Autism Matters -The Podcast
What a journey it has been, creating a Podcast for our Autistic community – A Story of Connection and Community
As an autistic person, finding a community where you feel understood, supported, and connected can be challenging. Many autistic adults tell us they feel isolated and excluded from mainstream society, which can lead to feelings of loneliness and depression.
So, when our group of autistic individuals came together with a shared vision of creating a podcast for the community, they knew it was something special. It took a while for the idea to develop and for the team to bring it to the world, but the end result was worth it.
The podcast, called “Autism Matters -The Podcast”, is a platform for autistic adults to come together, share their experiences, and connect with others who understand them. It’s a place where they can find information, support, and validation, and where they can feel less alone in a world that often doesn’t understand them.
Creating the podcast was a labour of love, and it took a lot of time and effort to make it a reality. We have set up lots of guest interviews, and have had some brilliant conversations.
We know we need to remain committed to our vision of creating a space where autistic adults can come together, share stories and experiences, and feel less alone. For us it is important to have a platform where we can talk openly about the challenges and successes we experience every day and find support from others who truly “get it”.
The podcast has already made a big impact in the community, with listeners across the world tuning in to hear episodes that cover everything from employment and volunteering, to relationships and house hunting and lots of self reflection and self-advocacy. As one listener put it, “it’s like hearing my own thoughts spoken out loud”. This is not a podcast about facts about Autism, this is real people talking about their lives, the good and bad, keeping it real!
So, for anyone who might be feeling issolated or needing connection, take a listen to our podcast and join us in our facebook group.
