Podcasts are the bombdiggity. Now that it’s totes normcore to have earbuds permanently embedded, people leave you blissfully alone while you listen the day away (for now). Podcast allow you to mainline all the reliable, comforting voices you can stand as they deliver the new info you crave. You can listen to the same episode or segment of an episode over and over as many times as you like and no one will ask you why or to turn it down or when you’re going to listen to something else. Bliss.
This is a selection of pro-adult-autie podcasts as well as ones that offer useful general life advice (if only for better understanding non-autistic people). Each should be available through your favourite podcast provider (such as iTunes, PodBean, Stitcher, Spotify, etc.) As always, if something is missing from the list, let us know asap and we’ll see what we can do.
