Spectrum Projection

SPOSHA Podcasts

Spectrum Projection is a media review podcast where we analyse characters who may fit into the autism spectrum. Hosted by Hannah (an actually autistic person with a Masters in disabilities in literature) and Tilda (who has to deal with her ramblings). We review anything that we features characters that remind us of people on the spectrum: film, tv, video games and books. We upload every two weeks (more or less...)
