Episode 45: Autism

The second episode in our new series where we explore various aspects of health!

This episode, we're joined by Tyla Grant - an autism advocate behind the YouTube channel "Adulting Autistic." She talks us through what it's like being a Black woman diagnosed at 17, mental health, and why people need to stop talking about "curing" autism. Also there's chat about a terrible golden jumper.

We get to chat to neurodevelopmental psychologist Mary Agyapong. Based out of King's College London, her work looks at early signs and symptoms of Autism. We hear about the scientific advancements in diagnosis techniques and ask whether culture and language plays a role in how we perceive autism
