Balmer (autism, parenting, Twitch) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #514
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
This week Pip is joined by Twitch legend BALMER to talk all things parenting and indeed, Twitch!
The term 'Twitch legend' is doing all sorts of work there, and for those uninitiated, you may need some assistance. Twitch is the livestreaming platform for people to either observe or take part in art, sports, gaming, music, every conceivable activity that can be filmed essentially. Within appropriate broadcast law, obvs. Gaming happens to be Balmer's chosen discipline (with some improv and role play in there too), and as one of Pip's favourite streamers there must be a reason for him to guest on DPP right? Correct. Balmer is not only a truly unique gamer with a wild and memorable presence, he is also a parent of an autistic son. He and Pip catch up on everything involved with that part of the story, which is fascinating and inspiring, shedding light on the 'system' as we know it, and how it works with and against this area of neurodivergence. While the episode does deal with parenting and Twitch, those who are not parents nor Twitch afficionados may be confident in knowing it's a lovely episode with warmth and awesomeness throughout. Maybe you don't know the name (yet) - but trust that it's a lovely ep.
