My Kid's Got the Autism

It's a podcast about a father's journey with an autistic kid. Storytelling, experience, the highs, the lows, and all in between. Really, its just a dad who has no idea what he's doing.
Tell Me About November Please
That one day when I went away for the weekend and everything fell apart -- people got sick, people went away, the kid and his dad spent over two weeks on their own, and having to tell Campbell about death for the first time. It's an episode from the heart, telling a story that needed to be personally said out loud in order to move on with the show and to put an insane November behind us.
