‘A Mexican wave of flapping’
Listen now
In the final official episode of series 2, Robyn and Jamie respond to emails from listeners. Robyn’s advice for an autistic teenager on staying safe and getting by at school morphs into a geeky chat about ear defenders. Jamie explains why he takes Lego and colouring books to social gatherings and sits on the floor during work meetings. And listener Fritz teaches everybody his complicated clapping stim. Jamie is missing from the beginning and end of this podcast due to low energy levels during lockdown. But he’s safe and getting stronger, and plans are underway to record another coronavirus extra episode in June. With Robyn Steward and support bat Henry, Jamie Knight and Lion.
