What are you ‘obsessed’ with?

Robyn and Jamie talk to autistic people who just love Doctor Who and train timetables

It’s episode two and Robyn and Jamie are keen to share their ‘special interests’ with you, and talk to callers on our phone-out (not a phone-in) about their passions.

Sometimes thought of as negative, autistic people often have the ability to seriously focus on things that interest them and this is why the geek image has emerged. These days it tends to be seen as a positive skill which some employers are lapping up.

From sci-fi to computers and Rubik’s Cubes to Underground trains – plus a few surprises along the way. Listen and enjoy.
