Well, hello there. We’re your hosts, Gwen and Kristen, nice to meet you. This is the very first episode of You Don’t Want a Hug, Right? If you’re looking for honest and often irreverent conversations about parenting humans with neurodiversity, then you are in the right place.
In today’s episode, we’re sharing our mission and our perspective, not lessons or lectures. We’re also giving you an introduction not only to us and our goals and values, but also to our children, because their voice is just as important as ours. We’re so excited to share from our proverbial couch to yours. Let’s get started!
In this episode, you’ll learn...
[02:15] How we met (spoiler: there was alcohol and fried food involved)
[07:13] Some quirky background info you should know about us
[12:51] The story behind the name, “You Don’t Want a Hug, Right?”
[15:25] Our goals for this podcast, especially helping you to remember that you’re a whole human being outside of being a parent
