‘Do you ever forget to update your face?’
Listen now
Robyn and Jamie are back for series two of 1800 Seconds on Autism. They kick off Episode 1 by chatting about some of the emails you sent in and catching-up with two listeners who got in touch. First, 17-year-old Hannah, who says the podcast helps her feel less weird and alone. She wants to know why some think autistic people don’t have empathy. Jamie busts that myth by recalling the time he offered his bank card to a needy stranger on the Tube. Then there’s Rachel, whose love of horses and need to wear the same clothes every day have contributed to her wish to join the police force. The mum of one also shares her hopes and fears for her toddler son’s future. We’ll be recording some mini extra episodes about being autistic in the time of coronavirus, so please do get in touch and let us know how things are going for you during lockdown - e-mail [email protected] With Robyn Steward, support bat Henry, Jamie Knight and Lion.
