overcome her feelings of not wanting to live in the world.

    110 [S9 E5] ‘My autism journey came out of my trans experience’: Navigating gender and autistic identities

    110 [S9 E5] ‘My autism journey came out of my trans experience’: Navigating gender and autistic identities

    Vic Weiner is a youth justice attorney and lifelong social justice activist in the USA. 
    They were brought up by a college professor mother in an unconventional home without a TV, and as a child they always felt like an outsider. However, as they grew up and continued to struggle socially, they realised it wasn’t just their unusual upbringing - there was something else going on. They were diagnosed autistic at 34.
    Vic attended Warren Wilson College, a unique university where the students work and undertake community service in addition to their studies. After struggling to find suitable employment after graduation, including trying teaching and youth work, Vic decided to go to law school, where they finally found something that worked for their neurodivergent brain.
    We talk about:
    ➡ Autism and gender, and their experiences of being transmasculine, genderqueer, queer and asexual. 
    ➡ Imposter syndrome, being an outsider, and not fitting in, and finding groups exhausting and lonely
    ➡ Generational autism 
    ➡ Attending a university that attracts a large number of neurodivergent students
    ➡ Navigating emerging gender and autistic identities
     
    Squarepeg is a podcast in which neurodivergent women, and trans and nonbinary people, explore navigating a neurotypical world and share their insights, challenges and successes.

    109 [S9 E4] Little glimpses underneath the mask: unravelling people-pleasing and imposter syndrome

    109 [S9 E4] Little glimpses underneath the mask: unravelling people-pleasing and imposter syndrome

    Gemma Gray is a strategic marketing consultant from Edinburgh in Scotland. She left her long-term role following a burnout two years ago and became self-employed. She is a parent to an autistic daughter, and was diagnosed herself in March this year, aged 46. Still in the early days of her diagnosis, she says she is unravelling being a people-pleasing professional masker with chronic low self esteem and imposter syndrome.
    Eight years ago, before her own diagnosis, Gemma set up a Facebook group for parents of autistic children, which is still going strong, and she has recently been awarded funding to research employment opportunities for autistic women.
     
    We talk about:
    ➡ Ableism and work, and finding freedom in self employment
    ➡ People pleasing, hating confrontation, and learning to say no
    ➡ Her rural childhood, being bullied at school, and befriending an elderly shepherdess and the school janitor
    ➡ Her journey to getting her daughter diagnosed, and not seeing her own autism because she was comparing herself to her young daughter

    108 [S9 E3] Told I couldn’t be autistic: BPD misdiagnosis, mental health negligence and finally getting justice

    Naomi Ghafoor is a mental health activist who has spent over a decade battling the mental healthcare system and dealing with misdiagnoses, negligence and systemic abuse, which recently led to her suing her NHS mental health trust earlier this year. 
    Now 26, she works as a Lived Experience Leadership Officer for a mental health charity in London, UK and is passionate about sharing her experiences and using her voice to uplift and empower others. She was diagnosed autistic at 24.
    In our conversation we talk about:
    ➡ Being misdiagnosed with BPD and told she couldn't be autistic 
    ➡ Finally getting her autism DX after several years of negative experiences in the mental health system
    ➡ The impact of intensive outpatient treatment for BPD and being unnecessarily medicated 
    ➡ Suing her NHS Trust over her misdiagnosis and trying to prove their negligence
    ➡ Her experiences of employment, including with a mental health charity

    107 [S9 E2] Autism deep-dive: examining the literature and ourselves, and reflections on burnout

    107 [S9 E2] Autism deep-dive: examining the literature and ourselves, and reflections on burnout

    Dr Alexandra Johnston is an academic and social anthropologist from Melbourne, Australia. Now 49, she was diagnosed in March 2023. She lives with her wife, Cherie, who she describes as the first person she ever truly unmasked with.
     
    She has several degrees, including a Masters and PhD in Psychology, and her special interests include writing, writing and… writing! So much so, that she self-diagnosed by conducting a literature review of autism, and writing a 45,000 word report on her findings.
     
    I found Alexandra really interesting to talk to. I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
     
    We talk about:
     
    ➡ her deep dive into the literature as she discovered her autism
    ➡ uncovering neurodivergence across generations of her family
    ➡ the very different reactions of her parents to her diagnosis
    ➡ having the support of her wife since her DX, and how their relationship has strengthened
    ➡ clusters of traits and co-occurring conditions
    ➡ our experiences of burnout and its impact

    106 [S9 E1] ND-affirming therapy: sensory regulation, integrating identity and understanding diffuse experiences

    106 [S9 E1] ND-affirming therapy: sensory regulation, integrating identity and understanding diffuse experiences

    Dr Megan Anna Neff is a neurodivergent Clinical Psychologist from Portland, Oregon, in the USA. She has a small private practice specialising in neurodivergent-affirming therapy and is the founder of Neurodivergent Insights, where she creates education and wellness resources for neurodivergent adults. She is also co-host of the Divergent Conversations podcast. 
    Dr Neff is dedicated to educating the mental health field on non-stereotypical presentations of autism and ADHD. Now 39, she was diagnosed autistic over two years ago, and also has ADHD. She is also a parent to two neurodivergent children.
    She regularly provides trainings on neurodivergent-affirming practices and is the author of the forthcoming book Self-Care for Autistic People.
    I’m delighted to share my conversation with Dr Neff.
    We talk about:
    ➡ What happened after she discovered she was autistic a few weeks before completing her PhD - and realised that a lot of what she’d been taught about autism was incorrect.
    ➡ OCD, PTSD, learning difficulties, dyslexia, and difficulties at school
    ➡ Misdiagnosis, what autistic people often get misdiagnosed with, and why
    ➡ Autistic people and CBT, what neurodivergent-affirming therapy can look like and the importance of the sensory aspect
    ➡ The challenges of being a content creator in the autism space
    ➡ Identity and terminology, and integrating our intersecting identities and unexplained experiences
     
    TRIGGER WARNING: brief mentions of mental health and self harming throughout, but not in any detail.

Speculating the Spectrum ,

One of my top 3 favorite podcasts on Autism

I love the content of this podcast and the interview style, actually letting people speak and not getting into a bunch of meaningless chitchat. Very laid back and contemplative. I actually feel calmer while listening to this. Please keep going!

IdaMay123 ,

A great place for self reflection

This podcast is a positive and affirming space to come and listen to folks who have had autistic journeys. Sometimes I feel like they are my twins and other times I find kindred spirits in stories so different from my own. The host is a great listener and I truly enjoy this podcast.

EVWilliams79 ,

Squarepeg is the best!

This is one of my all time favorite podcasts. Amy has done a great job of creating a community of late diagnosed autistic folks that are kind enough to share their experiences with the rest of us. If you’re autistic, think that you might be, or know someone who is - square peg is a must listen!
