April 8, 2010 | Newsletter Sent From My Blog

A Momologue first (podcast) and super-mega-great autism reads!

  Recently I had the opportunity to interview David Rudman, creator of “Bunnytown.” 

Rudman — also known for “Jack’s Big Music Show,” Baby Bear and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, and The Muppets — chatted about his silly carrot-loving bunnies.

You can listen to Rudman chat about his new series “Bunnytown” here. The podcast link is at the bottom of the post. 

Big thanks go out to Nick Belardes for spotlighting the podcast and autism awareness posts on ABC23 in Bakersfield, California.  

Oh yeah, if you listen carefully to the podcast, you can hear me ask Rudman a question about special needs kids and autism.

On that note, Autism Awareness Month is going strong. Everyday there are more bloggers joining forces and sharing their stories. We are currently 127 bloggers strong.

Adult diagnosis: Blessing or curse?

Autism is not another word for being a jerk

Empathy, according to some, is what makes humans “human.” Anne C., author of Existence is Wonderful, writes about her concern.

“My concern is that if autistic people are culturally defined as “lacking empathy”, and if people aren’t exceedingly careful to define their terms (which they often aren’t), and if “empathy” is widely considered to be a precursor to conscience, then we’re basically being written off straight from the get-go.” Read the full post here.
