This works to furthermore explore the different ways in which we all exist in the world.

Neurotypes, a neurodiversity podcast:

Neurotypes, a neurodiversity podcast is the first ever podcast at the Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The podcast provides listeners with the opportunity to hear authentic stories and valuable insights from both neurodivergent people and NHS clinicians who specialise in neurodiversity.

Whilst still a new podcast, the trust has big plans for future episodes, which will cover diagnosis, medication, and the unique experiences of neurodivergent people, with the aim of supporting anyone who is currently waiting for an assessment and those who have recently received a diagnosis.

One of the great things about Neurotypes, is the people behind the podcast want it to be a valuable resource for families and friends of neurodivergent people, to help them recognise, understand, and celebrate the people in your life who are Neurodivergent.

Real Life Response:

We couldn’t do a blog post recommending podcasts and not include our own. Real Life Response focuses on a mix of subjects, such as life stories and hot topics of the month and whilst our podcast doesn’t just focus on Neurodiversity, we have some fascinating episodes which delve into our Neurological differences, alongside some amazing guests/Response employees, who have been kind enough to share their own experiences.

Hosts, Beth and Em do a wonderful job of putting a light-hearted spin on some heavy subjects, which is why we always say, Real Life Response is the light, heavy hearted, full of love, place to be.

There are over ten episodes available for you to get stuck in to. You can listen here.


The next podcast on our list is for the movie lovers. Psychocinematic is Hosted by Stephanie Armour and combines her love of cinema and psychology, to create a podcast which is entertaining and educational, whilst also being a connection point for those who want to end mental health and disability stigma and ableism in media.

Each episode of Psychocinematic focuses on one Movie or TV show and investigates the accuracy of its disability representation. Readers must be warned however, Psychocinematic may ruin your favourite movie, but it does promise to do this with lots of humour and a few lessons along the way.
