LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ —
The Autism Network’s newest podcast, STORIES FROM THE SPECTRUM: CONTENT BY AND FOR A NEURODIVERSE WORLD, debuts its second episode featuring short films created by artists who identify as being on the Autism Spectrum or as being Neurodiverse. Viewers can watch the premiere of episode 2 on Friday May 20th by visiting here.
STORIES FROM THE SPECTRUM Episode 2 showcases four videos featuring neurodiverse voices and points of view. Dr. Kerry Margo ED.D, CAS kicks things off with a fun interview with author, entrepreneur, and YouTube star Olivia Hops. Hops, known for her edible cookie dough recipes and her upbeat, plainspoken views on the being female on the spectrum, tells us what things we should not say to people on the spectrum and why – as well as sharing her favorite autism resources.
Spencer Griffin joins collaborators from Spectrum Laboratory for his soul full original song: ASPERGER’S.
Dani Bowman, of LOVE ON THE SPECTRUM US fame, delivers part 2 of a series that details how she came to be an award-winning filmmaker, animator, educator, and entrepreneur as a teenager, despite doctors declaring she would not be able to succeed.
Lastly, Ian Wegher-Thompson shows us his take on happiness, in a cute video that was originally created for an assignment in a Spec Labs storytelling class during lockdown.
Says Executive Producer, Shannon Penrod, “What all of these videos have in common is the unique viewpoint of individuals on the spectrum and their quest to be successful, happy people who are treated with dignity and respected for their contributions.” She adds, “They are artists in their own right, with stories the world needs to hear. What we have done is created a space to showcase their work for the world to see. We especially hope employers are watching. There is a talent pool here that has been largely overlooked.
Artists featuring original works in STORIES FROM THE SPECTRUM were paid for their work through a grant from Autism Care Today. The grant encourages the promotion, nurturing, and employment of artists on the spectrum.
