Audible Autism - Interesting Questions and Interesting Facts
Audible Autism is a podcast that aims to give voice to autistic people from our own internal perspective. It is made for autistic people, by autistic people. We’re looking to talk about autism, and things that would be interesting to autistic people. We’re not trying to explain ourselves to NT people to ask them for acceptance into their world. Other people do that. This is for us.
