This program is a place for discussion of issues around Autism and related topics - mental health, education, employment, inclusion, identity and cultural differences between Autistic and non-autistic people. Jeanette usually interviews guests who are doing good work in the Autism community.
This episode is a little different as Jeanette interviews a non-autistic disability advocate, Wayne Herbert. Wayne recently published a book called ‘Anecdotes of a Disabled gay' which includes reflection on his life as a gay man with disability. The book is at times very funny but also looks at difficult issues like bullying and homophobia and ableism. Jeanette and Wayne talk about disability,sexuality, identity, growing up in country Australia and Lady Gaga, among other things.
