Falling off the chair laughing
Listen now
In the office, we call this the show where Robyn falls off her chair laughing - because that's what happens. We're nothing if not extremely literal, you know. Stand-up comedian and poet Kate Fox joins our two autistic hosts and the talk turns to comedy, anxiety and some brilliant analysis of well-known jokes to work out where the funny bits lie. Why, for instance, is the one about the chicken crossing the road funny? Or the sticky brown stick? Lots in here for autistic people, parents and others who want an insight into how we all think differently. With Robyn Steward and Jamie Knight.
