Why Doing Media Interviews Is Hard for Me as a Person With Autism

Reading now: 534

I recently had a podcast interview with Fully Booked by Kirkus Media about my book “Love Is Too Hard: The Dating (Mis)Adventures of a Man With Autism.” I’ve also done a couple of appearances on a local talk show called PA Live.

I get so excited when I have to do interviews. However, when it comes time to do the interview thousands or even millions are going to see, I get very nervous.

I have trouble processing language as a person on the autism spectrum. I also struggle with memory problems at times. That prevents me from being fully successful when doing podcasts or other types of media interviews.
