It has been far too many month since I have posted an episode. There has been a huge amount going on in my life above and beyond all the changes the COVID pandemic has caused. Like many autistics I can easily get overstimulated and drained in the course of a normal day. Between COVID and joining Google through an acquisition and the changes it brings I get overstimulated and drained by the end of the work day. Unfortunately it leaves me fried for the day and no personal work happens that evening. Weekends have been mostly dedicated to hiding from the computer and trying to avoid anything that is draining. So nothing happens on weekends either other than Tim going over the top on his special interest as is his norm.Hoping this will be the first step in getting back to at least an episode every two weeks. We will see how fast I can get to this goal.Thanks for listening and please share with a friend who could benefit.

For the third year in a row I was invited to guest lecture a class at Cornell University. My topic was challenges autistic people face in interviews. It is such a rich topic, unfortunately for many on the spectrum a job interview is a way to decide you "are not a good fit" which in the USA is HR speak for, your not like us and it makes us uncomfortable so we will illegally discount you from consideration, but give a totally safe non-descriptive answer.You can download the presentation deck that goes with this talk here:Presentation Deck, Tim presents at Cornell Oct 2019For free resources and to learn more visit me at TimGoldstein.comAs always, if you know someone who you think Tim should interview please let us know.
