213 Things About Me is a podcast series which tells the true story of ‘Rose’, who was diagnosed with autism aged 36 and took her own life six months later. 213 Things About Me is told through a list of Rose’s traits, which she made immediately after being diagnosed with Autism. 213 Things About Me is written, directed and narrated by award-winning, disabled documentary filmmaker, photographer, artist, published writer and investigative journalist Richard Butchins, who was a close friend of Rose. Richard is also on the autistic spectrum.
Me and Lowri reflect on the series, including how it relates to my own experience of being autistic.
