#47 Nathan Basha and Matt O'Neil
Listen now
In this episode we have not one, but TWO amazing guests with Down syndrome. First up is Nathan Basha whose parents were given three choices when he was born - they could ‘institutionalise’ him, adopt him out or take him home. Thankfully they chose to take him home, and Nathan has flourished into an articulate young man passionate about teaching others how great living with Down syndrome can be. Next up is Matt O’Neil, who chats to Dylan and Angus about his love of hip hop dancing and working out at the gym, what his ideal first date looks like, and why it’s important to give people with Down syndrome employment opportunities.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
