John Ordover on Parenting and More

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. SATURDAY, MAY 8, 2021, AT 7:45 PM CDT – 9:30 PM CDT FULLY IMMUNIZED LIVE ORDOVER!

Autism Awareness Month

It's my thirteenth annual rant about Autism Awareness Day and Month. If you’re an autistic, let us promote Autistic Pride Month together. Join me. Do you want to be an ally? Tell people that April is Autistic Pride Month and a month for learning about autistics and their history. It’s April 2 as I record this episode and I’m already tired of the ads I’m seeing on television, hearing on the radio, and reading online. I can’t wait for April to end so I don’t feel so frustrated and angry.   The Autistic Me on Social Media Blog: Podcast: Facebook: Twitter: YouTube: LinkedIn: Check out this episode!
