I’ve listened to this podcast for years and have mostly really enjoyed it, but in the recent episode “Unpacking Pop Psychology w/Seerut K. Chawla” Jameela makes several inaccurate and harmful statements about autism/autistic people while using outdated, ableist and antisemitic terminology and functioning labels. I would normally assume a person speaking this way is just uneducated, but she’s had multiple autistic guests on the podcast in the past year to speak specifically about autism. It feels difficult to believe she didn’t learn or internalize why her statements are problematic while researching for those episodes or during the episodes themselves. As an autistic person, I’m disappointed and simply don’t feel comfortable listening to a podcast that perpetuates this kind of disinformation.
