I am a huge fan of Richard Fidler’s Conversations on ABC Radio (Queensland and New South Wales), and not just because Seana and I were guests on the show in 2008. I’m not sure why listeners in other states in Australia don’t get to hear the interviews live. Fidler is a terrific, funny interviewer and his questions always get to the hub of the matter.
World Asperger’s syndrome expert and author, Dr Tony Attwood, now lives in Queensland with Fidler and has been a guest on Conversations more than once. You can see (or rather hear) why he’s been invited back, as he is a wonderful raconteur. The fact that Attwood genuinely likes and understands his patients shines through in interviews and I love him for that.
He was recently on Conversations talking specifically about women with Asperger’s, who certainly do exist but often go through life undiagnosed, although the conversation didn’t end there. It was wide-ranging and amusing. I highly recommend you listen and enjoy. The link is here.
