I’ve been blogging almost five years.

Recently a reader asked me, “When are you going to start a podcast for Aspergers/Autism people?"

Little did he know that I’ve been dreaming about starting a podcast for the last couple of years, but I’d been too overwhelmed or afraid to do so.

The time has finally come to introduce the Thrive with Aspergers podcast!

In this episode:

  • I share a bit about myself

(If you’re not a regular newsletter subscriber, sign up to find out 25 facts about me — it’s one of the first emails you’ll get from me)

  • I explore the mission of the podcast, who the podcast is for, and how I plan to structure the show, including interviews with autism/Aspergers men and women, researchers, and experts on various topics.

Links and Resources from the Show:

Brant Hansen is a Christian DJ, blogger. I talk about how I can relate to some of his challenges growing up. His father is a pastor. My father is a pastor and missionary. He grew up feeling different. I grew up feeling different (mainly as a third culture kid). Both of us, despite our struggles, came back to our Christian roots in our faith journey.

Check out his story in the following video:

Lynn Soraya, a woman with Aspergers, author of Living Independently with Autism, wrote this quote, which I added to the end of the episode.

When living with a neurological condition (or with a loved one who has one), it can be very easy to focus on the challenges and limitations. But in my life, I have found that focusing on abilities, finding new ways to adapt, have been crucial to my successes in life. Seeking those solutions can even be seen as a form of creativity.
