The Autism Podcast

Welcome to the page for My Kid's Got the Autism podcast!

It's a podcast from a dad who has no idea what he's doing...

It's a podcast for parents with autism in the family... or for people who know nothing about autism.

It's a podcast with stories and anecdotes and lessons and maybe even some wisdom -- though you get what you pay for.

Hope you enjoy, and contact the show at mykidsgottheautism@gmail.com

LATEST EPISODE 

TELL ME ABOUT NOVEMBER PLEASE (Ep 21)
That one day when I went away for the weekend and everything fell apart -- people got sick, people went away, the kid and his dad spent over two weeks on their own, and having to tell Campbell about death for the first time.

It's an episode from the heart, telling a story that needed to be personally said out loud in order to move on with the show and to put an insane November behind us.
