A Mom Interviews Her Autistic Son

The latest podcast in Elana Afrika’s Parenting Series

Thursday April 2nd is World Autism Day. Autism is a word that carries so much weight, and often, misunderstanding. What exactly is autism spectrum disorder? Is it something that you as a parent have been confronted with? For the first time in this podcast series, not only do they interview an extraordinary mom, but also flip the script as this mom interviews her extraordinary son. Karen Jeynes is a TV producer and writer from Cape Town. In this podcast, she interviews her teen son Tim, shedding light on important questions around having an autistic child. The conversation is gripping and gives unparalleled insight into what day-to-day life is like for young Tim - from his perspective as well as his mother’s.

Hosted by Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp, the Baby Brunch | The Parenting Series podcast - supported by Fedhealth - features fun and insightful conversations with ordinary parents doing extraordinary things. These can serve as a source of support, inspiration and advice for parents, moms and moms-to-be as we delve into the unique experiences of diverse parents.

“My theme for the year is inclusiveness” says host Elana. “I want everyone to feel like they belong. Autism is something that’s close to my heart because as humans we exclude people that we don’t understand. I believe that through podcasts and conversations we can explain to people that different can be good and perhaps this can lead to us being better humans. We need to accept autism, but most importantly we need to accept each other”.

Elana Afrika’s Parenting Series is one of the most popular podcasts produced in South Africa, regularly ranking in the Top 10 in varying categories and themes.
