ASD-Friendly Podcasts!

Podcasts are terrific. Many of us use them as a welcome point of focus and a deeply satisfying social experience. Bonus: People leave you blissfully alone while you listen the day away.

Podcasts allow you to mainline all the reliable, comforting voices you want as they deliver the new info you crave. You can listen to the same episode or segment of an episode over and over as many times as you like and no one will ask you why or to turn it down or when you’re going to listen to something else.

Here, in no particular order, is a selection of podcasts made by autistic adults for autistic adults. Each should be available through your favourite podcast provider (such as iTunes, PodBean, Stitcher, Spotify, etc.)

Support autistic art and enterprise by subscribing and sharing your faves. As always, if something is missing from the list, let us know asap and we’ll see what we can do.


As with all our resources, this page will be updated periodically. Check back to see what’s new!
