Today's episode is a bit different, because I won't be doing any interviewing - I'm flying solo. It's been a rough week for us all, because my father-in-law died on Monday afternoon, and he was just a great guy. A coach, a teacher, a veteran, a lifelong athlete, and a kind and gentle man.

I'm feeling nostalgic, so I wanted to give a look back and give you guys a quick guide to our previous episodes to help you find a good one you might have missed. ??

The episodes from the parent perspective are:?

Numbers 4 & 5 with Keri Bowers, fillmaker and art therapist on raising a son on the spectrum? Number 7 with Dan Korins on his son, who has an amazing voice? Number 8 with Rupert Isaacson, NYT best-selling author and filmmaker of "The Horse Boy" Number 12 with my husband Jeff Waites, on raising the Romanator? Number 14 with Wayne Gilpin, author, and autism book and magazine publisher? Number 18 with Kara Wilson, on raising a daughter with Asperger's? Number 21 with Margret Ericsdottir, filmmaker and mom of a nonverbal teenaged boy? Number 28 with Cynthia Lord, NYT best-selling children's author, and mom to a young adult son with autism Number 29 with Julie Cole, entrepreneur and mother of 6 kids, the oldest of whom has autism??

Writing from the first-hand perspective of autism

Episode 2 with Temple Grandin, autism rock star Episodes 9 & 10 with Jennifer McIlwee Myers, Aspie and author Episode 23 with Tom Angleberger, Aspie, NYT best-selling author of a series of kids books with Aspie main characters??

The sibling perspective is highlighted with my own kids in episode 6??

Authors- we have a bunch in the parent category (Rupert Isaacson, Wayne Gilpin, Cynthia Lord), but also:?

Episode 3 with James Ball, chair of the national Autism Society and autism behavioral consultant? Episode 20 with scholar, NYT best-selling author and speaker Andrew Solomon?

And then there are therapists and therapies on?

Episode 13 with Alisa Anderson on adaptive ski? Episode 16 with Sarah Bronson on therapeutic horseback riding Episode 17 with Jill Schacht on occupational therapy? Episode 19 with Elizabeth Mortati on art therapy? Episode 25 with Rachel See on music therapy

??School & Home focused:?

We talk in-home support in number 11 with Lauren O'Neil? We talk school inclusion in episode 24 with Tim Villegas??

Episode 22 with Eric Tivers is about how ADHD tends to co-occur with autism??

And then there are two episodes not specifically related to autism, but to being different:

Episode 1 with NYT best-selling author, wine expert and social media guru Gary Vaynerchuk? Episode 27 with NYT best-selling author, magazine publisher, super nice guy, and business consultant Chris Brogan??

And the last episodes I haven't mentioned are about Kid Gigawatt (that's us!)?

Number 15 is about why we sell t-shirts to microfund therapies for kiddos with autism? Number 26 is about the road trip documentary movie we're making this summer??

And today is episode 30, so there you have it! And after 4 planes and a funeral, what I'd really love more than anything, is to hear from you. Please email me your funny stories from Autismland, I'd love to put together an episode together just with some of the bright spots. So when we're feeling a bit blue, we can have a good laugh. Email me at kelley@kidgigawatt.com- I'm counting on you! :)?
