These days there are so many ways to access and share related autism spectrum information and connect with others within the autism community. Besides the autism magazines, Oprah, Jenny, Soap Operas, forums, camps, books, schools, online conferences, events, adults on the spectrum and online courses, there are now plenty of options through radio and podcasts.
Here is my compilation of radio programs that cover the spectrum on a number of topics and issues:
Disability News and Views Radio Show with Monica Moshenko has been around for many years with options to listen to programs before 2005. Monica has a teenager (Nick) on the spectrum and interviews celebrities, authors, students and related professionals. Check out Autism Tour to find out more about their journey around the country in a motor home.
Focus on Autism Podcast these programs are from the Kennedy Krieger Institute. You have the choice of listening to the podcast online or your iphone.
