What journey did Steve go on when writing Neurotribes? How was autism first developed? What is the Geek Syndrome?
In this episode of the Thoughty Auti Podcast, Thomas Henley is joined by Steve Silberman to talk about the history and future of autism - Steve is a multi-award winning writer, former writer for Wired and Ally Of The Year award winner for his contributions to the autistic community!
They start of the podcast talking about two authors Steve had involvement with during the development stages of their books - Alex Riley in A Cure For Darkness & Dara McAnulty in Diary Of A Young Naturalist - and the background to these standout writers.
With the daunting reality of COVID-19, Steve highlights the sly endorsements of eugenics during the pandemic, further exploring the affect COVID has had on the autistic people. In a welcome discussion, the two talk about the recent topic of self diagnosis and Steve’s recent award... the Samuel Johnson Prize.
Steve started his research into autism following a tech giant cruise across the Alaskan Panhandle where he met the renowned Larry Wall, the inventor of the innovative programming language PERL. In an investigative piece ‘The Geek Syndrome’ Steve ignored the ramblings of scared parents around the ‘epidemic of autism’ in Silicon Valley, pressing on to look at the strengths demonstrated by autistic tech entrepreneurs.
Steve became obsessed with autism and its complex history, pouring his heart, soul and money into the formation of Neurotribes. Highlighting the misconceptions around the conceptualisation of Aspergers Syndrome and the little known past of Asperger’s Jewish colleagues, the two delve into the developments that may lie in the future.
Thank you so much if you’ve listened through all the episodes; it’s been an amazing season and I’m definitely looking forward to bring you an even better season... very soon!
