Podcast about autistic people's intense interests

BBC Ouch are featuring a three-part podcast by autistic adults Robyn Steward and Jamie Knight, the first of which discusses autistic intense interests. They discuss their own interests and look at how they have been helpful in their lives and careers, as well as discussing how some interests can be problematic for individuals and their families. Robyn and Jamie also highlight concerns over the language used to describe autistic peoples’ interests, in which they are labelled as “special” or “obsessions”.
