The Autistic Me blog launched in 2007. This podcast extends the blog and allows us to reach a wider audience. Episodes often feature autistic guests, speaking about their life experiences.

John Ordover is a man of many talents. A creative consultant, a writer, an editor, and a stand-up comic. He’s even appeared as an extra in some of my favorite television shows. John also advocates for the autistic community as the father of an autistic young adult and the partner of an autistic wife. I first met John virtually while he was finishing his book Lie There and Lose Weight: How I Lost 100 Pounds by Doing Next to Nothing. I came to know John as a proud parent who celebrates his son’s accomplishments instead of mourning his son’s autism. As an autistic parent, I appreciate the positive attitude John brings to our community.

John also happens to be the co-creator of the book series Star Trek: New Frontier. My wife and I enjoy Star Trek, so I hope to slip in a bit of Trek talk during this episode.
