Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to speak for a few minutes on a new radio show called Autism America Radio on KTLK 1150 AM. This was my first time ever speaking on radio and it was a wonderful experience.
As someone diagnosed with autism at the age of 4, I mainly discussed my experience along with sharing one of my poems on the air. To even have the chance to express my thoughts on a major radio station in Los Angeles was very surreal. The hosts of the show, Film Producer Matthew Asner and Comedian Andrea Nittoli were very respectful and we ended up having a great conversation. To learn that there is an actual radio show now that discusses autism related topics was very exciting news.
I strongly encourage everyone to tune in next Saturday at 6 PM ET/3PT for the next showing of Autism America Radio. You can stream the entire show online here along with listen to previous shows through there podcast, available for free on Itunes here.
