213: Do I Have Aspergers Syndrome?


Picture: Did George Orwell have it too?

Recorded live 4-25-13 with Osborne and Tony (the School Sucks Project webmaster).

Our discussion grows out of an Aspergers questionnaire we all took before the show. Tony and I both scored in the Aspergers range and Osborne came in just below it. We spend the show going through the questions and evaluating our related patterns of behaviors and thoughts.

  1. I process podcasts before I listen to them. So, I listen to you at 48kb sped up. You could offer a 128k high quality one and a low quality 64k one. If you have a Youtube channel I suppose I could just download it from there and process it into an mp3.

    Just some thoughts on how to cut costs. Of course, it would be more work to put up two separate files.

  2. Maybe Asbergers is just another way of saying very high IQ?
